Saint Loup, a few minutes drive away has shops and a market. The `Maison du Maurice` gite, was very clean, tidy and tastefully furnished throughout.The location is very quiet and rural. The pool was a great bonus. Richard,the owner, was very friendly and helpful, giving us lots of advice and local information. He also provides a range of excellent home made and local produce like jams and meats. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend `Bois Mort` to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in the french countryside . We hope to return. Thank you Richard. Regards Andy, Annie and Kate

It has all you need for a comfortable stay, even Sky TV! It was so peaceful with a beautiful garden and plunge pool which was great to have as we had fantastic weather during our stay. It is amazing for star gazing too. Joy and Sid were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. They were very helpful when we needed them. We would highly recommend it.
