we arrived after a long drive at la Grande Maison in the middle of the night, despite this the owners woke up, put the kettle on and made a cuppa and settled our family of five in. We were also bowled over by the welcome hamper of cheese, fruit,wine and other provisions. Mary and John the owners went above and beyond to be really helpful we didn't have one dull day as they advised us on the best activities to do during the day including fabulous sandy beaches, and boating on the stunning Lac de Guerledan. In the evenings there was plenty to do on the property including a fab hot tub to keep the kids entertained.
The house is a traditional French farm house, really spacious and brilliantly equipped we wanted for nothing.
A week wasn't long enough we will definitely return again and probably take our dogs as there is loads of walking and the teenagers next time as there is plenty to entertain all ages. Overall one of the best holidays we have ever had, I would highly recommend!
A comfortable place but not as high a quality as expected from the description. The kitchen is well supplied with all that is needed. We were in the bedroom with the Wisteria over the window, left hand side of the property. Shower was rather cramped but overall the room was adequate. The lounge was okay although we did try using the DVD player to play a couple of interactive quiz games but it did not function properly. A very good welcome pack of supplies which was much appreciated. A very nice garden and seating area to both sides of the property. We were warned about possible mosquito problems and despite the plug ins and cream provided we were rather badly bitten during the second half of the week. Be aware of the this hazard!
