The local village has everything you might need - an excellent boulangerie, butcher, general food & wine store, post office & cash-point, chemist & doctor's surgery, a tabac/bar & restaurants.
The house has everything you could desire... Peycibeau is very much a home from home holiday rental - indeed for the rest of the year it is our own home!
For this reason you will find everything is of a very good quality and the house is beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable and very well appointed.
Both the kitchen and the summer-house are well equipped with all the necessary appliances and kitchenware, and by popular demand we have recently installed a dishwasher in the summer-house too!
During your stay, the property is fully managed and the swimming pool and grounds are maintained daily by our (off-site) staff.
These days, internet access is essential - even on holiday - and the property has excellent WiFi coverage, including around the pool and summerhouse!
