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.

"Wonderful little gite, perfect for two, beautiful situation"

Great little gite exactly as described and with exclusive access to beautiful grounds and pool this was the perfect spot for relaxing and catching the sun. With an English 'caretaker' on hand to ensu… More

It's great to hear that you enjoyed a really relaxing couple of weeks at The Hobogîte, and also that you put all the lovely cooking utensils to good use during your stay. We were however sorry to hear that the relatively slow Broadband in our part of rural France caused you some difficulties. It's important to bear in mind the “fair usage” download limit of 2GB per week, which is OK for emails and some normal web browsing, but it's unfortunately not up to downloading numerous files, or watching videos, etc. Fortunately though, all the local cafés, supermarkets, etc. provide free Wi-Fi when you need to download stuff. Thanks again for leaving such a nice review, and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.
