“Beautiful and peaceful setting”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our hosts Heather and Trevor were extremely welcoming and very helpful with our needs during our stay. The Gite was very spacious, clean and tidy and certainly the best holiday home we have ever used. Beautiful surroundings and very peaceful. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this Gite.

“Home from Home with superb hosts”
Reviewed 7 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Having stayed in a large number of gites over the years this has got to be one of best. A real home from home with everything provided. The gite is extremely well set up with lovely views over the garden and countryside. Heather and Trevor are fantastic hosts and we felt we have made some real friends there. We can't wait to return.
