“What an amazing place.”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The French Retreat is a beautifully renovated barn offering both stylish and practical accommodation for large families or groups. Our four teenagers were very happy to each have their own bathroom and the open living space is huge with wonderful views. Matthew and Emma made us very welcome and were on hand to give advice on where to eat and visit. The surrounding villages and towns are picturesque and offer a wealth of amenities, shops and good restaurants. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend not only this beautiful property but also this lovely part of France.

Just had a lovely three days here, renting the barn, having had a week in the main house last year. We were a little worried that there might still be workmen on site but actually it was all peaceful and looking lovely. Our bedroom was on the ground floor and as before v comfortable and clean, with nice quality bedding and very tasteful decor. Well equipped kitchen too. Very helpful owners, the husband came and found us when we got lost arriving late at night, to show us the way in. That was the only drawback - in the dark it was hard to remember which lane it was off the main road.
