Left on 05/02/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 2, 2014Stayed Mar 2014
We booked a family holiday for our son, daughter-in-law and our 2 grand children, and chose Soleil -Les Fleurs because of the 3.5 bathrooms and large accommodation.
We must say that this is one of the best cottages that we have ever stayed in during our 30 years holidaying in Europe.
The cottage has been furnished to a high standard, the mattress's were very comfortable and we slept well.
Jon and Sue, the hosts, were on hand if we needed them and offered some wonderful suggestions for visits. Also the meals we had from Sue and Jon were wonderful, and really made our holiday,being able to eat without the hassle of having to go out with small children.
We visited the wine caves of Bouvet Laudbry, just 15 minutes from the cottage and also a few of the Loire Chateux including Villandry, all of which were excellent.
We would recommend this accommodation very highly.
