We had a great stay at Les Hetres. Rita and Alan were excellent hosts - friendly, helpful and on-hand without being intrusive. They communicated very well in advance; for example, they informed us that there would be no shops open when we arrived and they shopped for us in advance. The gite is small but functional, with all the fundamental facilities and equipment needed for self-catering. The location is very peaceful - it is surrounded by farmland and is a short distance from a very picturesque village. Although there are no shops in Armaille, Pouance is a small town a few km away, which has a supermarket and other shops, but is also a historic centre with impressive medieval castle ruins. There is a very pleasant walk around the large lake there, which we enjoyed very much. Cycling in the area is a delight - quiet roads with good surfaces through pleasant countryside and small villages.
The Gite is ideal for couples, clean and well appointed. You will need transport to local town of Pounce for provisions though owners of Gite are very accommodating and will supply a grocery pack.
This is our third visit - would recommend if you like rural area. There are many attractions in the adjoining towns and villages.
