This is such a lovely little gite in such a quiet place, we can't wait to go back! Most of the time the only sounds that couId be heard were the birds, the trickling of the stream alongside the gite, the occasional dog bark, and the friendly cooing of the resident hen - the silence was intense. The gite is ideal for two, and had everything we needed, and is nicely furnished. There's table tennis set up, and there are bikes to borrow. It's near enough to the village to walk to the shop, and there's a fabulous restaurant within walking distance too - Le Moulin du Pont with a covered outside eating area right on the bank of the River Dronne. There are other nice walks, including the footpath across the little bridge in the garden which leads to a lane beyond the cottage and the 400 year old oak tree 'Chene de la Peyzie', and the lane then continues past a manor house to the main road where it continues on the other side. The owners live next door and are very nice to have around - they didn't intrude but were there if we needed them. Thank you Laurent and Pegi for letting us stay in your gite - we will be back!
If you are looking for quiet seclusion with beautiful views, large open skies and 'if you are lucky' the potential to see some wonderful wildlife then this is the place for you. All this is, of course, topped off with a great size swimming pool for the whole family to enjoy.
The lovely old 'lived in' and very rustic farmhouse had everything we needed. It was very comfortable and great for our two families which consisted of nine people with an age range from seven to fifty-eight...Sadly I'm the one at the top of that tree :(
A couple of items at the property decided to show their age whilst we were there but the owner and her lovely housekeeper (Hilde) were unrelenting in their attempts to put things right and we couldn't have asked for more than that.
Would I recommend this house?... Yes absolutely...and I very much hope to return as I, in particular, want to see more of the wild boar and other fabulous sites, one of which, although on a miniature scale, was something you would likely only ever see in a David Attenborough documentary...We were very lucky...Just incredible!
