Beautiful part of France. Lots to explore near by. But the best thing is hanging by the pool and relaxing in a stunning house. Everything you could want the house is spacious and very well looked after. Great vineyards as well as some hidden gems of restaurants. This year we went canoeing which was a great day out in Saint antonin.
The farmhouse is amazing. The house is cosy and comfortable and nice to stay in. The maid services was very good. We stayed with lots of kids and they had an amazing time as well. The view is superb and the swimming pool is lots of fun.
Nous avons passé une fantastique semaine dans la somptueuse villa de Michael.
Nous étions 2 couples avec 3 petits enfants (2 ans, 2 ans et 4 ans) et nous avions même trop de place tant la maison est grande et regorge de petit recoins et espaces très cosi.
Cette villa a vraiment un cachet exceptionnel, bien plus marqué que dans toutes les autres locations que nous avions faites par le passé.
Les photos ne sont vraiment pas surfaites : la vue est imprenable, et la piscine très agréable! Les kids ont adoré!
L'accueil de Michael le premier jour était très sympathique, et un couple de concierges était disponible pour toute question durant le séjour. Ils nous ont d'ailleurs aidé très rapidement et de manière très efficace. Enfin, le ménage est fait deux fois sur le séjour, ce qui rend les vacances encore un peu plus confortables... :)
Définitivement une excellente option si vous voulez résider dans la région. Nous y retournerons sans le moindre doute.
Thank you for your hospitality Michael !
Maison bien équipée, grande piscine, belle vue et propriétaire très prévenant.
Très bon séjour.
The farmhouse and its environs cannot be recommended highly enough for a really wonderful holiday. The house itself is exquisite, large, very comfortable and beautifully furnished in perfect taste and absolutely everything one could want is provided. The kitchen is magnificent and the pool also is excellent. Veronique and Gilbert who look after the house and the pool could not be warmer and more helpful as was Michael the property's owner who gave us the keys. We ate most of our meals on the veranda with magnificent views over the countryside listening to the crickets as the sun fell and our memories of the tranquility and stillness will help us survive the British winter! We were five adults but the house is also perfect for families with young children with a large and safe garden. The hamlet is quiet although there is a small town locally with a good supermarket but many very attractive historical towns and bastides are a close drive. A perfect holiday; we are already filled with nostalgia!
A truly 5* experience!
The house is great, looks exactly as advertised and photographed. It's beautifully furnished down to the kitchen for those who love to cook. The view is stunning, the swimming pool big enough to do laps. The host is very helpful and sweet. I highly recommend the house and I plan on renting it again.
