Excellent large house

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ludovic ,

We had an excellent family holiday in your property .

The pool is lovely and large . Big enough for games , swimming and even a bit of gentle plunge diving off the side in the deep end .

The girls loved it . The house is large and comfortable .

My only reservations were the lack of showers and WC upstairs although there were plenty downstairs , and your nice piano was very out of tune .

There was certainly a lot of room including a library and games room .

There is lots for children to do in the area including a sandy lakeside beach , a great climbing and zip wire adventure and even waterskiing a bit over an hour away in Tremolat . This was very much geared up for total novices and for children .

Overall we very much much enjoyed our stay thank you .

Lovely, spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Hi,

We really loved our stay in the house - exactly what we were looking for with lots of space, a great pool and different areas for every to relax and hang out in. All of the bedrooms were comfortable, and the amount of bathrooms meant that there was never a wait!

The only downside was the size of the kitchen. Based on the size of the house and room it was in, as well as the amount of people the house sleeps it really was tiny. As I am sure so many of the people who rent houses like this like to, a big part of a holiday to a remote area of France for us is to cook. There was only really room for one person at a time and cooking a big meal was a little taxing! With so much space on the ground floor the house would hugely benefit from a bigger kitchen!

Aside from this we really did love the house!

Thanks

La Mazurie August 2016

  • 5 of 5

A lovely location and beautiful property for our extended family holiday. Plenty of space, fantastic pool for young children to play and adults and children to swim, very accessible for someone who is disabled, with most rooms on the level, or just one or two manageable steps. Beautiful vineyard views and plenty of private space. Property well maintained and equipped, and plenty to do in the area. Highly recommended.

An Oasis of Calm - The Ultimate in Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We took a month off from busy London to spend some time in the countryside of France. We chose this charming renovated farmhouse. The house was comfortable and spacious, with a great playroom and toys for our young son to play with inside and out. A separate sleeping area meant that we could have friends over without feeling our space and privacy was being infringed. We enjoyed shopping for French delicacies at nearby St Foy La Grande (the butcher and bread shop in particular are to be commended). We ate many of our meals outside on the terraces where we had sun in both morning and afternoon with terraces on the front and back of the house.

The highlight of our day was our walk in the neighboring fields after dinner. We also enjoyed the large selection of French and English books for both adults and kids in the library on our lazy evenings at home.

On a functional basis, the home was very clean and linens, towels etc were impeccable. To be recommended. We would come again.

Great, well-maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

I arrived at this property have no expectations, good or bad. I left with a great impression. The house was clean, well provisioned, and well preserved (it is a very old house with some new add-ons and renovations). Everything we wanted was already there and working: good internet connection, clean pool, working appliances, cooking and dining items, flat-screen TV and movies, and beautifully preserved old wooden floors and stairs that creaked in a very satisfying and quaint way when I walked on them.

While I do not have children, I noted that there were lots of pool toys for kids and, had the weather been better (I experienced a very, very rare cold spell in late May) I would probably have enjoyed them too.

The only thing necessary to bring to this house (you don't even have to bring peace of mind, as you will find yours there) is a car to visit the surrounding areas. Although there are a couple places to eat within walking distance, and a nice cherry tree in the patio, you should remember that this is the countryside. That means no Starbucks or Costa Coffee across the street. The nearest supermarché is a mile or two away, and the train station will take you an hour by foot.

In short, this is beautiful, romantic getaway in the French countryside. If you love French wine, or would like to get to know more about it, and you appreciate the tranquility of hill-upon-hill of rolling, carefully manicured vineyards, is hard to think of a better place for you to be.

It is a perfect place from which to explore the numerous castles and attractions of the famous Dordogne Vallee.

The seaside (Arcachon or Lacanau) can be reached in less than 2 hours by car or by train.

Perfectly suited for a family holiday, there are numerous activities to do in the immediate surroundings of the house. On the convenient side there is also a supermarket (Leclerc) located just 2 km away from the house, and the numerous boutiques of Ste Foy are just 5 min

Other Activities: canoing, birdwatching, wine tasting, flying

Golf: The International golf 'les Vigiers' is about 10km away from the house (a short 15MN drive). Nearer the house (walking distance), there is also a fun golf for beginners.
