“Another Awesome Holiday - Lac de Maison keeps getting better and better”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A truly wonderful cluster of gites. Perfect for kids of all ages. The owners keep investing in the property with new things added every year. Our kids loved the new treehouse. We have spent the last 5 summers in France and have stayed at over a dozen different family / kid focused gites. Lac de Maison is the best of them by a country mile. Would highly recommend, particulary in the off-season.

“Perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just back from a lovely fortnight's break at Anna & Simon's place and, like an earlier writer, was so impressed that I'm writing my first review. We stayed in Rose, which is the middle of the the 3 cottages and was very well furnished and equipped. Straight away there is a really welcoming feeling and you are struck by how well all the details have been thought through - our girls have never been so well catered for ! Our girls are 3 and 5 and made friends with the other residents - human and animal - quickly, so my wife and I had a great break in the knowledge that they were having a great, safe time without us trailing around behind them ! For me personally I like to be out and about a lot and was worried that there might not be enough for me to do in the area, but there definitely was - churches with medieval frescos, ancient barrows, baptistries, abbies, canals to boat on, etc. I also did lovely runs and cycles on the empty roads, scaring the butterflies and deer. Order the food, it's lovely - but only if you're prepared to run or cycle straight after, otherwise you may not fit back into your work suit !

“A gem set in a peaceful part of France.”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

If a fully equipped, family friendly and peaceful holiday in France is what you are looking for then look no further than Lac du Maison.

Lac du Maison is tucked away amongst the fields of France and yet is close enough to local attractions and conveniences for both peace and quiet and things to do. It has enough space for everyone to enjoy the facilities, including the pool and the many other child (and adult) friendly features. We took walks and cycle rides in the countryside, picked and ate fresh cherries from the trees, swam every day, went to local markets and restaurants and generally had a great time. Simon and Anna, the owners, are always around if you need them and are always happy to help and even cook excellent dishes for you if you wish. The range of animals for the children to interact with is a nice touch, including ponies and a lovely horse called Trigger/Tempest/Typhoon (I can't remember).

We'll be going back next year if we can get a booking as it always seems to be full, which is not surprising!

“An amazing first family holiday!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a totally amazing first holiday with our 10 month old Twins at Lac de Maison. The Gites are so well equipped for babies, toddlers and children, that we were able to travel so lightly that we could see out the back window of our car for the first time ever! I didn’t expect our first holiday with small babies to be relaxing but it was – there was so much to keep the small ones occupied that they were content every day, Anna and Simon provided us with the most amazing meals that we felt we were staying in a five star hotel and the gorgeous countryside really helped us feel like we had got away from it all.

The babies particularly enjoyed splashing in the pool and rolling around in the ball pit in the play barn, their Daddy enjoyed monopolising the trampolines and riding the bikes, and I just enjoyed drinking wine and watching the smiling faces! There was also loads to do in the area, from gentle bike rides, to Monkey Valley (I have to admit I think I enjoyed it even more than the babies!), to gorgeous lake beaches.

Anna and Simon were the most accommodating hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. When we arrived they had set the gite up with everything we needed and it was like arriving home! The gites are thoughtfully arranged to that each one has its own space and privacy allowing some much needed family time together, but you are near the communal facilities so if you want company or playmates you can have it! We will most certainly be returning.

Thank you Anna and Simon – you made our holiday truly wonderful!

“Fun for all the family”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had such a brilliant holiday at Lac de Maison I feel compelled to write my first trip advisor review! Trying to find something that provides relaxation for adults, entertainment for a 4 year old, and all the equipment we need for a 10 month old is not easy, but Anna and Simon achieve all of that and throw in top tier hosting skills on top. They really make the place - it is like staying with friends (friends who give you lots of space and cook for you whenever you want!!). We stated in Rose Cottage. It is very well equipped and spotlessly clean, with plenty of space for us all. Plenty to do within a short drive, although you may find it hard to get everyone away from the gite/pool/garden/playbarn... We loved it!
