Another truly wonderful fortnight. We have all properly relaxed, the kids have loved every minute of their time with Tim and Razia and we are in awe of all the fun games you play with them. Thanks for your hospitality, with love from all of us xxx

Thank you for yet another lovely holiday. We’ve all had the loveliest time. The children have loved all the fab activities – all thought out and appealing to each one. Thank you for being such attentive hosts. It’s been another really restful holiday – hard to say with 3 children but it has been that restful. We hope to come back next summer.

Cissy, Andy, Miri & Sofia (both 6) & Magnus (3) – August 2022

What a wonderful holiday. Thank you so much for looking after us all so well. The house, the setting, all the recommendations and of course the brilliant childcare each morning .. it is all so considered and perfect. We are all so sad to leave and hope to return x

Another lovely holiday at Artagnan. It was restful which I didn’t think was possible with three children of five and under. Tim and Razia were so helpful, the children adored spending time with them. The pool and house were so lovely, so well equipped, we loved it and will be back next year- thank you for such a restful break

What a perfect place for a real holiday for young and old. Granny had a truly memorable 75th birthday thanks to Razia and the sous-chefs. Everything in the house is perfectly chosen and we all appreciated the beautifully thought out care for the young folk, plus the opportunity for Townies to meet chickens, sheep & fish and tractors. Thank you

Lawford family – August 2021

We have recently returned home from a simply superb two week stay at Artagnan in late August. 

 The house is spacious and extremely well equipped – there appears to be (often two of) everything parents will need while away with the kids and there are plenty of toys, games, books and ride-ons for the little ones as well as the private pool and play park.  

The owners Tim and Razia were incredibly helpful and thoughtful during our stay and really went above and beyond to ensure our holiday was as enjoyable, comfortable and stress-free as possible. Our children (9 and 5) looked forward to spending time with them most days, when they would look after the animals, play games, spot insects and other wildlife, or cook up something tasty in the kitchen.  We also made the most of the two local chefs (one targeted at vegetarians and the other providing more traditional French cuisine) who delivered to the house.  The food was delicious and this took the hassle out of meal times.  

My wife said it was the most relaxing holiday she has ever had and we are already talking about returning.  I could not recommend Artagnan enough to anyone with a young family, who is looking for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.

Top tip – look out for the incredible sunrises which can best be viewed by the pool early in the morning (hot chocolate and croissants optional), or enjoy some stargazing with the naked eye at night.  You and your children will never forget it!

Thank you so much Tim & Razia for an amazing two weeks at Artagnan. The children have loved their time with you and Jason and I haven’t felt this relaxed in years! We are so grateful for your kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness. We will always remember this special holiday at Artagnan, thank you so much.

Jennifer, Simon, Ella (4) & Theo (2) – August 2020

What a relaxing holiday. We have loved our week here, Ella & Theo have loved feeding the animals, playing thieves, painting, finding fish & lizards – thank you for all your kindness and you are both such attentive hosts. We will be back. Thank you for everything xxxx

Andy, Cath, Jay and family (4th visit) – July 2020

Evie, Gav, Olla & Bobby + Cat, Giles, Sammy & Louis – July 2020

What a blessed relief to be able to come here to Artagnan after all! And forget the crazy covid world worries for a while. Thank you so much for another wonderful week here and for all your help. The children have absolutely loved it and so have we. See you next year! x

Neil, Dee, James (6), Harry (6) and George (1) – August 2019

Thank you to both you and Razia for such a wonderful, relaxing holiday. You have created something very special with Artagnan. A unique, luxurious rural French stay with all a family’s needs taken care of:

The house was simply stunning – we both loved lots of pieces of furniture and the towels were so soft. 

The gardens and pool just perfect for the boys to explore and play whilst being safe under our watchful eyes.

The sheep and chickens – what can i say?? The boys adored feeding them and learning all about them and we’ve had several requests for them as pets now we are home!! 

Thank you for the childcare you offered – I know little George was challenging initially but thank you for persevering with him. His farewells to you both are testament to how much he loved his time with you. 

The service you both provided with the food and drink was a lifesaver and made my life of feeding my brood so much simpler.  

Above all, thank you both for being so kind and welcoming. You bent over backwards to ensure we felt looked after and had the best holiday.  Well – it worked – I don’t think, since having children we’ve ever had such an amazing, family holiday where Neil and I enjoyed it as much as the boys. 

The Richards family – July 2019 (5th visit)

What a wonderful week! You have provided a wonderful weeks holiday and the boys have ABSOLUTELY loved every minute they’ve spent here. The care and attention you provide in everything here at Artagnan is so unique and makes it such an enjoyable holiday. Thank you for a fantastic week.

Valentine/Young Family with children Max (2) & Callum (1) – September 2018

Well what can we say, what a brilliant place! Not a detail has been left out, the kids absolutely loved all the toys! Most importantly, Tim & Razia are the perfect hosts who really go out of their way to make your holiday special. The childcare they provided in particular was amazing Max (2) & Callum (1) loved feeding the sheep and chickens and they’ve taken so much away from this holiday. THANK YOU XXX
