Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My wife and three children, aged 13,12 and 9 spent a wonderful week in this gorgeous property. We have been holidaying in holiday homes in France for a number of years and would consider ourselves fairly experienced. I can safely say that Kim and Jim's property is one of the best we have stayed in. The property was clean and had all the necessary comforts needed for a weeks holidaying. The grounds and pool are immaculately kept. The owners are exceptionally helpful and friendly. There is plenty to do in the area. we used it as a base to go to Futuroscope, which is about 45 minutes away. A car is essential if you are going to explore the area. I would recommend this property without reservation. We hope to return as soon as possible.
