In één woord, geweldig!
We hebben het prima naar ons zin gehad in het vakantiehuis le sequoia Geant! Het is erg ruim en comfortabel. Het huis ligt afgelegen maar dichtbij een dorpje. Het uitzicht is er fantastisch, we hebben genoten van de natuur en de dieren die in het landschap voorbij gingen (zwijntjes, vosjes, herten). Wij zouden het als jong gezin een meerwaarde vinden als er een zwembadje zou zijn voor de kinderen om in te spelen met het warme weer.
Wij hebben een heel prettig verblijf gehad!
Het huis overtrof onze verwachtingen. Hartelijk ontvangst. Vlotte regeling.
Het overdekte terras is echt uiterst aangenaam: biedt koelte als het heet is, zorgt ervoor dat je ook bij regenweer buiten kan zitten en van het uitzicht genieten.
Er zijn genoeg verschillende plaatsjes in de zon of de schaduw, in de wind of uit de wind: voor elk wat wils!
Wat het verblijf zo mogelijk nog aangenamer zou maken, is dat er een kinderstoel en babybedje zou aanwezig zijn.
Dit zou veel plaats in de auto besparen en de tafelmomenten aangenamer maken.
