‘Excellent sejour – un tres bon weekend dans une maison tres agreable dans un endroit tres calme. Cerise sur le gateau, le beaux temps nous a permis de profiter de la piscine.‘ Nadine (Mai 2018)

‘We spent a very happy Easter time in this lovely house. There was plenty of space for the eight of us and we loved the character of the house with all its features, historic details and antique furniture. Thank you for having us to stay!‘ Ines (March 2018)

‘Maison tres agreable et comfortable. La maison est tres bien situee pour visiter de merveilleux endroits, tout proches. Nous sommes enchantes!‘ Pascaline (Avril 2018)

‘We loved both La Vieille Maison and La Maison Bleue! For a larger gathering of family and friends they worked perfectly, giving space and options for sitting and dining to different groups during the week. Wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the personal family feel of both houses, filled with antiques and masses of books! The houses are well looked after by Hubert and his team. Very clean and well equipped. The pool was perfect. We can't wait to come back!' The Harris family (2016)

'We have just returned from a delightful holiday in La Maison Bleue. If you are looking for peace and tranquility and a true get away from it all holiday, look no further. Wonderfully French, rural location, comfortable, homely, well equipped accommodation. Well situated for lovely days out for the whole family.' Jackie (2016)

'We are back home, with our great experiences and memories of Coutarnoux. Your place was ideal location for exploring the French countryside. We can see how you were enticed to live there. Your houses are warm and liveable. We enjoyed our two week stay immensely! Many thanks.' Paul (Australia) 2015

We are having a lovely time. Everyone very impressed with the house, the new additions since we were all here last and the number of books. The cherries are in full ripeness and now life is a bowl of... Tonight is our music evening. I wish you could see us all in Le Grand Salon with music, singing and recitations. The perfect space! Roger (Spain) 2015

"We have arrived and everything is in fine order. The houses and grounds are wonderful and could not be better for us. We are busy preparing dinner and listening to Mozart. What an idyllic place! Thank you for sharing it with us; also for the many personal touches and welcoming messages.' Peter and Caroline (2014)

'This comes a little late in the day but I wanted to write and thank you for our stay at La Vieille Maison this August. We thought the house was brilliantly equipped, the grounds were beautiful and the children loved reading all the new stories that we found on your book shelves. After having originally thought we would have a television-free trip we were also grateful to have access to the BBC so that we could watch the Olympics. We hope to be able to visit again in the future.' (2012)

"We loved La Vieille Maison. The house has a lovely feel to it and the garden is superb. We felt very much at home and enjoyed spending time in there. Coutarnoux is also a very attractive village with that quintessential French atmosphere intact.’

‘We had a wonderful time. You have done the house so nicely, the furnishing, the plates, the glasses, the books, the videos, the cds - it all feels like a home and not some money-making let, which is what we have occasionally experienced. The area is also terrific. We loved the pool by the way. Oh, and we had a truly delicious meal at the Pot D'Etain. We may come again!’

‘Thank you for letting us spend a week in your wonderful Maison Bleue! While the two boys spent their time in the pool and my husband was reading one of the hundreds of books I had plenty of time for my paintings.’

‘We are enjoying our visit so much. We are finding the house very comfortable – and the pool is divine in this heat. But we have found time to do some wine tasting, sight-seeing (Montreal was stunning). Three of us walked for 16 km in the Morvan. The week is going too fast.’

‘We just returned from our weekend at La Vieille Maison and just wanted to say a big thank you for letting us take the house for the weekend. It was my birthday yesterday so it really couldn’t have been more perfect. We could tell the house is loved and looked after as we wanted for nothing, what a beautiful place! Again, thank you for such a wonderful stay.’

‘We had a really great time at Le Verger. Thank you so much for letting us use it. What we loved most was that is felt like your home rather than a holiday house!’

‘We had a lovely time and it is very hard sitting in my office now, thinking that I was living the life in Burgundy a week ago...I am sure we will be back at some point...the house, village and surrounding countryside is everything I love about France. Thanks!’

'We are back home, with our great experiences and memories of Coutarnoux, your place was ideal location for exploring the French countryside.'

'We had a wonderful week in your house. The kids loved the swimming pool and the garden looked very pretty. It's a nice comfortable house. In dutch we say "gezellig" but that's hard to translate.  Thank you for a great week!'

'We have had a wonderful last evening. We are very sad to leave. We have had a truly peaceful and enjoyable time at your house. Thank you.We cannot think of a better place at which we have stayed before.'

'It was absolutely delightful. Not often do you stay somewhere that is even nicer than it looks on the internet! We were really lucky with the weather and it was altogether a great trip.'
