"Short break in France"

Good communication via email with owner meant booking process was smooth and without problems. Full details on route to find the gite provided and worked well. Gite is in a very small hamlet but has plenty of parking for the car etc. We enjoyed the stay and had everying we could need for our short stay. Beds comfy and linen clean etc. All the usual equipment so we could cook and relax at the end of a day. A small welcome pack was a nice touch. Our only small issue was once we ran out of hot water in the morning on the third shower - I did enjoy the cool shower ( not!) . Other than that no problems at all. would I go back , no not because of the gite but because there are other places I want to visit. Would i recommend others to stay - yes.
