What Makes Beaufleury A Great Rental:
The space works really well for one family possibly with grandparents too.
Or two families with younger children (you have a children's bedroom with two sets of bunk beds, plus a fenced & heated pool in an enclosed garden).
Anything To Watch Out For:
The owners live here 10 months of the year and they move out during the summer and stay in the small barn on the grounds (separately accessed). Beaufleury is exclusively for guests private use - the house, the pool and the gardens. Julie is on hand if you need her; experience shows she's a very useful font of local knowledge whilst her husband Pete is very handy in case there's any maintenance help needed during guests' stay. They're a small family of 3 plus their pet dogs and cats.
Families only please. Max. 6 adults and the bunk bedroom is for children only.
Younger kids need to take care on the spiral staircase.
The two ensuites are semi-open to the bedroom.
Why St Jean de Marsacq:
Quiet village with pretty square - typical of the relaxing south west. There's a very handy boulangerie for your morning essentials and a village restaurant too. This is all about staying in a character French property in a private, quiet location but within easy reach of the fabulous beaches and attractions in this highly distinctive corner of south west France.
