The cottage is cosy and comfortable with good facilities and a lovely terrace. The owners live next door and couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations, directions and local knowledge. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property.

From the communication from the owners prior arrival to sadly leaving for home we had an amazing experience. We eventually got there quite late to find a fantastic welcome pack of essentials and the odd luxury (local fiz and goats cheese from the goats on site). The gite is very well equipped with not only English television but also broadband if you need to communicate. Alternatively there is a supply of good books, DVD's and views to die for if you just want to forget about home for a while. Karen and Tim the owners had good local knowledge and were always happy to help if required. Our children loved the animals around and about the Gite and the farm next door and and the pool. He loved the peace and quite (when the kids finally went to bed) and of course the wine, food and the Frenchness (not sure this is a word) of the whole area. In short our best week in France so far.
