We arrived at the gite feeling a bit stressed and cold. However, we were greeted by warm smiles and shown around. There was a lovely fire to cheer us up and the gite is beautifully clean and very well equipped. Val and Jill were very helpful and managed to be around to help if needed, but not in the least obtrusive. We have two large dogs and the secure garden was an absolute blessing. All in all, despite the November weather, we had a wonderful time.
The cottage was beautifully situated, guiet, peacfull, and we had fun with the cats! Val and Jill welcomed us then left us alone to enjoy our stay but if we needed help they were immediately available. Highly recommended.
After a strenuous drive from Lyon of nearly 7 hours, we arrived late and tired. Both Val and Jills welcome and support was natural and comforting.
The gite is spacious ,warm and has everything you need to use as a base to discover the quiet rural side of France. In fact it has a farm vibe and the delightful welcome from both Harley the dog and Poive the tabby cat will stay with us for many years. Add to this the most comfortable bed we have experienced on our trip and he cosines of a log fire at night were added benefits. Very conveniently placed to Le Dorat for sightseeing and buying provisionas, we highly reccommend the gite for somewhere to wind down relax and to rejunivate .
Thank you girls for the experience.
What a little bit of paradise Jill and Val have here. Stayed at Fanfreda for 9 nights. Beautiful gite, nice and clean had everything one needed. Bedroom spacious, no TV but stacks of books and video to watch. No need for TV anyway, so much to see. Nice welcome pack was provided, lots to do in yhe area. We bbq nearly every night and sat outside till late. It easy very very hot beginning September. Val and Jill were such lovely ladies, lots of knowledge of the area. Montmorillon just 20 min up the road market of about 50 stores on Wed. Go early, get there for 8am. Free parking. Chauvigny market about 45 min, is the best though 160 stalls on Saturday. Just fabulous, get there early as well as this town gets so busy. We were there about 7.45 lucky to get parking just by the market as we came into the town centre. Lussac-les-Églises is just up the road from the gite, there a is a SPA for fresh baked baguettes. Closes at 12.30 till 2pm I think. Fanfreda is actually in Peu Moustiers. I've put photos below, you pass the sign that says turn left to Lussac-les-Églises go straight on about 100m then it's a tiny road to your right, go up the road turn right and follow the sign to the house and gite. But for anyone that loves the peace and quiet and the country side then this is the gite for you. Thanks Val, Jill so nice to have met you, wish you all the best and hopefully we will see you again.
Wonderful comfortable gite, with everything you need, and the added bonus of the Tour de France passing close by. The owners are available to help with any queries but leave you alone to enjoy the peace an quiet when you want it. The perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle, but within reach of the towns and cities of the area if you get withdrawal symptoms!
Lovely Home from home with a French feel.Everything item you could need is in the house.
Fantastic setting,very helpful owners close by,but also let you enjoy your time.
Villages around the area are spectacular,plenty to see and do.
It may look quite small in the photographs but this little gem is deceptive. We booked a last minute break and I chose this property more based on cost and area. We didn't expect too much but we were very pleasantly surprised. After driving through the night we were allowed to arrive early as there were no outgoing tenants. On arrival we were presented with 6 freshly laid eggs for out breakfast. The owners were very friendly and helpful, both in emails prior to arrival and when we got there. After introductions and instructions on how to get the best out of the bite, the owners become discrete and leave you to enjoy your stay. It is reassuring though that they are right next door if you need anything. Inside the bite, there is everything you need to enjoy your stay. You can cook a meal or enjoy one ready made. The bedroom/sitting room upstairs is delightfully cosy with views of the sunsets. This give is family friendly as well as a gret retreat for couples who just want to get away from it all and relax.
