Lovely quiet modern house with great facilities.

4 of 5
My wife and 2 teenage boys had a great time at Maison Rouge. The house is very spacious and modern. The kitchen is fully equipped and has all you will need. The pool is a great size and suits any age. The town is quiet but has a bar, restaurants, supermarket. There are other larger towns near by but a car would be required. The owners were very helpful and responded quickly to emails. The check in/check out can take a while as the agent goes through the full list of items in every room. Although this is for everyone's benefit but do allow the time when you leave. I would certainly return to Maison Rouge and if there was one thing I could suggest would be the hire of bath towels rather than bringing your own. Thanks for a great holiday at Maison Rouge. A Bien tot.
