Garden and outside

We have lovely gardens and have created a treasure hunt for the children to have a search around, there are two different gardens to explore, the garden immediately attached to the gite is enclosed and is laid mainly to lawn, designed with children in mind to enjoy a run around. There is a large covered terrace with a large table and large bbq, lovely for a long evening counting stars and enjoying the French wine. The second garden has a feature stone circle where a good phone signal can be reached and a wonderful view of the sunsets.
