Booked a weeks vacation at Le Bluet gites 13.07.12 for my family and my parents, the gite was lovely and spacious and i could quite happily say was excellent value for money, the hosts, Linda and Maurice Long were on hand to give advice and information of places of interest to explore, they even took us out for the day to a local distillery as it was quite hard to find on our map! They recomended different restaraunts in the area and booked tables for us that we had chosen and gave us thorough directions to get them,In the afternoons that we chose to relax in the gite we had the use of a magnificent pool and in the evenings we spent many hours in the hot tub! On our last evening Linda and Maurice arranged a meal for us and the other family, of "Mules and frittes" which was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for these lovely hosts, the area was beautiful and the hosts were brilliant, have already booked for 2013, thanks Linda and Maurice xxx
