Great location for large family. Ample space in the nicely decorated house, large & very convenient swimming pool, and nice garden. We spent a week with 8 adults and 8 children in the house swimming, reading, playing badminton, petanque & soccer as they liked. The kitchen is very well equiped. WiFi is very weak and could not be improved during our stay. One of the airco-systems failed, and couldnt be repaired either during our stay, which was a bit of a 'bummer' as it was hot in the area. But if you can live without WiFi, and you are with a large group: definitely consider Bruno's house.

The setting of the property is outstanding - on a hill surrounded by fields and woodland. Close to Sarlat, a ten-minute drive, the location is well away from the road, so there is no traffic noise and so the experience is one of peace and quiet. We had access to the swimming pool, shared with one other rental property on the site, and there are some lovely walks across the fields and into the woodlands. Xavier the owner is very friendly and the arrangements for our stay were well cared for. The booking process itself was very smooth. The furnishings in the property are basic but the layout of the property inside is generous with a large reception room and dining table in the kitchen, plus tables to enjoy eating al fresco on both sides of the property so that one could have both breakfast and our evening meal in the sun! Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Matched description, very nice, quiet location. Nearby, couple of small cafes/restaurant. Short drive to town. Very friendly and helpful owners. Though we didn't speak any French and they didn't speak any English, they helped us find and rent bicycles and even drove us to the shop to pick up the bikes! Stayed for one week, riding bicycles around the region.

I spent two weeks in this house and loved my stay! The house is very comfortable and well-equipped, but the best of all is its location: it is directly on the water and only 15 minutes walk from downtown Saint Omer. It was very convenient, and very very quiet, and the possibility of going out with the boat and navigate the waterways freely is just fantastic. It's a beautiful place which was really worth discovering for me. The owners of the property were also extremely nice and welcoming.

We Thoroughly enjoyed our time staying in this lovely cottage! Monsieur Lauweriere is the perfect host. Monsieur Lauweriere and his family showed us around the property when we arrived and made sure we were happy before they left. I have my own boat so were able to use a dinghy which was there when ever we wanted which was Great and allowed us to explore the area. Monsieur Lauweriere gave us a vey pleasent tour of the waterways around Le Marais Audomarois. It is a beautiful area, much like the Norfolk Broads in the UK, but in my opinion much better! There is lots to do, St. Omer is a lovely place to visit, easy parking in the lower end of the town (free!). Lille is around an hour away and i would recommend going there too. The cottage is at the end of a lane right next to the waterways, which are full of wildlife, swans, ducks, cuckoo's herrons and much more. The cottage is laid out on two floors, the ground floor being tiled You enter through a lovely and light and airy kitchen with oven, hob, fridge freezer, coffee maker and all the plates etc and cutlery you'll need. The living room is equiped with an arm chair, sofa bed, tv with satellite and cable. The bathroom has a lovely shower, vanity unit and has a washing machine, there is a separate toilet. Upstairs via steep stairs there are two good sized bedrooms with view across fields to St. Omer. The beds are comfortable and provided with duvets pillows and extra blankets if needed, there is a tv in one of them. Whether you will be staying for a weekend break, or longer and visiting more of the area, this would be the perfect place to stay. Being only an hour away from the port of Calais and the Tunnel makes this a Great choice. The road from Callais is a breeze, i would recomend the Toll Road which only costs a couple of euros. Though we did go back to Calais on the non toll road which allows you to see more of the gorgeous french country side! Summing up, i would recommend, and indeed have done to friends and family, staying in this lovely cottage! Monsieur Lauweriere really was a great host, we shared a couple of beers in the garden there and although my french is lacking, as is his english we will be keeping in touch and will Definately be staying there again.

This is a lovely, peaceful retreat that exceeded expectations. Mr. Mattii was most accommodating, warm, and welcoming. The apartment was spotless (Cantina). The view from the property is stunning and it is wonderful to sit by the pool! I would definitely go back! I cannot think of anything that was lacking. The town of Montebenichi is most charming, too. The location of this property is very good for its proximity to the Chianti region, Siena, and the picking up the train to Florence (from nearby Bucine).

This text has been machine translated.The rental is faithful to its description: quiet, with a beautiful view of Mount Tauch on one side and the Castle of Aguilar on the other; the rooms are well thought out, the bathroom is equipped with a washing machine and all the necessary for cooking is present (plancha terrace).
The owners are very charming and attentive.
Just below the cottage is the municipal outdoor swimming pool (with very courteous staff); the center of the village is a few hundred meters and can be reached by several small paths very pleasant.
Tuchan is full of treasures of nature, whether in the middle of vineyards, at the bend of a stream or on the paths discovered, everything is soothing.
Obviously, we do not leave Tuchan without going to the cellar of Mont Tauch or without having gone to the different tradesmen of the village.
And for those who like to move, lots of activities and site visits are possible all around Tuchan and then there is the sea not far ...
A cocktail of beautiful and good surprises.
I highly recommend this cottage and will definitely go back!

This text has been machine translated.We had a wonderful week. Superb rental, nothing is missing. Very quiet, it allows you to relax with the sound of crickets, icing on the cake: 2 chairs that are always in the shade, a treat for idleness and reading. A big thank you to Mrs and Mrs T. for their welcome, their little attentions and for their advice on the places to visit and the restaurants around.

This text has been machine translated.We had a great time in this beautiful location surrounded by olive trees. We were two families of 4 people, each enjoyed their privacy, but we were all together on the large shaded terrace. We took full advantage of the huge pool hidden in this green property, dotted with fruit trees (the figs were delicious and plentiful, the garden beautifully maintained).
Shallow and ideal for children, the pool is beautiful: flush water, pretty blue tiles and beautiful night lighting.
All rooms are air conditioned (adjustable separately) and the kitchen is well equipped.
The owners live in a house on the same property and have found the right balance between warm welcome and discretion: Rosalia and Luciano are adorable and in love with their area. In perfect French, they can advise you on the visits to make. And then we were pampered with nice little touches ...
No hesitation: go for it!
