Le Chat provided this by giving us our own private space with the three bathrooms and well spaced out bedrooms. The master suite being exceptionally luxurious and spacious. The downstairs had ample space and our grand daughter of eighteen months had plenty of room to play and toddle about. The kitchen provided everything that we needed and we cooked some lovely meals that were eaten ale fresco and around the generous sized kitchen table. We felt completely private within the garden and surrounds of the house and enjoyed the pool to cool off on hot days. We had a fabulous week and would recommend the property to family and friends.

Great to have the table tennis/ football as well as the excellent pool and tennis court. Would love to go again. Nice walks, 12th century chapel nearby, lovely wild flowers, pretty garden. A treat!
