We rented the “La Emelia” cottage for seven nights. The cottage is of exceptional quality, providing a fantastic home from home. The swimming pool and grounds are of a very high standard and well maintained. The location of the cottage provided easy trips into the local towns of Saint-Sulpice & La Souterraine where we found a range of supermarkets & restaurant’s. The area around the cottage really helped make the holiday special. The walk to the lake is literally 2mins. Access to the pool was free for children under 14years & only 3 euro’s per day / adult. I should mention at this point that swimming shorts for boys / gents are prohibited – proper swimming trunks (budgie smugglers) only. Our 7 & 9 year old children loved this pool with slides. On site is a bar / restaurant run by an English family – very friendly, basic menu but good food – can honestly recommend the fish & chip night. There is a sign posted walk along the river from the lake. The water level was low in August which meant that while the waterfall wasn’t so spectacular the kids could climb over all of the rocks and boulders that were exposed along the river – great fun was had by all.
Jacqui & Steve (owners) were there to meet us, a lovely welcome basket provided complete with a much needed bottle of wine & they were there to wave us off. They really have created something special with this place.
We will definitely return in the future.
