Fantastic property set in splendid grounds - with a Pool!

5 of 5
We were a group of three families looking for a quiet place - but with enough to keep five children occupied for a week. The property is nert Vire in normandie and is quite a way away from other people. it is three self contained units, a 1 bed, a 2 bed and a 3 bed. All the properties have cooking / kettle / micro and the grounds of the estate contain a pool. The weather was a little mixed when we visited, but was mostly warm enough for the kids to use the pool every day. The pool house is surrounded by lush grass, a small football pitch, a trampoline and a boules court - loads to do. We had barbeques most evenings sitting out the back or out the front of the property - you aren't distrubed by anybdy and the kids probably didn't disturb anyone else. Had the weather been bad the pads all had TV / DVD / Play stations - and hundreds of DVDs. Also loads of outdoor games as indoor ones. Overall - we had a great week, celebrated two birthdays and a wedding anniversary - what more could you want or need?
