About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Dear Ian and Cath
Back from France - so just a short note to say that we had a really good
holiday there (castles, caves, canoeing, kayaking, eating too much!).
We've stayed in many properties in France over the years and yours was, in
all honesty, probably the best we've ever had - the children said so too.
We had everything we needed and everything worked very well - we had no
problems with anything. The house was very clean and tidy when we got there
(the cleanest & tidiest property we've ever walked into) and the pool was
superb. The chap turned up in a very french van to cut the grass one day
and another chap turned up to attend to the pool another day.
It's a great house and it works very well - we were very sorry to leave - we
wished we'd booked 4 weeks and not 2!
Many thanks and Best Wishes,
Mark, Jane, Rachel & Daniel ******" (Derbyshire)
