We were after a large property for 16 (8 adults and 8 children). This property was absolutely ideal with room to spare. Located in a lovely part of France well away from everything in a small hamlet yet not too far from shops and amenities. The house is well equipped and ideal for young children with their own play room equipped with masses of toys and games. Huge well equipped kitchen with large fridge and freezer. We were lucky with the weather and able to make full use of the massive patio for evening meals every night; though had we needed to be inside there was a large lounge to relax in.
The owner was most helpful and responded quickly in answering any queries and questions throughout.
We had a wonderful holiday in lovely surroundings. There were 6 of us including 2 young children. The gite/cottage is lovely with 3 large bedrooms upstairs, living/dining room, kitchen and shower room downstairs. We had full use of the whole garden and swimming pool - shared with the owners - Annie and Alex are lovely, warm people who were very welcoming.
The grandchildren loved the pool which can be open air or used in the rain with the cover over it. The pool area can be locked so is very safe and there are lots of inflatable toys for the pool. There are swings in the garden and toys and plenty of space for kids to play in. Everything was provide from towels, tea towels to washing up liquid and toilet rolls Free wifi is provided, there is a TV and board games in the cupboard. When we arrived there were 2 bottles of local wine in the fridge for us. Annie and Alex only speak a little English and we don't speak much French but we got by with Google Translate and sign language. Chaulgnes is a small village but there is a boulangerie and small supermarket. A big thank you to Annie and Alex
