This gite is wonderful! It is in a beautiful quiet and rural location but with good access to amenities nearby (via car). There are loads of towns, villages, chateaus and if you want it, touristy locations nearby. The gite itself is extremely comfortable, clean and well thought out with all the mod cons you could need and having the pool is wonderful! Alan and Suzanne are wonderful hosts, friendly and very willing to help out if needed. Thoroughly recommended!

I went with my family for four days to celebrate my 30th birthday and we really did have the most wonderful time. The swimming pool is gorgeous and so is the pool area, with a brilliant big BBQ. The house itself was clean, tidy and beautifully decorated. Our hosts were very considerate, leaving us a lovely welcome pack and allowing us use of the pool privately, even when they were there. They were very much there if needed but otherwise gave up privacy. We had a lovely time and would definitely return.

Response from Alan:
Thank you for the review. It was a shame the dishwasher broke down and I could not fix it. The good news is that it has been replaced. I am glad you enjoyed your experience.

We are a couple from Berkshire, UK and moved here in December 2015 with the intention to de-stress and run our own business.
We have re-built the gite and the are in the process of re-designing the gardens (3 acres). Please do not worry there will be no work while we have guests.
We are very relaxed and like to meet new people. We like to travel and once we have been established in France we will be adding a motor home to our stable so we can travel across more of Europe than we have ever travelled across.
