Excellent value. The direction to the cottage was very clear and helpful. The cottage is located in a beautiful, forested area with many opportunities for walks. All amenities were provided and made our stay most comfortable. French and English television is made available as well as an excellent WiFi. The owner lives next door and gave us total privacy. more

Stunning area, beautiful gite and grounds. Owners are so kind, helpful and ready to give you advice on the area, if you need it, but they are also very discreet so you are left in privacy. They were very welcoming to our two dogs too! We could not fault this gite and the breathtaking surroundings. more
