Nous avons énormément apprécié les extérieurs de votre maison (piscine, repas sous le chêne, balançoire, barbecue...) et cet environnement très calme.
Corine from Willadingen,
Das Ferienhaus Mas dArtillou ist es ein wunderschönes Ferienhaus, indem man sich Jahre zurückversetzt fühlt, ohne auf den Komfort der heutigen Zeit zu verzichten.
Hans from Tilburg,
Als eerste bedankt dat we gebruik hebben mogen maken van jullie fantastische plek in Frankrijk, het was er heerlijk.
We zijn keurig ontvangen (na een wat hectische heenrit) en kwamen aan op een voor in onze ogen paradijsje op aarde. Vriendelijke ontvangst en een zeer romantische en prachtige omgeving. Helaas was het zwembad nog niet beschikbaar, maar anderzijds, gezien onze bezigheden, hadden we daar toch geen tijd voor gehad.
Een prachtig huis in dito omgeving, rust, warmte en noem maar op. Prima verzorgd, goed ingedeeld en netjes onderhouden. We kijken er naar uit om in de toekomst weer gebruik te mogen maken van deze plek. Het is ons meer dan goed bevallen.
Gibson from James,
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the house. You have done a lovely job of creating a beautiful home.
I particularly valued the swimming pool and the proper fence around it which gave us great confidence with the children. Both families had a wonderful week and i hope to visit the house again soon!
Platteau from Rollegem,
We hadden het zeer fijn in Mas de L’Artillou.
Zeer mooi huis, alles voorhanden met als ‘top of the bill’ het fantastisch zwembad met supermooi zicht.
We genoten van de rust.
We overwegen zeker om nog eens terug te gaan.
