Customer Review 1
We found the whole domain absolutely ideal for a family such as ours – Grand-parents, their young and their young. It had everything to keep all ages happy. The swimming pool was immaculately maintained by Jean Louis Blanc – what a lovely, helpful man – and remained the focus of fun and games for the very young for most of the week who also enjoyed the huge well maintained garden space to run around in. For the older members of the family the Tennis Court – well secluded from those who did not wish to hear the the constant calls of “Net” etc. – provided much enjoyment. The table tennis also provided hours of pleasure and with the barbeque – also well maintained by Jean – Louis there was nothing lacking in terms of outdoor pleasure (other than, perhaps, a little more sun) Customer Review 2
As for the house we found it ideal for our family of twelve, comfortable, well furnished rooms, constant hot water and everything that we could wish for. As for the private cinema with masses of films it was the closest thing to heaven for the young in the evening and affording such a resultant peace for the parents. We were well looked after by Antonia – the maid – who was always very willing and helpful to do what we asked of her. In the evenings we used the services of Isobel who cooked some very interesting both local and Asiatic dishes and, of course, like the others was very helpful. Customer Review 3
We all left FR156 with sadness after a great holiday. Perhaps I could sum up the general mood “ Book early next year to avoid disappointment” This is the third time that we have enjoyed the connection with Private Properties Abroad and all occasions the result has resulted in nothing but pleasure.
