There are tables, chairs and parasols at intervals around the outside of the house so that we were able eat in the shade and admire the garden at any meal. The garden was sufficiently big to allow us to put up a badminton net and still have room for the boys to run around when they were not in the pool, where they spent hours every day. It was our first encounter with a Basque plancha, which is so much better than a barbecue. The location of the house is peaceful and rural with distant views and the local roads are quiet, a joy to drive on after the crowded roads in south-east England. The week was over far too quickly.

The pool was excellent and much used. The village was very pretty and it's inhabitants were friendly and welcoming. Thank you Rosemary and Alan.
