Our family have just returned from a very relaxing week at Philippe’s fabulous cottage, Field Mitonierre, Herisson in the centre of France.
It is such a peaceful retreat and being situated in the countryside allows plenty of privacy, with ample space and grounds to enjoy lots of outdoor activities. Close to the main cottage, there is an outbuilding which has a hot tub, sauna, toilet and shower room and there is also a music system, fire burner and some gym equipment.
The standard of the three bedroom cottage is fantastic and the way the property has been finished provides a modern contemporary feel throughout. Three spacious bedrooms with King size beds, two bathrooms, a really cosy living room with log fire and a large modern kitchen with everything you need for your stay.
The large garden was brilliant for our kids who enjoyed the lovely outdoor pool and the spacious lawns to play football, badminton, frisbee and racket games.
If you are looking for some quality uninterrupted family time, this property is ideal. The small town of Vallon en Sully is only a 6-7 minute drive away and there are a couple of restaurants, a well stocked supermarket and somewhere to hire bikes.
There is also a theme park about 90 mins away called Park Le Pal. It has a mixture of animals you would normally find in a zoo and also some fantastic rides to be enjoyed by all the family. The entry fee was good value at €29 per person and all the food retail outlets within the park offer a reasonable set menu for approx €12-15 per person.
Philippe, the property owner is a fantastic host and nothing is too much trouble for him. He is on hand if you need him for anything but unless you need him, he leaves you to enjoy his fantastic property in peace.
We had some fantastic BBQs in the garden and would often have breakfast on the poolside terrace, or enjoy early evening drinks there before snuggling up on the sofa in the main cottage sitting in front of the beautiful log fire.
This was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had and this property come highly recommend.
Philippe, thank you very much.

Beautifully refurbished and well maintained house in the French Countryside. We enjoyed a weeks stay here with five adults and four children and all had plenty of room to spread out. The pool was well maintained and enjoyed by all- it was definitely a refreshing temperature! The Terrace was a great place to sit and have dinner in the evenings with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It is a short drive to nearby towns and tourist attractions - the children particularly enjoyed the swimming lake at Lapeyrouse. The house is not suitable for young toddling children - due to the open plan nature of the house. The owner did advise of us this at the time of booking but we chose to go ahead and found ourselves constantly following our one year old everywhere so best avoided if you want to sit down on your holiday!
