The gite was great, exceptionally presented and had everything we needed, and more…… Our kids loved the outside space, from the swimming pool to the swings to the sand pit. Our kids loved playing with Clovis & Scarlett, not forgetting Curly! Nathalie is the perfect hostess, simply beyond our expectations. If you are looking to stay around this area, just book with Nathalie you won’t be disappointed.
