I will definately be back, not just saying, it felt like home, this is a great place to recover from your journey, Phil & Christine have the knack of understanding one's needs, sit down relax have a drink, even the ducks are comfortable.

We have three young children and spent a fortnight in this gite. The gite is immaculately kept and very well equipped. The swimming pool is beautiful with lovely views of the surrounding country side. The hosts are welcoming and informative, there when you need them but still allow you a lot of privacy as a family. Our children haven't stopped...
