9.8 / 10 Mark & Viv 13 September, 2017

We enjoyed a fabulous two weeks at Les Rossignols. There were three of us, parents and one of our grown up children, but the gite can accommodate one or two more.

The gite is situated in a large property full of fruit trees with access to a pool of which we had exclusive use. Our hosts, who live on site, were both very welcoming and discrete.

The property is well equipped and has wifi. While the village itself has no shops there is a supermarket, baker and bars a short distance away in Le Vigan.

Our stay was notable for the peace and quiet. We took bikes and enjoyed several rides around the neighbouring lanes. Some of the hills are steep but short and there is plenty of variety.

We definitely aim to go back.

We really enjoyed our one-week stay at this gite - it's very charming and Kevin & Constance were perfect hosts. The garden setting and pool are lovely. The kitchen is well equipped, the showers are good with lots of hot water, the TV has all the channels, there are books and games galore for those rainier days when you can't explore outside. It's very quiet and relaxing.

The surrounding area is very charming and nearby Gourdon (8 kms) has lots of shops and a Saturday market. We would love to return one day to this fantastic gite!

Owner response

Dear Jen and Simon, thank you so much for writing your great review. You were lovely guests and we were pleased to read that your week was relaxing and you enjoyed yourself.
Jen, as a not-to-keen-on-cats person you were so good with Mojo and he wonders where you both have gone. Present guests have 3 dogs, so he keeps well clear of the gite.
Whenever you in the area you must come and see us. Share your adventures and some wine and cheese. Go well and all the best. Kevin, Constance and Mojo.

Les Rossignols is set in a peaceful location deep in the heart of France. This characterful Gite has everything you need to have a quiet relaxing and peaceful holiday with its large garden and refreshing swimming pool. The property is well kept and maintained. Constance and Kevin were fantastic hosts and very informative of local sites and attractions. We would whole heartedly recommend this property to anyone.

Owner response

Dear David, Wendy, Nigel and Sonia, How very nice to read that your holiday was a happy one and how wonderful of you to write a glowing report. We loved your company and hope that whenever you are in the area you will visit us for some bread, cheese and vino.

We had a wonderful week at this charming peaceful Gite. Constance and Kevin our hosts were so lovely and we couldn't have been made more welcome. The pool is a welcome addition and a real bonus in hot weather. There is so much to see and do in the area and our week wasn't long enough to do it all so another visit is defo on the cards. Our hosts are absolute animal lovers and do do much to help the local cat charity. The only one drawback it there is one is that it is a couple of miles to the nearest village with shops and restaurants etc. But, there are several big supermarkets in Goudon which is only 8k up the road.

Owner response

We are so pleased that your week at Les Rossignols was a happy one. You were such wonderful guests and we were sad to see you leave. We would love that if and when you are in the area to make a stop and share a meal with us. By the way, your beautiful car was the talk of the village ! Go well and thanking you so much for writing your review.
Kevin, Constance and Mojo
