We had a fantastic visit because everything we required had been provided for, Ben and Fiona even conjured up the sunny weather.
What nice people they are it was a pleasure to meet them, they had provided information about the surrounding area which made deciding what to do easy. All in all I feel we were very lucky to have found this gem
We rented the chalet for two weeks in August, in the middle of the heat wave. It was nice and shaded, the kids played in the water all day long pretty much the whole second week. Having access to the kayaks was a great bonus. We ate on the terrace most of the times and had picnics and a barbecue on the river side. We had a very nice basket of essentials and wine on arrival which was a very kind touch.
Overall, we spent a lovely holiday.
Downsides were : someone/previous visitors had left dog poo around the place so the gravel area was not a place we could let the children play in. The outdoor description on the ad doesn’t match the reality. The barbecue at the back was not in a usable state. The beach is absolutely not private and not accessed directly from the house. The pictures must have been taken about 10 years ago as everything is now overgrown and the beach closest to the house is barely accessible.
The path leading to the house is more akin to a minefield than a path so drive slowly. The closest boulangerie is 6 miles away, so be prepared in case you thought you could take a gentle stroll every morning.
We enjoyed the isolation on our second week when we knew we just wanted to chill by the water. If you want to use the chalet as a base for visits, and do back and forth trips, this may not be the best option.
