Beautifully restored little stone cottage,very well - fitted out and equipped.
The immediate surroundings are very quiet and rural with an interesting old chateau at the end of the lane.( Ask Jim to book tour for you if possible - it has some amazing painted rooms).
Jim and Eileen are very knowledgeable about the local area - where to visit, where to eat etc. and are more than happy to share this with visitors.
It's not an area of France we have previously visited so it was good to explore local towns and discover places we'd like to return to.
Although the cottage is just for two it's really spacious and comfortable. Hope to return ourselves!
We travelled with friends recently and stayed here for 5 short nights. Our friends stayed in the Rose Cottage, we stayed in the Lavendar Cottage right beside it. We were nearing the end of a lengthy European holiday and were looking for some downtime, to relax and unwind and to do some much needed washing.
This place is the stuff of postcards. Location is miles away from the nearest town but really not that far if you need to get something. Its quiet, its restful, its just a sensational place and with a french chateau in the adjoining property.
Our hosts Jim and Eileen were brilliant, interested in our travels and enormously helpful with advice and directions. The cottages are quite old but have been well renovated and were spacious and well provisioned. Eileen indeed thought of everything for our self catered breakfast. They also hosted a pizza night where you make and cook your own food in a 300+ year old oven. The easy banter, the laughter, the cooking, the red wine made for a truly sensational night and not one to be missed.
I regard this 5 day stay as probably the highlight of our entire trip. I would love to get back there to where the loudest sound outside are the cows. If you want to experience some unique french countryside I would urge you to stay here. We didnt really want to leave and should we venture that way again we will definitely be staying here.
Thank you so much Jim and Eileen for everything that you did. We had such a good time. Well done
Loved Rose Cottage, very comfortable with good facilities, set in a beautiful and peaceful location. Our hosts were really friendly. We had a marvellous time on a pizza evening which they hosted using their own stone baked oven. We would highly recommend this lovely gite and the couple who went out of their way to make our stay a really great experience.
