An excellent holiday house :0)

5 of 5
Everything was as described and the house, gardens etc were spotless; the customer service offered and delivered by the owners was nothing short of excellent and we, as a family, cannot recommend this house & the owners highly enough! The house is situated a 10min drive away from the main town - which has everything needed (Supermarket etc). With the house being located in what feels like the middle of a vast farm it has total piece and quiet and we found it a great place to chill out - well when the kids weren't going mad in the pool! La Rochelle is 30-45mins away by car and there are plenty of other towns within the same distance. We loved our stay and will be back again next year - and more than likely for many years to come :0)
