The gite has everything necessary and the owners who live just 100 yds away are very helpful. Being at about 2000ft altitude it's a bit cooler than down in the valley and there are no mosquitoes. There is a second gite next to it which was not in use but if available would suit two families holidaying together.

Our gite was pretty, comfortable and well equipped and the outside space was wonderful with beautiful views of the region. Lynne was a thoughtful and considerate host who looked after us well and her dog, Louie made a great playmate for our dog who regularly went round to call for Louie. The surrounding area was lovely too and we really enjoyed our morning stroll to the Boulangerie and afternoon dip in the lake was a real treat. Thanks for everything Lynne, we feel that we made a friend and we will be returning!
