The house is very well equipped and there was plenty of space for all of us. There are tables, chairs and parasols at intervals around the outside of the house so that we were able eat in the shade and admire the garden at any meal. The garden was sufficiently big to allow us to put up a badminton net and still have room for the boys to run around when they were not in the pool, where they spent hours every day. It was our first encounter with a Basque plancha, which is so much better than a barbecue. The location of the house is peaceful and rural with distant views and the local roads are quiet, a joy to drive on after the crowded roads in south-east England. The week was over far too quickly.
This accommodation is owned and managed by a couple who understand the needs of their guests and they go out of their way to try to accommodate your needs. Having said that we had as little or as much contact with them as we needed. In our case we were seeking a quiet week away from 'tourist land' where we would be comfortable and undisturbed. This we achieved.
The accommodation we stayed in while next to the house and joined to it by an arch (great for keeping the car cool and out of the sun) had it's own sheltered back garden and large covered eating area which is very private and not over looked or disrupted by noise from the main house.
We had a great week away from tourists and tasted 27 different Chablis (all premier cru). Went out to lunch a lot. You must have more than one lunch in Chablis to really feel you are beginning to understand the area and it's people.
If you are looking for what we were looking for you will have a great time. The only downside maybe the lack of air conditioning but if France had more air conditioning it would be overrun by more wimpy tourists.
