We rented this property with three other families and each of us were impressed by the cleanliness and the appointments throughout the villa. We visited during France’s worst heatwave on record and yet the rooms remained cool enough for all to sleep and relax. We appreciated the large selection of movies, and the wealth of British TV afforded the cable service that were included. The kitchen was spacious enough for “group” cooking, and the children of the group enjoyed the pool, the ping pong table, and the many games supplied by the villa.
Our checkin and checkout wer extraordinarily straightforward and the two minor issues we encountered were addressed immediately via a simple text message (and a local and super helpful house attendant!!). Both issues were user error!!
We recommend this villa without qualification!
We had an amazing week long stay at Pondaurat. The house was spacious, cozy, homely and fully accessorized, a truly original French countryside mansion. The surroundings were event better - there are actually an active old church and an operating winery on the premises, not to mention the adjacent fields, pastures, ponds and forests. Pondaurat itself sits in the middle of a beautiful, endless green region. Martine and Antoine made every effort to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. This is really a rare find.
