Pleasant stay in quiet area.

4 of 5
We had a lovely holiday in this gite. Tony and Sharon were very helpful with all our questions! The kids loved the indoor pool and we all enjoyed the peace and quiet in the lovely countryside setting.

Beautiful and peaceful

5 of 5
Beautifully presented property, very comfortable, home from home. In a really peaceful position but only ten minutes from the lake. Was a warm week but house didn't overheat. Bedrooms really comfortable, came with bedding and towels (unlike some properties). Kitchen really well equipped and lacked for nothing. Had a nice patio space out front with chairs, table and parasol. Was in shade for breakfast but Sun came round later. Lake vassiviere is superb for kids and adults of all ages. Our two aged 12 and 14 didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back. Went paddle boarding, swimming in lake and on a peddle boat. Kids enjoyed large inflatables in lake at one beach. Road round lake on bikes. Also visited parcour for climbing fun. Keith and Tracy very accommodating owners. Keith took my husband and eldest on a mountain bike ride around lake and they came back buzzing! Stunning location and we will return!
