We chose 'la Jugie’ for a big family holiday this year to celebrate significant birthdays for my mum and for two of my brothers (70, 40 and 30 respectively). We were a big group - 10 adults and 7 children and we wanted a property which gave us all enough living space and had lots of safe, but exciting, outside space for the children to have fun in. La Jugie couldn’t have been more perfect: we each had a lovely bedroom (there were no ‘bad’ options) and the rooms were well spread out with large landings giving even more space. The living areas were large too so we never felt on top of each other and the big kitchen was perfect for family meals and very well equipped. We were lucky to have good weather so ate outside every evening in the fabulous covered dining area, usually making use of the barbecue. We had a meal cooked for us one evening which was delicious (so good and reasonable that we wish we’d booked more than one meal!). The outside space was just as I’d hoped - great fun for exploring with the added bonus of a beautiful pool, which we all loved, croquet and even table tennis in a separate building (the site for some very competitive matches!).
The whole place is really well equipped with games, etc and is beautifully decorated - it was a real treat to stay there - it is just stunning. We had high hopes for our family holiday but it had been a very long time since we’d all spent a week together.. thanks to La Jugie we had the most wonderful time - a hoiiday we’re all still talking about and one we won’t forget. We definitely hope to return, and will do as long as the family doesn’t keep growing!
