                                                              A perfect retreat

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              This property is ideal if you want to relax, chill out and forget about the normal routine back home. It is quiet, even with cowbells that you soon get used to. The property itself is clean, well equipped and, bliss....no tv or internet, thus aiding you to switch off, and also to help teenagers see how much fun can be had playing games and even chatting as a family! The rooms are airy, neat, and the bathroom has a great shower. The kitchen has everything you need, and if the weather that we had is common, barbecues are the order of the day. The neighbours are friendly and helpful (we even got a present of fresh eggs) and Mauriac is very handy for shopping and other facilities. There is something for everyone in the area, be it active (walking, riding, canoeing etc) or lazy (sunbathing at the lakeside). Would I bring my family here again? You bet!
