Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
The kids loved the pool, indoor and outdoor play areas, and so did the adults
when the kids went to bed! The indoor play area was great as the little
ones could play in a secure area whilst under the watch of the adults whilst
playing snooker etc. Teenagers made great use of the TV lounge too.
Hope to see you again. S P
Great location with lots to do.
Swimming pool was a bit hit and wonderful to find quiet corner somewhere to
relax. The gite was very spacious and had everything that we required.
Loved it. T L
