We travelled from Brittagne on a very busy Saturday in August. The journey was fine, except our arrival time kept changing. Jeannine could not have been more understanding, and relieved all pressure by telling us that any time was fine for her, and that we must enjoy the journey.
Her house, just outside Pons, is really special. You step back in time, and enjoy the spacious grandeur of a comfortable family home.
The rooms and hallways are big and airy, with giant windows. The garden (which is accessed down old stone steps from the terrace - small children, take care!) is about a hectare with lots of places to hide! There is no swimming pool at the house, but the local pool in Pons, 5 minutes away is brilliant, for all ages. We used it most days.
I see that some people have commented on the small kitchen. Well yes, the kitchen is comparatively small, but it adjoins a great big dining area with a long table for all food preparation needs.
This lovely house really feels like a proper family home. There is masses of space to hang clothes and store everything, in huge antique wardrobes. It is a place in which to enjoy your time together, and the location (a few minutes drive from Pons, and half an hour from the beach) makes excursions simple.
Jeannine was able to help us with any questions, and did so with care and kindness. Just lovely.
We will be returning.
