Great cottage. Great location

5 of 5
We are just back from a 2 week stay in this fantastic cottage. We have stayed in Gites all over France for the past 13 years and this is truly the best cottage we have stayed in. The cottage has been thoughtfully restored to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable with everything (and more) that you might need. The pool area was kept immaculate with plenty of loungers both in the sun and shade. The pool was a joy to use. Our hosts Sue and Tod were extremely helpful and hospitable giving advice about the area when asked but at the same time keeping a low profile. Sue even supplied a cold box filled with all the necessary table wear for the night market at a Laparade, which was well worth a visit. We were visited daily by the lovely Vita and Bertie which we loved and they made a great contribution to our holiday. We were blessed with very good weather so were able to sit in the many areas around the cottage and admire the views across he countryside. If we could give more than 5 we would. The Gite and owners come highly recommended .

Beautiful house with exceptional terrace and pool.

5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks with our dog and had a fantastic holiday. The house was even better than the pictures suggested, with the outdoor terrace and the swimming pool being exceptional. The house is well-equipped, with an excellent standard of finish. A major reason for us to choose this property was the security of the garden for our dog. It was completely safe and we could relax, not having to worry about him escaping. The countryside is rural with lovely walks, many by lakes.
