What a fabulous place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! A simply stunning house that had absolutely everything that you may need to make your stay welcoming and relaxing. We booked very last minute and Patricia (the owner) was very accommodating, ensuring that everything was ready for our arrival, and genuinely making us feel completely at home and relaxed as soon as we arrived, which was just perfect, as we were only staying for a week, so to feel instantly settled was fabulous.

The facilities and standard of accommodation are simply superb at this house, and Patricia was not only very welcoming and friendly, but was also just a phone call away for any queries or advice.

The outdoor space is just as stunning as the indoor space, with a beautiful pool, spacious grounds and a lovely short stroll into the village.

Overall, absolutely 5 star in every respect, and we will shortly be booking our next break at Le Repaire....Only it'll be 2 weeks this time!!

Thank you Patricia for a wonderfully relaxing week away, see you next year!!

A wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from the holiday of a lifetime at Le Repaire! Patricia is the perfect host - so friendly and accommodating. The house itself is gorgeous - superbly designed and decorated throughout. The highlights for us however were outside - the pool, the beautiful seating and dining areas and the scenery. We were treated to amazing weather and spent a number of nights stargazing - the Milky Way is very visible at night! We will definitely be returning - thanks Patricia!

A secret paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are two architects who stayed at Le Repaire for our honeymoon in September. We only stayed for a week but it was a fabulous stay. The house has everything you need and we mean everything. We were amazed at the quality of finish achieved for this recently refurbished farmhouse and had the whole house to ourselves for the stay. The owner, Patricia has created a fabulous place to stay, with a private entrance gate, a sheltered car port, a private outdoor pool and plenty of land for walking. The house is in a village, which has its own food market - a must see, and a restaurant with amazing food.

If you stay here, you will not be disappointed, whether there are two of you or more. This is a secluded hide-away with picturesque views, fruit trees and a typically French interior. Enjoy!

Stunning spacious property,superb location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply stunning in size design and location. Spacious rooms with quality furnishing's and attention to detail are seen throughout the house. There are 3 different patio areas all with quality seating and a great pool. The location is superb, peace and tranquility but only 15minutes walk to the village. Plenty of thing's to see and do nearby but I can assure you it will be difficult to leave the property.

Patricia the owner could not have been more helpful and we look forward to visiting you again soon.
