“A lovely place to come home to”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Abbey Cottage. The cottage is very cosy, excellently equipped and close to many interesting sights. An ideal place to spend a relaxed holiday.

“What a Little Gem!”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful holiday at Abbeye Cottage which is equipped to a very high standard, and we felt very at home. Lucy was very helpful in the run up to our holiday, providing lots of local information and even arranged an appointment at the local vet for our dogs to have their passports sorted for our return to England.

Lucy left us a lovely welcome pack which included home made scones, bread, jam etc, together with a bottle of fizz chilling in the fridge! She even left biscuits for the dogs and had a bowl of water waiting for them.

The cottage and garden are beautiful and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub at night.

The village is very quaint and there's a good selection of places to eat and drink, and is also ideally located for visiting the surrounding area.

We will definitely return, but next time it will be for longer than a week!

“Lovely French cottage in great location”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Great location in a small French medieval village but with close access to numerous sights and amenities. The cottage itself has everything you need in the way of facilities including wi-fi and jacuzzi in the sun trap garden. Its location is ideal with shops/bars within a few metres distance.
Lastly the owners are lovely and happy to provide support and advice for your stay should you need it.
Thoroughly recommend.
