A lovely spacious farmhouse, perfect for an extended family holiday

Rated 5 out of 5
12th August 2018

We have just returned from a lovely holiday at La Madone. The house and accommodation and the pool and garden were perfect for our extended family reunion. We were ten adults and five children under seven and we had a really happy week together. The pool for us was a highlight of the week. It is attractive, spacious, and well furnished with loungers. We were initially concerned about safety with so many small children but the pool is slightly out of sight and away from the rest of the garden and so going to it was ‘an event’, and it was easy to supervise and provided many hours of fun. We loved the pizza oven and enjoyed the number of outdoor tables for eating in different and lovely parts of the patios and garden! Nadège cooked for us for three of the evenings and that was a real treat. It’s not a cheap option but the cooking is excellent and Nadege provided delicious food and generous quantities. The house is much more extensive than the photos can show, and there are bedrooms off a number of different areas which allows for plenty of choice. We would love to return sometime!

We loved staying in this 16th century villa. So many bedrooms and all with en suite bathrooms. Pool was great on hot August afternoons. So many charming villages. Nadege is so pleasant and well informed, very sweet and helpful, perfect English.

Family group of 9 adults and two children. Lots of space and areas to relax. Kitchen well stocked with utensils. Pool area fantastic for afternoon swims after day out visiting local villages. Birthday lunch prepared by Nadege was delicious especially the amazing macaron chocolate mousse. Nadege was very welcoming and helpful. Villa was very clean.
