Relaxing Break

5 of 5
Lovely relaxing break in a beautiful location. The Gite was spacious clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay, lots of outside space with amenities for kids. We found the owners very friendly and helpful.Plenty of places to visit close by. We would definitely recommend and are planning to return sometime this year.

Magical location and barn with outstanding hosts

5 of 5
Beautiful setting amongst the French countryside. Perfect location in which to experience a true sense of French life. The Barn was stunning with charming personal touches and attention to detail. Exceptional hosts who created a very warm welcoming ambiance and who put so much of themselves into creating a home from home. It was lovely to enjoy days out but it was equally lovely to come back home to the barn after a day out.
