“Home away from home”
Reviewed 23 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Spent a wonderful 2 weeks here at the end of July 2012. Martin, Christ and Keanu the dog couldn't have been more welcoming and even supplied us with a hamper of essentials upon our arrival. It's a real home away from home with wifi and TV for the those afraid to leave technology behind and an excellent pool and garden area to sit back and relax.

The gite is set in a small hamlet so you need to drive to get to any shops or other attractions. There are shops and a supermarket in Mirambeau (10 mins away) and Martin & Chris will give you recommendations if you need anything else. The Gite and pool area are fenced in which was great for our dog as it could roam free without getting into too much trouble. There is also a larger field to the rear which would be great for kids wanting to play football or just run around.

All in all a real gem of a place, which we will return too next year.

“A little gem.......”
Reviewed 3 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Second visit here, gite very comfortable everything you need is provided even down to washing up liquid, enclosed terrace a great addition for when the weather not so good. Swimming pool and outside area fantastic, again everything provided that you would need. Chris and Martin owners charming, helpful and knowledgeable of local area. Gite located in tiny hamlet so very quiet and peaceful, only drawback you have to travel to shops restaurants etc but BBQ provided. Only negative thing about gite is very narrow spiral staircase to bedrooms, in the summer the bedrooms get very hot although fans are provided. All in all a little gem of a place, just about perfect.

“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed 4 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Just a perfect place to relax and do nothing or to explore the area. From the initial booking to the holiday, everything is dealt with efficiently and Chris and Martin are very welcoming hosts. There are so many lovely places to visit but it's very difficult to move yourself away from the poolside! Can't wait to return.
