There were 8 of us in total (6 adults and 2 babies) and the house managed us all easily! The master bedroom is simply huge. There are so many places nearby to visit, the week went by far too quickly. Lascaux caves about 1 hr drive - blew me away. The best holiday we have had for a very long time.

Carolyn & Steve were the perfect hosts, with nothing too much trouble. Their vast knowledge of the local area, and guide provided, were great and meant we were able to enjoy all of the what the local area had to offer, including the excellent night market at Villefranche. The gite itself set in stunning quiet countryside, is really well equipped with comfy bed, excellent kitchen & living area, washing machine, BBQ etc. and provided a perfect base to completely relax & unwind. We would love to return one day!

As a group of ten we could ate outdoors nearly every night in the summer house - we drank wine while the kids battled it out for table tennis champ. Plenty of loungers and a lovely warm pool during the day meant that we didn't venture out much. We did go on a couple of walks across the fields and through the forest and in to the village close by for bread and a coffee every morning. The town of St Foy is lovely and the huge market on Saturday morning was great fun. Kids and adults like had a great time, adults especially enjoying long lie ins as a result of the shutters! Lovely.
