Quaint rural Gite with everything you could need for a comfortable break.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Lynn and Tom, perfect little hideaway, very comfortable and offered everything, even for two teenage girls (loved the selection of DVD's) Even had some sun for the oldies to relax in the garden on the loungers. Great space, comfortable beds, and and kitchen allowed enough space with an extendable table to host dinner for friends to come a join us. The surprise was the welcome gift from Lynn, bread, butter, eggs, jam, plus soap, shampoo/conditioner and and did I mention the bottle of wine and orange juice for the girls. Perfect.

An absolutely lovely place to stay. Wonderful owners. 10 stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

The gite was very comfortable and set in the most beautiful countryside. Peaceful and tranquil.

Just the place to get away from the rat race for a while.

The photo does not do the gite justice....

Comfortable gîte

  • 5 of 5

This was an extremely comfortable place to stay. A little remote, but everything you need is provided. Lynn and Tom couldn't be nicer - they are great hosts and live just next door. The château de Villemonteix is a must see and is close, as well as Aubusson and Moutier d'Ahun which are worth a visit. Highly recommended!

Well equipped rural gite

  • 5 of 5

Owners were friendly and helpful. The gite was spacious, very well equipped and clean. It was pleasant to relax on lounges under a large apple tree near the terrace. Excellent accommodation.
