We spent a lovely week in August in Grooms Cottage. Anita and Richard are fantastic hosts - they allowed us to look around their beautiful chateau, and we had some lovely walks in the grounds and orchards.
The pool is a great size and the cover helped on some slightly cooler days, worth noting that the pool is shared with chateau guests and the other rental property. Richard has a number of inflatables he regularly blows up for guests which is a lovely touch!
The cottage itself is very spacious especially the bedrooms and the original character really stands out. The furnishings etc are fairly basic, but the kitchen was well equipped. We had a lovely, relaxing week exploring the local area and would recommend to others who want their own piece of rural France for a week. Thanks again to Anita and Richard for sharing their home.
My family and I found this gem after being let down at the 11th hour by a different holiday home website.
After making the booking I was contacted by the owner who was exceptionally friendly. We spoke at length about the house, the area and all the things we could do should we have any energy left after spending 4 days in Disney before this leg of our holiday.
When it came to finding the property Google Maps did an excellent job of getting us literally to the door (really handy as we got there quite late) - Thanks Neil for the welcome package!!
The house itself was warm and comfortable with everything we needed to keep 3 children of varying ages amused. The property is a 5 minute drive from the village of Bais which has 2 bakeries, a butchers and a small Carrefour - everything you need to get going, before venturing out to outlying bigger towns.
I would definitely recommend a stay here
