We are French and We spent 2 weeks dreaming in this house with 9 people including 2 children.
The house corresponds to the description with 6 rooms, 2 shower rooms and 1 big bathroom with shower. The living room is spacious with a large kitchen. The swimming pool is very nice.
The towels and bed linen are provided and it's very appreciable.
We ordered our bread at the camping next door, owners are very sympatiques.
Ray was very available to answer my questions and very accomodating.
Cathy and Mike who run the house on site, are very available and charming. They intervened very quickly during a problem with the septic tank.
It is a very touristic region, with bastides, castles to visit; Canoe, ; Buy local products at the nearby farm ...
The car is essential because the house is isolated.
I recommend this destination and location.
Thank you Jocelyne for your positive review. It was a pleasure having you stay at Gardeleau. We hope you come back next year and recommend Gardeleau to your friends. Best regards Ray Roberts
The Barn holiday home
Date should read 6-Aug-2011, and previous to that 21-Aug-2010. Not available in 2012
This summer 2013 will be the 3rd year that our large family will rent The Barn in Castillonnes, needless to say we love it there. It is a beautiful and peaceful countryside location with confortable spacious rooms, and three very good bathrooms. The house is clean, well decorated and maintained.
The previous occasions we stayed we found the swimming pool fantastic, the kids enjoyed it so much they used it from morning till evening when were not doing some activity or another. We also made use of the barbecue quite a bit. While we were there we did quite a lot of cannoning, cycling, walking and chilling by the pool. There were two British ladies who lived nearby that looked after the house, and we found them very helpful and friendly.
We have been going to that part of France for the past 10 years for our summer holidays, and we really enjoy the cafes, markets, delightful little restaurants, cannoning, art galleries, caves with prehistorical paintings, Chateaus, beautiful green scenery and the relaxing pace of life, all of that with great weather.
Thanks for your kind comments and I hope you enjoy your holiday this year in the newly refurbished house.
Maison très agréable à vivre
Maison très agréable à vivre avec de multiples possibilités de terrasses, aménagée avec goût et pratique pour familles nombreuses avec 2 frigo et un très grand four mais qui nécessite quelques réparations (poignées porte à recoller, fenêtres fermant mal...)
À recommander toutefois
Thank you Magali for your positive review. We will fix the oven! Please recommend Gardeleau to your friends and we hope you come back next year.
