                                            Meydieu is an excellent property with every item in the property that you could possibly require and more. It is in a lovely private setting. Our only problem was that the pool was unusable due to a fault but the owner ensured that he contacted us to apologise and also ensured he sent local friends in the area to explain and assist.

                                            Another stay, another great time...Charmaine once again pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a stunning time. The usual welcome, spotlessly clean, bread on the counter, cheese and wine in the fridge! All very much needed after a days drive. The new addition of the kids play room in the garden was enjoyed by the kids throughout along with the pool, they also enjoyed harvesting the low-level grapes on the various vines. Lots to do in the surrounding area, the kids love solving the challenges at Pirate Land as much as they do riding the amusements at Walabi to zip lining through the trees at Parc en Ceil. And after doing all that, the chance to relax on the terrace looking up at the wonderful Bastide of Castillonnes - meat on the Weber, wine in the glass, kids happy in their room due to the speedy wifi I love the place will be back again soon
