After a tiring drive we arrived at le Founil and La grange and were thrilled. Spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. La Grange is straight from the pages of Homes and Gardens! Perfect accomodation for more than one family,both homes have everything you could possibly need. Our children adored the large gardens and play equipment and the pool. If the weather is good,you really wont want to leave the houses! We have stayed in many gites and houses in France,and these were definitely the best equipped.
La Fournil was the perfect place for relaxing, lazing by the pool and cooking and eating long, lovely "family" meals (we were a group of 10 friends and a baby) both in and out doors. The property is beautifully finished, very well equipped and in a picturesque location close enough to walk to the local supermarket and town but still with a very rural feel. The property owner was very helpful and friendly and I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. I would go back right now if I could!
The listing description was very accurate regarding the whole house, it's layout, facilities and location. It was immaculate and very well maintained. We were greeted shortly after our arrival by the House keeper, Jeanette. She was very lovely and introduced us to what we needed to know with ease. Be aware that she doesn't seem to speak any English - luckily I speak French fairly fluently. That said, she is so lovely and I am sure even if you don't speak French, she would still be able to show you what you need to know.
I would highly recommend this property to other people. It is in absolutely stunning grounds with great outdoor play areas for the children and the house itself is beautiful.
Sue was very helpful when we booked the house and answered any questions we had.
We will be keeping the details of the house as we want to see if just the 3 of us can find someone else to share one of the houses with!
Thank you Sue - you have a beautiful house and it made our stay very enjoyable.

Great house for the nine of us. Cool in summer and hot outside. The pool was great; good size and well maintained. You share it with the other property but that wasnt a problem for us; my guess is most guests are families so our children played togehter. We sat outside most nights and drank lots of wine. The kitchen was well provided for, and the washing machine was used a lot as we had 4 girls with us, so they had to wear lots of different clothes! The local village is a 3 minute drive and, for such a small place, has a good supermarket, and excellent bakers and a 'locals' bar. You can see it all on Google Maps / Drive through. Oh yes, and as per all French villages it has a Pharmacy! Good Tennis courts too. The Chateau is very impressive and both the tourist board employees spoke excellent english and were able to help with good advice. After the village, the next, larger supermarket is about 20 minutes away. This is a rural area, but we found lots to do within 45 minute drives, including Canoeing, Go Ape type activities and beautiful villages. You can swim in the local rivers too which is good fun. We only went to 3 local restaurants but these were excellent. To get back home the other family with us left at 8am, went via Paris on what was meant to be the busiest (last) Saturday in August, and were on a ChannelTunnel Shuttle at 2.45. We went on country roads, up to Chartres fro lunch, via Rouen, and caught the 5pm Shuttle. A relatively easy place to get to in a day. All in all a great place, with excellent support from James Millard of JLM France who manages it. Thanks again.
