The houses worked out very well for us as a family.  The covered patio and pool area were fabulous!!

A.K. Chez Bouchard

We are waiting for the whole fiasco around brexit to progress a little (!) before booking anything for next year so we may be back in touch to see if you still have availability. We love the seating area and pool.

We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely properties. It's clear that you have made a big effort to ensure they were renovated to a high standard. Both properties were perfectly suited for our group.

Just a quick note to say how much we all enjoyed staying at ‘Mimosa’ the last couple of weeks.  The accommodation worked very well for us all, it was wonderful to spend some family time together and ‘Mimosa’ provided that for us.  You have renovated the property beautifully. A lovely area of France, with plenty to explore

Dear Caroline and David

We had a wonderful time - thank you. You have a fantastic property in an ideal location for a number of our favourite haunts. The Gite itself was great for our needs too enabling the kids to have a room each.

Hi Caroline/David,

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our week in France and to thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely property.? We visited so many wonderful places and arrived home feeling rather exhausted yesterday evening.

Thanks again.

D.S. Le Palmier

Dear David & Caroline 

We had a lovely time staying at les Rosiers, very relaxing and the house was just right for all our needs and very picturesque. The pool and games room were particularly enjoyed by our children.… just trying to get back to normal now!

C.R. Les Rosiers

Thank you Caroline & David

We had a wonderful time thank you


Hi Caroline

We stayed at your properties end Aug/beg Sept. Needless to say we had a fabulous time, just like last year! So thank you for that.....



We had an absolutely fantastic time at Les Lauriers, fantastic place in a wonderful part of the world hope to go back with some friends in the future.

MS (Les Lauriers)

We had a great time thank you! We had lovely weather too! 

MB (The Old Cottage)

We had a super time thanks. The house was lovely, the weather fabulous and the other guests at the other properties were all very amenable company too.  All in all a great holiday.  Just rather sad to be back at work. The house was in a delightful spot and the children loved the pool and the trampoline; they weren’t too adept at table tennis though as they were having difficulty keeping the balls on the table at 5 and 6 years old!

CM (Les Rosiers)

PS - had a fantastic time in the house, it is absolutely lovely and perfect for kids, also great location for day trips and beach visits, very happy with our stay, we were sad to be leaving after a week and wish we had booked 2! Thank you! 

AB (Les Rosiers)

Thanks for enabling us to have a super two weeks!

RC (Langlade)

Cannot quite believe it was only a week ago that we left, it seems rather a long time ago now!  We had a really enjoyable stay and think you have made a great conversion of the property.

CC  (The Barn, Chez Bouchard)

Hello David & Caroline

I just wanted to take two minutes to write you a few lines and let you know just how AMAZING our recent stay was in your houses (Le Palmier and Les Lauriers).

We are a biggish group 13 in total of all different ages ranging from 2 - 47 and without exception we all had the most fantastic time. The area the houses are located was both beautiful and tranquil which gave us adults the time to re-charge our batteries and sample some of the gorgeous local wine ( & cognac!!!) and the gardens/pool were so safe and kid friendly that the younger members in our party had the time of their lives. The houses were so clean and so sympathetically renovated that they captured the 'French' feeling perfectly and as one of the party who got to sleep in the master bedroom in Les Lauriers....I felt totally spoilt!

We will definitely be returning (try and stop us!!) and I will highly recommend your properties to anyone who will listen. 

RB (Langlade)


Dear D, we loved the place, the surrounding and, of course, the pool.


We had a lovely time at The Barn and exploring the surrounding area where we found some great restaurants. Thank you.


We are pleased to say thank you for the week we could spend in your old cottage, it has been a wonderful week for us and our friends


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Langlade – it was a superb holiday all round. Thank you 


We definitely enjoyed our holiday at Le Platane!

We had the most fabulous time, the house was wonderful.


We had a lovely time in your property – thank you so much.


Yes, we really enjoyed our holiday. Can we book for next year please!


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, despite the dramatic weather!


We had a fab Holiday – for the third time!


Hi Caroline and David - yes we had a fantastic time thanks.


Thank you so much we had such a wonderful time.

The house was wonderful, immaculate and very well equipped. 

We hope to come next year.



Caroline and David

As always we had an amazing time!  Spending time with good friends is always precious.  And the children had a fantastic time too - 7 of their best friends on tap! Thanks so much for making such an fantastic holiday possible! A&W.S

Many thanks for a wonderful stay, a truly lovely house and we had a wonderful time. B.M.

We had a great week in your cottage and garden and enjoyed the area very much indeed! R.D.

We had a lovely holiday. Your cottage is beautiful and the setting delightful. R.M.

We had a really lovely time - the kids loved it and we found it very relaxing and lovely to have our extended family together, yet with our own individual spaces. N.L.

I had meant to drop you an e-mail sooner to thank you for allowing us to stay at Le Palmier. It was wonderful!!  The property itself was very spacious and ideal for two families. The pool was amazing. Many hours spent laying in the sunshine which was in the 30's every day. TV and WiFi was the icing on the cake. We didn't tour as much as planned this year owing to the weather being so good, so lots more to see next time. We met lovely families also who were staying in the neighbouring properties. It was like one big happy family atmosphere! One final point of note, your concierge/ caretaker Chris. He is such a nice guy. I had a good long chat with him and he filled me in on a lot about the region, and things to see and do. He was a very hard worker on the days he was there, and I really do think he's an asset to you. We are in discussions on our plans for next year already and my wife and children loved it, so we may well be in touch very soon. S.D.

We really enjoyed our holiday. The first week was hot and the second week very comfortable temp wise.  The sad things about holidays is how quickly you move back into your routine and forget the benefits of relaxing in the sun.C'est la vie. M.H.

We have just got back from our lovely 2 weeks at Les Lauriers. What a great place! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The weather was searingly-hot the first week, not quite so but still warm for the second. We took full advantage of the outside dining and of course, the pool .... so we're back fully refreshed. We met with Chris a few times, positively charming and helpful. Always reassuring to find someone who knows the house and can advise on the area. MD
