Our party arrived at Trev and Mags Gite after a pretty bad channel crossing. We were a party of seven ranging in age from six to seventy seven so everything had to be pretty good to satisfy us all. We were not disappointed!! We were greeted by Trev,Mags and Jagger their Staffy terrier,shown the gite and all its amenities and then left to settle in.
The gite was spotless,well maintained and if anything better than the description. Trev and Mags were on hand with advice of places to visit and if they could not give us an answer they soon found the information for us.
All in all our holiday was terrific and it was a sad party that had to leave. Trev and Mags were wonderful hosts and if you want to see a dog that cracks wallnuts with his teeth and then sorts the nut from the shell then Jagger the Staffy is the dog to watch.

Owner response

Thank you for this comment
We strive to make every person's stay as good as we can & try to offer the personal approach but also blend into the back ground when we are not needed
We hope you had a better return trip
Hope to see you again
Trev & Mags
