The gite is comfortable and in great location with views across the countryside. Very quiet surroundings.Lovely heated pool great for the kids to splash away in. Tony and Sue are there if you need them for anything but will leave you alone. Their recommendations are very welcomed and do not disappoint. The towns are all within a short drive.

However it is within easy reach of some lovely small towns -...
