Why Tim & Ellen Weir chose Crézières

We work hard to ensure that our self-catering properties create a holiday environment that maximises the enjoyment of both adults and children. To call the garden and grounds an adventure playground is perhaps an over-statement, but there is much to stimulate and provide hours of pleasure for all. This allows everyone to relax on the terrace or poolside, knowing that they don't have to continually think of what to do next.

There is much of interest in the area and those without the constraints of school timetables can enjoy the location with all its peace and tranquillity.

What makes this cottage unique

Rural location but not too far from civilisation! Sunken trampoline so safe for all ages. Games' rooms and boules pitch. Lovely shared swimming pool and superb gardens. The cottages are tidy and well kept and are all fully equipped. Plus free wifi.

Perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a glorious 2 weeks at Les Hiboux with our 2 sons aged 5 and almost 2. It has been by far the most relaxing family holiday we have had. We stayed in La Vieille Maison which was very comfortable, well equipped and had lots of space. But the real success of Les Hiboux is the huge gardens and all the facilities for the children - the big sunken trampoline, the climbing frame, tree house, petanque area, fish pond (securely fenced off & gated) and of course the fabulous pool. And our little one was beyond excited by the sheep! The gardens are extensive and safe so we could let our older one roam and play without having to watch him every minute of the day and there were plenty of children around so he was never short of a playmate. In fact it was so relaxing and they were having so much fun that it was 9 days before we actually made it out on any trips anywhere! There's a European zoo not too far away with racoons, porcupines and lynxes which as a fun day out and we went to Ile de Re which has some lovely beaches. But the rest of the 2 weeks was just spent lounging around the gardens and pool and having a wonderful time there.

Tim & Ellen were very friendly and welcoming and very helpful with any requests we had. And anything ion the house that needed attention (e.g. our parasol blew over and broke its holder) was dealt with as soon as we asked.

We have loved Les Hiboux so much that we are already booking our return visit next year!
