The holiday was magnificent, for several reasons. La Bournaguet, as you know, is in a stunning location with a fabulous garden and court and pool. So private, yet close to exquisite sites. Bedrooms and sitting room fabulously comfortable. But what was particularly excellent was the hands on support we received from Mary-Bel and her team. NOTHING was too much trouble — we had air conditioning units delivered to get us through the heatwave, advice about vineyards and places to see as well as useful practical information. I think the owners have clearly got the property managed in a very professional way and we felt at home there, but also well supported. Thank you too for finding Chef Guy to shop and cook, as with a house this size it is incredibly helpful. He is an excellent chef.
There is nothing I can suggest that would have made the holiday even more wonderful. So nice to be in France, in a French owned house, staffed by people who know their region and are supremely helpful. So, thank you for what I think must be our eighth Private Properties Abroad holiday!………….2019
