It has excellent facilities for children, with stair gates and a fenced off pool with a pool alarm. The kitchen has all you could need, the bedrooms are lovely (especially the master room with an emperor bed and en suite), and the living area is stocked with books, games, dvds, a football table and table tennis. The pool area is great too. The house is fairly isolated but just a short drive to Duras which has shops and a great night market.

Sue and Jeff are really friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. It is a short stroll to the town centre and close to a boulangerie for breakfast croissants. There are a number of restaurants in the square which serve good food including an Italian. We stayed for 10 days and then was plenty of places to visit in the area without travelling too far.
