Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We have had the most amazing 3 weeks at Le Chardon. The listing description is accurate. The house is very well equipped and very clean. The pool and garden are very well maintained. The copy of the house book is very useful for trips and restaurants in the area. The house is suitable for all ages and there were all facilities that we required.

We felt very comfortable and hope that we can return again soon.

Returning this year

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Le Chardon last June and enjoyed all the comforts, privacy and the many facilities and conveniences that the property provides.

We are going back this year and expect to enjoy another great holiday in France.

The description of the property, location and facilities is accurate.

The property is in excellent condition, very well equipped, with good customer service and the contact numbers provided are so useful when you are on holiday.

So many restaurants and café restaurants to choose from we never got bored.

The great thing about this holiday is the privacy around the house and the proximity all the local facilities. We are going back this year.
