My parents bought the property many years ago, I was given the opportunity to have them five years ago and accepted as the properties hold many happy memories of family holidays as my parents stayed in one and we would stay in the other and would get together for meals at the end of the day. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the children enjoyed the freedom to run around. Going out daily to explore the surrounding areas.

Absolutely loved staying at the maison du bonheur, it was a very pleasant surprise when we arrived as the pictures don’t do it justice, the house was very clean and kept to a high standard and we had everything we could possible ask for, the kids 13 & 10 loved running around all the outside space and the farmers dog was very friendly and played with the kids, their was no Wifi which we also loved as we spent most time when in the Gite around the big farmhouse table in the kitchen, great base for almost everywhere, would love to spent more time there as time seemed to go so quickly, the owner Helen was very helpful from start to finish and Jean was such a lovely lady, we really had a fantastic holiday thank you for letting us stay in such a great place 😊
