Rooms are all beautifully decorated and a really great size, all the beds all very comfortable. Most of all everything is provided & the whole house was spotlessly clean. The facilities throughout are fantastic, ever detail has been thought of, in fact there was nothing else we could have wished for. Another special mention must be made of the pool, it is “Absolutely fantastic”, the host Bryan admits he has OCD with the pool, and he looks after it meticulously and whole terrace is spotlessly clean. We had several days just lazing around admiring the stunting views from the terrace whilst the little kids had hours and hours of fun in the pool. The location is on the edge of a small village, so is super peaceful and quiet. At night the sky is amazing and you can see so many stars even the milky way. Although secluded it's close enough to plenty of attractions if you fancy a trip out. The lake at Vassiviere is definitely worth a visit as well the village of Crozant. The hosts Jane and Bryan, and their two boys were just perfect, we thoroughly enjoyed their company, sharing many a drink with them. I must mention that they only joined us when we asked and otherwise left us alone. Nothing is too much trouble for them and clearly there only aim is to make sure we had a fantastic time, which we did. This was holiday to remember for all the right reasons and a new family that I'm sure we'll remain friends with for a long time. Thank you
