Stunning, the views are incredible.

5 of 5
We had an amazing holiday, relaxing, peaceful, on the doorstep to a picture postcard village. The kids (teenagers) enjoyed the pool, the games room offered a welcome relief from the heat, with plenty of space for peace and quiet. The facilities were great and offered everything we needed and more. Would certainly recommend this to any family. You do need a car to get around.

Wonderful property & great hosts!

5 of 5
We loved our time in Viam and will likely to be back soon! The property was lovely and nicer than we had originally expected - it easily accommodated all of our family (2 adults and 2 kids) all of the facilities were top class and I would not hesitate top recommend to anyone else. It does help that we are a bit of an 'outdoorsy' family - so loved the closeness of the lake and all of the wonderful wildlife that was on our doorstep - only thing I would say is that you definitely need a car to be able to access the closest shop in Bugeat a huit-a-huit (or in reality a 8:30am until 7pm!) the market there on a Thursday is a must! Loads of great things to go and do.... Abi and Chris were excellent and helped with everything they possibly could!
