“What a beautiful place!!” On arrival we were welcomed with milk, bread, preserves and a lovely bottle of wine, which was gratefully received after the drive from Calais. Also, the owners had put a comprehensive visitors folder together to make sure we had all the information required to help us get the best out of the area and attractions.
The gite was extremely clean and is very spacious inside with 2 good size bedrooms both with an ensuite, the kids loved having their own bathroom!! There is a lovely combined living & kitchen area, with all the mod cons you need for a self-catering holiday........having a dishwasher and washing machine was a real bonus.
The gite is located next to the owners beautiful manor house, lake and swimming pool. We spent most evenings cooking on the outside BBQ and enjoying a glass of wine whilst overlooking the fish and wildlife at the lake. The swimming pool is located in the grounds of the house, and is where we spent most of the sunny days, and being a salt water pool meant the children could spend hours splashing around without getting sore eyes.
The gite is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is only a 5 minute drive away from the nearest town of La Chapelle, which has a supermarket and a lovely boulangerie for fresh bread and croissants. The area provides many attractions for all ages, from quiet medieval villages to larger towns, all within an hours drive. There were so many places to visit, but not enough days, so will be definitely booking again for next year. We would highly recommend this gite for families and people wishing to get away from it all and can’t wait to return.
