Lots to see and do in the area, though time is well spent just sitting in the garden, admiring the landscape, and the changing skies.

The owners were lovely, the gite stunning, the hot tub luxurious and the location was perfect for us. We loved exploring the area, and had regular drinks at the bar in Chambon. The gite terrace was great for chilling out by day and star gazing by night. It had everything we needed, including a very comfy bed, and a gorgeous bathroom with walk-in shower. We've stayed in many gites over the years; this was one of the very best. Fabulous!
