“Relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Lovely pool and great sunbathing area. We had a lovely relaxing holiday once my teenage daughters got used to sleeping in bunk beds again. Susan and Denis were very friendly and had loads of really useful local knowledge.
Was a shame restaurant in village had closed but we found other places to eat nearby and cooked for ourselves.
Just what we needed to reconnect as a family. Think Susan lending us the logo game and some DVDs really helped.

“Backyard Sweatbox”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The website presentation is unrealiable! Our stay commenced with the host's dog growling at us whilst being restrained by the host!! It went downhill very quickly from there! The "pool house" is situate in direct and immediate view of the owner's kitchen. There is an atmosphere of an absence of privacy. The "pool house" itself has the appearance on the website of a quaint, interesting lodging but in reality it is a poorly ventilated, oppressive low ceilinged structure furnished with cheap dated furniture. It was very warm when we stayed in late June, and there is no air-conditioning, no fans, and the widows are jammed so that you can only open a couple of them a few centimetres! This may be to avoid the influx of mosquitos? The lodgings are devoid of any necessary items one would expect, including soap to wash your hands. We were not advised of any ability to use the Wi-FI.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us and that your review is totally at odds with the excellent reviews from previous guests, also that your comments are so very different from those written by our (frequently returning) other guests.

“A superb, relaxing and chilled destination.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The pool house was exactly what we needed from our holiday, time spent in beautiful, relaxing surroundings.
Susan and Dennis were the perfect hosts and have created a wonderful place to spend time. From the stunning gardens and pristine pool to fully equipped and comfortable house we found everything we needed.
The village has just about everything you will need, take Susan's advice on the bread and croissants.
We hope to return in the future to this wonderful spot.

“Fantastic visit”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My partner and I had a fantastic visit to The Pool House at the end of June. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and equipped with everything we required. Directly outside there is a swimming pool set in the beautiful gardens which we spent many hours lazing beside. Brossac itself has all the daily amenities required, and the nearby lake with leisure facilities was a 10 minute walk away.
