Clean inviting and friendly. We were made welcome from the moment we arrived.
Well positioned suntrap of a gite. Excellent lounging capability on the well kept lawn all day. Amanda and Robin are a font of knowledge for the area and they always have time for you. The gite is cosy and friendly with all the facilities needed and expected for a short or a long stay. We were very sad when our last day quickly rolled up and we had to leave. We will most definitely be back as we feel we now have two very wise friends.
If your after a quiet an comfortable holiday, book it, the only problem is you have to leave
Robin and Amanda are the perfect hosts for your holiday, the property is very well equipped, we had a relaxing holiday, if you like to chill in peace, you can't find a nicer location.
This gite is beautiful. My partner and I decided to have one big holiday before the birth of our first baby boy in October and chose this gite due to it being in a small village and close to amenities. The pool was great; I beat my partner at ping pong and enjoyed time in the sun. BBQ, beautiful garden and a perfect gite. Thank you, Amanda, for a wonderful stay! Hope to see you again!
We loved having you to stay in our gite and thanks for your lovely review.
Good luck with the birth of your son and we do hope you will be back to show him to us.
Beautiful, peaceful place.
This little place was perfect for us. Beautifully kept house, pool and gardens in a very quiet location, secluded but really not too far from town for access to supermarkets, restaurants and so on. First time we had been to this area and we found there was a lot to explore locally, and bigger towns and cities about an hour away. We travelled a bit, but we were very happy to spend most of our time in and around the house. Robin and Amanda were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We would certainly like to go back here again, hopefully to stay longer next time.
Away from it all
Lovely gite in a beautiful area. We couldn't have asked for more!
Great time at Le Petite Maison
Myself and my partner and our dog Badger had a fantastic time, the hospilality from Amanda and Robin was second to none and we loved the area.
Plenty of fantastic villages and towns to visit and it was so peaceful,we will return in the future.
