We all had a fantastic time at the property, and enjoyed the pool, so much so, that our grand daughter learnt to swim, so she will have especially fond memories. Kelly family August 2015
We have just returned from a very relaxing holiday at Le Cedre and wanted to pass on our Thanks. We arrived needing a well earned break with our hectic lives, the property was very clean and tidy and the pool definitely inviting. The property is in a quiet hamlet, but close enough to the village with shops, so not a problem at all. There are lots of great days out in the area, Puy du Fou was great! We all had a great and relaxing time, the heated pool was a firm favourite for the adults and children. We all (reluctantly ) left feeling very relaxed. We will definitely return and have already recommended to friends. Thank you again, you have a great property! Certainly one of the best holiday homes that we have stayed at. August 2015
Thank you Trevor for an excellent holiday home. In a great location, with so many places to visit we were spoilt for choice. The property itself had great character, the pools were fantastic, the kids were in there all the time. We returned home very relaxed and will definitely recommend to others. June 2014
A group of several families holidayed at Le Cedre and had a wonderful time - Thank you. The holiday home was clean and tidy upon arrival and was well equipped. It is a very spacious property, larger than expected which was a pleasant surprise. There were a great range of activities available, for the adults and children, and the beaches were stunning and only 45 minutes away. We will definitely return as 7 nights was not enough. Well Done Trevor. June 2013.
