We’ve just returned from a lovely week stay at Palmerston Gite, in Genneton.
The Gite was much more spacious than the impression we got from the photos and it was very well equipped. The drive and back Garden are enclosed so our Cairn Terrier, Bess, could run around without the possibility of her getting out. The back garden a good size and its also a good sun trap, so it was good to relax with a beer and a bbq on an evening. The gite is very private and the hosts are next door if needed but they respect privacy so you can just get on with enjoying your holiday.
The pool was fantastic and had a child lock gate so no risk of our 6 year old William making a break for it. The pool was also big enough for his 6 inflatables we brought!
Genneton is very well situated for visits to Theme Parks, Historic Cities, Bio Parc and many other places. Parc de la Vallée is only 15 minutes away and it’s great for Kids of all ages.
The Bar in the centre of the Village is a good experience and we enjoyed the monthly Fish and Chip night with the English Expats and the locals. Also, in the village is a football pitch its next to a lake so it was good for the dog to have a run and then a swim (providing there were no fishermen around!)
Sally was a fantastic host who suggested places to visit and she even took care of the Dog when we went out on Days out. I think the dog was more happy to spend time with Sally than she was with us!
In the 7 years of staying at properties from HomeAway we have to say that this is by far our favorite.
We couldn’t fit everything in 7 days so we can’t wait to come back for another stay!
We stayed for 3 weeks and had a excellent time. Beatrice & Philippe (and their dog, Lina) were great hosts: welcoming and accommodating. The gite is part of a 200-year old winery and we were given a wonderful & fascinating tour of the vineyard and cellar. The gite was renovated from an old barn to a high spec accommodation which is clean and comfortable for long or short stay. We love to cook and the gite is well equipped than most that we have been too in the past. It is also a great location to visit numerous chateaux and markets around the region, as well as close to useful amenities; 4-8 mins drive to bakery, butcher, supermarket etc.... The pool is particularly nice especially on a hot day, overlooking a great view. Highly recommended!
