Feedback from previous guests

Tres belle maison au calme. On a apprecié la piscine, les grandes chambres et le tranquillité des lieux.

Famille Collas




Thanks for a lovely stay in this beautiful villa. We had a wonderful time relaxing, swimming, playing table tennis, exploring the area and chillaxing in what is truly a fabulous setting.

Pereira and Bradley Families




This was a vacation as vacations should be – no worries, as the French say a l’aise. There were a surprisingly large amount of activities in the region to visit and we did not see them all so maybe – who knows …

Coppens Family




We enjoyed our stay on your wonderful house from first sight. How wonderful a view driving up the path into this “French picture”. Your house is decorated with love and great taste. We felt at home immediately. It is complete and we experienced peace and quiet. We came for a week and de-stressed, slept for many hours with birds singing, butterflies and all other beautiful countryside joys. We enjoyed the pool and the barbecue and our dogs loved their holiday in the countryside of L’Ancienne Ecole. Thank you for the wonderful, peaceful and quiet experience in your home.

Jesse, Jorn, Pieter




We’ve had a fabulous fortnight in this stunning house. The boys have loved staying in their “mini-chateau” and were captivated with the fact they were staying in an old school! The pool was fabulous – thank you.

Keilly




Thank you so much for the most lovely week. What a special, special place – the house draws you in – and the books, the pictures, the plays, the posters … And in the house itself every tiny detail has been thought about. What a privilege to have been here! And, of course, the garden. The beautiful pool and the pool house strewn with roses; rosemary, mint and chives. And our two dogs loved it as much as we did – thank you again.
