Marie and her family could not have been more welcoming from the moment we arrived. The house is beautifully furnished, surpassing many beautique hotels, with a real sense of history and tradition. We felt like we were somewhere different. Excellent value for money. The surrounding area is also very pretty. A very gentle countryside, combining forest, open pastures, picturesque valleys and hills, but also wide open landscapes, all dotted with stunning French villages and towns. This is true, rural France. People seem to live simple lives, but all with a smile and a wave to offer the seemingly very few visitors.

Everything a home needs this gite has. We really enjoyed staying in this gite and our stay was really relaxing, the surrounding area offered plenty of walks throughout the countryside. The area in general has a lot to offer with a rich history and an owner willing to go the extra mile. Thankyou
