The perfect house for a family getaway.

5 of 5
I booked this house for a family holiday holiday to celebrate my Mothers 60th birthday. There were 5 adults, and 2 children. It really was just perfect. The owners have obviously put a huge amount of effort and time into renovating the property. It has such a homely feel and we all said how easy it was to relax. The rooms are spacious and we had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to fun garden games. The little touches like children's toys and DVDs to suit all the family were just brilliant. The pool and massive garden were a bonus! We enjoyed lots of time playing games outside and even a BBQ one evening. The location is idyllic and quiet and the region is just beautiful. We found some great walks to go on from the house. We enjoyed visiting the markets in Civray and Ruffec and consumed far too much cheese and wine during our stay! Ben, the owner was quick to answer any questions leading up to the holiday and was easily contactable. We wouldn't hesitate to return again and would highly recommend. An absolutely wonderful holiday with lots of laughs and great memories. Thank you

A great location and a house with every amenity covered. Great help from Ken & Heidi the caretakers.

Booked for a family get away to celebrate a birthday. Really enjoyed the ‘country’ feel and facilities on site. Great to help ourselves to fresh eggs and produce from the garden and orchard. Not too far to surrounding towns and attractions of Futuroscope and chateaux. Found a reasonable eatery in Lencloître to sample good regional cooking. Although end of May managed to make use of the pool - a little chilly but great when the sun was out. Thoroughly recommend for a family get together or for families with young children.
