We enjoyed being in the real countryside yet just 10 mins from a hypermarket. We wouldn't describe ourselves as cyclists, but enjoyed quiet gentle rides to nearby villages with medieval churches. People in the vicinity were always friendly. We loved the pool, which is fenced off, and the garden is large enough for kids to run around in. There's a table outside so its easy to have breakfast or your evening meal in the open air. The living room is cosy, there are plenty of books to read, and the bedrooms are not all next to one another so you can have an element of separation from friends, family or children if needed!
