We have just returned from our 5th year staying in this lovely property. We found it by chance on holiday back in 2013 and arranged to stay the following year. We love it so much we’ve come back every year since!
When I walk back through the door for the first time I feel myself physically relax. It’s very welcoming and feels very homely. Everything you could need is here. The kitchen is well equipped, there are books galore, even a couple of bikes if you haven’t brought your own.
What sets this property apart from a lot of others in the village is the garden. It’s large and secluded and great for BBQs. There is a great BBQ to use in the shed. There is a bench up on the bank up above the house which I love to sit on and read and one of my favourite things of all is sitting on the kitchen patio eating my breakfast in the early morning sun.
The location offers lots to do. There are great walks, (we are still discovering new ones) bike rides, the nearby town has a great outdoor pool which is quite cheap. We are still finding new restaurants in neighbouring villages. The river is very nearby and offers great swimming and kayaking. My husband is an avid bird watcher and nature lover and there is lots to see, both in the garden and the surrounding countryside.
It really is a relaxing stay and one thing I love is the lack of TV. There is one there to watch DVDs but I love the silence not having it on brings and that we are all playing board games and cards instead. There is Wi-fi for those that need a fix!
After all this time it feels a little bit like our house in France and we always look forward to coming and are very sad to leave it.
This location had the best of both worlds for our family. It's a beautiful old farmhouse close to a small village in the heart of rural France. My wife and myself loved the opportunity to relax, enjoy the countryside and visit the local villages and towns. Our boys loved visiting the nearby monkey park and the theme park in Futuroscope which was a short drive away. The farmhouse itself is beautiful, charming and tranquil. Our boys had a great time swimming in the pool and getting up close to all types of animals. They were very excited collecting eggs for breakfast every morning!
The house itself is very well kept with large, spacious bedrooms. The owners, John and Helen, live in the house and are very warm and welcoming. On arrival, they gave us loads of information about the area and were keen to make sure we enjoyed our stay. They were brilliant with our kids, taking them around with them as they fed the animals and let them help out.
We sampled lots of home made jams and chutneys, all of which were made from produce of the farmhouse and were available with breakfast everyday.
We have already decided to go back for a longer stay (we stayed three days) and couldn't recommend this lovely farmhouse enough.
