Everything has been thought of to make a relaxing stay. The outside area was also excellent - comfortable lounge furniture and barbeque together with pretty gardens and of course the superb pool. Maggie and Alan were excellent hosts and made us feel like welcome guests. We had a fantastic stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this gite to anyone.

It's set in a stunning location and it's grounds are spectacular. The front area has a beautiful bistro table so you can sit in the sun until early evening. The rear courtyard is perfect for dining al fresco until late evening. Complete with barbecue area, large canopy and a hot tub your evening is complete. The area at the pool is just perfect. Clean and well maintained surrounded by stunning countryside makes your morning swim a memorable experience. A shaded terrace is most welcome early afternoon when the local temperature can reach over 30* The interior of the house is like 'home from home'. Immaculately kept and up to date commodities. Plenty of space for all your family and friends. TV room to relax of an evening, a cosy fire room and a dining area big enough for everyone to dine together chatting about their day. The owners are extremely approachable and friendly. Prompt and professional response all the time. I can't tell you enough how good this property is, I can't wait to return in September!
