Fantastic place, fantastic people, fantastic experience. Every detail and need thought of. Every eventuality catered for. Our time here has been way more than a holiday. Thank you for your expertise and warmth. Look forward to seeing you again

Thank you Tim and Razia for a restful and special family holiday. Artagnan has a great reputation but our experience surpassed all of our expectations – everything had been planned and thought of down to the minor details and this eliminated the stress and strains that go with with usual holidays. The location is quiet and peaceful and Henry & Emily loved playing with all the toys, feeding the chickens and visiting you next door. Thank you for your hospitality and generosity.

Amy, Henry, Biba (5) and Bertie (3) – August 2017

Artagnan lives up to and exceeds its reputation; we were told we would love it and we do. Thank you so much for a magical 10 days; you have created a unique holiday for families. The idyllic and tranquil setting is wonderfully peaceful and you have thought of everything to make it a totally stress free break, from all of your incredible hospitality, to the endless tractor rides, the animal feeding, the baking, the craft activities it has been a very special holiday. The children would happily stay forever (without us!).

We absolutely love our holidays at Artagnan and have just completed our fourth consecutive year. If you are looking for a quieter holiday (which we always are!) then this area of rural France is perfect; it is rural, simple and quiet and gives to your children the ability to have fun, outdoor adventures in a safe environment. Tim & Razia are an integral part of the holiday. The success of their secret recipe is that they want you all to have a lovely holiday – and they go out of their way to help you achieve this – from doing the weekly shop before you arrive, to making sure the house is looking perfect for each persons stay, to taking the children off most mornings for fun-filled hours of cooking, art, bike rides, swings, egg collecting, pond dipping ……. and to being on hand to help give advice on local things to do or to organise somewhere for supper or to go riding. For us it is the Swallows and Amazons type of holiday that we want for them – where they are learning about themselves and having experiences in the best way possible! Activities are all based appropriately for the children’s ages.

A huge thank you all – a magical week for which we are very grateful. So good for the soul to have some space from hectic London and to be looked after by you. Thank you for making Marciac happen and spoiling Alfie & Daisy with endless football, baking and drawing. They and we have loved it.

Clare, James, Oscar (10) and Ollie (6) – July 2017

We’ve been away for 3 years and wondered why we left it so long. This is a wonderful place, so tranquil and so full of joy. Our boys have had a fantastic week. We have all enjoyed Tim and Razia’s legendary welcome, hospitality and knowledge. From lazy hours in the pool to late afternoon cricket, to lovely fresh food this is the perfect spot. It is always a wrench to leave after settling in so easily to the relaxed pace of life. Thank you for everything. A bientot.

The Small family – June 2017

Our fourth and a wonderful week. Our 3 boys have adored their time in the barn and flourished with such wonderful care. Again attention to detail is exceptional and created a family holiday for all. Thank you team Coleman.

Another fantastic week seeing our grandsons delighting in all that is on offer here and flourish. Thank you team Coleman – a great team. Legends as far as we and our grandsons are concerned. Judi and Steve (grandparents to Rory, Harry & Fraser)

Another wonderful holiday – it just gets better and better. Thank you so much to the whole Coleman family for another fabulous fortnight and we are very sad to be going home. The boys absolutely loved their time with you from the tractor rides, delicious baking, swings, painting, stories and so much more. Once again its been a funpacked holiday for the boys and a lovely break. We are already looking forward to next year

Many thanks for a wonderful week at Artagnan. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the holiday has been relaxing as is possible with 3 young children in tow! Freddie and Alex will miss their mornings with you and all the tractors and dinosaurs here. They are already campaigning to come back next year…

Our second visit and just perfect! Thank you for a wonderful fortnight – the boys have loved their mornings with you playing, baking, feeding the animals and will miss you greatly. We’ve had a fab time exploring the area and restaurants – we are returning fully rested and relaxed. We are already looking forward to a return visit ..

Chris, Heidi, Rory, Harry and Fraser – June 2016

Another fantastic week – as usual everything has been truly wonderful – the house perfectly equipped for three little boys who had the time of their lives and we have managed to have a real rest. Thank you so much to the whole Coleman family for your first class hospitality.
