We have been thinking about how best to accommodate families and as a result are undertaking a major revamp of our gite during the winter 2012/13. Firstly we are adding a second bedroom, which will increase floorspace, storage space and double the number of bedspaces. Also, an extra French window will give additional natural light and ventilation. We are also redesigning the living area, installing new furniture, UK satellite TV and undertaking a complete redecoration. We think these changes, together with our much-praised pool area and two acres of grounds, will provide an ideal combination for families, and indeed, all our guests.
