The villa is beautiful with all the mod cons. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of bedrooms to choose from. The pool was just the right temperature with plenty of land surrounding it all and a tennis court! This was all set in the beautiful French countryside. You literally hear nothing! The local village is a 5 min drive away where you can get supplies and of course your morning baguettes but for a larger shop Marmande has a large Carrefour that caters for everything and is only 15 min drive away. Highly recommended and look forward to coming back again.
