“Peaceful, beautiful location and lovely accommodation. Wish we lived there!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2013

We stayed in the Farmhouse at this very peaceful location. Great to wake up in the morning and hear the birds but no traffic, unlike at home. Just a short stroll up the road to collect croissants and bread for breakfast. We hired bikes from owners Angela and Derek on a couple of days and explored the countryside and nearby villages on the very quiet roads. What a great place to live! Drove to a couple of chateaux and were surprised how few people were around. Our gite was very well equipped and incredibly clean and tidy on our arrival. We had our own garden and had a couple of BBQs during warm evenings. Made good use of the swimming pool which was lovely and warm. Must go back one day!

“Very peaceful area, beautiful property and lovely countryside made this an unforgettable holiday.”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2012

We stayed in The Farmhouse which was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The grounds are very pretty with a lovely indoor swimming pool in the garden room – and it is a very large room! This was great as we had a couple of cooler, cloudy days but it meant we were warm inside and the water felt really warm too. When the sun came out the windows and doors could be opened and we made good use of the sun terrace. Had a couple of BBQ’s in our garden and have happy memories of eating dinner outside, enjoying a bottle of local wine. There is plenty to see and do in the area and we visited several chateaux, all within easy driving distance – very little traffic on the roads so it was a pleasure to drive. Some lovely little villages around to explore and we found some good restaurants, including the local one in easy walking distance. Hired some bikes one day from the friendly and helpful owners, Angela and Derek, and felt very safe on the quiet roads. All in all a great place for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of our normal everyday lives.
