“Loved our stay - Great house and hosts”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Perfect large house for a friend's get away. The cottage had spacious rooms and a large garden with a good-sized swimming pool. Izzy and Steve were great hosts, helping whenever we had any issues (popping round with candles during a power outage during a storm) but were not intrusive at any point. They also had a friendly dog called Gus and run a cattery next door.

We had a great time, but cars are a must as the amenities in Montemboeuf (boulangerie + a shop) are pretty limited. There is plenty to do nearby though, though if you have good weather you can easily spend a few days under the parasol or on the deck chairs by the pool.

We were fortunate to arrive in time for the Imprévu festival (music, food, market etc). Other activities nearby I'd recommend are velorail (Gare de Confolens), Piegut market (every Wednesday and then have a coffee at the excellent Le Sens de la Terre) and the amazing but sombre Oradour-sur-Glane massacre (town untouched after being destroyed in WWII).

“Beautiful house and lovely location”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Great service, beautiful house, would be lovely for a bigger group. Only slight downside was that the pool isn't heated and was so cold we couldn't brave getting in it for the first half of the week. Other than that it was a fab holiday and the hosts were friendly and helpful and very accommodating.

“Three happy generations”
Reviewed 20 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Mr and Mrs Evans were so welcoming. What a lovely house. They have thought of every detail to make the stay a wonderful experience. The house is home-from-home, spacious and comfortable and still retaining its original character. It was great to get the family round the large dining table or equally to eat outside by the barbeque. The two toddlers played happily on the lawn. The bigger kids also taking full advantage of the lovely pool and garden. The kitchen was very well equipped, loads of pots and plates and bowls, brilliant for catering for many hungry mouths. We would definitely return here.

“Beautiful house in perfect location”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in La Maison Seronera for a week over the October half term. The house was absolutely perfect for us - 5 adults and 3 children (2-5 years).

The house itself has everything you would need and hope for - large lounge/dining area with a beautiful wood burner, a large family kitchen, 5 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms + 2 toilets. This is complimented by a large garden, with the pool at the end. It's such a lovely, private space and we utilised it fully - games of rounders and lounging by the pool.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather, early 20's everyday! There is so much to do locally, it's a great location to base yourself. The local village, Montemboeuf, has a boulangerie, spar, charcuterie and a little market once a week which you can walk to.

Izzy and Steve are lovely, welcoming and friendly hosts. They are there to help if you have any questions about the house or the local area. I would not hesitate to recommend La Maison Seronera.

“Brilliant property in beautiful location”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was absolutely perfect for our needs, a group of friends with a mix of adults and children.

The house is big enough that there's space to all eat together and relax inside or out as a big group but also to find little corners to read or find quiet alone. The pool was great and the kids absolutely loved it.

The local village is a very short walk and bread and croissants from the boulangerie were delicious. We also used the many leaflets and tips at the house to go on several lovely trips out.

The owners were very helpful and able to resolve any questions we had swiftly and with a smile.
