Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Spacious gite, caring owners, well equipped kitchen, brilliant barbecue, evening sunsets, warm pool. What more can we say! Upstairs the bedrooms get hot in summer but that is a minor problem. Descartes is a nice non- touristy town with good food shops.
