Beautiful private character property with lovely pool and views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at la Marteille for a week and didn't want to leave. You do need a car as it's very secluded but this area is very beautiful and peaceful. All the family loved the pool which is a good size for swimming. We enjoyed collecting our croissants each morning from the little shop and eating them overlooking the surrounding hills, and then later having a family dinner around the big outdoor table underneath the stars which are very clear in this area. Joelle and Michael were very friendly and helpful when needed. Michael greeted us with a lovely cold beer that was much appreciated after a long drive. We would definitely return.

Family Holiday 2018

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 stayed at the property of Joelle and Michael Struffert. They were excellent owners and although they live attached to the holiday property we only saw them when we wanted an opinion about places that we had planned to visit.

We had visited the Dordoyne region before but this area was new for us and did not disappoint.

The weather all week was very hot and the pool was a must in the afternoon especially for the 4 children.

The local village had one main shop run by 'nanny' and you can walk there, drive there or borrow a bike but beware the hill on the way back is quite steep as I found out one day ! The shop seems to sell everything and there are supermarkets 10-15 kms drive away.

Apart from the pool there was plenty to amuse the children, with swings, table tennis, badminton, boule and inside the farmhouse there was every board game ever invented together with lego by the box-full.

Beautiful and clean...but soooo hooooot

  • 4 of 5

An excellent overall state. He stayed with three other families in the pool was clean and the beds were comfortable and Truly this is a beautiful area. However unfortunately my computer got stolen either in the room or in my car while on the property, and the night sweats really hot. They need air-conditioning and surveillance cameras.

Owner's Response: We are happy that our gîte has pleased you! But we do not see the utility of installing surveillance cameras. Just lock the doors when you leave the house! No lock was damaged so there was no theft by housebreaking while you were away. However you have invited a lot of people to swim in our pool. What did they do? Do you want to be watched by cameras during your stay? We are sorry for the heat. We do not like being disturbed by the noise of an air conditioner. We prefer to close windows and curtains during the day and to ventilate the evening and the night and to use the fans.

I find myself slightly reluctant to create a review .....after all, after our amazing week, we want to go back again and again so MORE competition is NOT what we want!! However that would be so selfish towards Joelle and Michael. They were excellent hosts who went above and beyond to make our party - a large family group of 12, ranging from 2 to almost 70 (ME!) - comfortable, very welcome and they willingly assisted us with the planning of all our outings, during our week long stay.....without being intrusive. The house was perfect; the garden well maintained with a large lawned area, roomy enough for whole family rounders, cricket, etc. when the weather permitted, and the beautifully maintained and heated pool, with security fencing, was very popular with us all.

Everything about the property and it’s surrounds fulfilled all our expectations. Thank you Joelle and Michael for a lovely holiday!

Beautiful villa within easy reach to all the local amenities supermarkets restaurants and lots more

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a lovely welcome from the owners we got a bit lost in the village but with a phone call soon got sorted infact the owner cycled down to show us the way

We were a family of 12 with ages from 2 years to 74 years we got sorted out with rooms that really suited our family group

every thing was there in the villa

toys to keep the children happy plus adults that had a lovely time some behaving like children at times ,!,! ....

We have stayed in many villas in France but this was by far our nicest

We knew the area well as we once owned a small house near by in Aubeterre sur drome that bought back many happy memories

To sum it up lovely villa in a lovely part of France with helpful owners

Beautiful swimming pool that we spent a lot of time in the weather was really warm so it was difficult to keep the children away from

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of nine people spread across 3 generations although still room for more. Plenty to do onsite table tennis, boule etc and of course the pool where the temperature of the water reached 29 degrees earlier in the week. Very hot there to start with so the shade under the trees was most welcome, there is plenty of room to spread out if you want a quiet spot. Missing the morning walk (ok a couple of times the car!) into the village to collect croissants, pain au chocolat etc. The owners Michel and Joelle very attentive without being intrusive.
