Superb gite in an idyllic setting in the beautiful French countryside!

5 of 5
From first contact with the owners we knew we had found something special. Great communication and so helpful. On arrival we were greeted with a nice welcome pack and friendly introductions. The gite is perfect for getting away from it all yet close enough to all the major sights, so makes an ideal spot to explore this beautiful part of the world. Inside everything you could need is provided for and in excellent condition. The owners live next door and are on hand if you want them but leave you with total privacy if not. The best stay yet. Can't wait to be back soon!!
