My sisters and I were on vacation at French Activity Holidays in September of 2015. We had a wonderful time! The house is clean and welcoming with beautiful countryside views from each of the bedroom windows. On clear days you can see the Pyrenees Mountains from the living room! Even while being out in the country, we were able to... More

Spent a week at FAH as a group of six, I could write a book on our stay but I will sum it up in one sentence. Hosts (Gill & Tim), the accommodation and home cooking, the stunning scenery, the activities (there is something for everyone) and a taste of the real France (yes this will include wine) is utterly...

We stayed for a week in August with our 2 young teenagers. The house is in a beautiful and quiet location. The pool is great and there is table tennis, badminton and cycles for you to use when you wish. My daughter went riding with Jill on a number of occasions, she was looked after superbly and came back beaming... More
