Family Holiday in France
On arrival at Le Pont Dauphin we were met by Frank and Chris and shown around the property ....... quite simply the house was amazing ....... the pictures do not do it justice, it was perfect and just what we wanted!! We had a fantastic week and by following the recommendations of Frank and Chris we had both days out (local market, restaurants and visits: the fun park being the highlight) and days lounging by the pool enjoying the facilities. I would most certainly recommend this property to anyone that wants a nice quiet family holiday in a rural location........ Perfect holiday and great value for money!!! Thank you Frank and Chris.
