Vivien and Barry met us when we arrived and showed us around the lovely Gite. Everything was perfect. The welcome pack was yummy especially the home made cake. We have stayed in a few properties in France, but this was the best, even the weather was good. Places to visit Chauvigny and Montmorillon.

It is in a very pretty little hamlet.It is so typically French and the verandah is the icing on the cake. Very spacious, lovely big garden and idyllic views. Sitting on the verandah at night, looking at the little church at Vouhet lit up across the valley, (in the silence apart from frogs, crickets and owls, with a large glass of wine), is my idea of heaven. Only for you if you love tranquillity and nature. Lots of beautiful villages to visit and amazing scenery. Can't wait to come again!
