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.

The facilities are excellent with a large outside dining area with a built in BBQ right next to the pool. You could easily spend every day just eating and swimming and never leave the house at all. We did, of course, leave the house to enjoy the fantastic beaches which are within walking distance and are great for adults and children alike. Our 3 children, aged three, six and eight had a great time swimming and building sandcastles. The local restaurants are all good and the people are really friendly which is not always the case in some areas. Mr & Mrs Quesson live below the property and are extremely helpful with any issues and really care about your enjoyment of their lovely house. We have had holidays on the west coast of France before but this one was by far the best.
