Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house in an amazing location. Enjoyed using the golf course with the children and exploring the local area. We had a great week visiting beaches, villages, markets and the cheese factory! Ate and drank lots and enjoyed being outside at this amazing farm house. Perfect for our two families to share. We hope to come again one summer.

'Un petit coin de paradis'

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful house in a magical setting. Perfect for markets, outings to the coast, incredible cheese and total rest as it is so peaceful. We had a very happy time with our two teenage sons, enjoying the house, eating outside, playing table-tennis in the garden and losing countless balls on the little golf course. Marie and Daniel could not have been more welcoming and thoughtful and that made our stay all the more enjoyable. We will be back!

So Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful property in a rural setting which just oozes character & provides the opportunity for complete relaxation.We booked a long weekend & our only regret was we couldn't stay longer, we did nothing but chill, drink good French wine, BBQ & sit outside admiring the view. We did manage a few holes of golf on the course which is an added benefit. The house has so much character, a beautiful kitchen & everything you need for a great holiday, the only thing it would benefit from would be a bathroom or loo upstairs but it certainly didn't impact on our stay & is a preference rather than anything else. The current bathroom is downstairs. Both Marie & Daniel were fantastic hosts, thank you both. We'll definitely return with the golf mad parents as it's a little gem in fantastic surroundings which gave us an opportunity to recharge our batteries.
