“Wonderful place, wonderful space,the photos don't do it justice!!”

Five Star>Really fantastic place to stay. Living area far bigger and even better than the photos show. Everything has been done to a very high standard. Very peaceful setting, surrounded by wonderful views, and the families sheep, chickens, cats, donkeys, geese, and Billy the dog are all very entertaining. You might even catch a glimpse of the guinea pig! The hosts are also extremely helpful, you couldn't hope for more. Loads of maps, things to do, games , books and canoeing included. And close to so many great places to visit, (our favourites being Poitiers and Montmorillon). Bob + Agata , Cambridge.

“Lovely gite in rural France, perfect for a family holiday”

people found this review helpful

We had a truly lovely stay - the gite is of a very high standard and is well equipped with everything you need, and Diane and Marcus were very welcoming. There was plenty for our children to do (age 6 and 16 months): our son loved playing on the retro pinball machine and admiring Marcus's collection of vintage cars and tractors, and they both loved pottering around with all the animals, especially the chickens and the donkeys! Diane and Marcus thoughtfully provided both indoor and outdoor toys, plus wet shoes to wear when paddling down at the river. There are plenty of amenities in the village for day to day needs, and some very pretty towns and villages nearby if you want to venture out a bit more. We'd thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay for your relaxed French holiday, and wish Diane and Marcus all the very best with this new venture!

“A truly beautiful place to stay, and run by two incredibly kind and generous people.”

We stayed here with two children, aged nine and twelve, plus a young baby. The animals and land provided excellent entertainment, especially as Diane and Marcus had supplies of outdoor games and were both incredibly kind and generous. The kids would happily have spent half the time at the gite if we hadn't insisted on trips out! The gite had everything we needed and plenty of space. Highly recommended.
