What we think

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa offers privacy whilst also offering the opportunity to socialise in the shared pool and garden areas. You and your children can also meet others and play at 'events' organised by Chris and Wendy – informal occasions that we went to include the vine walk, taste du terroir and teddy bears picnic."

About the owners

Wendy & Chris

After many years of holidaying in this area staying in my parents holiday home, we finally moved here in 1996. We haven't looked back. After a number of years renovating stone barns into family gites, learning how to look after our guests and drinking many glasses of wine with them, and then having two children of our own as well as becoming a registered child minder, we now feel very confident in our ability to offer just what young families really need from a holiday here in France. We have over 20 years of experience running at least 11 holiday cottages and have literally hundreds of great reviews and many return year after year.
