Dominique was a very gracious host and the property was beautiful. Wish our stay was longer so we could have explored the area more. Hopefully next time.....

It is hard to describe in words how amazing this property is. Gorgeous, beautifully-restored buildings from the 15th and 17th centuries, scores of varieties of roses and other flowers growing on stone walls, manicured gardens, and a hospitality from Dominique that was so warm, it felt like we were being welcomed by family. The La Garde rental was well-furnished, very clean, and had fast internet. The children had a wonderful time jumping on the trampoline, playing ping pong, taking walks through the woods, watching the ducks, and swimming in the beautiful pool. This is one of those rare times when you rent a place from across the world and it is even more amazing than it looks in pictures. Thank you, Dominique, for your warm welcome, your kindness to the children, and for sharing your home with us for a few days. We can't wait to come back one day!

La Garde is on site of a beautiful property hosted by very kind hosts. Dominique and her husband welcomed us to their gorgeous site. She even got us some welcome/settle in bits in the fridge with some home made jam. The grounds are amazing, there is a massive garden and even a forest to go for some walks that belongs to the hosts. Just outside is another bigger part of forest to enjoy walks and for the kids (or grown ups) to ride their bikes. Our son loved 'the cross' with some little bumps. The kids enjoyed watching the horses and Dominique driving around on her little tractor/lawn mower to tend to the garden and we all enjoyed playing ping/pong, badminton and the children the trampoline. The bedrooms were lovely decorated and the use of the barbecue was great. The only suggestions I had was to maybe have some more comfortable chairs outside the property and the light in the bathroom (when we were there) was too low so we bumped our heads on it a few times. During your stay I would thoroughly recommend visiting La Roche-Posay and Angles-sur-l'Anglin. Dominique and Philippe (not sure if this is spelled correctly) thanks again for sharing your beautiful space with us!

We spent three nights at La Grange with our children (aged 10 and 9) and we wished we could have stayed longer. The property and the grounds are beautiful and Dominique and her husband instantly made us feel relaxed and at home. There were plenty of activities for the children to enjoy (fantastic swimming pool, trampoline, table football, petting the horses, exploring the grounds and grooming the dogs!) and it was incredibly convenient for visiting Futuroscope. Thank you so much !

The apartment is well furnished, the kitchen is very large with plenty of cutlery. The second bedroom thaty girls slept in was particulary pretty. The land surrounding the property is beautiful, there are woods and a lake and the whole property looks like it use to be a small castle. The hosts were very accommodating especially as we arrived late on the first day. The only problem was the weather but i cant blame the hosts for that.

Les Meurs is "Heaven on Eart". Werkelijk een fantastische locatie. Dominique en haar man hebben een kasteel en de tuin omgetoverd tot iets heel bijzonders. De accomodatie

Née dans une famille nombreuse, mère de six enfants et grand-mère de 8 petits-enfants dira combien j'aime les maisons pleines et le mélange des générations.
Mon mari et moi partageons l'amour de la musique et des voyages, notre grande passion reste l'accueil de nos enfants-petits-enfants, de nos amis, et la création de jardins. L'entretien de celui des Meurs requiert avec bonheur le plus clair de mon temps.
Ayant fait partie de la grande famille des jardins ouverts à la visite, l'accueil de visiteurs m'a donné infiniment de joies que j'espère retrouver en étant tout "jeune" membre de l'équipe Airbnb.
