The Twin Room has 2 single beds. Both rooms have dressing tables, wardrobes, bedside cabinets, hairdryers and USB Charging Ports. Bathroom with shower, sink over a vanity unit, toilet and heated towel rail. All other rooms have radiators. Private, enclosed garden with Patio, BBQ and parking facilities.

Holiday prices are per week, Saturday to Saturday and includes all linen, crisp cotton sheets, fluffy hand and bath towels, gas for cooking, water for basic domestic use and exclusive use of the pool! We are delighted to welcome families with children, but regret we cannot accept animals. We supply a welcome pack to all our guests of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a bottle of local French wine, just in case you arrive late in the day. Please note that whilst we have a minimum stay of 7 nights during peak season, we do take reservations for one night only from September to May. Some of our guests' comments: 'Your photos on the internet don't do Hirondelle Farm justice. The photos show a lovely cottage, but we arrived to find a beautiful home, lovingly restored by Doreen & Dave. We have had a very comfortable stay, and the children had a wonderful time in the garden and pool. Thank you for all the little touches: nice wine in the fridge, flowers on the table, plus all the books CDs and DVDs.' 'Our first ever stay in a gite, and we have a feeling this one has set a very high standard for future gite holidays. We loved the Stable, cosy and well equipped. It was everything we hoped for.' 'Absolutely superb!! We have had the most peaceful holiday yet done so much!! Doreen & Dave - you have the perfect holiday home. We appreciated all your knowledge and kindness, your choice of days out was first class!'   The second is a twin bedded room. Bedside cabinets, dressing tables and hanging space in both bedrooms.   Most electrical points are UK so no need to bring an adaptor. More

Thanks again Sam for a great review! Dave made those comfy recliners, so you'd better get your order in! Pity about Sarah's ear infection, hope it's all OK now. Looking forward to seeing you next year, how much will those girls have grown by then?
