“Beautiful quiet rural location”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Extended family group stayed in the property for two weeks. House was very clean upon arrival, well equipped (except coffee machine) and spacious. The managers, Peter and Robin, were incredibly helpful throughout our stay, especially after the power cut. The older children liked the pool room, the pool and outdoor space. My memories of the holiday include:
Watching the milky way at night whilst in the pool;
Leisurely evening BBQ's;
Boules on the uneven lawns;
Visiting Charroux, Angoulême and Confolens; and
The not to be missed canoeing on the Charante.
No hesitation in recommending this property to anyone in the future.

“Fantastic house - great location to get away from it all”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed here with our 2 very active boys. They loved the quirky attic room, the pool and the freedom to explore. We loved the fact that we could sit in the shade of the garden and still keep an eye on them. It's a beautiful location in France, plenty to do within a short drive but the house itself is a welcome haven of peace an tranquility.

“Brilliant holiday destination. Highly recommended”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2011

My family and my friend's family stayed in this house in August 2011. We absolutely had an amazing time during our stay. We travelled with 3 children age 6 and under and they had a great time in the pool, we couldn't get them out of the pool.

We also did some sightseeing around the area, went for boat ride, picnic and exhausting velo-rail ride which the children loved but very tiring for the grown ups.

The place and the house was beautiful. The beds and the house was just perfect fit for all of us and the weather was gorgeous when we were there. We all had a fabulous time. I would definitely go there again and would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Liked least: its a bit far from the local supermarket, but there's a family size fridge and frezeer at the house to keep all the food shopping.

Management Response
Jan 24, 2013
The above review was disappointing to receive for a number of reasons. The property represents excellent value, given it's size, the modern facilities, and a heated pool. While I agree the swing set wasn’t available, all other facilities as advertised were in the property, and were in perfect working order.

The suggestion that our “attitude” was that the property was fine for family and friends and so should be Ok for paying guests was not however accurate. Below is a direct extract sent to the reviewer in response to an email.



“While it was our first year of booking [with Holiday Lettings]*, I am very surprised by your comments, as you are our fifth paying booking, all of the previous paying bookings also included two families, with children of various ages without a single complaint about the property...none of our other paying guests have found anything to be wrong. On the contrary they have stated what a good time they had."

* - not in original email.

The comments regarding the property managers were unwarranted, as they in fact bent over backwards to help the reviewer throughout their stay, including, going out to purchase a parasol at their specific request. The comments are completely opposite to the comments from everyone else who stayed at the property that summer.

I am not sure if they were looking for a refund?
