The house is very clean, homely and very well equipped and EVERYTHING WORKED including lovely, modern bathrooms with excellent showers. It has a good sized garden for games and a lovely, heated pool. This is without doubt the easiest and quickest villa we have ever rented (in 20 years) and the communications with Mike were simple, straightforward and FAST. It made booking a pleasure and instructions ,directions etc. were precise and accurate. If we needed anything we contacted Tony and Tina ( The managers) and they were really helpful. The nearby village of Lizant is really scenic with friendly people and a chocolate box mill and a clear, gently flowing river. It also has a great Boulangerie but unfortunately the Fish and Chip shop has now closed! There are plenty of places to visit within a fairly easy driving distance such as La Rochelle Aquarium and Crocodile Planet as well as small picturesque villages. In short we would DEFINITELY RECCOMMEND La Grange to couples or families for a lovely stress free holiday with a MINIMUM of BOOKING HASSLE. ----Alan & Val.

Glen was very pleasant, nothing was too much trouble for him.
