From the communication from the owners prior arrival to sadly leaving for home we had an amazing experience. We eventually got there quite late to find a fantastic welcome pack of essentials and the odd luxury (local fiz and goats cheese from the goats on site). The gite is very well equipped with not only English television but also broadband if you need to communicate. Alternatively there is a supply of good books, DVD's and views to die for if you just want to forget about home for a while. Karen and Tim the owners had good local knowledge and were always happy to help if required. Our children loved the animals around and about the Gite and the farm next door and and the pool. He loved the peace and quite (when the kids finally went to bed) and of course the wine, food and the Frenchness (not sure this is a word) of the whole area. In short our best week in France so far.

The property certainly did not disappoint, being extremely comfortable and well equipped. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful with lots to do. The kids loved the pool, you could walk in the woods to Bourbon Lancy, cycle or play table tennis. It was possible for everyone to find their own space after which we tended to meet up on the terrace in the evening to enjoy the sunsets. Nothing was too much trouble for Elisabeth who arranged a chef enabling us to enjoy some memorable family meals in Le Vigneau's grand dining room . Le Vigneau provided the perfect environment for a fantastic family holiday- thanks so much Elisabeth!
