Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a wonderful time and our four children have really enjoyed their freedom in the garden. We enjoyed cycling on the family friendly cycle paths along the River Creuse…and horse-riding in Chaillac …We look forward to returning…

My family… and I have had a lovely time here at Les Hirondelles …Lucie and Ian have been quite simply marvellous hosts, who take a genuine pride in what they do.

Of equal delight has been the gîte and local area. We will be back for sure!

Matthew & Lynne, Southampton

Lovely place, lovely welcome, fantastic place for relaxing. We enjoyed swimming and kayaking in the lake. The kids fished and caught catfish. Great place for bike riding.

Relaxing family holiday in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here on a number of occasions and we couldn't have asked for a better holiday, We have been here both with family and with friends and it suits us perfectly.

The cottages are finished to a high standard with brilliant self catering facilities. We felt very comfortable and had everything we needed.

The garden has lots of play equipment and games - our 5 year old son was never bored! He especially liked the swimming pool and the playhouse.

There are also lots of fun days out and different activities to try. There are plenty of leaflets and information about these in the cottage.

We would definitely recommend Les Hirondelles and will continue to return there as often as possible.

St Civran

  • 4 of 5

Really comprehensive information sent beforehand and given during stay. Kind and thoughtful hosts and a lovely part of France for cycling and doing nothing. House was lovely and clean with great bath and plenty of space for lots of people. Lovely garden and lots of games to keep everyone happy. Only downside is that house is full of laminated sheets giving detailed instructions on how to use toilet, cooker, the bin etc in english! and a no smoking sign in every room including the toilets! Also make sure you bring your own cafetiere if you need a decent coffee in the morning.
