"Beautiful, well equipped Gite in peaceful location."
We traveled with our two young children ( 1 & 3) looking for a relaxing break while remaining entertaining for the kids. This holiday ticked both boxes.
The Gite is beautifully restored and is well equipped for adults and children alike. It's located in a peaceful, rural area providing the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area (with which there's plenty to explore).
The owners Gary and Heather were extremely helpful and although we didn't need to see them at any point in the week i'm certain that they'd have done everything in their capacity to help us with anything we required.
I'd definitely recommend the Gite and will be doing so. We are already thinking of when we can next re-visit.
Thanks again and look forward to returning soon.

"beautiful and relaxing, so peaceful."
We don't normally stay in gites on the owners property but we are so glad we did this year.
Heather and Garry made us feel so welcome and were there if we needed them but without being intrusive.
The animals were so entertaining.
We had everything that we could have wished for and will certainly be returning with family next time.
So thank you for a fantastic holiday Heather and Garry.

The site was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, a real home from home. Equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect for peace and tranquility. The owners are onhand if there are any issues or questions. I would highly recommend.

"Home from home, relax"
Everything needed is there, one of the most fully equipped gite we have stayed in.
Even on wet days there are DVDs, PSP games, CDs and board games to play.
Although the owners are on site you would never know it. The privacy is great.
The views from the gite are beautiful, and sun sets stunning.
Sheep and goat present for feeding waste bits too,and cats to play with.
So relaxing, home from home

"All we wanted & more."
A perfect setting for a first class gite, supported by the most friendly & helpful of hosts in Garry & Heather. A compact gite with all the facilities we were looking for. Set in beautiful countryside, this is the perfect base to explore the region or simply relax in the garden and dip in the pool. The whole experience was very good, with nothing to dislike.
