If you are looking for a secluded break away from it all then this is the place to stay! The gite was perfect for two people and was very clean on arrival, the pool and outside area were fantastic! We couldn't believe how lucky we were when we arrived and Steve the owner was always very quick to reply and make sure our stay was going to be perfect. Although the gite is rural, their are so many lovely villages not too far away to visit and explore! There is a great all you can eat and drink restaurant in Bardenac - highly recommended if you want rustic, French and friendly service! It was also an hours drive to the centre of Bordeaux if you did want to get out and explore th city a little bit more! It was so peaceful and we never got disturbed once - although sometimes a little gheko would welcome us on the patio area when we woke up in the morning and opened the doors to sit outside for breakfast and a morning cup of tea!! Thank you again for such an amazing stay and we really hope we could return again in the future! Lizzie & Matt.

Clean and well equipped, the hot tub was a great feature. Tom and Rachel, exceptionally generous hosts, made us feel really welcome and were always on hand for help and advice. Superb pool and views over countryside. Already planning a return visit.
