We had a wonderful 2 weeks staying at Les deux sapins. The gite was exactly as described and spotlessly clean when we arrived. The owners couldn't have been more kind and helpful and went out of their way to make the whole holiday a magical experience for our children. The gite is in a beautiful area of France with plenty to do nearby. It was a bit and sunny 2 weeks while we were there and we made the most of swimming at the local lakes. There are a number of good restaurants nearby including one in the beautiful local town of St Benoit de Sault. This is the perfect place to stay for families with younger children as the area around the gite is quiet and equipped with lots of toys etc to keep the children entertained.

We've just spent 10 nights at Les Deux Sapins. When we arrived we had a warm welcome from Heather and Steve and they continued to do everything they could to make our stay a happy one. The cottage is set in lovely, rural surroundings yet not too far from the A20. It is very easy to relax here as there's lots of space and a real treat to hear the cuckoo every day. The cottage is cosy and clean and everything you could possibly need is provided. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend the property to our friends and relatives.
