Before my visit I read aTrip Adviser Review on this Village de Vacances entitled "Fuir" damning its cleanliness, amenities and friendliness. We therefore entered with some trepidation but we need not have worried.We were immediately shown to a comfortable, spotlessly clean gite by a friendly and helpful member of staff and settled in for an extremely happy week.The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable-all the more commendable as their English and my French were about the same limited level- and the french holidaymakers did their very best to include us. Prince George,William and Kate, the Queen,and Di-Di (Princess Diana ) were very useful in the Entente Cordiale ! The environs of the village were very pleasant, with a series of lakes nearby and some attractive,peaceful villages and interesting old towns and it was a good base for exploring further afield as the roads were direct and relatively quiet to drive .
I think your previous French reviewer could not have read the VVF prospectus .These villages promote a particular philosophy ;they offer a "green" lifestyle, with simple ,albeit very well planned, accommodation as a background to helping their guests get to know some beautiful areas , and (though privacy is scrupulously respected ) each other through communal activities thoughtfully adapted to different age groups. Forge- Les -Eaux was my 20th VVF village and I thank it and it and its predecessors for some wonderful holidays were I have been able to meet french people in congenial suroundings.
