“Bliss! Far from the madding crowd!”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2013

On a journey through Europe, my wife and I stayed in Hollyhock with a Portuguese friend of ours. It was outside the school holidays and we all found the whole of the property to be so tranquil and relaxing. The cottage was completely charming and comfortable and Anna and Simon’s hospitality was second to none. We are sure that it is the most perfect place to visit with young children, but in the quiet season, it is also idyllic for anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy a little bit of rural paradise. We shall definitely be returning.

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

In a few weeks time we will have stayed at Lac de Maison 5 years in a row - and have booked for 2016 already! We have had wonderful holidays at Anna and Simon's and made lots of friends while out there. The kids love it (ages 6 & 10 although they've now been there for 4 years on the trot, so it's suitable from 2 years old!) - there's heaps for them to do and they can run around safely in the huge garden, without being able to get into the pool without asking as there's a heavy gate and an alarm. Anna and Simon are perfect hosts and the bbq they do on a Monday night is legendary! There are bikes to borrow for a lovely cycle into Vasles for lunch; the latest DVDs to watch in the evenings; bbqs outside each gite - too much to mention here! Hollyhock gite has two large en-suite bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen (including Nespresso machine as of last year!) and is large enough to hang out in if the weather's too warm to be outside. It's perfect for us (2 adults; 2 kids) and I really can't praise it highly enough - the proof is that we keep coming back!

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The owners Anna & Simon really have thought of everything and ensured our stay was as comfortable as possible. If like us you are travelling by car with pre-school children you can leave the pushchair, booster seats, toys, games, DVD's etc at home as anything you may want has probably already been catered for, leaving you valuable space in the car for stocking up on Beer and Wine on the way home :o)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be booking again for 2016.
