Glorious, peaceful and welcoming

5 of 5
Wow! What a wonderful place this is. Shame we couldn't have stayed longer than a week! 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!

Beautiful gives, excellent hosts, fantastic holiday!

We stayed in the converted barn for a week with our dog. 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!

Remote & Wonderful

Very well equipped gite in a fantastic location. Remote, but a bonus for us. Very friendly owners. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Recommended: Visit St. Jean de Cole, Brantome. We needed more than the week that we had. Thankyou Sally & Richard.
