La Chouette is beautifully renovated and very comfortable. We were very impressed with how well equipped it is and the Welcome Pack was fantastic.
We loved being out in the countryside but was close enough to get to fantastic beaches within 40 minutes. It was perfect for us as a family with younger children with the enclosed garden and games provided and we made good use of the BBQ and patio furniture The highlight of the holiday for the kids was riding Circo who now has two major fans! Helen Fenwick & family August 2011
