The Gite is in a rural setting surrounded by trees , for us being older, the ability to just rent the bottom half all, with everything on one level is brilliant, the main bed is a large king size and very comfortable, well equipped with a dishwasher and proper coffee making machine, the wood burning stove is fantastic, Nadia the owner is wonderful, and went far beyond what would be expected when we got involved in an accident, all in all a great place to stay and relax, you will have a great time

Lovely,well appointed gite in a very peaceful location. - Quiet country lanes for cycling and walking and if that is too energetic, the swing-seat is the ideal place to relax and watch the wild birds! There are lots of local restaurants to suit all budgets and plenty of things to see and the area.
The owner has provided a very useful information pack for first timers, although many guests are regulars and it obvious why. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner, who lives locally and is always available.with help or advice. We will be back next year!!
