Medieval village house in Plus Beaux Villages

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. Very well equipped, clean, tidy and very restful.

The village provided all amenities on the doorstep and everyone is very friendly. Restaurants are a bit limited in the village as there are only two and the decent one is not open very often.

There are loads of places to visit in the area, especially Lac D'Eguzon, which is very close and is lovely.

I would definitely recommend this property and may well go back myself.

Bon vacances

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful house. The house was very clean and very thoughtfully and tastefully presented. it was also very well equipped. The house itself and the whole village were fascinating, evocative and historic. We were there during a festival and there was also lots to do around the village like pony rides, fireworks and fairs. If you want to immerse yourself in French history and culture for a few days you won't get a better house than this. Excellent value.

Tres Joly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Maison Joly in August 09. It is a marvelous old house, with huge rooms very tastefully restored by the owners. It feels much more a home than a holiday rental. You get a real sense of history staying there! It's located right in the center of the medieval village of St Benoit du Sault, with restaurant and bars and shops just around the corner. There is a larger Super U abou 5 mins away. Being in the center of the village there is not a lot of outdoor space, just a small terrace at the back and across a tiny lane there is a private courtyard with bbq which is very pleasant. For sun worshipers there is a great swimming lake with beach, waterslide, diving platform and children's playground only 10 mins drive away in the neighbouring town of Chaillac. We spent quite a bit of time there as the weather was fantastic.

The neighbours were lovely and always greeted us as they came and went about their business during the day.

Overall a lovely house in a lovely village.

Highly recommend it!
