This house is beautiful and Johan was very helpful and accommodating, give us great advice about where to go for some superb river swimming and cliff jumping.
The house is beautiful. Clearly a huge effort has been made to make it look so amazing.
Each bedroom has air conditioning - a welcome relief from a very hot summer.
The eating space near the kitchen is simply lovely.
Kitchen well equipped with a massive fridge
Seating areas all over the place - indicative of a proper farmhouse conversion. A cranny for everyone.
Fantastic boule court with lights so an evening game a joy.
The pool is gorgeous (although a bit too warm but that's weather related, it was scorchio) not the normal blue tile and it's salt water which is just gorgeous.
Johan was super helpful. We had a couple of issues (unwanted visitor in the kitchen) and it was dealt with swiftly. We weren't too needy but I imagine all issues that came up would be dealt with.
The flies! It's a beautiful, stunning farmhouse but that means it's smack bang in the middle of an organic farm, in the peak of summer. I do not exaggerate when I say that in certain places, at certain times, there were swarms. There is a very strict no window open policy which means that the non air conditioned living areas are airless and stuffy which is a real shame. There are fly nets on most of the windows but some of them were broken so unable to open windows. The first day was challenging but you quickly get used to how to operate without letting them in the house.
Wasps by the pool. Bizarrely, between 12-4pm the pool area was covered with wasps (obviously their thirsty period) of many number. We got in to the habit of swimming in the morning, going off to do something else for the afternoon and then returning to swim in the evening. However, on the one day we did stay at the pool between those hours, whilst irritating, the wasps were totally non aggressive and we left each other alone and I'm sure, change from year to year, weather dependent.
So, my only two gripes with the house were flies and wasps, neither of which are in control by man.
We had an amazing holiday and I would definitely return.
