Everything was well appointed inside & out. Perfect swimming pool for young children due to the wide shallow stepped area. Lovely quiet location, but still easy to access the whole Cap area. We would certainly stay again.

The house felt like an oasis, a beautifully designed resort that was both luxurious and perfect for two families with two kids. Blandine and her family were the perfect hosts. Great communicators before and afterwards, attentive enough to see us into the property, making sure we knew all the in's and outs. Then relaxed enough to leave us to enjoy ourselves. We spent the week jumping in the pool, cycling to the beach, out to lunch and reading books... Perfect.

We were 4 adults and 2 children and we all loved it. The heated pool was absolutely lovely. The covered outside dining and seating area is perfect for a bit of shade. The owners greated us on arrival , showed us around and left us to our holiday. We had a fault with the electric garage door which was fixed the same day. The village of Lege is a short cycle ride away and there are lots of places to visit and perfect beaches only a 15 minute drive (or slightly longer cycle) . Overall a great holiday!
