Customer Reviews:
“A fantastic holiday in a beautiful Gite” Our stay in this Gite was just perfect, the pool is lovely, warm and big! The surroundings are peaceful and very private and the owners made our stay just perfect. We were made welcome from the second we arrived with a lovely cold beer!! Such a kind family who were more than happy to take time out to suggest places to visit.
Thoroughly recommend this for a holiday for relaxation, lovely typical French accommodation with comfortable beds and everything we could possibly need, great service and lovely warm weather.
We truly hope to visit again one day, thank you. Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in August 2016

“Everything we needed” A great place to stay. House was spacious and well equipped. The pool was lovely and plenty of room to sunbathe. Fatima and Francois were the perfect hosts and could not do enough for us. They maintained a discreet distance during the stay but if we did need any advice they were on hand to give it. A hand painted picture of the gite arrived through the post a few days after we got home. A really nice touch and a great reminder of our holiday.

“The best gite we've stayed in” We have just returned from a fantastic week at La Pomerie. We could not fault the accommodation or the owners. They really want this to be home from home and for their guests to have a really relaxing holiday. They are on hand if you need them and nothing is too much trouble. We were lucky with the weather and were able to use the lovely well maintained pool. We took our dog with us, the whole area is very safe and well fenced, he found the nearby sheep fascinating.

“Amazing & Peaceful” If you are looking for true France you must stay here! Fatima & her family including jingles the dog were so welcoming and warm to us. We arrived with 5 teenagers and 3 tiny dogs and after a long drive were met at the cottage by Fatima who had prepared a basket of local goods for us to eat and drink which was very appreciated. The cottage was so beautiful, picturesque and very peaceful. There was lots of room for our dogs to run in the gardens and the cottage and every day we were greeted by the local sheep in the back garden which our teenagers loved (and doggies).
The cottage had everything we needed, English TV, dishwasher, washing machine and a fabulous shower and everyone loved the pool! There are also lots of towns to explore and find so it is well worth exploring. We would give our holiday experience a 5 star, we will be returning to stay here as we really enjoyed our holiday. Thank you Fatima and family for a lovely relaxing holiday. Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
