10 / 10 Vanessa & Mark 30 July, 2019

This is a beautiful Gite, we immediately felt very welcome, at home & comfortable. The house has everything you can wish for, the owners have considered every requirement. Ian & Susan (dogs & horse ) were so welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Lovely welcome hamper, very generous. The pool was a god-send as the weather reached 40 degrees.

Would recommend Le Campagnard in Fougerolles for a fabulous traditional French menu, also for water sports Sensas Park in Pouligny-Notre-Dame which is great value, 15 euros for an hour knee boarding, water sking ect

We will definitely be returning

The gite is spacious and in a beautiful location, surrounded by farms. It was easily big enough for our family of four.

Nearest small town is 15-20mins drive away with supermarket and bakery etc.

Susan and Ian were the perfect hosts. They had a tasty meal prepared for our arrival.

We had a fabulous two weeks there and would highly recommend!
