We had an excellent stay in Trevor & Barbara's gites, there are two gites on site, and we hired both for a week to give two 'grownups', a toddler and two teenagers a bit more room. The gites were clean and well equipped - more than enough for a short stay. The pool was superb and was tirelessly cleaned every day for our use (thanks T&B!). The location is lovely and peaceful, and about 10 minutes by car to some nearby towns. The closest village is about 20-25 minutes walk down a quiet and pleasant lane - the prize at the end is a lovely meal at La Petite Noisette, recommend you book if you want to go though as I suspect it gets very busy at peak times. Trevor & Barbara are lovely and attentive, and on hand for advice on the local area or any other questions, and put up with the continual chatter from an inquisitive 2 year old! I highly recommend either one or both gites, you'll have a nice stay!

Trevor i jego żona są bardzo miłymi gospodarzami. Komunikatywni i pomocni. Dom zgodny z opisem, czysty i dobrze wyposażony. Spokojna i malownicza okolica. Szczerze polecam.

We came to France nearly five years ago to 'retire' and renovate this property and rent out these two adjoining cottages. We hope to give our guests a great holiday experience.
