A wonderful peaceful and relaxing gite. Would definitely recommend.

5 of 5
The Moulin mill is a perfect location where you can relax or enjoy the many activities in equal measure. We made full use of the outdoor games, even the local tennis court and a bike ride along the country lanes into Melle is recommended. Thank you to Jason and Marie-laure for making us so welcome and loved the duck eggs. Will definitely stay again.

Outstanding beautifully finished relaxing Gite

5 of 5
We booked this Gite to stay whilst we were house hunting in Deux severes. Very reasonabley priced. Great communication and directions from Helen. The pictures do not do the Gite justice. The Gite was much larger than we had invisaged with bright open rooms all decorated to a very high standard with a classic french feel. The outside space was a welcoming surprise for us and our dog with beautiful views, table and chairs as well as sun loungers and a BBQ. The owners had provided wine and essentials and had set a fire in the wood burner for our arrival. Helen and Steve were very welcoming helping us with local amenities and even suppling maps and details of the local vet. We can thourghly recommend Le Petit Toit Gite.
