1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The tranquillity of the cabin. The sense of peace that we achieved very soon after arriving.

Set aside some time to explore some of the beautiful towns and countryside around the area. Make sure to pick up lots of cheese at the weekly market in Piegut-Pluviers. Eat at Sens de la Terre in Piegut. Bring lots of books. Learn how to build a fire.

The ecological nature of the cabin was a huge incentive for us to book this holiday and it exceeded expectations.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We cannot recommend it highly enough. We will definitely be back.

review 4 May 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Having a picnic with my wife on the raft in the lake by our cabin and fishing in the boat afterwards and catching two carp!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Having a car was handy to visit a few local places, we travelled at the end of April and not much was open as the season doesn't properly start until the end of May. So if you do go out of season it's best to get some food in to cook at the lodge for your meals. The tandem was great to use and the roads were good, if not a bit hilly in places! Communication is key!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The few local businesses that were open when we were there should of benefited them as we did have a couple of meals at local restaurants and used a local supermarket to buy in some goods. We used the bike more than the car so that would of been good for the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was brilliant from start to finish, great communication from the owners of the lodge and such friendly and helpful people on arrival and throughout the stay. We would recommend this holiday to anybody who would like a quiet and relaxing stay and enjoy the use of the Eco-cabin.
