You could not want for better hosts than Nick and Marie, so welcoming and knowledgeable of the area.

The gite was charming and cosy. Our dog Boo was treated, like us, as a five star guest.

Lynda and me did not want to go home nor did Boo. We would 101% recommend staying at this gite for the area, accommodation and hosts.

Like “Arnie” we will be back. Thank you and love to you both. See you soon!

Management response:

That is lovely to know.We look forward to your return visit

As stated in the title I cant recommend this property enough. The hosts were friendly and inviting and always at hand if required. The property is ideal for a romantic getaway and the airports are close to hand. The surrounding area is breathtaking. Would recommend it all my friends and intend to bring the wife here later in the year or early next year. Thanks again Maria and Nick

Management response:

Thank you so much.Look forward to seeing you with your wife.
