Quite simply the best we've ever stayed in...

  • 5 of 5

First, and foremost, excellent communication and advice from the owners made the process such a pleasant and reassuring experience, with an arrival phone call too, providing a lovely and welcoming touch. The villa is even more charming than the photos suggest, set in a fabulous location with all the privacy you could desire. A glorious, quiet rural area with a delightful village shop in easy cycling distance, stocking all your basic needs. Delicious pain au chocolate too. Great supermarkets are a short drive away. The thoughtful owners have even provided the bikes along with lots of outdoor games like badminton, fishing rods to name but a few. The village hosts a tennis court which we used daily. Perfectly situated for easy access to all the lovely towns and villages in the area, the house has a very large and very well maintained saline pool, which was a godsend, as our daughter is allergic to chlorine. The garden is a true paradise, with hammocks among the shading trees helping to cool everyone down. The accommodation is really well appointed, has a wet room, homely touches of extra linen / kitchen supplies and lovely, thoughtful touches giving a really warm welcome. Everything you could possibly require, and more, is provided for you and the quality is unbeatable. The housekeeper, living locally, is an extremely helpful and delightful person. The house is a true home from home rather than a bleak, sterile holiday rental - you can imagine it is your own oasis away from the madding crowds. Lots of games, films, space to relax, a fabulous gas bbq and a delightful loft room with a pool table where we regularly argued whether it was ok to touch the black ball during shots !! Wardrobe storage, a source of great annoyance in many of our previous villa rentals, is excellent, with sufficient hangers to satisfy even those arriving with bulging suitcases. Helpful guides to the area's attractions and appliance instructions are all provided. Quite honestly, the best rental experience we have had in our 14 years of renting villas in Europe. Highly recommended. Well done Janet and John. A sterling job of providing us with a fabulously comfortable holiday experience.
