Our family have just returned from a very relaxing week at Philippe’s fabulous cottage, Field Mitonierre, Herisson in the centre of France.
It is such a peaceful retreat and being situated in the countryside allows plenty of privacy, with ample space and grounds to enjoy lots of outdoor activities. Close to the main cottage, there is an outbuilding which has a hot tub, sauna, toilet and shower room and there is also a music system, fire burner and some gym equipment.
The standard of the three bedroom cottage is fantastic and the way the property has been finished provides a modern contemporary feel throughout. Three spacious bedrooms with King size beds, two bathrooms, a really cosy living room with log fire and a large modern kitchen with everything you need for your stay.
The large garden was brilliant for our kids who enjoyed the lovely outdoor pool and the spacious lawns to play football, badminton, frisbee and racket games.
If you are looking for some quality uninterrupted family time, this property is ideal. The small town of Vallon en Sully is only a 6-7 minute drive away and there are a couple of restaurants, a well stocked supermarket and somewhere to hire bikes.
There is also a theme park about 90 mins away called Park Le Pal. It has a mixture of animals you would normally find in a zoo and also some fantastic rides to be enjoyed by all the family. The entry fee was good value at €29 per person and all the food retail outlets within the park offer a reasonable set menu for approx €12-15 per person.
Philippe, the property owner is a fantastic host and nothing is too much trouble for him. He is on hand if you need him for anything but unless you need him, he leaves you to enjoy his fantastic property in peace.
We had some fantastic BBQs in the garden and would often have breakfast on the poolside terrace, or enjoy early evening drinks there before snuggling up on the sofa in the main cottage sitting in front of the beautiful log fire.
This was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had and this property come highly recommend.
Philippe, thank you very much.
The Turner Family
We have spent 2 weeks in this wonderful charming house and we loved everything about it! The house itself is beautifully decorated with a lot of thought and character. It is generously equipped and is simply pleasant to spend time in.
The garden enclose is spacious and has few sitting areas scattered around and plenty of furniture. We enjoyed dining outside as the weather was just perfect most of the time. The surrounding is rural and very peaceful. Cows were looking at us from the field across the road. In the nearby town of Monmarault there is everything one needs in terms of food shopping and internet.
There is plenty to do around. Around 30 mins from there there is an adventure park where you can do kayaking, high ropes forest cycling and more. The pictorial village of Herrison is not to be missed and if you are interested in history, there are plenty of chateaux and fortresses around to explore.
Finally, the owners are lovely, helpful and welcoming.
We will surly come back!!!
