Tranquil, picturesque, stunning and relaxing are just a few of the adjectives used by former guests! Only option is to come and visit for yourself.......

We stayed in the house which was of ample size and very accomodating. The village is quiet with a bar for drinks and occasional food.

As with most of French country locations the village is fairly remote but there are many decent towns within between 15 minutes and 30 minutes drive.

Good restaurants in nearest town {and Pizza and Kebab shop if that is your thing!}.

Be prepared to drive and explore and you will find beautiful towns and absolutely stunning scenery.

We had a dog with us and we found several local woodland walks {the woods go on forever!}. Just be prepared to explore!

The house was typical French and of good overall quality and well equipped.

Overall 5 stars!!

This is a beautiful house with plenty of room for the 8 of us - inc. 4 young children. We all wanted to stay in the main house, so the gite in the garden was untouched - a shame really as it's a lovely little holiday house in it's own right. The bedrooms are enormous and the 2 main bathrooms are the biggest I've ever seen. Our children actually slept in the bathroom next to our bedroom! This isn't as odd as it sounds - it's actually more of a lovely bedroom with a bathroom behind a wall in a corner - so don't be put off if that is suggested. The house is really well equipt and the garden, although not huge, is lovely. I cannot vouch for the pool as it was too cold to get in - but a couple of the kids seemed to enjoy it.
Goulles is a friendly and attractive village with a bar and a well stocked small shop. There are lots of pretty walks in the area and cycling if you don't mind hills . . .
We all fell in love with the area and wouldn't hesitate to re-book this house if we...
