The place is huge and decorated to a very high standard with all mod cons and everything you could possibly need. Four large ensuite bedrooms ( our master had a bathroom shower dressing room and office!), a large lounge and dining kitchen, plus acres of space outside, and a lovely covered heated pool. It is immaculately clean, and Beatrice was an excellent host. We hope to use again! Darren and Jayne Child

This was not a problem however as I sent a text to the owner, Maurice, to inform him we were held up and he very kindly did a shop for us and stocked up with milk, bread, ham, croissants, tomatoes, fruit, eggs, beer and wine so our holiday could truly begin on arrival. The property has everything you need and more for a home-from-home getaway. It is very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the outside areas don't disappoint either. The pool is lovely and the added bonus of the summer kitchen, complete with kettle, fridge, BBQ, cutlery and crockery means you can kick back and stay there all day without having to go into the house - fabulous! Maurice, the owner, is an absolute star - nothing is too much trouble. He is respectful of your privacy and extremely helpful if you need anything. We asked about rail travel to Bordeaux and he went to the local railway station for us and found out all the details - prices, times etc. We were invited to his home one evening where he cooked a fabulous meal of roast lamb and we laughed and chatted with him until late into the night. A wonderful host who genuinely loves what he does and cares that his guests have the best time on their holidays. We could not fault this property, the owner or the location and if you are looking for a complete chill-out then this is the holiday for you.
