Emily and Matt welcomed us onto the retreat with a lovely snack and a little tipple and from that point on I knew I'd landed in a good place. We were very much looked after, with excellent food (far better than I'd expected) and great company from our hosts, they couldn't do enough for us! The house was amazing, I loved the pool and the dining area and the lovely gardens but, importantly, the yoga room was just perfect for our yoga sessions (which were also fantastic). The atmosphere was welcoming and warm and there was plenty of opportunity to interact with the other guests and lots of space if I wanted some quiet time. I would highly recommend a holiday hosted by Emily and Matt!

Thanks so much,

This is the right place for your perfect holiday at Le Mazeau, France. Emily and Matt made our stay unforgettable. It felt like home. Everything was very well organised transfer, accommodation and the yoga and free time timetable. I can still remember my cosy and comfortable room… lovely flowers on the bedtable and a wonderful view of the woods. The food was so delicious, the swimming pool was clean and refreshing, the smell of lavender reminds me about the beautiful and calm evenings we spent as a group laughing together. After this holiday I've brought back home the feeling of bliss, that sense of floating in the clouds and light radiating from within me. I will definitely come back soon and I can highly recommend this magical place.

Thank you to Emily & Matt.

With love,

We had a fantastic stay and was truly a picturesque place to stay, the pool area was great, and a really nice place to unwind. We took the boat out on several occasions and ended up in some lovely local bars which was really unique to anywhere else we have stayed in the past. Many thanks to Matt for being on hand for local information, we will be returning! This was one of my favorite holidays in France and I have been a lot of times! Just a great place to unwind and the garden is fantastic for the children with so many trees to climb. Many a late evening in the great pool terrace covered area having barbecues and swims.

We had a great holiday and really enjoyed our time here, the weather was superb the heated pool made all the difference and tired out the children and adults no end! I would highly recommend this property and would like to thank Matt and Em for all their help and advice during our stay. We will definitely be back!

This was a family holiday centered on young children aged six months to six years. It proved a great success. The farmhouse is large and comfortable and most of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and sitting rooms are exactly as described and easily coped with all the demands we put upon it. The outside is wonderful. A great swimming pool; lovely outdoor barbecue and eating area which is shaded on hot evenings. There is a large orchard running down to the canal giving a lot of shade and plenty of play space. The immediate countryside is ideal for cycling and short visits. The beaches at La Rochelle and Ile de Re are less than an hour away. Shopping is not a problem. Matt and Emily were very responsive to our needs and were lovely to deal with. We are likely to return and would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for a similar holiday.
