Stunning area cottage in beautiful setting.

5 of 5
We arrived on a very wet Saturday in march, by the time we got to the area after having sat nav problems and two phones that were not playing ball with navigation for us (probably coz we are dinosaurs )however in the dark we did drive past the cottage. we rang Trish the manager and she expertly guided us by phone to this delightful gem of a gite. The next day we awoke to the beautiful French countryside, what a delight. The cottage itself is well equipped with everything you need on your stay, plenty of DVD's to watch in the evening, the weather was not kind, but nontheless we still ventured out daily our dry day was Friday, beautiful area, friendly people the markets are a must,so different to UK...hope to come again.

Beautiful relaxing holiday in a stunning location

5 of 5
This was our 2nd holiday at the Cottage and it definitely wont be the last. If you are looking for a relaxing time in a beautiful location then I would highly recommend booking Karen's cottage. The Cottage itself is clean, comfortable, beautiful with all the facilities you could ask for. Everything about the Cottage is everything I would want in a holiday home for me and my family. The grounds are stunning and kept my children entertained day in, day out. We didn't go out much as the cottage and sunshine was enough for us, but if you did want to go out there are plenty of things to do. Plus there is a huge supermarket a small drive away that caters for everything you might need. We have fond memories of our holiday's here and cannot wait to make more memories soon.

Great cottage in an idyllic location

5 of 5
The cottage was everything we expected from the photographs and reviews but with some other quirks - like the steps over the beams to access the master bedroom - which only added to the charm. It was clean, tidy, well equipped and cosy - everything one would hope for in a holiday home. The surrounding area is full of things to see and do and we could definitely have spent longer exploring; a week was simply not enough!
