The pool and the on-site AstroTurf putting area made the location ideal for our 10 year old. The site was quiet and the property private. The property is a home me from home with Sky sports and a small but well- equipped kitchen. The only downside was a lack of a fan as temperatures high in August. The surrounding area is quiet although if prepared to try the local restaurants then great value - although they tend to be a set menu. Try Auberge des Voyageurs in Meningute which was particularly good and owner speaks English. Poitiers is the largest city in the area, about 45 mins away - well worth a visit. Do watch out for the crazy local drivers on the small roads. We would certainly recommend this property.
