The gites are very spacious and clean and the pool was lovely. The owners responded to any queries and difficulties that we had.

Unfortunately the Tabac shop does not appear to open at all in the village and there was no sign of any boulangerie delivery on any day so fresh bread required a daily drive into Mansle.

In order to attract more guests, this property would benefit greatly from Wifi and some form of satelite TV to attract younger families.
