A little slice of heaven

By Cathy Monteith on 02-Sep-2023

We stayed in LHFH for 3 weeks in September. The party included our 2 young kids, my husband and my parents. This self catering property has been renovated beautifully and was clean on arrival. It is a remote and peaceful setting which suited us perfectly and having some French was very useful in this rural area of France. The outdoor space was well kept and the pool was a strong feature in our visit. The house is set back from a main road but there was minimal noise disturbance from the road and the garden was fully enclosed ensuring our kids were safe when playing in the garden. Carol and Colin have thought of everything to ensure their guests enjoy their stay

Idyllic holiday home in the Loire

By Donna Tye on 12-Aug-2023

This holiday let is amazing! It was spotlessly clean, had comfortable beds, an extremely well equipped kitchen and is in a fantastic location. The private pool is the cherry on top of this beautiful home from home. It ticks all the boxes for a relaxing holiday but with lots of activities nearby including museums, zoos, kayaking and shopping. We would definitely recommend a holiday here.

Lovely holiday

By AC on 26-Aug-2023

We had a lovely holiday. The house is very clean and well equipped with everything needed. The owners are very thoughtful and easy to communicate with, we had no problems at all. The location of the house is good, with lots to see and do. The pool was great and we loved the garden.
