We had a lovely stay with Sylvain in this holiday home which is actually where he lives during the winter (he stays on the site in a caravan during the holiday season which means he is around a lot). He is very friendly and helpful and told us about lots of things to do which we would never had known otherwise which really added a lot to the holiday. It's in a good location, outside a nice village with good bakeries, restaurants etc and in its own grounds, with table tennis, hammocks etc.
The pool is great, and the house has two terraces, one at the front which gets a lot of shade, and a large one at the back which leads onto the large pool. Sylvain has built a nice area around the pool with a shelter underneath which are tables and chairs, sinks, bar stools, it's a nice place to hang around and the pool is large and clean. You share the pool with the people in the other apartments who stay on a different level but it's a big pool and because of the layout when they aren't using it it feel private for you as you are the only ones near it.
The house is fine, it's full of his furnishings which took us a bit of time to get used to, but we like his style so it wasn't a problem. The bedrooms are fine, there isn't really any air conditioning but it wasn't too hot even in August. The mezzanine was slept in by my daughters and they seemed OK, especially as there was a fan. The bathroom is OK as is the kitchen, nothing special but perfectly adequate. We pointed out a couple of things that could do with improvement, like more storage space on the mezzanine, and a lock on the bathroom door, and Sylvain was genuinely pleased that we had as he wanted to make improvements.
I would probably have given the villa three stars, but Sylvain really did make a lot of effort to make sure we had a great holiday - do buy the vegetable lasagne in the village that he recommends, it's delicious and not expensive, and do go to the places he recommends, especially the river where you can swim and the boat trip. And the pool really is lovely!
