This is a fantastic holiday property comprising two houses side by side and comfortably accommodating 18 in total. The houses are comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The bedrooms are all very smart. Not all rooms have air con in the Manor House but even in August we had no problems as the buildings are solid and cool inside. There was constant hot water so no issues at shower time! The pool area is large with plenty of chairs and sun loungers as well as a good play area for children big and small. Thomas ( and his parents who also gifted fruit to us) are really nice people, and were very helpful. In fact, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Trebes was a straightforward 25 min walk. I would only mention that the stairs in the Pigeonnier were a little steep for my 80+ mother but there were no problems in the manor house. We have rented holiday homes for 20 years plus, and this is comfortably one of the best. Thank you, Thomas, for your particular kindness when we had some issues with airport transport. I recommend this property without hesitation.
