We had a fantastic holiday at La Brionniere - the property and surroundings are beautiful. July 2011
It was just what we wanted, a rural setting. The rooms are surprisingly spacious Love the way it's furnished
I feel safer knowing my kids are playing in the plunge pool rather than a full size pool shared by loads of people
I like that I can look out of the kitchen window and see and hear my children playing
thanks for letting the kids dig up the potatoes it's good for them to see where they come from.
It's so good for cycling, the roads are great no pot holes and hardly any traffic, amazing.
