The gite is immaculate, well presented and has all the amenities you could possibly want. The pool is beautiful and just as well kept as the entire property. The village is typically French with a lovely selection of restaurants, a couple of tabac bars , bakeries and grocery shops. We couldn't ask for more. We look forward to visiting again .
