The pool is heated, the games barn well equipped and the bedrooms all good sizes. The property is well maintained and clean. I would highly recommend to a friend or relative.

The Gite is amazing literally home from home, and the swimming pool is just fantastic. Karen and Graham are the perfect hosts, on hand if we needed them but gave us the upmost privacy to relax and enjoy our holiday. The only problem was the week went to quick!! We will def be retuning Sam Steve and Diva Dog Judd
