Superb week

5 of 5
This is the first year that this cottage has been rented out. Helen and Steve have worked hard to renovate the property to a high standard. With 2 beautiful bedrooms and 2 well equipped shower rooms it suited us, 2 couples, perfectly. The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge made a good social area, with no one getting cut off whilst cooking. A good size patio outside with tables and chairs. A lovely sun trap with some shade provided. Wi fi available. Helen and Steve were always available to help in any way if needed and wanted to make sure we had a pleasant stay. They provided us with some produce as we arrived and kept us supplied with eggs for the from their own hens, including quails eggs! This is our second visit to their gites as we stayed in their smaller gite, for 2 people, earlier in the year. We hope to be able to return again.

Le Petit Moulin is THE best place to stay! Simon and Sara couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. There is so much to do in the grounds, even the kids didn't get bored - archery, pool, petanque(boules), kayaks, the list goes on! It is a short drive or a cycle ride to the nearest town where you will find a market two days a week and lots of local attractions within half an hour by car. Can't sing their praises loud enough! Hope to see you both soon. Elizabeth, Steve and the children.xx
