We stayed in the smaller wing of the gite. Both wings are extremely comfortable and our dog had a great time with the acreage around the property. The hamlet in which the gite is located is about a mi… More

This is an entirely objective and fair review and we agree with the comments made. The guest's took advantage of our current discount for bookings made within two weeks of arrival and made their booking the day before arrival. They were model guest's and left the Gite and grounds as they found them, very clean and tidy. The flies were a nuisance that week for us and many of our local friends as well and we believe this unusual occurrence was linked with the fact that we had had a major wind storm (Tornado) a few days prior with 100MPH winds. The unusual phenomenon eased off a day or so after the guest's left and we assure future guest's that this is not a normal feature of the property. The comments about the BBQ and the micro wave have been taken on board and will be actioned for future guest's. We would welcome these guest's back any time.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. We are always open to receiving feedback and will definately look into the comments you have raised. There are stairgates available on request for the younger visitors and I agree wooden floors can be a bit slippery with just socks on so extra care should be taken when walking around especially when using the stairs. Maybe there is a product which can be utilised in this case otherthan carpets which don't normally exist here in France (only on rare ocassions). We will look to placing a rug adhesive in the lounge or even discard the rug altogether. Flies can be a problem sometimes in France and so maybe by purchasing a 'electronic wall mounted zapper' may help the situation but is not a problem all summer round. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here and look forward to seeing you all next year.
