We would highly recommend staying at St Valentin cottage you are given a very warm welcome by the owners and they are life savers too!
We arrived in the evening completely forgetting that the French shops close much earlier than the UK and therefore we were without any food for our evening meal and breakfast. We were quickly provided with pasta and tomato sauce - all home grown and made - delicious!
The Gite is immaculate with all the facilities that you may need, it has its own private garden and use of a pool with beautiful views across the valley.
We would return again.
Thank you very much, Karen for such a glowing review. It was a real pleasure to meet you both and hear about your plans. I really hope that you find your ideal house. Please come back to stay with us if you find yourselves in the beautiful Lot et Garonne again.
Best regards, Jane and Tony
