Sylvia and I bought La Gaillardenque 24 years ago and have spent many happy family holidays there.We decided in 2005 that we would let the property for a few weeks every year to help with the running costs.Guests who have stayed there constantly remark that it is not the usual holiday let , but more of a family home.<br/>

|Why this location?||After visiting many areas of France we found this to be very picturesque and full of historical and interesting places to visit.|
|Unique benefits of property||Being a family home , we have catered not just for the average holiday let , but what we would expect a comfortable home to be.|
