The children had a brilliant time in the pool (perfect for little ones with the big steps into the pool) and they loved feeding the donkeys. There are plenty of bikes for the children which our 8 year old loved as lots of flat space for her to ride around on. Sarah and Patrick are fantastic hosts and always on hand for any queries and Patrick was kind enough to send us a couple of deliveries of fresh vegetables from his garden! The restaurant in nearby Pugnac is well worth a visit. Merlot is really spacious and kitchen well stocked with cutlery, crockery etc. We enjoyed some delicious local wine from the nearby Chateau and cant wait to return next year!

She took the time to show us the accommodation and gave us some history behind it. The Longere is very spacious and comfortable and the surrounding areas are beautiful. Our stay was in the Autumn and the colours were magnificent. We made use of the fireplace in the evenings and sipped wine from the vineyard next door! We had to pay extra for the electricity for 7 days but were aware of this before we booked. However, there is a fee per bed for linens which is not clear. Mr Raffin waived it after I mentioned that it was not stated on the English version of the website. This is really the websites fault and not his. I would return to this accommodation without any hesitation.
