We stayed at La Ferme des Tourterelles in July of this year and had a lovely time. The accommodation was fantastic, clean and comfortable - it was very hot when we were there but fans were provided to help cool down the bedrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped and plenty of supermarkets nearby (10 min drive). The garden was perfect for our 2 and 5 year old to run around in - swing/climbing rope, table tennis and boules were all brilliant. The swimming pool was great - very safe behind a secure gate. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area, the lakes were very child friendly and the kids loved playing at the beaches. Nigloland is a total must for all young families, we went twice! We tended to eat in - making use of the BBQ on a few evenings. The village is small and the location rural, which suited us fine. Finally, Sarah and James were brilliant hosts, they made sure we had everything needed, including running up some black out blinds for the kids room on our first day! A fabulous holiday - would highly recommend.
