"Great for a quiet break, very comfortable, recommended"

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.

We are very surprised by the above. Clients did not complain during their 2 night stay (which was a booking for 4 /5 nights and could have been charged as such). 60 euros (not £'s) per night was the high season charge agreed with the clients by phone when booking. The apartment is open plan and has a window and french doors plus window in the bathroom.The view is of trees lawns and shrubs and the water tanks ?? I can only assume is the small water butt for collecting rain water. We live here in France because we love it and the people I have never been rude to anyone in fact we bend over backwards to help all we can. Our property has been inspected and complies with all health and safety guidelines.
