Peace and Tranquility
The gite is in a little hamlet which is delightful. The downside is access to shops or a restaurant. While there are bikes available to use, the reality is you'll probably need to drive to most places. The kitchen is well equipped, basics such as coffee and sugar were provided. There is a gas BBQ out the back if that's more your thing.
Peaceful Rural Retreat
The property was just brilliant.
Everything you needed and a lovely garden with plenty of shade and sun.
The pool was just right for cooling off.
a great holiday experience.
Sally and Richard are the perfect hosts. there if you need them for help or advice.
We had a very relaxing stay which was everything we wanted.
Perfect location for a quiet holiday. Everything necessary provided
An amazing setting, wonderful and well-appointed gite, a real home from home. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, and real, rural France, this is a must. Thanks Sally & Richard!! Joe & Jeremy
A fantastic gite, with everything you need or want for your stay. Wonderful hosts in Sally and Richard. The view from the gite was spectacular, with evening spent watching the stars and wildlife. Recommend this gite to any couple, on on our list to visit again
Wonderful well equipped holiday home
This was without doubt the best equippedand comfortable gite we have ever stayed in. It lies in a very peaceful and beautiful location. If you are looking for a peaceful restful holiday this is the place. We were going to do lots of touristy things but the lure of the house,garden and pool was too much! You do need transport although the village is a walkable distance if you are fit. The décor of the house is beautiful, the bed comfy, plenty of storage space, huge selection of kitchen equipment, a big TV ( that we didn't use!) and a wonderful terrace where our evenings were spent . We were there for a rest and Sally and Richard were the perfect hosts....there if you needed them but very respectful of your privacy. We had a wee problem with the wifi not working but that was fixed by the time we left. All in all it is a wonderful place for a holiday and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
