We have just come back from our week at Les Chenes and whilst the weather was a little disappointing we had a fantastic time playing with all the garden games provided, BBQing and generally relaxing. Thank you so much to Mandy for the ease in booking and the detailed information, Margaret and Kenny for ensuring we had everything we needed and Chris for paying an extra visit to clean the pool after the rain.
Our 3 year old absolutely loved her holiday house and made the most of the pool every minute the sun came out, we were very impressed at the gated pool area as it meant we did not need to worry about her venturing off.
We hope to be back for a holiday next year, perhaps with the relatives

From the moment we drove into Les Chenes (recommend hiring a car as it is a decent distance from local amenities) to the moment we left we were blown away. The house, the grounds, the pool all wonderful and spotlessly clean. The booking experience coupled with the personilisation from Mandy made the whole process a dream and my 5 month year old son loved the grounds to roll around in.

Would highly highly recommend and will certainly be returning - thank you very much to Mandy, Margaret, Kenny and Chris.

We returned for second year and was not disappointed. Still as fabulous as we remembered.Villa is exceptional with everything you need, the pool and other facilities are outstanding.
The area too is magnificent, so much to see and do. We even managed to find an aerodrome where we were able to take a flight over the villa and surrounding area, brilliant!. Karting was a favourite with my husband and teenage son.
Maggie, the manager and her husband, were extremely helpful and friendly and she makes sure the villa is of a very high standard when it comes to cleanliness.
So all in all, another successful holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed to the max

A beautiful villa with private sprawling gardens. We had a wonderful week in this lovely part of France. Spotlessly clean, very well equipped and large private pool. Our kids loved the games room and garden. Peaceful location and easy to get to from Bordeaux airport. Would love to return and highly recommend.

“A lovely place to unwind”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The villa is down a little lane in the small village of Neuvicq. It is beautifully private but doesn't feel isolated. The property is well maintained and contains everything you could possibly need, including a good sized swimming pool and an outside eating area/BBQ. The gardens are huge, plenty of space for kids to play, and all safely fenced in.
Mandy, the owner, was very helpful and friendly when we booked the villa, and the information folder she sent us prior to our holiday was brilliant.
Maggie, the manager, was there to greet us when we arrived and called in half way through the week to make sure everything was ok. She was lovely, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Her and Chris (pool man) gave us some great tips on where to shop, places to visit etc.
A car is essential to explore the area, but there is plenty to see and do within an hours drive of the villa. This is a lovely area of France, miles of vineyards and rolling countryside, but there are plenty of sporting activities close by so you can have as active, or relaxing a holiday as you like. For bad weather days the villa has plenty to keep kids amused, including table tennis, play station and loads of DVDs, sky TV, books and games.
Word of warning, there is no wifi nearby so teenagers may be forced to communicate verbally!

The only criticism we have of the holiday is we didn't have enough time to see everything we wanted to, so this means we will have to return in the not too distant future!

“Happy Days at Les Chenes”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What a delightful place to stay. Villa lovely and set in a large garden great for relaxation or for children to play in. Everything was perfect. Loved the solar heated pool. Good barbeque area. Plenty of places to visit each unique in its own way. Convenient to nearest village Montguyon. Cannot wait to get back and as there will be a flight from Belfast as well as Dublin to Bordeux it is easy to get to. Roll on next year.
