To the front of the cottage there is an attractive courtyard again with lovely views, the

perfect area to enjoy a glass of the local wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A superb, well equipped Gite full of character and charm located in a very interesting region. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. It is obvious that the owners have put a great deal of thought into providing everything a guest would need, including a little Fairy House for children! The Hot Tub was a real bonus and it was a joy to sit out under the stars with a glass of wine in hand! We would recommend this Gite to anyone wishing to have a relaxing 'away from it all' holiday.

A wonderful gite in a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday. The cottage was wonderful - set in beautiful countryside. And to complete everything, Christina and Tom were super: friendly, welcoming and extraordinarily helpful.

If we could give more than five stars, then we would. Absolutely lovely!

A relaxing week

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was spacious and well-equipped with bathrooms. Tom & Chris were very accommodating: there to greet us; a supply of eggs, bread, milk and wine to set us up. The property information was comprehensive and useful. The shopper bikes available were good for a morning pedal to the great local boulangerie. Tom kept us supplied with wood for firing up the lovely hot tub which was much appreciated. The oven failed while we were there but Tom was quick to get that sorted before the next visitors arrived. In the meantime we were happy to use the BBQ facilities. A lovely, quiet spot to relax.

Beautiful gite, perfect getaway in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days in October, and had a fantastic time, it is set in a beautiful location, the gite was very homely, it was a lovely place to stay and not too far from local amenities, we were made to feel very welcome by Kay and Rob who were only a call away if we needed anything, I would definitely recommend to anybody who is looking for a peaceful location in a lovely house, we were very sad to leave!!

We stayed at this property in August and really enjoyed ourselves. The property is very comfortable and well equipped. The surroundings are quiet and relaxing, there is plenty of wildlife to watch out for, especially buzzards and a bird called a hoopoe. There is also a beach about 30 mins drive away, well worth a visit. The hot tub is a real bonus esp in the evening under the stars.

The owners are incredibly friendly helpful and informative....

Well worth the money paid all in all, excellent.

Peaceful stay with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The Croft is a lovely escape from busy life. We've had a very relaxing time here, with beautiful views over the hilly fields - filled with nothing but trees, cows and sheep. The patio and hot-tub are smartly organized, so you get the most privacy and best views from everywhere, both sun-rise and sun-set. The cottage itself had everything you need and has thick walls, so it stays cool on hot days. Thomas and Christina are wonderful hosts. They knew what we needed before we even knew it ourselves. They're also very discrete and allow their guests all the space and privacy in the garden. We can very much recommend the Croft!
