A very nice "for the family" place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This house is really an old family home as states the title. the house, the accomodation, ... all are part of history. The house is really big, plenty of room for 15 people including children.

The garden-park is also huge ( "wild" style) , this is the very best part of the place, since children could play full time outside with the trees , sheds, pieces of wood, bikes, etc...

It is also possible to hike in the surroundings. The landscape is nice. Many flowers in May.

Piano is not running well, but french pool is ok.

Equipment is fine, double bed matress are very good (simple beds not as good, but were dedicated to children while our stay) and the owners are really helpful and can adapt to some of our needs.

Nevertheless, this house could be cleaner, that's the only negative point we could see. Even if we spent are really nice week-end there, less dust and cobwebs would have made it even better!
