Dave and Wendy have thought of everything and ensured our holiday was perfect in every way. The gite is in a fabulous hilltop position with stunning views from the gite, huge fully enclosed garden and luxurious (heated!) pool and surrounding terrace. There are fabulous walks from the door and surrounding areas. The nearest town of Villebois Lavallette is lovely with a hilltop chateau that can be seen from the gite. It also has a great super market and it's only a short drive away. There's also great markets and Brocante markets in the surrounding towns. It was wonderful to have our 2 weeks here with our 2 dogs and they loved having Archie and Eric as great playmates and knowing they couldn't escape! Dave and Wendy have everything right here and also great company if you want company. The huge skies, rolling countryside views and stunning sunsets are really special. The you both and we will see you again as soon as possible!
