On entering the Gite it was bright, very clean and airy. Modern minimalistic but comfortable furniture; and enough kitchenware to fill the dishwasher with some to spare. We very much enjoyed our stay and would thorouhly recommend this Gite. We wouldn't hesitate to book this Gite again. GIllian & Roland Ogden.
