About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Caroline Atkinson

After many years of moving house due to work commitments, my husband and I decided to take a risk and move to. France, a place we both love. Three years on we have set up a successful Gite business and love the life we have. We meet some wonderful people and have never looked back. After staying in some "basic" Gites when we were looking for houses, we believe in trying to provide a home from home for people when they stay with us. People work too hard for their money to be short changed.

This is a lovely gite in beautiful rural setting. So quiet and peaceful, good for the soul.
A tastefully converted rustic house with modern bathrooms and kitchen. It was beautifully maintained with very good quality bedding and towels.
Caroline and Tony are very genuine, generous and thoughtful hosts who made us extremely welcome, but also respected our privacy.
Caroline also provided an exceptional welcome pack which we really appreciated after a long journey.
The house is situated in the Lot area in the midst of numerous Bastide medieval towns and magnificent châteaux, great for exploring. There are fantastic vineyards in the surrounding areas so plenty of wine tasting available too!
We would highly recommend the gite to others.
