"Well appointed gite with a good garden. Nice owners who made us feel very welcome."
This gite was perfectly located for our purposes: a wedding nearby. The gite has a lovely 'French' feel.
Two areas for development: You cannot connect the bedside lights. There is only one bathroom.
Thanks very much for taking the time to review the cottage. We are happy that you had a good holiday and that the wedding went well. Thanks also, for pointing out the problem with the bedside lights, we will make sure that this addressed as soon as possible. I am sorry that the number of bathrooms is not so easily sorted but, we will keep it in mind next time we have some work done.

I am so delighted to know that you all enjoyed your stay at La Poste so much and that the house lived up to your expectations. There are so many activities to try in the immediate area and I'm very glad that you were able to take full advantage of these. The Hotel Chatellenie in the village does offer good quality authentic French cuisine and it's good to know you liked it too. We would be absolutely delighted to welcome you all back next year - I'm sure there are plenty of activities that you didn't have time to try out.
