The gite has everything you could need, and the view from the patio is simply stunning, especially in the evening when you can watch a perfect sunset with a glass of local wine. Carolyn and Steve are the perfect hosts, and nothing was too much trouble, they even took the time to book a restaurant for us, which given our appalling French was probably wise! There is plenty to see and do on a cloudy day, and loads of excellent local restaurants. Hopefully we can return in the not too distant future!
