There was 10 of us in total 4 children and 6 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone in the house particularly with 4 large very clean bathrooms. The outside space is superb with covered areas for getting out of the sun (38' on one day!!!) and loungers around the pool for those days when lazing is all you want to do. We had day trips to the coast and to the aquarium in La Rochelle and 10 mins away there is a great karting place for 7 to 70 year olds. There is a zoo just round the corner again only 10 mins away. Everyone had a great time and we were sorry to leave! ( we nearly didn't ,thanks Hugh for the jump leads!).

The pool was lovely as was the hot tub. Our children enjoyed feeding the donkeys carrots each evening. The weather was good too. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back here. Rose family (2 adults and four children aged 10-15)

We were a party of 7 and didn't for one minute fee we were on top of each other. All 4 bedrooms were a lovely size and have ample space to store clothes. The showers in both the family bathroom and ensuite were both really powerful with plenty of hot water. The kitchen had great facilities with a really good oven and hob. It also had plenty of utensils to cover every need. It was also a lovely space to eat dinner in in the evenings. The pool and BBQ area was fantastic and the kids thoroughly enjoyed splashing around in there every day. It was great to be able to lock it off when it wasn't in use so our 3 young children could run freely round the large, wrap around, garden without us having to worry about their safety. Also the fact that it had electric gates at the front so we weren't worried about them being able to get out onto the road either was a huge plus. Nancy was a lovey host who settled us in with the necessary info and some very thoughtful welcome gifts of bread, jam and wine etc She was always available, via email, with recommendations for things to do in the local area. The villa has a really lovely homely feel to it and made for a fantastic holiday for us. I would thoroughly recommend it.
