The accommodation was as-described, scrupulously clean and well-presented and the owners made us feel wonderfully welcome. It was lovely to experience rural France and, yes, that comes with the occasional dormouse which we heard in the roof but never saw. That didn't stop us enjoying the best nights of sleep that we had had in a long time! The pool and grounds are very well-maintained and safe. The accommodation appears to be recently converted and to a high standard. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, country location with authentic, clean, extremely comfortable and spacious accommodation.

We were two families with teenagers and toddlers, good shops and restaraunts in the village and less than an hour away from the beach. Will definitely consider returning again sometime.

The owner was most welcoming and and the house was clean and tidy. The amenities were good, but there was no kettle - quite useful for tea drinkers! The children would have appreciated internet facilities but the adults were pleased there were none. Some brochures or information on events or for example where to hire bikes would have been useful to have had in the house. Thank you for a lovely time and for the potatoes!
