What a well equipped and comfortable gite in a beautiful location. We loved relaxing in the garden and there was a great selection of chairs and loungers. Beautiful trees provided shade throughout the day when needed and there was a wonderful view of the forest. The soundtrack was provided by birds and cow bells. The gite is located in a little hamlet a short way away from Charmoille making it feel peaceful but not isolated. There is a great Patisserie/Boulangerie in Belleherbe about 5 minutes drive away.
In the area there is great walking and by car in every direction you drive through beautiful fields, forests, valleys and towns. We went to Neuchâtel lake in Switzerland one day and also the Besancon which is a wonderful town with an ancient fortress.
The gite itself is clearly much loved and looked after by the owner with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, a lovely lounge area and bbq outside.
The owner is helpful and the lady who met us to take the keys at the end speaks little English but was extremely patient with my terrible French and was very charming and kind. (Her son & daughter showed us round the property when we arrived and explained things very well.)
We had a wonderful week and would love to return one day.
What a wonderful week we had in this beautiful place with magnificent views over the river into Switzerland! Sitting outside having dinner with a view that would be difficult to beat in any restaurant.
Sonia and Gus are delightful hosts, accessible as they live on the other side of the property, but never intrusive. We enjoyed spending time with them and practising our French and they their English, which was great fun!
The bells rang out over the valley at 10.30 every morning, reminiscient of the 'Sound of Music', creating a wonderful ambiance. The properties location meant that we could pop across to Switzerland every day, so this was a great (and much less expensive) place from which to explore. Coming back to the apartment at night (except when we stayed at Grindlewald for one evening) was lovely and relaxing.
The apartment is clean, well equipped and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to any one! However the drive is a little steep so wouldn't suit older or infirm people in our opinion!
The local village is adequetly served by all basic ammenities including a well stocked super market complete with fuel station at reasonable prices. Check out the boulangerie/ cafe which we found charming.
All in all a great little apartment with stunning views!
