It really is a paradise for small children with a climbing frame, swings, slide, sandpit, toys, games and, of course, all the animals! Our daughter insisted on going round each morning and saying good morning to all of them in turn; the horses, the fish, the chickens, the guinea pigs... and of course the dog, Luna, who quickly became her "best friend". The owners, Patrice and Armelle, were incredibly warm and welcoming (despite my horrific French!) and were always ready to help - truly lovely people. The gite was spotless inside, with all the necessary bits and pieces, and the outside areas - particularly the BBQ area - really beautiful. Really can't recommend this place enough - especially if you have young children. Many thanks to Patrice and Armelle for our wonderful stay!
