We stayed for a long weekend with our friends.

La Deuxieme Source was spotlessly clean and we received a warm welcome from Roger and Sandra. Lovely quiet location, very spacious and well equipped property. Breakfasts outside in the sunshine were a highlight - we had great weather.

Masses to do within easy driving distance. We had a fabulous time and hope to return.

Highly recommended.

Have stayed many times at Deuxieme Source: quality of the gite has never altered, it is as good now as when we first stayed.
Roger and Sandra are excellent hosts - nothing is too much trouble.
Would not hesitate to recommend.

We had a very restful and enjoyable holiday here, Roger and Sandra were very attentive and we could not have asked for more. We would definitely return in the summer months to enjoy more of the good weather we luckily had so late in the season, and to see the places that had unfortunately turned a little sleepy for the winter! The cottage was extremely comfortable with decent pillows for a change! Our only suggestion would be that given the rooms are so generous in size that maybe one king size bed would be an advantage for those larger couples! But for ourselves we couldn't fault it. Most highly recommend it!

Once again a fantastic stay ,we had so much help from Roger and Sandra when our car broke down.
The gite is one of the best we have ever stayed in and will certainly be returning. it was so well equiped and very comfortable. the beds also comfortable which you dont ofton find . the location is great for beaches and site seeing . plenty to do all within a short driving distance . Can not emphasize how great this place is .
