The region is absolutely gorgeous and well worth a visit. We had excellent weather and therefore were able to take long walks with our dog. The nights were cool but the log fire made the cottage very cosy (Norman had fire ready when we arrived and bags of logs in the shed). The cottage has all the facilities needed for a short break away and the wifi was very useful. Norman and Sue were very quick with e-mail replies and were helpful in recommending a local vet (at Oradur). We would highly recommend the cottage and the area!

We have thoroughly enjoyed everyday here spending time by the pool, out for walks, runs, and fun trips out! Parc Zoo du Reynou is definitely worth a visit, a great trip out for young children. Relaxing evenings playing in the games room and also watching DVD's, beautiful sunsets and skies. We hope to visit again. Thank you for the perfect holiday!
