From the moment we arrived we felt as though we had slipped from our hectic lives in the UK into bliss! Our hosts were incredible and couldn't have been more helpful offering local knowledge, wine and wood for our fire! Their dog, Azure, wandered in and out making us feel more as though we were part of a family rather than tourists. The accommodation is stunning; warm and rustic, offering all the comforts of home yet maintaining all the charm that rural France promises. We wandered down to the river each morning and fed the horses at lunchtime then walked down the lane in the afternoon, I can't tell you how much of an antidote this place is to the the stresses and strains of life in the UK! There is a Carrefore within 10 minutes drive, the beaches are close by and the countryside is right on your doorstep. What more could a holiday offer? We have already booked to go back.

Cottage being so remote ,is very dusty and perhaps the mattress could be changed However the overall experience was fab and we will return
