The gite is beautiful in every way and the facilities are excellent. We particularly loved the day beds by the pool and the stunning views over the valley. Imme and her family are so welcoming too! If I could suggest any possible improvement it would be ceiling fans in the bedrooms which got a bit hot for us at night. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Elli & family

Accommodation is one of the best we stayed - and we are travelling a lot. Believe us. The house is top of the top. The surroundings are worth of your time and the view from the place speaks much more that my words. We (17 persons) enjoyed the welcome of the Farm, the atmosphere and the cosiness, swimming pool and the interior yard. There's so much to see around but The Old Silk Farm does not let you - to good to stay not wandering around ;) Thanks for the owners for creating such a cosy atmosphere. Respect !

The facilities are beyond the usual expectations with a lot of little touches like a supply of herb, salt, oil, tea and coffee in the kitchen, dressing gowns in the bathroom and extra blankets and cushions. The bed was extremely comfortable and the living room was a relaxing and well appointed space. The kitchen had everything that you will need if you wish to cook a full meal. The terrace has the sun from about 2pm allowing a morning spent in the shade and an afternoon spent in the jacuzzi! Tom and Alice, who own the gîte, welcomed us like old friends and were able to give us details and recommendation of near by restaurants, shops and attractions. We had contact details for them and nothing was too much trouble. The gîte is a short walk along a foot path to the village, where there is a good range of restaurants. There is also a small shop selling essentials like bread, cheese and wine! The closest super market is in the next town and the owners will be happy to provide directions. There is also parking which makes this a good spot to use as a base if you wish to explore the area, however we spent most of our time on the terrace enjoying the sun and the view. I recommend Le 180 without hesitation.
