“WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed in August for one week with my wife and 11 year old son.
Lovely spacious apartment, fantastic pool.
John and Kate the owners are lovely welcoming couple and make it a very relaxing place to stay.
Ideal location for exploring the region and nearby lake
Will be back next year.

“Fantastic, well-equipped self-catering accommodation.”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We've stayed twice at La Jolie Maison, once in each apartment, and would happily go back to either. The apartments are huge with the best equipped kitchens of any self-catering accommodation we've been in. We travelled with a baby this year and Kate and John provided a changing mat, baby bath, cot and high chair without us even asking!

We also like having use of a washing machine for no extra charge, the swimming pool (which the children love) and the garden (especially in apartment 1 which has its own direct access to the garden).

The town has a very good (and cheap) outdoor pool which is open in the summer, and we love visiting the beaches at Lac Vassiviere, which are lifeguarded during the day. There's a supermarket 5 minutes drive away, and more than one bakery a short walk away. The location of the property is ideal, being in town, but still very quiet.

The owners, Kate and John, make the holiday for us, by being so friendly and thoughtful, yet completely unobtrusive.

“The real French experience!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed here last month with two friends. Everything about the holiday was perfect. The house was comfortable, clean and contained everything we needed and more!
The owners were absolutely lovely, so helpful and on hand if we needed them.
The indoor pool was amazing, a perfect place to cool off after sunbathing in the afternoon!
The town where the house is situated is idyllic (it has been used in films) and has some nice little cafes and restaurants. There's also a great little market on a couple of days a week where you can stock up on local cheeses and wines!

The lake is about 15minutes away, and its a great place to spend a few days, either sunbathing or making the most of the many water sports they have on offer.

For a really relaxing, and truly French experience, I couldn't recommend this place more! Can't wait to return!

“An idillic break away in a beautiful house and lovely region of France”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a great time at John and Kate's lovely house. The children loved the pool and garden. Being within easy walking distance of the delightful town of Eymoutiers made getting croissants and baguettes very easy every day. The lakes were only a 10 minutes drive or so away and a great day out. Wish we could have stayed another week and really looking forward to going back again soon.

“People , place and pool - all top class”
Reviewed 27 February 2013 for a stay in July 2012

The hosts were friendly and very helpful. The accommmodation is a real blend of comfort, quality facilities and of course the swimming pool was a real winner. Mind you there are lovely beaches at the nearby lakes which are well worth a visit with free water taxis across the different areas. have to mention the town complete with market day and enough shops and restaurants to enjoy without being overcrowded. Felt I had a truly "french " holiday
well worth a visit .

“Fantastic base for your holiday”
Reviewed 26 February 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We have stayed at La Jolie Maison for the last 3 years (2010,11 & 12) and thoroughly enjoyed our time with John & Kate. They could not have been more helpful.
The house is spacious, clean and has all the amenities you would want. The swimming pool downstairs was especially popular with our young daughter.
Eymoutiers itself is ideally located as a holiday base, with lots of places to visit within easy travelling distance. The town folk are both friendly and helpful.
Local restaurants & cafes are all very good.
I don't think we have a single grumble about our stays at La Jolie Maison, that's why we kept going back.
