“Perfect location”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Accommodation - We stayed in the middle apartment which has three bedrooms and one bathroom. The accommodation is typically French and has all that is required to make it a relaxed holiday. The three bedrooms are all a good size and furnished with plenty of storage space to pack away all your things and make you feel at home. The owners, John and Kate, were on hand if needed and were also great at giving tips on local places to visit and unusual events that might be worth a look. The indoor pool was brilliant and the garden area was perfect for a a few quiet hours in the sunshine.

Eymoutiers - is bustling little working town. We've been looking for a busy town to stay in for years and finally found one with Eymoutiers. With a choice of bakers, butchers, stationers, antique shops, cafes and chemists along with a large supermarket down the road, you don't need to venture further if you'd rather stay put. The regular markets are well stocked and well attended and one day, we even woke to a "brocante" which had pretty much taken over the entire town.

Wider area - Eymoutiers is set in an incredibly beautiful part of France. In places it is very much like the Black Forest of Germany, with tall, dark trees covering the hilly landscape. Just driving around takes your breath away. There is a huge lake near to the apartment, perhaps a ten minute drive (although also accessible by train), Lac de Vassiviere. This lake offers sandy beaches with cafes, watersports, cycle routes and playgrounds. We spent nearly every day on the beach. There's an island on the lake where our two boys had a go at pony trekking and where there's an art museum and a good little cafe/ restaurant.

Overall an amazing holiday. We were lucky enough to be there for four weeks and were never short of things to do. A day in Limoges, a day in Perigueux to pick up the Tour de France, a couple of days at different lakes and beaches and the time soon passed. This is a great apartment in a very beautiful part of France.

“A wonderful relaxing stay.”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Wonderful apartment. Plenty of space for two lively kids in the apartment. They loved the pool. All rooms very generously sized. Kate and John were very welcoming and helpful and seem to keep such a beautiful garden effortlessly. Direct access from this apartment to the well equipped patio and garden. Eymoutier is a very sweet little town with all amenities within walking distance. Lovely markets and buildings and a very good heated pool to supplement the pool at the house. Nearby Lac de Vassiviere absolutely fantastic for the whole family. I'd definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

“Once again everyone had a terrific time, so friendly so much to recommend”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our fourth visit in 5 years, and once again everything was just as you would want it. Kate & John along with Mo and Mariosa were lovely, and nothing was too much trouble. The Apartment was spotless, the garden pretty & tidy. All the facilities/amenities up to scratch. Look forward to returning very soon. Would recommend La Jolie Maison as an excellent Family Holiday location.

“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!
