Lovely big farmhouse in a quiet rural setting.
A great stay in Melleran, a spacious well equipped house. Nicely decorated rooms and lots of entertainment for children. The sound does travel significantly though. The area is quiet, not many nearby day trips, we found a river at Rejellsn which was fantastic. The pool is a good size and temperature albeit a little green. Overall a great stay.
Amazing property and location!!
The house and grounds are amazing and have everything you will ever need during your stay.
Every small detail has been thought of and provided.
The pool just tops everything off though, fabulous on those long hot summer days!!
Only one downside, that we didn’t book for 2 weeks!!
The farmhouse is lovely. It has everything needed for a great stay.
We had a fantastic time at La Ballerie. The house is really well equipped for a stay with lots of toys, games and outdoor stuff for kids. My nephews had a lovely time zooming in and out of the Wendy house! We also enjoyed hanging by the pool which was the perfect temperature for the hot weather we had.
Melleran itself is a very pretty village with a delicious bakery - great seedy hemp bread. We’d really recommend a stay here.
We had a great stay at the farmhouse. Really well equipped for families. The kids loved the heated pool and there's plenty of games for us all to join in with. Loads of space inside and the outside feels safe to leave kids run around. The fencing off of the pool was ideal for us because we had young children in our party.
Magical Half Term Holiday
We loved our time at La Ballerie with it’s fantastic games barn, which all of our party made use of, and especially the heated pool which enabled the children to make the most of swimming out of peak season.
The property was very well equipped and the rooms are all a very good size - in particular the kitchen was great for the chefs in our group – we had some wonderful BBQs sitting under the stars .
We visited Futuroscope which was a big hit with the kids. Also, we would recommend a trip to the beautiful town of Verteuil, having followed James Martin’s French Adventure on TV.
We look forward to returning another year.
Wonderful Relaxing Family Holiday
The property is a lovely old French farmhouse on the edge of the pretty village of Melleran. The pool is heated, the games barn well equipped and the bedrooms all good sizes. The property is well maintained and clean. I would highly recommend to a friend or relative.
