Three generations of our family have just had one of the best-ever holidays at La Foun. The house is in such a beautiful setting, the local people were very friendly and helpful and the weather was ideal. Any minor problems and queries (eg: "How do you light a gas oven?") were swiftly and good-naturedly dealt with by the local agent - who even brought us milk and bread after a late arrival on Saturday evening.
There was always plenty to do - both for the more energetic and for those who just wanted to relax. One member of the family elected to cycle the 75km Circuit Bastide Royale, passing through most of the local Bastide towns; another wondered why anyone who could sit on the terrace at la Foun with a book would need to go anywhere else! The rest of us were happy to swim; visit Villereal, Montpazier, Beaumont, some nearby chateaux and a vineyard; sketch by the lake; go for a pre-breakfast run; play boules or chess; talk to the cats or simply enjoy the peace.
The house itself is comfortable, spacious and very well-equipped and we did appreciate the way it has been brought up to date without losing its essential character.
We are all now returned to our normal routines but I think each of us, from 6 to 76 years old, will carry many happy memories of La Foun for years to come.
