The property has been recently converted to a high standard. It is down a secluded lane and whilst attached, the property alongside is not inhabited so you really do have peace and quiet in the countryside.

The space

Dingley Dell is a stunning home tucked away down a little lane in the middle of french countryside. Yet you are only a 5 minute walk from a local village with a bar and excellent rustic restaurant and a 10 minute drive from a market town with all services including a good supermarket. The house is on three levels and has a private little moat-like garden with a BBQ patio and hot tub. Recently renovated throughout, the house is beautifully decorated and gives that touch of luxury feel. On the ground floor you have a number of cellars including a separate laundry room and the entrance into the house through the huge kitchen diner - off to the left is the pantry area and off this a large bathroom with free standing bath. From the kitchen you can go through patio doors leading on to a breakfast deck - ideal for outside dining or an early evening drink!
upstairs you have a second dining area with a wood burning stove and arched window. On one side of the dining area is a double bedroom and shower/wc and on the other a luxurious large lounge with sat TV and DVD. The lounge also has a wood burning stove to keep you cozy on cooler evenings. Upstairs leads you to the white bedroom with a double bed, pass through this room and enter the master suite - a very large room with double bed and two bed settees providing a quiet lounge area.
Please note that the hot tub is drained during the winter months to protect from frost, however should you wish to use the tub we can refill it and heat it for your stay as long as you tell us in advance. We do need to add a surcharge for this however to cover our costs - 40€ per stay.

Wonderful house on three levels. The 8 of us really had a great time in Quins. Children were free to run in the frontyard and even swim on the big hot tub. Julie and Andy welcomed us very well and were really helpfull. I would definitely recommand this house for any family who want to have a peacefull summer vacation far for the city. Very tastefull and quiet. Thanks again

We enjoyed staying here, Julie was very helpful and we were able to explore many of the beautiful villages in this region from here. Julie even took us to the supermarket. Everything we needed was available.

Nous avons passé une semaine avec nos deux enfants de 3 ans et 1 an dans cette très belle maison soignée avec goût et bien entretenue. La maison est reculée dans un endroit très calme et était presque trop grande pour nous. Julie et Andy nous ont bien accueilli avec en plus une gentille attention de leur part en arrivant: une bouteille de vin, du lait, beure et des oeufs. La cuisine est très bien équipée ce qui a été très appréciable pour cuisiner. Le grand nombre de serviettes de bain et douche disponible ont été très appréciable également. Le jacuzzi était parfait, surtout pour nos deux enfants en journée et pour nous même le soir! Le restaurant/ café du village était malheureusement fermé la semaine ou nous y étions. Seul le ménage du sol et des pièces d'eau nous a paru trop superficiel, mais le reste était très bien. Il y a différentes activités pour les enfants en bas âge à seulement 10-30min de la maison en voiture (parcs animaux, petits lacs) et quelques belles villes à visiter également dans les environs.

Response from Julie:
I am sorry that you didn't find the floors cleaned to your liking - I can assure you that everywhere was swept and wet mopped prior to your arrival from the top of the house to the bottom.

Nous avons passé une semaine très agreable dans ce gite perdu au milieu des champs. Nous etions 3 adultes et 3 enfants ( 2 ans, 3ans et demi et 11 ans) .très bon accueil. Le gite est tres calme, propre et rénové avec goût. La cuisine dispose de tout le necessaire pour cuisiner avec plaisir. Pas de soucis à l interieur avec les jeunes enfants. Nous avions fermé la petite terrasse à l est de l etage car celle ci n a pas de garde corps. Les enfants ont beaucoup apprécié le jacuzzi.

I live in the SW of France with my husband, twin daughters and our dog, Fidget. I'm English and moved to France 13 years ago with my family as a bit of a 'life change'. In my previous life I used to be in charge of a large Special Needs department in a secondary school. Here in France we run a gite complex with 3 holiday homes on site and I also manage another 4 properties belonging to friends who part followed us out here (they bought holiday homes close to us but still live in the UK). Andy my husband looks after the buildings here and renovates other properties in the area. My girls are at secondary school in our local market town and are totally bilingual (much to my envy). We remain incredibly busy but have a lovely family bond with everyone mucking in together - making the big move definitely the right thing to have done. I love the day to day challenge of coping in a foreign language, going to aqua gym with my french neighbour and teaching English in Toulouse on a part time basis. In the 11 years we have been running the gite complex I've made many friends from all walks of life and one of my greatest pleasures is seeing stressed out families leaving relaxed and happy after a great holiday. Makes all the hard work worthwhile.
