Interaction with guests
I am always here to greet my guests, welcome them & show them round the gite. The day after arrival you are invited for an aperitif in the main house if you would like to come. I am here to answer any questions you may have about the gite or area, but otherwise leave you in peace! The gite is separate from the main farmhouse & so you can be as independent as you wish.

GITE DU PARADICE This spacious, comfortable, and attractive accommodation remains high on the list of places to which we will return. We enjoyed the elegant tile kitchen or the cozy living room.
