We took up the offer of a breakfast tray to be delivered to us on the first morning as we hadn't had time to get to the shop and two trays loaded with a sumptuous breakfast and fab coffee arrived bang on time. As our stay was at the end of March, the evenings were a little cool outside but not inside when the very efficient log burning stove heated the entire gite - very cosy. You can lay in bed in the morning and look out over a lovely countryside view before getting up for a short walk to the village to the depot du pain. Thanks to Mandy and Ian

The property was clean and had everything we needed and the owner provided a warm welcome. A really lovely setting with shops, restaurants and bars within cycling/walking distance or a short drive. Very friendly locals. Excellent base from which to visit local markets, chateaus and attractions or to enjoy some of the fabulous, well signposted cycle/hiking trails. Of course, the swimming pool was the icing on the cake :)
