“Maison Blanche was a wonderful haven where we enjoyed experiencing all that rural France has to offer.”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday staying in the very comfortable Maison Blanche. The house feels like a home from home, very well equipped and has a beautiful outside space where we relaxed in the mornings and evenings. The beds are extremely comfortable and we all slept very well - we are now very relaxed after our stay.

We loved the marché nocturne held in the village - a night of great local food and wine and dancing we were made very welcome by our village hosts.

“Beatifully presented, well-equipped holiday home in lovely area with much to see and do.”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The property was better than described and equipped with all you would need.
The secluded garden was peaceful and great for barbecues.
Many great places to visit within an hour including the coast, many vineyards/chateaus.
Highly recommended.

“Home from home - we love Maison Blanc more every time”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 for a stay in May 2013

We've visited Maison Blanc three times now and every trip is a delight. From the minute we walk through the door, the stresses of everyday life ebb away... and within 24 hours, we're waking to the sound of church bells, buying croissants from the boulangerie across the street and spending long evenings drinking wine in the beautiful courtyward garden! It's home away from home in rural France - with every kind of comfy luxury you'd wish for.

The house is beautifully decorated and maintained. The walls are stylish Farrow and Ball tones, with understated artworks, squishy sofas and designer bed linen. There's Molton Brown toilettries in every bathroom - in short, staying at the house feels like a treat.

The kitchen is well stocked too. There's always a bottle of wine waiting in the fridge, and basic ingredients in the cupboards. We once arrived at 9pm in the middle of a storm and we didn't go hungry!

On our last visit we took our 6 month old son and it was perfect for our first family holiday. In addition to being equipped with cot, high chair and paddling pool, it was very safe for him to crawl around and the beach nearby was ideal for sandcastles and swimming!

If you're looking for a wild city break, this is not for you (!) but if you want authentic French living in gorgeous surrounds (and plenty of day trips to interesting places nearby) then its perfect!

“Real rural France”
Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in September 2012

This is a wonderfully restored house in a lovely rural village off the tourist trail. Maison Blanche is very comfortable, great kitchen, homely living room and fantastic bedrooms with en-suite facilities. And your own private walled courtyard.

We have stayed here twice now and plan to return again soon.

Highly recommended.
