The house - it's fantastic! It's exactly the French farmhouse style house I was looking for. The owners should be really proud of how they have renovated it as they have done a great job. We've rented many holiday homes both in the UK and in Europe and Les Meuniers is definitely in our top three. We felt very 'at home' there. The outside space is amazing. The pool and garden area is such a great feature of the house and really made the holiday for us.
We've had a brilliant holiday and were so lucky with the weather. We really appreciate all your help especially with contacting the pool man for us. The next time we are planning a French holiday we'll definately have a look at your website first. August 2011
Just a quick e-mail to thank you/ the owners for the rent of Les Meuniers. We all had a fantastic time and we were wow-ed by all the facilities left in the house. In the words of my hard to please 8 year old son “10 out of 10”! Langlands family
Just to say that we had a great time & would recommend the property to anyone. June 2014
We have stayed at Les Meuniers on 2 occasions now, both were excellent. The house, grounds and location were perfect for u, we will definitely be recommending to friends and family. September 2015
The facilities on offer at this property were excellent, the have everything that you need for your holiday, great attention to details. The large garden and pool a firm favourite with all of us. The property is well located in a quiet area, yet conveniently located within the village. There were many places to explore, 2 weeks were not enough. We will definitely return to this property and cannot recommend highly enough. July 2015
