“truly perfect family get-away, everything you could possibly want!”

The gite and area was exactly as described on trip advisor and then some! the hosts Greg and Nikki are thoughtful and there if you need them (even saving us a table at the La Pizou market - a highly recommended Tuesday evening food market), but also give you the space to have the holiday you want.
Wonderful holiday and will definitely be returning.

“An Anglers Eldorado!!”

We stayed here for a week in August 2015. Unfortunately the week passed far too quickly and we all wished that we had stayed for longer. The Gite is very welcoming and is very well equipped, like a home from home. The view from the terrace over the pool down to the Gite Lake is stunning. The pool was a godsend on the hot days. Plenty of wildlife to see from the terrace. Even had a Kingfisher sit on my pole on the Gite Lake.The fishing on the Gite Lake is literally a bite a cast - Carp, Bream and Tench. Had a day on the specimen lake - and what a day - 7 Carp between 16lb and 34lb - 5 over 20lb! This was my first ever serious carp session. Superb memories!
Montpon is a short drive for provisions whilst the village has a good shop for bread and essentials. We had a nice meal in the restaurant on our last night - well worth a visit.
Nikki and Greg are the perfect hosts, available if needed but not obtrusive.
All in all a very enjoyable week. We hope to return soon.

“Beautiful Gite - close to everything”

We stayed here as a couple with our 7 year old and another couple. As soon as we got there we jumped in the pool as it was so hot. Everywhere is spotless and clean. The boys loved the fishing at the bottom of the garden (5 mins walk) whilst us girls relaxed by the pool. There are lots of supermarkets and shops near by and lots to do in the area.
