The bedroom upstairs was modern and clean, the bed was a little creaky and the mattress a bit thin so uncomfortable for one of us. There was an area to BBQ with a charcoal BBQ available to use. Our host gave us champagne and honey which was much appreciated. Thanks for a nice stay Marius.

The four of us (myself, husband and our children aged 14 and 16) really appreciated the well laid out and well equipped accommodation and found plenty to do during our stay. The table tennis in one of the barns was a big hit, perfect for evenings, and the large open-air barn was great for relaxing in the shade and having a barbecue. We had a few dips in the pool too! There was also a terrace area next to the sitting room which was a sun trap and had lovely views of the local countryside, as well as table and chairs outside the kitchen and sun loungers on the grass. The bicycles were an added bonus and we enjoyed several bike rides through the peaceful local area. The Mervant forest was approx 20 minutes away and we hired pedalos and walked round the lake there, also visiting the small medieval village of Vouvant. We also visited Mervant Zoo which was a very pleasant day - up close with giraffes, tigers, monkeys and wallabies - much closer than many zoos we've visited in the U.K., and nowhere near as crowded. Puy du Fou is approx half an hour away and we had been recommended by friends to pay a visit there, and were so glad we did. It's an amazing place with spectacular shows based on various periods of history, such as the Roman amphitheatre, complete with chariot racing and lions and tigers. Yes it's busy but doesn't feel it when walking around. But most of all, we enjoyed the peaceful cottage, it's in the middle of the countryside so no traffic noise at all, and very easy to relax. Margarita was around and happy to help if asked but respected our privacy too. She has created a lovely set up and we would recommend it to anyone.
