This was an ideal property for our party of three generations; there was plenty of room inside and out and the splash pool was particularly welcome given the very high temperatures during our stay. The gite was well equipped, spotlessly clean and well maintained. Mark and Jos were very welcoming and helpful - always on call but not intrusive. The surroundings were very peaceful but the nearest town with all the necessary amenities was only a half hour walk away. Would highly recommend.
