If a relaxing country getaway is what you are after then Les Hirondelles is pretty much a perfect location We found pretty much everything we were looking for at Les Hirondelles. It was a relaxing country get-away that provided us with a real taste of French culture and food. The Gites were very traditional, clean, comfortable and had all the...

That is partly why... more

Helen and Dave were so helpful in guiding us on our travel plans and made us a spectacular dinner reservation which finished with a nice surprise. They were very welcoming and made us... more
