We really enjoyed our stay at Brian and Lorna's beautiful farmhouse in the peaceful and very scenic countryside at La Contie, a small hamlet near Varen. Our hosts were very friendly and helped us discover the local area which is a hidden gem. We went for walks, visited nearby historic villages, went to markets, cooked meals and also found time to waste time just lazing about on sunny days. Highly recommended.

4 weeks (business trip), but I really enjoyed everything. Brian and Lorna were amazing. Very calm area and so nice. A lot of small typical French village around. One more time, tank you both.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful setting. Brian and Lorna have done an amazing job converting the old buildings in La Contie and were very helpful and welcoming. We need to visit for longer next time!

Step back in time when you enter this fantastic gite. The property has been beautifully restored. Our only regret was that we we not there longer. It was very peaceful with wonderful views. There are some nice restaurants within about ten minutes drive. Brian and Lorna are amazing hosts with a wealth of knowledge of the local area and of the work that went into the restoration of this home. Great place, great people, beautiful area what more could you want!!!!

You have to stay here! And you will not want to leave! This place is magical. Brian and Lorna are adorable and make you want to change things in your life so it has more of a chance to turn out like theirs. Oh, and the room, was perfect. Best shower, view, bed, everything. Don't make the same mistake as we did, stay for more than 1 night.

Adorable petit cottage dans une magnifique ferme rénovée. Il y a beaucoup à faire dans les environs si on aime les promenades, les châteaux forts et les petits villages pittoresques. Brian et Lorna sont très sympathiques et accueillants, et le gîte offre tout ce dont on a besoin pour passer un séjour cosy et reposant. J'y repasserais des vacances avec plaisir !
