We went with our family and took four 2 bedroom cottages. The cottages are pretty and each one has its own little garden/terrace. Well equipped and comfortable. We had been warned that it can be quite hot in the cottages at night, so we took some electric fans with us. It would be advisable for the management to either install...

Just returned from a week at this resort using our Club La Costa points. Lovely 2 bedroom chalet within 1 minute walk from the beaches by the lake. The resort is quiet and ideal for families. We did take our 18 year old, however it is perhaps too quiet for this age group. The town of Parentis is about half...

We had a three bedroom apartment. Only one toilet but one ensuite and one bathroom. Not really big enough for six persons. Only one three seater in sitting room with two stools and chairs at dining table. No drawers in kitchen area so cutlery had to be kept in tidy on top of cupboard. Swimming area very good with bar...

A beautiful resort in a beautiful setting. The rooms are perfect, we stayed in a 3bed apartment on 1st floor which was perfect apart from a very hard bed & no oven. The pool area is very nice & is only spoiled by the costs of the cafe, everything is double the cost of anywhere else in France (even the...

We arrived with quite a lot of France it would seem, judging by the traffic, on the Saturday. Just my husband and I on our first holiday alone together in 21 years! This suited us perfectly. The accommodation was lovely. We stayed in chalet 49 which is for 4 people and the clever design means you don't feel overlooked even...

Stayed here in one of the apartments for a week in June. Quiet season. Complex was only sparsely populated which suited us and was conducive to a nice relaxed week. We have two small boys (3 and a half and 1). So activities, etc (as with holiday village next door) not as critical. Bar/pizza restaurant in the complex only opened...

We arrived before the French Holiday Season had started the welcome was warm and the accommodation clean but the vegetation still needed trimming and up keeping! The Pools were warm but it was a shame that the bar was closed. The resort was quiet, if a little empty. The surrounding area was picturesque with a lovely beach, exercise walks and...

We were in chalet 29 which was overlooked by about 10 other chalets, furniture was basic and a lot of the veneers were lifting. I personally would only rate this as a 2 star resort not 4 but this may reflect the time of year we went. Very quiet and a lot of restaurants were closed. I went with club...

Really good place to stay. Wood cabins were great, with terrace overlooking the view to the lake. Good on site pools both indoor and out door plus both pools heated. Village very close 5 mins by car 30 mins leisurely walk and all necessary shopping in village along with a few nice restaurants.

Clean, comfortable and well equipped. However in a 3 bedroom property only one wardrobe was useable as one had cleaning materials in it and the other had a bedside table right up against it. Fabulous and beautiful location with lots of trees (pines in particular) and private access onto the lake where you can learn to sail in season and...
