Pascal was very nice and hospitable and we were able to converse through an app he uses on his iPad.
The house is beautifully situated in a small village which has no amenities but is very picturesque was not a problem.
The property is as you see it on the photos and you won't be disappointed, and the pool is very private and has some small trees if you need to get out the sun, as it was very hot when we were there.
The barbecue was traditional and a large enough area to cook for 8 of us no problem.
Some tips that you might find interesting, St Florentin is about 6 miles away and is a straight Rd in. It has a nice feel to it and there are a few supermarkets which we tried and found ATAC was the cheapest and well equipped.
We visited Paris for a few days and travelled by train direct from St. Florentin station. We booked a taxi to take us from the house to the station which was very expensive (about €23) and the return taxi never turned up. In hindsight we should have left one of the cars in the station car park which we were told afterwards would have been perfectly safe.
So back to the property, there are 4 double bedrooms, although one of the rooms is accessed through one of the other rooms, but as we were family it was not a problem.
There is only one toilet and it is situated downstairs so might be a problem for some. There is only one shower room with two basins so showering can be congested, however, there is a shower by the pool which we used also. The hot water does run out quite quickly but as the weather was so hot we had cool showers so was not really a problem.
The kitchen was big and well equipped with a large table and 8 chairs.
The lounge was spacious with a large tv.
Overall I would like to have given this property 5 stars as we had an amazing holiday and spent so much time around the heated pool chilling out, and if I had the chance I would have given it 4.5 stars because I would recommend this property to anyone but realistically the reason I haven't given it 5 is the lack of toilet facilities upstairs and probably needed another bathroom, but thank you Pascal as you have a lovely house and pool area and the position is beautiful.
The hosts were brilliant most welcoming and helpful when we arrived and on hand for anything we might need. The property is in an old farm building with an open barn (complete with pet chicken - great eggs) at one end. There is an additional small building if needed which we did as there were seven adults and a baby in our party. The heated pool was brilliant and kept clean by our host daily. The garden and outdoor facilities were really spacious and excellent for relaxation and ball games. The garden looked out over the fields and the rural tranquillity was fantastic.
The facilities in the building were good with room for seven/eight to eat comfortably around the dining table. There are two bedrooms and bathroom in the main building and a bedroom and small bathroom in the annex. There is an additional double bed downstairs in the annex and a single on the landing in the main building. The spiral staircase in the main building is quite small so we used the external staircase from the barn to a door at the end of the landing to move luggage.
Overall the owners ensured we had a great holiday and we really enjoyed the location, pool, relaxation and hospitality.
