"Getting away from it all, superb value"

We had a fantastic week at Le Petit St Jean. It's peaceful, quiet and set amongst tranquil farmland, yet not too far from town and lots of places that are well worth visiting. The gite is spacious and really well equipped, and just perfect for lounging around in the hot weather, with a neat garden to sit out in.
As other reviewers say, David and Cynthia's hospitality is excellent. They make you feel so welcome, and are fantastic guides to the local area.
We found it incredibly good value, and will certainly be going back in the future.

looking forward to seeing you again. ~Thanks for taking the time to write review
