"Wonderful location, facilities and hosts!"

Lovely clean light and airy gite, with everything you would want inside (inc PS3 player and games!!). You need never leave the property if you feel so inclined, because there is a lake to fish on, you can play tennis on a new court, petanque and badminton, and when you are drained you can jump in the pool and relax in your own private garden. There is wildlife to look at and chickens and ducks to feed. Bev and Roland are lovely and extremely a life we envy. Oh, and the area around is worth a visit too.
