“Idéal property for à large group in beautiful rural france”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a lovely week. There was loads of space both indoors and out for our 4 families. Nice location, cycleable into thé village. Some réal gems in area too. Île de Ré definitively worth à visit. Kids were in thé pool everyday while grown ups fired up thé bbq. A cracking holiday.

“A great place for a large family.”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

Many thanks to Pete and Steve for renting us their property. There were 19 of us all together (12 adults and 7 kids) spread across the Wheelhouse and Mill and quite frankly you could have fit in another 15 or so easily.
Unfortunately we were very unlucky with the weather but that aside it was a great place for a large family to spend 2 weeks holiday together. The bedrooms had all you needed and the mattresses and pillows were the comfiest I've come across in rental accomodation.
Both kitchens were fitted out with an abundance of items and you would be hard pressed to be short of any cooking or eating implements. In fact if I was to be ultra picky I would say that there were possibly too many pots etc which made it hard to find room in the cupboards to store the food that we bought but that was a minor detail. As mentioned on another review the additional plastic glasses and plates were a great idea for the children.
Luckily the weather brightened most evenings (except one) so not only did we get to make use of the pools but we also dined outside which is what villa holidays are all about in my opinion.
Dont be fooled by mention of above ground pools either, they were spacious with plenty of decking area around both of them for lying out on the plentiful sunbeds, and the grounds around the property are beautiful spacious and really well kept. There is loads of equipment from table tennis to various sized bikes (one of which had a trailer which our little ones all loved). Also inside there are so many books games and films to choose from for any rainy days when you decide to stay indoors.
The couple who come each week to clean the pool etc were lovely and so friendly, and you could call with any problems day or night and they drive over to sort them if needed.
Finally praise must go to Pete and Steven for the work they put in to make sure you have everything you need both before and during your stay. I would recommend them and their properties to anyone and would definately book with them again if I was to go back to that area of France.

“The perfect setting for a wonderful holiday Oui oui! Bon bon!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We hired out Thue and The Millhouse for a week in a group of 20 even though the property could easily sleep more. This meant we had access to an abundance of facilities including good kitchen space and a wonderful garden, perfect if you are a fan of the outdoors. The house is also set in picturesque countryside which you are able to explore with the many bikes available at the property. The quiet, typically French village means large groups and families shouldn’t worry about noise pollution. There are some lovely small bars and bistros providing good quality food at an affordable price. They are within a small drive that are very friendly and happy to accommodate for large groups. All in all the property is exceptional value for money this place was as much as we could possibly ask for and the perfect setting for a great holiday.
