We booked both gites in March for a family reunion and had a lovely time. The gites were warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. The new owners took over a few months ago and were very nice, and very helpful. They have also updated the internet and the connection was great. I'd definitely recommend this place - There are plenty of shops and hypermarkets around, and we even had time to go across the border into Belgium to stock up on cheap cigs and wine! We also managed to BBQ on the patio on a rare sunny day in March which the kids loved .The meat here is such good quality and the fresh prawns such good value. We enjoyed the village bar on one of our nights and will definitely be booking again!

Lovely house. Clean and tidy with plenty for the 2 kids to do despite in raining every second day which I was assured wasn't the norm. Ended the holiday at the village's Bastille Day celebrations.
All in a good time had by all.

From arrival to departure we have no complaints about this gite. The hosts were extremely helpful and there if you wanted anything. The gite is equipped with everything and the hosts had left fresh bread, wine and cheese. The lounge area is a little small for 6 adults but the bedrooms are a good size. Xtra facilities are in abundance but did not make full use of them - table tennis, darts, table football, pool to name a few. Would recommend to families although it is a little quiet if you are looking for a bar or nightlife. The bar in the vilage was closed when we got there at 9.30 pm on a Saturday night
