Gardens large and perfectly secure. Great for kids. Location great for visiting royan, st palmyre etc 10 mins drive to large supermarkets and beach but we didn't walk out from the house at all. You definitely need a car here.

There was more than enough space for a family of 10, with everything you could possibly need and more. The games room upstairs was great fun and kept us all occupied, especially on those rainy days. The pool was big and very clean and we used it every day without fail. The villa is well equipped with things for the children to do - we played with lego, boardgames and mostly all the outdoor equipment - the huge trampoline, swings and the treehouse were a big bonus for the kids! The area itself had lots to offer, we had a fabulous day at the Zoo, Youpiland, mini golf and plenty of lovely beaches to visit. Mr Archer was very welcoming and showed us how to use everything around the villa. He was even kind enough to post back something we had left behind. Thank you very much for a great holiday home! We would love to come back again!
