“Absolutely Excellent”
Reviewed 11 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked La Mustrie to celebrate my 65th birthday and took our 4 children and partners and 5 grandkids....total 15.
From the very beginning David and Regine have been amazing to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the communication was second to none. Every little question answered and dealt with speedily.
The house is perfect in every way and the grounds immense. The swimming pool is a really good size and all of us enjoyed using it as much as possible.
There was a river at the bottom of the garden and the fishing was quite good. David had found out what was in there for me and Regine cleared the way to the bank as it was overgrown. It was the little touches that made it for us.
David and Regine brought a couple of bottles of fizz for us to have a drink for my birthday and David made me a personalized birthday card and all the adults had personalized photos of the area made for them also.
They were always on hand to help if needs be and Regine even took my eldest daughter with her one morning to see a new born foal. It made her day as she loves horses.

It was truly a lovely place with perfect hosts and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a large house to accommodate 15 or so people.

David and Regine thankyou so much for giving us all something to remember as a family for a long time to come.

Dave and Julia Lindley

“Fabulous French Country farmhouse in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A really charming and lovely French Country farmhouse in a gorgeous setting. All maintained to a high standard with an abundance of land and in a beautiful part of France. All the rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. Everything you require was there. A good sized swimming pool and the owners were very accommodating and provided all the information you needed on local places of interest. Our three children had an absolutely fantastic time. Would recommend it without hesitation and we definitely hope to be going back there in the future. Thank you for the wonderful memories we took away with us. We loved it.

“Real, rural France. Utterly charming”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We love France. We have loved France for a long time and we harbour ambitions to eventually relocate there in our latter years. We usually head for the beautiful Cote D'Azur. With it's Mediterranean lifestyle and climate, we always stay on one of the large camping resorts where our two young girls are entertained and free to explore a safe environment on their own. So it was with some trepidation that we made the decision to travel much further north, and much further in-land with the closest beach a good two and a half hours away, to stay in a secluded farm house surrounded by French countryside.
We were anxious that our children would become bored and irritable, and ultimately this would impact on our enjoyment.
We consoled ourselves that, after an awful lot of expense on a property renovation we completed ourselves last year, and a change in jobs, that ANY kind of holiday in France would be a bonus, and that it was "only this year" and we should just try to make the best of it. It's just a one off......

Well. Let me start with our hosts. David & Regine. David is an artist and photographer originally from London, and Regine, originally from Normandy, breeds horses and keeps a few in a paddock that makes up part of the properties extensive grounds. From the moment we booked, David has been fantastic at communicating all sorts of useful information to us. Everything from the best routes to take to get there, to local markets, activities for the children as well as restaurant and vineyard recommendations. Upon our arrival we were greeted warmly by both David & Regine, and of course "Topette" their adorable little fox terrier. They gave us a tour of the house, and made sure we didn't want for anything. One particular day, we'd been out to a local Market and came back to find that Regine had baked us a traditional "Tarte aux Fruits" as a surprise after my wife had made a comment about it being one of her favourite French desserts! As a way of thanking both of them for making our stay so special, we invited them both to join us for dinner one evening - a BBQ of course, and we sat outside, talking and laughing way past sunset with the familiarity of having spent an evening with close friends.
So. Onto the house;
I like to think that I'm not too easily pleased, and that I have a relatively high threshold of expectation when I travel. Therefore, I do not dispense these comments flippantly......
La Mustrie was BREATHTAKINGLY BEATIFUL. The upper floors have been fully refurbished and have a very new feel to them, whilst still retaining the exposed original timber beams ensuring it retains a rustic feel. The downstairs is incredibly rustic. Please don't interpret this as old and tatty. It's shabby chic at its most authentic. Beautiful antique French furniture, original floors, exposed timber beams and huge stone fireplaces with wood burners throughout. The exterior has a contained pebble gravel courtyard and there is a lovely clean private pool area too with views across the properties grounds towards the river. There's even a boules pitch!
We have fallen in love with this part of France, and this particular holiday has surpassed all expectations. We will definitely be coming to stay at La Mustrie again in the future. Thank you David & Regine for a lovely, memorable holiday.
