We just returned from a week-long stay at Logis du Pressoir. It was fanastic. We stayed in the largest gite, Le Pressoir, which has three large bedrooms downstairs and has an open-plan lounge/diner/kitchen upstairs. It has outodor tables just outside the front of the gite and another on a large terrace coming off the upstairs kitchen. The gite was beautifully decorated, and had every provision that you could need, together with a lovely welcome basket on arrival. There has been a lot of thought put into safety in the gites, with firm stair gates across all stairwells, and plenty of smoke alarms and fire extinguishers around the place. The gite is set in large mature gardens, with a beautiful swimming pool (cleaned daily), and a play area with swings, playhouse, and other toys for the children. The owners (Lisa and Mark) are so friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. There is a great deal to do in the area, from castles and chateaus, to wineries, to zoos, to fun-parks for the children. We had a wonderful time, and will be back.
