Thank you so much for your wonderful review, we are really pleased that you enjoyed all that is provided. It was lovely meeting you all and we hope to see you again. Although the village was at its sleepiest during your week, for the other weeks in August either the supermarket or the boulangerie were open and the bar/restaurants and boulangeries in the neighbouring village (5km) were open throughout August.

“A great place for familes and friends to relax and unwind - with the space to find your own quiet spot.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday with another family at La Belle Echappee; it is a true haven to relax and unwind. The property really lends itself to large groups; the house is very spacious and the grounds are really extensive. This meant we were all able to find a quiet spot when we wanted to read, either in the shade or sun.
Between us we have 5 children who really enjoyed the slide, swings, table tennis and pool. There are lots of other actives also available. We have fond memories of water polo in the pool, cricket till dusk followed by supper around one of the large tables outside and then sinking into the most comfortable beds.
Diana and Graham are onsite; they were the perfect hosts who very much left us to relax but were very happy to help when needed. They do not overlook the guests’ part of the property at all.

“This beautiful house and location is a wonderful place to stay for a relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This house really is something special. The owners, Diana and Graham, have put so much thought and detail into every aspect of it. Inside the facilities are truly superb with everything there that you could possibly need. All the bedrooms are tastefully furnished with so much attention to detail and the beds are extremely comfortable. We were a group of ten, ages ranging from 2 to 62, and we had so much space................at no time did we ever feel on top of each other.

Outside the pool area is magnificent with good quality sunbeds etc. and lots to keep the children occupied. The garden is huge with so many different seating areas and again, very good quality outside tables and chairs. The outside kitchen area is a really good example of just how much thought has gone into this house - it is such a good idea.

Diana and Graham are the perfect hosts and the children were fascinated with the chickens and collecting the eggs. We all loved it there and our week flew by far too quickly.

Liked best: The swimming pool and the outside areas!
Liked least: It wasn't clear to us beforehand that the owners lived onsite in an apartment adjoined to the property. Not a problem as they were so lovely and respected our privacy but would have been good to have known upfront.
