Our family group of 8 stayed in the larger property here in August to celebrate my parents' Golden wedding anniversary. We had two children in our group (ages 14 & 7) and wanted somewhere where there were things to do, plenty of space, and a great location to enjoy the surrounding countryside. We chose well with this place and we all had a great time.
There are lots of things to do on the site itself, including table tennis, badminton, a covered swimming pool, lawns to play cricket, boules etc, as well as a garden and terrace area to barbecue and generally chill out. The nearby golf course at Saen Sans is very good, and if you take your bikes, there are some nice places to cycle, including into the town for coffee and cake.
The owner, Mr Davis, was pleasant and helpful when we needed him, otherwise he left us to enjoy our holiday. There was plenty of space in the house for us all to live in for the week, so we could enjoy being together, but not feel cramped. There are good cooking facilities here, and some interesting restaurants in town for eating out. Highly recommended!
