Beautiful French Farmhouse
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at your beautiful farmouse, the house was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and the furniture and beds were 5 star.
The large heated pool had a shallow end with full width steps ideal for small children and a deep end for the adults, and the exterier of the house had a wonderful covered terrace for alfresco dining, a large wooden dining table, plenty of dining chairs and a large barbecue. Also the stone patio and gardens were great, there were 3 parasols and lots of comfy sunlounger beds.
The nearest village for freshly baked bread and coissants is only 5mins by car and has a restaurant, grocers and butchers etc, and there is a wonderful restaurant in Magnac Laval that is open 7 days a week and serves a 3 course menu du jour at 13 euros. There is also a beach and childrens play area at Lac de Pardoux very close to the property.
The caretaker was great and nothing was too much trouble, we would highly recomend the property and the area to family and friends, we had a fantastic time.
This is a wonderful place to spend a very relaxing holiday, really luxurious feel to the property, beautifully furnished, extremely clean and very well equipped. The location, gardens and large heated pool are fabulous and we would definitely recommend the property and the area to friends and family.

Just returned from a holiday at La Porte. The property was perfect for the 10 of us (including 5 primary school aged children). The outside space - including a wonderful sized pool - was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the French sunshine. The property was clean and well equipped and was very professionally and courteously managed by the owners and caretaker right through from booking to arrival to departure. We had a great holiday.
Many thanks for your wonderful review, we are so pleased you had a great holiday and we hope to see you again.
