Half term break in the countryside
A superb time we had with our 5 and 7 year old. We travelled by car from Manchester and arrived to a lovely house and welcoming by linda. The kids enjoyed swimming in neaby lakes and pools. We enjoyed the evening bbq and beer ! Well worth a trip if you want to get away from any hustle and bustle.

A lovely, typically French cottage
After having spent nearly two months in the Limousin Cottage in December and January we found it to be well equipped, cosy and comfortable. The woodburner was warm and welcoming. Linda and Sam were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble - thank you both.

Wonderful springtime hub for househunt
We arrived just as darkness was falling after long drive down from Hastings, to a warm welcome from Linda who kindly made us feel at home. My wife, brother and I had arrived for a 8 day stay property hunting. Linda was very helpful with local information and we had a great time in the area and have found our own new French home. The cottage is a wonderfully traditional French character property well equiped even English TV and wi-fi, being February it was a bit chilly outside but the woodburner in the lounge was wonderful and gave the cottage a lovely warm cozy glow. Our stay was very comfortable and we enjoyed it very much and would recommend anyone to stay.
