After travelling for nearly 5 weeks my wife and I needed a break. We chose this gite because of the reviews and were not disappointed. The hosts made us feel very welcome.

Fantastic stop off point en route to the south. Great for a couple with a baby. Clean, well equipped gite and tastefully styled with its own outdoor space with a bbq. It is attached to the owners farmhouse who are helpful and welcoming. We had wine and hens' eggs provided for us on our first night. We highly recommend this... more

The gite was spotlessly clean and had all the main facilities we wanted. A wonderful welcome pack was provided which made us feel very welcome indeed. Virginia and Mike (as well as Molly, Eric and Ernie) are excellent hosts and ensure that your holiday is peaceful and relaxing. We would definitely recommend this as a "get away from it all"... more

Management response:

So glad you had a great time. We do aim to please and enjoyed your company. Thank you Virginia more
