"Just the nicest house we've 'borrowed' in 20 years! Nothing has been
forgotten. We've loved every minute, and the area was stunning"
"We had the most wonderful time here in this lovely house. We leave
reluctantly, and hope some day to return"
"Just a note to say what a wonderful place Au Chicot is. We had lovely
weather, and the position of the house is stunning"
"We've very much enjoyed staying in this lovely house. The tranquillity and
fabulous views (unsurpassed by any other house we've stayed at) have been a
special bonus in providing a welcome break from frantic London life. We are very
sad to be leaving, and hope to be back"
"We had a wonderful holiday. The house was great, plenty of room for us all
and everything provided that we could possibly need. Its location was perfect
and the peace and quiet very much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in
recommending your lovely house to friends and family, and would definitely like
to return one day"
"Au Chicot is the perfect getaway - a lovely place, and it's quite obvious
that you've gone to a lot of trouble to furnish it very well. One of the
important areas, so often not properly equipped, is the kitchen. This usually
results in ones holiday diet having to be modified around sub-standard cookers
and (un)available utensils. Happily this is not the case at Au Chicot!"
"Thanks for providing an absolutely wonderful place for us to have our
holiday. We all had a great time, and loved both the house and the surrounding
area (especially the views). It was so refreshing to go somewhere still
un-blighted by tourism, and really feel part of the French countryside. I've
never been to a house so well catered for. Everything we needed was there, which
I think is amazing. I hope Chicot continues to delight its visitors the way it
"A lovely week - what a fabulous house, the situation couldn't be prettier or
more peaceful and the interior is just stunning. The kitchen's been a huge hit -
lots of wonderful meals have been prepared here and greatly enjoyed by all of
us. Our baby Louisa slept through for the first time in 9 months, and cut her
"Great wildlife: 64 lizards, 2 horse flies, 5 hornets, 2 ENORMOUS beetles, 4
bees, 2 deers, 1 woodpecker, 2 eagles, 1 buzzard, 2 humming bird hawk moths, 1
bird with no name, 1 frog, 1 owl and a stray dog! (Please don't mistake us for a
load of bleeping ornathologists)"
"This is truly a magical place and believe it or not but I can find
nothing wrong. It has an air of peace and happiness and though
only a short time it has been such a wonderful tonic"
"What a great time, in a beautiful part of France! We had Armagnac
galore, a highlight being the personalised tour of Busca Maniban by
Madame herself. We made a trip to St Jean de Luz and plenty of shorter
ones to all the beautiful villages; enjoyed long evenings around the
barbecue and shorter jogs around the countryside. A great time indeed!"
"A perfect week in a perfect place!"
"We've been lucky enough to spend several weeks and have had a lovely
relaxing time. We have stayed in many gites over the last 20 or so
years, but none has come close to this one; the views are spectacular,
and the beds are very comfortable . Many thanks for the loan of
your beautiful home"
