This was one of the best accommodations we have used in the many years we have driven in France. A remote location which gave us ample opportunity to drive many routes to the coast and villages within easy reach but still within 10mile of a large town and supermarket. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and spacious providing ample space and excellent kitchen to produce your exquisite meals. We all enjoyed our stay and would be more than happy return for a further stay.

The gite has everything you need for a short stay, and is comfortable for 2 people. There is plenty to do if you are prepared to drive!
