Fantastic holiday home, we love it so much we’ve been 2 years in a row, and gave rebooked for next year already. A Beautiful old French farmhouse, tastefully decorated and with so much space, our children want to live here forever. We stayed here with my mum, sister and our 5 children ( 9 of us in total )and we all had plenty of room!. This house is perfect for families, or friends/groups sharing.
The house has a dishwasher, washing machine, sky tv etc and is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house is very clean and well maintained and Gill and Michael are truly wonderful hosts,so friendly and welcoming and nothing is ever too much trouble.
The pool is amazing, it has beautiful safe gardens to enjoy and the barn is so full of toys and games the children never get bored. A wonderful rural area of France, with so many places to visit and so much to do. We regularly visit Chavigny and Saint Savin, enjoying local shops and restaurants as well as the traditional French markets nearby, that are a joy to visit, There are also beautifully clean rivers to swim in nearby too, as well as many tourist attractions. It’s a truly relaxing holiday,
We are always so sad to leave and can’t believe that the two weeks go so so quickly.
But we always look forward to the next time we return 😀
hosts are lovely nothing is too much trouble, they are on site but super respective of privacy, setting is fabulous restful, peaceful and beautiful. Gite is spacious and fully equipped for everything great comfy beds, real grand old farmhouse furnishings tastefully done, plenty of hot water and two bathrooms.
Outside space is grand, games barn has so much to keep all ages occupied, pool is a real asset, clean big, beautiful views and comfy lougers and pool toys fun, again appreciated by all ages.
We had a great week and will definitely return and would whole heartedly recommend it as a place to stay, a car is needed to access shops and surrounding tourist sites, or you can take bikes and enjoy the area straight from the Gite like we did.
