10 / 10 Christine & David 19 August, 2018

Gite exactly as advertised in a lovely quite location, it was very clean and well maintained.

We found Martin & Sue to be the ideal owners, very welcoming and always available if you needed them to be, a lovely easy going couple.

Basil & Bertie, the adorable dogs were absolutely charming.

A very enjoyable and relaxing holiday was had in this property.

Would certainly return if we visited the Vendee again.

Many thanks to Martin & Sue.
