What an AMAZING little gem of a find is LE Gite in Lorigne.
From the minute we were welcomed by our hosts Helen and Mark this place took our breath away the luxurious Gite is top notch without a doubt, from the slippers and facepack on my bed in my luxurious bedroom The Pinky, to The White Company products in the perfect bathrooms, they have indeed gone above and beyond to make your stay memorable. The outdoor pool, sunbathing and shaded seating area is second to none and again no expense spared on quality and cleanliness and only enhances the relaxation of this beautiful place and was well used on this lovely hot week. I will definitely be returning as soon as I can and know that any guests would never be disappointed, what a find!! ***** 5 Star Review
