The property was tidy and cosy with a beautiful decking area for surveying the rolling countryside. The chicken and pigs at the bottom of the garden were a highlight. Would recommend a car for excursions, although bikes are provided for local trips. Recommended.

I am in the hospitality industry and feel that most people need the accommodation clean and a good night's sleep, maison maurice ticked these boxes. We also had the use of a hot tub and an above ground swimming pool which was lovely. Richard is warm, welcoming and hospitable, the home made veg and fresh eggs and bread were wonderful.Richard recommended a visit to Oradur sur glane, it took approx 2 hrs to get there but roads are good and it is well worth it. Everthing you could ask for and a bit more, i think you wil be seeing us again Richard .

Well appointed and equipped with all the usual appliances and kitchen utensils required for cooking. Wifi was excellent once we found the correct code to use! The lovely pool was large enough to share if you needed too, and a great place to soak up the sun. Easy access to the main roads and very close to the N10 motorway making visiting the major towns a breeze. We did not have time to use the many bikes of varying sizes, but would be an ideal location to cycle around. And the resident cat was very welcoming too. Highly recommended!
