Property matched up to the pictures, great host and lovely apartment

5 of 5
We was very happy with our stay, we was looked after from start to finish, lovely apartment in a nice quiet location but not to far from the town centre, we was able to walk every day, swimming pool looked great unfortunately the weather wasn't during our stay, brilliant host and very well looked after throughout the whole stay, would defiantly stay again and would highly recommend.

France Trip

5 of 5
Myself and my wife booked an off season special offer for two people. We were worried about the low price but need not have been. On arrival the chateau was as described and the two of us had as promised exclusive use. The day time weather at the end of September was warm and sunny although the evenings were rather chilly. Gerald provided us with logs and the memories of the evenings around the log fire remain a happy memory.
