Lots and lots of room We went in the second week of September, but met unseasonably cool weather, so we spent almost no time lounging by the pool. That said, we had a great time. The pool heating was good, so some swims were had, and it is a very big pool. The shallow end slopes quite abruptly after about 2 metres, but that wasn\'t a problem. Big pluses: the grounds are very large, with lots of woodland which our 2-year-old grandchild enjoyed, and plenty of open space; the large living area in the house by the pool has lots of space too (perfect for a toddler); and there is lots of indoor space generally, including in the sitting room in the main house; very well equipped for outdoor living; lots of cutlery and plenty of glasses; a huge, efficient and modern fridge/freezer in the pool house kitchen; and the grounds are safely enclosed with a wire fence and gates to the road. We didn\'t try the air conditioning (not warm enough!). On the slightly negative side, the cooking arrangements are odd. There is an oven and hob in rather dark kitchen in the main house, but not too much in the way of cooking equipment: it could do with a proper large frying pan (the house sleeps 10, but you can\'t fry potatoes for 10); the kitchen in the pool house has rings and a microwave, but no oven; there are breadboards, but not much in the way of chopping boards. The bedroom in the poolhouse is more of a mezzanine...no door...and the decor overall, though of good quality, is rather dated. En Toutes Saisons were efficient agents, responding promptly to a problem with a cot (which need replacing). Lovely location. But it could do with a tenants\' book where people write about their favourite trips/shops/restaurants.
