Atmospheric open plan inside - nice kitchen area opening out to rest of house. Interesting trees, lovely sunsets, pleasant local walks, pleasant, though quite shallow, pool, great showers. Only negatives were the slight ageing of some facilities - e.g.: one or two lights, sockets, dishwasher and pool alarm not working perfectly. But that can be an advantage if you are worried about breaking brand new facilities!

We came here on a family holiday with children aged between 4 and 11 and it was perfect. The barn-converted house is beautiful, so spacious, well equipped and finished to a very high standard and the grounds are stunning. The pool and the grass area allowed lots of outdoor play and the outdoor seating and eating areas were great. It's only a short drive to Duras and other nearby areas for local restaurants, cafes and markets as well as a decent sized supermarket. The weather was gorgeous and Helen and Neil were very helpful...we'd recommend it and would definitely come back here again.
