“An amazing first family holiday!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a totally amazing first holiday with our 10 month old Twins at Lac de Maison. The Gites are so well equipped for babies, toddlers and children, that we were able to travel so lightly that we could see out the back window of our car for the first time ever! I didn’t expect our first holiday with small babies to be relaxing but it was – there was so much to keep the small ones occupied that they were content every day, Anna and Simon provided us with the most amazing meals that we felt we were staying in a five star hotel and the gorgeous countryside really helped us feel like we had got away from it all.

The babies particularly enjoyed splashing in the pool and rolling around in the ball pit in the play barn, their Daddy enjoyed monopolising the trampolines and riding the bikes, and I just enjoyed drinking wine and watching the smiling faces! There was also loads to do in the area, from gentle bike rides, to Monkey Valley (I have to admit I think I enjoyed it even more than the babies!), to gorgeous lake beaches.

Anna and Simon were the most accommodating hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. When we arrived they had set the gite up with everything we needed and it was like arriving home! The gites are thoughtfully arranged to that each one has its own space and privacy allowing some much needed family time together, but you are near the communal facilities so if you want company or playmates you can have it! We will most certainly be returning.

Thank you Anna and Simon – you made our holiday truly wonderful!

“Fun for all the family”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had such a brilliant holiday at Lac de Maison I feel compelled to write my first trip advisor review! Trying to find something that provides relaxation for adults, entertainment for a 4 year old, and all the equipment we need for a 10 month old is not easy, but Anna and Simon achieve all of that and throw in top tier hosting skills on top. They really make the place - it is like staying with friends (friends who give you lots of space and cook for you whenever you want!!). We stated in Rose Cottage. It is very well equipped and spotlessly clean, with plenty of space for us all. Plenty to do within a short drive, although you may find it hard to get everyone away from the gite/pool/garden/playbarn... We loved it!

“Totally relaxing - even travelling with a 2yr old”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

An excellent holiday for parents with young children. The cottages were lovely, Anna & Simon couldn't have been more welcoming and the play facilities were wonderful. Our 2 yr old was in his element and really enjoyed the freedom that the safe environment allowed him. Best touch was the indoor playbarn so that he could come indoors in the hottest part of the day, but didn't have to stop playing.
Anna's cooking was gorgeous - so nice to still have a couple of restaurant-quality meals without leaving your cottage!
We weren't convinced that it would be possible to relax on holiday with a toddler, but at Lac de Maison we certainly managed it.
