"Just 'the break away from it all' we were looking for!"

My husband, 7 and 5 year old and I spent a wonderful week at La Voute, staying in La Houlette (the yurt furthest away from the other yurt, gites etc, which meant we had total privacy and beautiful vie… More

"The peace and quiet of a secluded yurt - with easy access to a wonderful swimming pool and gardens."

We had never stayed in a yurt before - just a tipi - and it was a great, fun experience. The yurt was new, clean, airy, comfortable, well kitted out and warm. The owners, Paula and John (and their… More

"Hobogite Happiness!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks holiday at the Hobogite. It was exactly what we were looking for - a place to relax and recharge batteries. The Hobogite itself has everything you could need and is fin… More

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments - It is great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at The Hobogîte, and we were also pleased to hear that the Table Tennis table has been given a good airing! Many thanks for your recommendations to friends and family, and we hope to welcome you, or them, to The Hobogîte before too long.

"Excellent accommodation in wonderful surroundings"

"Wonderfully peaceful gite"

The Hobogite is a lovely little place tucked away in a hamlet, very peaceful and quiet. It's small but perfectly formed and nice for two. The garden grounds are absolutely fabulous and you have them… More

We're very glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Hobogîte for your "get-away-from-it-all" escape, and we're delighted that you particularly enjoyed the gardens and pool area. It is such a shame that some of the shine was taken off your enjoyment of the stay by the difficulties of providing Broadband in our part of rural France. We recently "upgraded" to satellite, as it seems we're just too far from our telephone exchange for normal broadband. At least this provides a reliable connection (if rather slow at times) and, as you say, all the local cafés, supermarkets, etc. provide free Wi-Fi. Lene and I were are so happy to hear that you both had such a good time at The Hobogîte, getting full enjoyment both from the futuristic "shower pod" in the house and the (huge) old stone Wet Room by the pool. By the way, do you think we should patent the special "parasol holes" around the pool, they are rather nifty, aren't they? Thanks again for coming, and we hope to see you again.
