It is always a challenge to find a house to suit 10 family members across 3 generations but this was perfect. Lots of space, places to relax and areas for play. Inside, the house feels like a real home (which it is during the winter), the garden was big enough for the children to play various sports and everyone loved to relax by the pool. It is always a treat to eat outside and there was lots of different spots to do this - we were particular fans of the local farm shop which we used to stock up for our daily barbecues. Robert and Philip were great and it was really helpful to have them nearby to ask for local advice. The house is located in a attractive and quiet area of the Charente, but there are enough local restaurants and places to visit if you can drag yourselves away from the pool. We especially enjoyed a morning kayaking at Jarnac. We are all looking forward to returning for another family holiday.

It was just right for us, 2 couples and our dogs - who particularly enjoying playing in the spacious garden, whilst we enjoyed the pool. The mixture of authentic renovation and modern bathroom facilities were really welcome and you have obviously given a lot of thought to making sure your guests have everything they need with books, games, DVDs available as well as plenty of local info and recommendations. The pre-visit info pack received was probably the most comprehensive we've ever had in many years of renting holiday properties, and many thanks for your swift responses to our questions while we were staying. Thanks again, would recommend it to others.
