Holiday heaven - home from home

5 of 5
Lovely villa- Pauline (the owner) has thought of everything! I loved the homely feel in the kitchen and living room. The pool was a joy in the warm weather. The villa is clean and well kept. Pauline is always on hand if you needed her (we didn't have any need). The location is a shorr drive to supermarkets (Super U etc) and the beaches and the main town, St Jean de Mont; a pretty village with a huge beach front. The location was lovely and quiet and peaceful and the woodland walk (a 5/10 min walk from the back gate) was lovely to hunt for giant pine cones!! If you had bikes with you there is a direct route here to cycle to the beach through the forest (probably 20 mins or so). The site of the villas is well kept and maintained. A great holiday! Thank you.

Static at Du Lac

4 of 5
This was our first fortnight holiday in a Static Caravan. The Property was clean and in good condition and nicely situated. We incurred a few minor maintenance issues. The Property was a tad too small for us, ideally would suit 3-4 people. The Camp site is lovely and has good facilities, overall we had a lovely time, we think it is worth 4 Stars.
