A lovely fortnight holiday!
Sally and Ryan were great hosts. Friendly and approachable, offering advice and recommendations.
The rental is on the ground floor of their huge traditional farmhouse in a small hamlet on the mountain side.
The large kitchen diner was well equipped with everything you could possibly need (except for egg cups - which we have found to be the case in all French properties we have stayed in. Do the French not eat dippy eggs??)
We especially appreciated the separate living area with TV (multiple language channels) and sofa - very relaxing.
The separate bedroom is off the kitchen and has a very comfortable large double bed. The alcove bedrooms are off the living room - we only used these for the storage of bike/fishing/snorkelling/walking equipment so cannot comment on how comfy the double and bunk beds are.
Lots of drawers for storing clothes but perhaps slightly limited hanging space.
There are board games and books provided to keep all ages amused.
The wetroom shower/ WC is off the kitchen and is perfectly functional even before the planned renovations stated in the property description .
Further storage for bikes and other bulky equipment was offered in the washing/utility area to the rear of the property. (My husband now has sports equipment storage envy after utilising this space!)
Theres space externally to the front of the house for benches and a table with cushions provided, which we sat out at most evenings enjoying the late sunshine and the arrival of the bats at dusk. Although this is adjacent to the village through road, traffic is minimal and anyone passing by gives a cheerful wave and a smile. Some traffic noise can be heard from the main road further down the mountain, but its hardly the M20! Designated car parking was provided 15m from the front door.
There is also a grassy sloped area across the road with table and chairs under an ancient looking tree in which to relax, sunbathe and enjoy the view.
Oh the view!
We never tired of just looking across at the amazing view of the mountains and the beautiful skies - even when shrouded in misty clouds.
Overall, everywhere was spotlessly clean, decor was tasteful and relaxing, everything was as I could have hoped for.
The location of the house is perfect for the activities we wished to undertake. Close to lakes, mountains and interesting towns - we were never stuck for something to do or somewhere to go.
We would highly recommend the farmhouse as a place to stay
It's the second time my family have stayed . The cottage is perfect , spacious , spotless and a little gem amidst the stunning mountains .
John and Mariella are the most welcoming people who we really feel have become friends .
The area is stunning . After 12 years of visiting the Alps we always find somewhere else to explore , mainly thanks to John who knows the Alps and the best places to visit for those spectacular views .
Thank you John and Mariella for making this year so special for my family .
We'll be back !
