The pictures and other reviews sold it to us and it certainly didn't disappoint. Set in amongst woodland and rolling fields with lush views, we loved the 3 outdoor seating areas and the bench down a path for watching the stunning sunsets from. The cottage is spacious, the kitchen well equipped and the decor tasteful and matching the beauty of the building. We stayed in the summer but with the log burners it would be super cosy in winter too. The hosts (and little dog) were very friendly and made us feel welcome. A tranquil rural setting but lots of places are within driving distance - bring swimming costumes for the nearby lake beach! Can't recommend highly enough, and such good value for money. We will be back!

The owners have thoughtfully gone to a lot of trouble to leave a very comprehensive book with a full list of things to do in the area of which there are many. Many historical chateaux's, canoeing, walking, many local towns, incredible restaurants, etc. They have also provided "at home" activities for all the family - games, videos, books etc not to mention the most beautiful pool. This is truly spectacular place to stay. The lay out provides a single level house with two bedrooms - ideal for grandparents or even the teenagers, and a two story house for the family. Perfect for a multi generation family or two families. could not recommend it highly enough - plus, and this is a big plus in my experience of renting holiday accommodation - the owners responded to all of my questions about the property and location - they speak English and French. PERFECT!

We loved the renovation of the barn, really comfortable, clean and had everything you needed. The pool was fantastic to cool off on hot days, and Phil and Cyndi even had a paddling pool for the dog too! There was lots to do around the gites such as walking, exploring towns and eating out. Phil and Cyndi made some excellent recommendations for things for us to do and were great hosts, attentive when we needed them but definitely gave us space to relax on our own. Would definitely come here again and recommend it to others!
