Despite there not being many photos of the house before our stay I was confident that Shelly's description would not let us down and I was right. Photos would not do it justice, it has to be seen to be believed. It is described in the literature as a home from home and it was always a pleasure to come back to. Shelley has thought very carefully about what guests would like/need and there are many little extras that made our time there very comfortable. It is in a central location for everything, the station, the canal and The Cite but was still quiet at night. The tourist office is excellent and would also recommend the market on Saturday morning and the bike hire. Thank you Shelley and Simon, and also Fiona who presents the house beautifully.

Everything we needed for a family break with our two daughters (10&12) Pool was great, kids enjoyed plenty of swimming whilst my partner and I could relax by the pool in the lovely sunshine. Gite is beautifully decorated, well equipped and plenty of space. Great location, super market close by car, short walk to the bolengerie... amazing pain au raisin! Lovely restaurants in Trebes if you don't want to cook. Adrian and Anne -Marie are great hosts, making you feel so welcome but are not intrusive. Inkey the dog very chilled and layed back, Sky the kitten was great fun .... cuddling up on the sofa in the evening! Wonderful stay, had an amazing time.
