We fell in love with the area and Alex and Pat could not have done enough to make us feel more welcome. When we mentioned we bought some local cheese, Alex kindly gave us a jar of homemade tomato chutney - yummy. A wonderful sitting room with a fantastic log burner and bedrooms tastefully decorated plus a fully equipped kitchen. We loved the quiet and peaceful location and the generous hospitality of Alex and Pat made it difficult for us to leave after our short 3 night break but hopefully we will return soon. "La Petite Ferme" is a luxurious 5 star stay. Highly recommended. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Carla, Peter and Dood

The 4 big rooms and welcoming common areas were perfect for the 4 professionals sharing the location. The only dark point was the restricted internet connection, but access was provided by the owners themselves and some of the village shops. A great place that I sincerely recommand

I wanted a place for my whole family, children and grandchildren to enjoy and this was it. The house is set up for families. It is very well equipped with the usual household necessities but also with activities to appeal to all ages. There is a large swimming pool as well as a table tennis table and tree swing outside and lots of games, puzzles, books for young and old inside. The house is also cool in the hottest weather, we had temperatures in the nineties but not inside the house. The area is beautiful, many places to visit and enjoy and the owners have a very full folder of details of sites and routes. Despite having a full house this was a very peaceful holiday in a very peaceful place. The star gazing is wonderful, no light pollution. I thoroughly recommend it.
