In the heart of the French Countryside.

4 of 5
Set in deep in the lovely French countryside, the gite has plenty of room with everything you need. Denis is very friendly and gave us a guided tour around his organic pig farm. We enjoyed our time there.

An absolutely lovely place to stay. Wonderful owners. 10 stars if I could!

5 of 5
The gite was very comfortable and set in the most beautiful countryside. Peaceful and tranquil. Just the place to get away from the rat race for a while. The photo does not do the gite justice....
