As soon as we drove into the drive and turned the engine off the quietness and stillness hit us, the only noise was a Turtle Dove calling - bliss. Its exactly what it says in the description. The Cottage is perfect, It had nearly everything we needed for the two of us, the only thing missing was a couple of large cups for our morning coffee, but we bought a couple and left them behind - so now it has everything. As a bird watcher I was delighted to find Golden Orioles, Black Redstarts and Nightjars in the area and the swallows seemed to delight in buzzing us when we were in the pool. The surrounding area is typical of middle of nowhere France (in the nicest possible way) small hamlets, slightly larger villages and the occasional town with a supermarket and if you are lucky a restaurant - the nearest one we found was a 20 minute drive. There are enough places to visit in the area to make full days out for a week or so, but equally chilling in the pool and garden was too nice some of the time to bother about site seeing. The owners were away when we stayed which gave us the run of the property and garden, but for the very minor problem that we did have, they had left us a contact number for a local English couple who were around within 10 minutes of our call. In conclusion - perfect, Highly recommend this place to anybody looking to get away from it all for a week or two.

The house is stunning, in an idyllic rural location away from all the hustle and bustle of city life. It's very easy to travel around the local area - walking or making use of the bikes on hand and to venture a little further for day trips. Ten of us stayed comfortably in the house, especially enjoying being able eat outside and make use of the lovely courtyard area. We loved the swimming pool and seating area around it. The housekeepers made us feel welcome without encroaching and were on hand if we had any questions. All in all we had a fabulous time and are already thinking about a return visit! Thank you so much to Tom and Lily for such a spectacular holiday.
