The cottage is full of character but at the same time has all modern facilities. We really enjoyed our stay, the barbecue area is wonderful and very useful in all weathers. Chantal is a perfect host.

A Great Place to Relax and Unwind

5 of 5
Our family, 2 adults and 3 kids spent a wonderful week at Puy de Serre. We arrived tired and weary after a weeks family adventure holiday outside Paris and the cottage was the perfect place to relax and recharge. It has a fantastic outdoor space where the kids played all the games they wanted and was a great place to dine in the evening sun. The cottage is quiet and secluded and was a great place for stargazing. It had everything we needed, apart from a working dvd remote control, and I would recommend it if you want a quiet and peaceful retreat. The beach at La Terriere was approx 1hr 15mins away and there was lots more to do close by. By the end of our holiday kids weren't too bothered about not having wi-fi, but they are still a little freaked out by the painting of the cat in the bedroom, staring at them from every point in the room, we threaten to get a copy of it if they don't behave and that keeps them in order these days.
