The outside of the house is definitely the stonger draw, (though the inside is satisfactory) - large garden, pretty good sized pool, table tennis, table football, & a football goal. We hired a bike & trailer to supplement our own bikes and very much enjoyed the 30 min cycle trail through the forest to the wonderful beach but you could drive in 10 mins if you prefer. It's a drive to the best restaurants; and a bit longer drive to the water park. We may well return - this is good value for money for this side of the bassin.

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.

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!
