Home from home, I enjoy returning, my dog loves returning - for him it is a second home.
Easy, friendly and well appointed, perfectly situated and a joy to return to whatever the weather.
Wonderful place, we will return, and would highly recommend.
An excellent holiday home very comfortable with good facilities. Hosts Roger & Sandra are superb hosts and very friendly. You will not be disappointed if you choose this holiday.
This is the best gite we have ever stayed in which is why we return year after year - this was our 14th visit. It is well maintained in excellent condition in a peaceful setting but only 3 km from the nearest beach. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends or relatives but would have to warn them that as it is so popular, with a high percentage of repeat bookings, they might have difficulty finding a vacant week!
