“A Perfect Paradise”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Yet another visit to a perfect paradise. Each time we have visited we think nothing could possibly have improved, but each time we are pleasantly surprised - the owners certainly do not rest on their laurels, they continually look for ways to enhance your holiday experience & succeed without fail.
As other guests commented during our visit 'the website photo's do not do them justice', they were overwhelmed by the welcome, facilities & cleanliness of the whole site - it seems like our little secret holiday destination is getting out to others!
No comments can speak highly enough of the job the owners have done & continue to do to make this a most enjoyable holiday destination.
As other reviews have mentioned this is an ideal location for either relaxing away from it all or using as a base for visiting local tourist destinations such as the areas châteaux, local markets & numerous pretty towns.
We will definitely be returning.

“wonderful hosts and excellent accomodation”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed the last week in May with all my family. My son and his family had The Grange and my husband, daughter and I stayed in The Stable.Could not ask for a most wonderful peaceful week, as that is what was needed. Location was near a small town.
Our hosts, Derek and Angela were wonderful and kept the cottages and grounds beautiful, they gave us info on the local eateries -booking tables for us also, and French bank holiday details. Angela also let me keep the book I was reading, good supply of them and games..
All the cottages were very clean and fully equipted and loved the log-burners. The grandchildren and I used the pool every day.

Once again, thank you Derek & Angela for a lovey week, would definitly return.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I could use all the usual cliches such as wonderful, idyllic, perfect and they would all be true. But still wouldn't do this amazing handful of paradise justice. A total rural France experience with the perfect hosts too. I would definitely recommend it and would love to return!

It was the little things that made a difference, uk and French power points, local recommendations and help booking restaurants, on site hosts but not intrusive, a bottle on wine on arrival :) free on site washing facilities, crockery and mod cons, plus log fires in each property. Clean, inviting rooms and a heated pool. Wonderful time had by all.

“Amazing, Restful and relaxing and sheer luxury !!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

What a beautiful location, surrounded by sunflower fields. So pretty. The Gite's are all luxurious with excellent facilities. All the kitchen equipment is immaculate and of a very high quality, the beds are so comfortable and having been holidaying in Gite's since the 80's, that it such a bonus. If you are looking for a haven of tranquility, a restful and relaxing location you couldn’t do better than La Vieille Ferme.... highly recommended

“Idyllic!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The accommodation, amenities, hosts and location were everything that we could have hoped for. The perfect gite holiday and more. Many thanks to Angela and Derek for a superb holiday. We think that we booked for next year while enjoying an aperitif in the garden there says it all!
