It is a pretty conversion and was also well equipped. The welcome pack of basic foodstuffs was much appreciated. The private garden is very secluded although, due to the weather, we were not able to make much use of the pool which is well maintained. Jan and Janine were helpful but unobtrusive and they supplied us with logs when the weather meant that evenings at the gite were rather cool and the wood burning stove heats the large rooms up well. A car is necessary as there are no shops, bars or restaurants within walking distance but the area itself has interesting walks if you fancy a stroll. A very enjoyable stay

Shani and Paul were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. There was plenty to do and see in the area, also the amenities in the Gite were top notch and helped to make our holiday a really great time.
