    We have just had a superb couple of nights at Parc Verger and met the new owners Franc and Lisa. They are a lovely couple and are working very hard to make this lovely site even better. The bureau now has a selection of foods in case you have forgotten something and also a freezer full of ice creams which on Sunday was very welcome as the weather was rather hot, they also had the pool open, bliss.
    The weekend was made even more enjoyable as there were other Funsters there so as you can imagine the world was put to rights.
    We would like to wish Franc and Lisa all the best for the future. It was also good to meet up, at last, with Steph and Ken, aka munchies, hope you get your motorhome back soon.

    Take care everyone
    Sue and Steve

    Hi all

    Thanks to Steve and Sue for that full report. I echo their comments as I had no time to post any of my own after my week-end there. Thumb

    Hello Franc & Lisa ,hope all is going to plan for you , with your enthusiasm and attitude to customer service , I'm sure it is .
    We spent 4 nights at PV and enjoyed every minute . Thanks to Steph and Ken , @Munchie ,who were very nice to us and helped us find @laneside ( Alan & Linda ) in their new house .
    When we eventually got to Antibes we paid 3 times as much as PV per night and WiFi was 20 Euros a week , not included in the price ! ( we did without ! )

    I would recommend anybody going past the Limoges area to call in for a rest at Parc Verger with the new hosts Franc & Lisa

    :smiley: Hello Franc & Lisa :smiley: We had our first experience of holidaying in France in August and really got the bug to go back. Usually we spend Christmas and New Year in Cornwall but were thinking of doing something different this year and are looking at travelling down through France to experience something different. We dont want wall to wall sunshine and can put up with a bit of colder weather as long as the scenery is good and we can walk our doggies and have a relaxing time. We've seen photos of Parc Verger at Christmas and New Year and we thought that if we made our way down to you it would be a good way to immerse ourselves in a little french culture on the way and arrive at a site with some friendly faces who can speak english. We always try to speak french (with the help of google translate) but it would be nice to aim for somewhere like your site where we can put our feet up and relax over the festive season. From your website it looks like you are open all year and we wondered if we needed to book early rather than nearer the time we are thinking of setting off. :smiley:

    Always nice to make new friends!
    Anyone calling here come up to "Chateau Munchie" and say hello we do not bite!
    We are in the "naughty corner" furthest from the entrance (so we do not frighten off the new arrivals) :)

    I can attest to that, we were made very welcome at both Chateau Munchie and Parc Verger back in June, hope to return in the not too distant future (note to self, bring wine, lots of wine... ;) )

    I always avoid chateau munchie I end up with a hangover and a few extra pounds added to my weigh. Steph brilliant not too fussed about the handyman (oxymoron ) bit of a grumpy old git. Down the road you will find a rather wet Lancastertrians ,lynda is fine but soggy, Hmmmm

    Seriously a great site and some great ex pats. You must try the eggs from next door.

    Not made up our minds yet. Partly weather dependent, don't mind cold but don't like too much wet n dull.

    We love living within 3 Km of Parc Verger as we keep getting visits from other funsters, ok so we usually have to put up with the Munchies at the same time but hey they are OK
