What can I say except when can I come back? Glorious weather, 5* food home cooked by Jill and the best company ever. Thank you ever so much Jill for making me feel so at home, I will recommend you to everyone.

I can honestly say I had a fantastic few days & never eaten quite so much food! It was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Loved all the animals and hope to go back soon. Highly recommended for horse riding in the area

Thank you both for an enjoyable, fun filled and relaxing week. The meals were fabulous and countryside beautiful. Thank you Jill for driving us to all the sites (vineyards, Lourdes, fete,etc!) and of course taking us horseback riding with my sisters, we have fond memories together! Thank you Jill and Tim.

We stayed at French Activity Holidays for a week, we booked it for something different from a beach holiday and it didn't disappoint. I was slightly worried that I don't speak French as the majority of my holidays in Europe have been in Spain and I can speak enough Spanish to get by, however, I needn't have worried as Jill,...

My sisters and I were on vacation at French Activity Holidays in September of 2015. We had a wonderful time! The house is clean and welcoming with beautiful countryside views from each of the bedroom windows. On clear days you can see the Pyrenees Mountains from the living room!
