“Quiet and well-appointed family holiday place”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is a very nicely done pair of houses with a great pool area and several other possible activities on site. You need a car of course, and be prepared to drive if you want to go out as there's nowhere within sensible walking distance, but that's pretty normal for this area and there's everything you need to cook and eat together on the property. The owner is also very helpful and friendly which is always a great help.
There's en-suite bathrooms in many of the rooms, with some shared toilet facilities. The smaller house has a nicely done wheelchair access room also.
We had a great (extended) family holiday here - thanks David.

“Great holiday experience”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

These 2 lovely houses were perfect for our extended family, from 8 months to 72 years old. The houses were very clean and spacious, giving everyone room to be together or have quiet time alone and the outside eating areas are great. The boules, volleyball, table-tennis and especially the pool were a great hit with the kids but do take insect repellent as we did attract some biting insects outside. The more energetic can walk or run around the local tracks and woods.
The larger house has air conditioning if it gets really hot. Both kitchens are extremely well equipped with more crockery/cutlery/glasses etc. than you actually need so you are not constantly washing up. The dishwashers/washing machines & tumble dryers are good quality and there are plenty of hairdryers. Beds are comfortable and showers good. Bedrooms/bathrooms are all different but of roughly the same standard so good for parties of adults only who want equal facilities and not be stuck in the ‘kids bedrooms’. In the smaller house the bedroom is on the ground floor and the shower and toilet have grab handles which is helpful for those who need assistance.
The local Boulangerie does lovely croissants and pastries but you will need to drive or cycle there, a car is essential for exploring and food shopping as the houses are deep in the countryside which is very peaceful.
David is very welcoming and willing to help if necessary although we didn’t have any problems at all. Finally, the properties are even better than they look in the photographs.

“Truly excellent in every way”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We travelled from North East Scotland to celebrate my 75th birthday with my extended family. There
were 16 of us ranging in ages from 18 months to my age and we could not have asked for more in catering for this wide age range. The facilities are of a very high standard are everything is in good order and very clean. My wife and I have stayed in many holiday accommodations and we both have said that Le Villageou is the only one would want to come back to. Facilities on the site are truly first class but there are also so many places to visit in the region - our two week stay was not long enough to do it justice. We found nearby restaurants which were most welcoming for our large party and provided excellent local fare. This is one not to be missed - truly excellent in every way.

“Great Property in remote location”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The property is a hidden Gem and if you are looking to get away from it all and spend some time with friends and family without seeing the outside world this is the place for you. A car is a necessity as very little is available within walking distance but with the charming house, and all the sport that you can wish for this real is an oasis of tranquillity.

It has all modern functions and David is brilliant and friendly and provides lots of useful information.

The houses are exceptionally well maintained in a beautiful setting. We were all very impressed with everything during our stay and would not hesitate to recommend Le Villageou.

The owner was also very helpful both before and during our stay.
