We were made very welcome by the owners of this lovely holiday home. We were provided with additional local information witch was very helpful. It was good to know the owners were only next door if there had been any issues. The gite was well equipped with everything we needed. We had a thoroughly good holiday.

Thank you! Gail & Chris
