Mooi zwembad, lekker veel gras en een trampoline voor onze 3-jarige dochter! Ook is er speelgoed in het huis voor haar aanwezig. Prima huisje met alle benodigdheden en vriendelijke eigenaars. Heel erg genoten in Pageas!!

Our holiday was severely disrupted by family illness back in the U.K. but they were so supportive and helpful. Sadly we were only able to stay a few days but we really loved the cottage and its tranquil garden. The cottage was clean,well equipped and provided everything you could possibly need. We would have no hesitation in recommending the gîte for anybody looking for a fabulous place to stay.
