An upside down house with a very private feel: the owners are on site but looking the other way and there are no other guests. You have the run of the swimming pool with wooden deck and loungers in the pretty garden surrounded by mature trees. On less than sunny days use the large play barn for ping pong, a reading corner full of books, a comfy seating area and doors which bring the outside in.
Hire bikes (or bring your own) and head off into La Forêt de la Double or walk along trails through peaceful countryside. Check Margaret’s information board for restaurant recommendations: you’ll find basics for cooking and a welcome hamper in the sociable open-plan kitchen with a bottle of wine and local produce; stock up in Le Pizou, ten minutes by car.
Fire up the barbecue on your south facing terrace, open a bottle of local wine and let the children have (yet another) swim or play a game of football in the field. This is a quiet and safe place.
