Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you chose it for two of your summer holidays. I'm glad you found the cottage well presented and that the farmhouse kitchen is roomy enough to prepare and enjoy family meals. It's also good to know that the children made full use of the garden. The rear lawn does provide a huge play space. Dining al fresco on the rear terrace makes it easy for all the family to join in! The cottage is in an outstanding location to visit some of the most beautiful villages and attractions in the area and Angles-sur-l'Anglin is just one of them. We always feel the cottage is a lovely rustic haven to return to after a busy day and are so happy that you enjoyed your stays there. We'd love to have you back.

"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.
