The Gite is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and equipped with everything we could possibly need. The pool is lovely and the pool area is quiet and sheltered. The surrounding Beaujolais countryside is stunning with beautifully kept vineyards giving way to the higher forested, hillsides of the Haut Beaujolais. I am a keen cyclist and take my bike with me. There are many fantastic cycle tours for all abilities with cycle paths and very quiet roads with also some challenging hill climbs for those that are more adventurous. As well a cycling the area is great for hiking, visiting chateaus, within easy reach of Lyon and of course the wine tasting. Briar the host is extremely welcoming and has thought of the smallest details to make our holiday a success, her husband Michelle is charming and always keen to have an "aperitif". I could not recommend this accommodation more highly.

We enjoyed cycling, walking and good wine-tasting! Plenty of interesting local places to visit - Cluny, Cormatin, Macon, Tournus - and a lovely place to return and relax. Lydia, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, and her dog Virgule came to say hello at the gate every evening! Our only suggestion would be clearer instructions for finding the cottage when you arrive in the hamlet as it is hard to spot the well which is the marker! We would absolutely recommend 'la petite maison' to others. Merci Lydia pour une bonne vacance! Diana and Andy
