The four of us (myself, husband and our children aged 14 and 16) really appreciated the well laid out and well equipped accommodation and found plenty to do during our stay. The table tennis in one of the barns was a big hit, perfect for evenings, and the large open-air barn was great for relaxing in the shade and having a barbecue. We had a few dips in the pool too! There was also a terrace area next to the sitting room which was a sun trap and had lovely views of the local countryside, as well as table and chairs outside the kitchen and sun loungers on the grass. The bicycles were an added bonus and we enjoyed several bike rides through the peaceful local area. The Mervant forest was approx 20 minutes away and we hired pedalos and walked round the lake there, also visiting the small medieval village of Vouvant. We also visited Mervant Zoo which was a very pleasant day - up close with giraffes, tigers, monkeys and wallabies - much closer than many zoos we've visited in the U.K., and nowhere near as crowded. Puy du Fou is approx half an hour away and we had been recommended by friends to pay a visit there, and were so glad we did. It's an amazing place with spectacular shows based on various periods of history, such as the Roman amphitheatre, complete with chariot racing and lions and tigers. Yes it's busy but doesn't feel it when walking around. But most of all, we enjoyed the peaceful cottage, it's in the middle of the countryside so no traffic noise at all, and very easy to relax. Margarita was around and happy to help if asked but respected our privacy too. She has created a lovely set up and we would recommend it to anyone.

Denise and Ian were fabulous hosts who were around when needed but didnt matter that they live there as well as didn't intrude on the holiday. The location is perfect for doing lots nearby and Denise is a fountain of knowledge of places to eat, visit, so, timings the lots! The accommodation was perfect for a family. Great bedroom space and a lovely lounge with TV. Kitchen was spacious and had everything - except a tray to carry things outside to eat! The bathroom had a lovely bath tub and shower over which did tend to cause a bit of water splashage so a shower curtain may be useful in here (also some ventilation as having boys!!!) the swimming pool was amazing and warm once in! The kids loved splashing about on inflatables for hours! The additional bonus of being able to fish for pleasure whenever you fancied was a real joy for my husband and older two children. They spent every evening fishing until dark which gave me valuable peace and quiet! A win win for everyone! The nearest hypermarket had everything you could wish for and so much more and was within an easy drive. In the near locality there were many great eateries as well as lakes, a zoo, the maddest theme park you will ever go to, green Venice, beaches (we didn't go to the coast as so much to do locally) and in under an hour Puy Du Foy. We had the best 12 days stay in the most brilliant location with everything we needed. I am struggling to find something comparable for next summer! The drive to the ferry port (Caen) was 4 hours on toll roads and was very easy. I have only scored the place 4 stars (wanted to do 4.5) in recognition that you are not alone as Denise and Ian do live on site. However as I mentioned they do not intrude in any way on your holiday and since coming home I have recommended their place to just about everyone I know! I would go back to their rental and had an amazing time there but to be perfect (5 stars) it would have been secluded and only our family there.... that's just me being super picky as it truly was fabulous and everything I (the family) needed and wanted from our holiday. Such great value for money and a lovely place to visit.
