Home of the Plantagenets
We had a fantastic stay at the gite, it had everything we needed and is a beautiful rustic French retreat in a beautiful peaceful location. It was perfect for us - not so clean and perfect that we had to worry about the boys playing or being normal children but a lovely home from home with clean fresh linen and towels and a TV with sky channels and dvds for film nights, a great outside (and inside) space for meals and a dishwasher on hand in the well equipped kitchen.
The pool area and the pool itself was perfect for fun and lounging and Colin kept it in top form during our stay. Colin and Joyce were welcoming and friendly, inviting the boys and us to meet their dog and puppy, fish and frogs and givng us local information whilst being unobtrusive and lettng us enjoy our stay in privacy.
We had nature walks and saw hare, deer and listened to the new owls and the countryside is rural peaceful with forests and sunflowers - great for running and the stars and milky way were beautiful at night.
If you want top end luxury and all mod cons perfection it won't be for you but it was delghtful and great value for money. The photos did not do it justice!
Thanks, Colln and Joyce it was lovely to meet you, we hope to come again!
The property is in a beautiful setting but requires quite some upkeep - a requirement which was not wholly addressed on our visit. It is surrounded by fields affording an uninterrupted view of the lovely countryside, although there is no view from the gite itself (an L-shape to owners’ accommodation and reached from the car park by a footpath which runs past the owners’ front door). A round outdoor pool, accessed via a branch of the same path, is a boon. The gite itself is spacious, with a big kitchen, but as noted above is - shall we say - rustic, notably in the kitchen and showers, which we thought required attention (i.e. a clean, especially cutlery and crockery). WiFi was often patchy. But the large covered patio is a nice place to have meals. The owners are a nice couple but the services of a professional cleaner are in our view a must, to give better value for money.
Rather unkind review the remarks regards cleanliness were untrue my wife and I work hard to give a good standard and walking past the owners front door?? rediculous!!we have our own private partio area so little contact with guests.This particular coulple were elderly and childless insular and never gave any indication of any of disatisfiction of the standard of the accomodation
