Why this location? We have plenty of sunshine and are driving distance from the Channel ports, in addition to Caen and Le Havre and our nearest airport, Limoges, is just 45 mins drive away, serviced all year round from the UK by Ryanair.
Unique benefits of property We have family gites and a closed fishing lake (free to fish day and night for guests) - something we struggled to find when we holidayed in France as a family.

9.5 / 10 Gill F 9 August, 2017

Just back from a lovely week. Steve and Margaret have clearly thought through all the 'little bits' needed for a great week in a gite - you can literally turn up and enjoy your holiday. Spacious gite, with private eating and laundry areas outside. The gas barbecue was also clean and ready to go from the off. A beautiful setting, very peaceful. The pool area is spotless. Fishing is building again after the lake having been cleared to the end of last year. Superb hospitality from Steve and Margaret too, there if you needed them without being at all intrusive.
