Beautiful Cottage

5 of 5
Beautiful secluded cottage situated on a private drive in the picturesque village of Chaud. Everything you need is at hand with plenty of cutlery, glasses pots and pans etc. The bedrooms are large and airy with curtains and french shutters which we closed each evening. Plenty of private off road parking and safe for children. Large gas barbeque with plenty of outside seating to enjoy the evenings. Excellent large heated swimming pool with loungers and rattan furniture. Daniel and his family are very welcoming and live in a nearby cottage if you need them for anything. Overall I would recommend the cottage and look forward to staying again in the future.

Beautiful peaceful setting and lovely hosts

4 of 5
A really lovely place tucked away so we were able to enjoy a quiet holiday. We have 2 young children who loved the swimming pool which is always open and lovely and warm! The hosts couldn't have been better, really friendly and easy to get hold of. The cottage itself was authentic and had everything we needed. Great base for exploring the other towns & villages nearby.
