A downstairs bathroom with big bath was a god send with 2 babies, 2 children and an additional teenager!!!! Rob and his Dad were fabulous. Very friendly and full of very useful information about the area. Ask Rob's Dad about places to visit, he is better than the tourist information!! The house is really close to local shops for supplies and the larger town of Montlucon is a short drive away. There are some beautiful little villages close by to have a walk round too if that is your thing! We will definitely be returning for another holiday. Thanks you for a great holiday. Very Happy Parents with 5 happy children!! Kay, Graham & the tribe!
