Susie, Roddy and their children are so hospitable and cannot do enough for you to ensure you have a relaxing and interesting break, without being intrusive or overbearing. Their suggestions for places to visit on the coast and where to kayak were spot on, and we spent a couple of really enjoyable warm evenings eating and drinking with the family outside on their patio, and were made to feel very welcome. The gite is very classy, with beautiful original paintings and finishing touches that really make this place feel like a luxurious home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment you could need and the provision of drinks and bread, butter, fruit etc on arrival is very welcome. The owners' two dogs, Evee and Bentley, are great characters and are very friendly. The chickens were also entertaining and their fresh eggs are delicious. We cannot recommend this gite highly enough, it is ideally located within a short drive to interesting and historical towns and also only about 30 minutes from the most beautiful coastline. We will definitely return and cannot recommend the gite highly enough if you want a bit of luxury, with the option for relaxation in beautiful gardens and the ability to visit interesting local places, all at a fantastic rental price.

Compact but very well designed and equipped with all that we needed for an enjoyable holiday. Lionel and Angelique were very welcoming and helpful, getting back to us quickly when we had problems accessing wi fi. The location was ideal, just across the road from the beach and within easy walking distance to the centre of Ronce les Bains with it's shops and restaurants. Loved the roof terrace and private balcony where we could sit and watch the world go by.
