Reviews

« We had a lovely time here. I believe it is normally Chambre d'Hote (B&B) but for a few weeks in the summer they rent out the entire house, and we had four families here for a family celebration. The house is great. Lovely warm pool, table tennis table, huge grounds, lovely area, lots of culture nearby, nice local town with excellent market. Tim and Ally are lovely hosts. Tim is a great cook and Ally will make you feel at home. »  

« We booked for a week in late July to celebrate my husband's Big Birthday. There were 13 of us ranging from 4-80. We all loved the beautiful, spacious house, and the large grounds and lovely countryside. The pool is fabulous, and the children spent most of the time in it, when they weren't on the trampoline or playing table tennis! Ally and Tim were wonderfully friendly and helpful hosts, and cooked us a truly gourmet dinner one evening. There are lots of charming, historic villages in the area. This place is a gem. »  

« For the last 10 years, a whole group of friends and now growing amount of children have been going on holidays. We found Mas de la Rivière by chance by doing a search for 'a big house to rent in France'. Well the house is huge! We were so pleased and extremely surprised to see how much space they were when we arrived. The owners were away but we were greeted buy lovely girl where everything was and how everything worked.

The house is child friendly with a huge swimming pool (with a slide). A huge trampoline, climbing frame/slide/swings and table tennis. There is enough bikes for all the kids to ride around the gardens and woods around the property are vast. We were told to help ourselves to their fruit and vegetables. The kitchen was really well equipped with lots of child friendly stuff like cups and plates etc.

The rooms all had ensuite bathrooms and were extremely comfortable with good mattresses and fans in all the rooms. Mid week the lovely cleaners came and changed all the bedding and towels and cleaned all the bathrooms. The house has Wi-Fi throughout with meant that some of us could work if needed. And of course browse Facebook and Instagram. »
