We experienced much of what has been previously described, with a couple of new additions. Mid-October and the temperature outside was getting cool. Roddy was ever so quick, and he invited me to join him in the woodshed. He powers up an unusual table saw, and before I knew it, a large armful of wood was cut to size. I carried a bagful of kindling while Roddy did the heavy lifting. In no time at all a warm fire was heating our gite. We sat in front of the fire sipping wonderful wine provided by Susan and Roddy. We definitely plan to return next year if there will be "room at the inn".

Heated pool and gardens were perfect and villa was well located in a quiet area but near to facilities. Patrick the owner was a pleasure to deal with and Daniel who met us on arrival was very helpful and polite. Plenty of places to visit around this area, we enjoyed the Zoo at La Palmyre and the many lovely beaches along the coast.I wouls recommend this villa and we hope to return.

There was only 2 of us, but there was plenty of space for 4. The gite had everything you could need and the courtyard out the front door is lovely for eating. There are garden areas available, as well as the games area, great for families with young children. The swimming pool is a good size with plenty of sunbeds with cushions and umbrellas. Best of all are the hosts Mark & Margy, very welcoming, helpful and great with suggestions of places to visit and eat. September is a lovely time to visit, a nice temperature and easy to visit the area without any traffic.
