It is a small holding and so there are goats and chickens , which make it very homely. We ate outside all the time and so were able to enjoy the stunning views from the property, which are extraordinarily beautiful. Inside is very cosy, if a bit dark & offering little of the view of the magnificent outdoors. We were very happy to self-cater as the closest restaurant is 8 km away down a narrow windy road! This is also shopping and a bar in the same location. We chose the Gite for the walking and were not at all disappointed as we had some of the best walks ever and would return happily. There are many other activities close by and plenty for children of all ages. The owners were kindness and thoughtfulness personified.

My family and I stayed for two weeks, we really just wanted somewhere we could spend time together and decompress from our busy lives. The grounds are so peaceful and brimming with flora and forna, surrounded by breathtaking views of the countryside. The outside terrace was the perfect space for us to hang out together with a comfy sofa, an outdoor kitchen and a BBQ area. The pool was amazing and provided real respite from the sun. Our hosts, Marielle and Philippe were so welcoming and friendly. They made us feel right at home. They were attentive and also informative in terms of where could visit during our stay. They were even kind enough to share some figs from their orchard with us! We would definitely return to this wonderful place!

The location was perfect, the Villa beautiful and the pool a great asset and much used. We were lucky to be there when the Lavender was out and the colour was amazing. The Villa was well equipped with plenty of towels and linen. Sitting on the verandah in the evening we appreciated the glorious view. Definitely will be returning thank you Andree. Sandra
