It's always lovely to welcome someone who's new to the area - it often delights our visitors to find that such a beautiful part of France really is unspoiled, and that it's very possible to enjoy a holiday even in July without the hustle & bustle of crowds in such a peaceful environment. We're pleased that you enjoyed the pool as much as you did, and it's no trouble to make sure it's ready for early-morning swimmers - you should be able to enjoy the pool at any time of the day (or night!!) We look forward to your next visit to unwind with us.

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.
