Excellent choice

By Peter P on 22-Jun-2019

The house is located in a quiet corner of France, with minimal traffic noise - nothing from the nearby autoroute - yet is a short five minute drive from the nearest boulangerie and supermarket. It is a well looked after family home that has been carefully restored. We had between 4 and 10 people staying at various times over two weeks, and the house could easily cope with these numbers. The facilities are exactly what we needed and we made full use of the swimming pool and tennis courts - but the weather was so hot we didn't even have to resort to the indoor pool. When not visiting some of the nearby small towns and countryside, we spent most of the time on the veranda, eating/drinking/reading or sitting by the swimming pool when not using the tennis courts. The interior of the house was also cool during the really hot weather (35 degrees ++) for those of us who aren't sun seekers. Overall this was an excellent choice for the house itself, and its location, for a restful relaxing two weeks in the French countryside. We would be very happy to stay here again.

Lovely

By Liz Cook on 05-Aug-2017

We had a lovely lovely holiday and stay in Soicherons. The house is great, very big with lots of living space so we could all relax without being on top of each other. The weather was a little temperamental towards the end of he week so the indoor pool was a life saver as our two girls loved swimming. Also the heated outdoor pool was lovely and warm and a great size. We also made lots of use of the tennis court and outdoor gardens and swing / slide area. It's a great house for kids. We visited Vezelay on one day too which was lovely and only 40 mins away. A great stay and we would certainly recommend it!

Fantastic place

By Martin Family on 24-Sep-2013

We have stayed here many times before and with our growing extended family this was the first time we have taken children. We had a fabulous time, and everyone enjoyed it. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. There is plenty of room so we don't all get under each others feet and with 2 swimming pools and 5 children we were in the water a lot! It is set in beautiful peaceful surroundings. You really get a chance to switch off and relax. Local shops have everything you need and there are plenty of day trips to go and explore the area too. We loved it and can't wait to go back again.
