We have just returned from our holidays at La Vieille Grange. Its not very often that a location surpasses the description of their web site, but in the case of La Vieille Grange it most certainly did.

We were greeted on arrival by Trevor, a gentleman, who showed us around the beautiful spacious house which we made home for two weeks, each of the 8 of us felt very comfortable there and every facility that was needed was on hand.

The two swimming pools and the games room as well as the gardens, as well as some very local facilities, were more than sufficient to entertain us for the duration of our holiday, and resulted in us doing a lot less touring than we had planned.

Overall we had a wonderful time at La Vielle Grange and we do look forward to holidaying there again.

Please pass our congratulations to Trevor on great venue and our thanks to him for been a perfect host who was constantly available to us and all his guest


I just wanted to say a quick thank you for assisting with the organisation and booking of our holiday. Please also pass on our thanks to Trevor.
We had an excellent time and the gites were plenty big enough for our families to share. We particularly liked the outdoor pool, gardens and the snooker table. We also made full use of the allotment, eating fresh tomatoes every day!


Thank you for a great holiday at La Vieille Grange.  Trevor was a wonderful host, nothing was too much trouble, he was really helpful and informative.  Both families had a wonderful time and would highly recommend La Grange to others.


We are on our way back to the port after a lovely 2 weeks staying at La Vieille Grange. The setting is beautiful and Trevor has been a wonderful host. It has been the perfect holiday and it's def somewhere we would consider returning to.


La Vieille Grange is an absolute gem of a property, in a great location.  Best holiday ever and plan to return next year.


We let the whole property out for a wedding and reception and Trevor was fantastic.  So helpful, I do not know how we would have managed without his help. Everybody had an amazing time with memories to last a lifetime.  It was all just perfect.  Thank you so much for arranging it all.  We will definitely recommend La Vieille Grange and Holiday1 and will return


We have been to La Vieille Grange for your holidays on 3 occasions now, all were fantastic.  Keep up the good work!  We will be returning so get the BBQ ready!
