There is also a popular english-speaking restaurant in the town. The gite is fully equipped with top quality contents, and is spotless on arrival. The garden to the front is very private, screened from the owners' house next door, but they are available if needed. The private lake is a lovely peaceful setting, not visible from the house, but only a short walk away.
