Plenty of bedroom space with comfy beds. Sociable open plan living area. Well equipped kitchen etc. The garden was a hit with the children having swings, climbing frame & trampoline. Two large garden areas & outside seating & eating in the sun. But the biggest draw was the fantastic indoor pool. Beautiful unspoilt beaches a short walk away. White sand with silver sparkles. An area away from the usual tourist trail so peaceful. A short drive to small towns with hypermarket. Highly recommend. Thank you Valerie.

Our two week stay here was utterly magical given just how breathtaking the view from this property is. Walk to the beach in the morning and watch the sun go down with a G&T in the evening in the garden. Bliss.The house is cool, comfortable and clean. The housekeeper Jacquotte is lovely and we were lucky enough to meet the delightful owners who came to cut the grass. A wonderful holiday in a beautiful and more remote part of France. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful home.
