A wonderful and spacious Gite with very welcoming and attentive hosts. The facilities were very good and accurately matched the description in the advert. The pool made the family holiday and the children really enjoyed it along with the table tennis, badminton and football. A quiet location but some very good day trips are easily accessible.
