We were welcomed and shown round the property by the owners brother, M Leclerc, who also introduced us to his fine wine. There are so many things to do and Chateaux etc to visit that it is impossible to do everything in the area in just a week, although this is a very good location to do so. We would be happy to recommend this Gite to anyone interested in staying there.
