What a beautiful setting. Just got back, didn't want to leave. Very well equipped, well maintained and clean gite. The swimming pool was very nice and view across the field is lovely. I spent hours sat by the carp lake, fishing and drinking wine in the sunshine.
The hosts John & Yvonne are very friendly and can't do enough for you.
Lovely area of France and I would recommend a visit. Everything you need is a just a short drive away.
We Loved It.
