“Lovely house and garden”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016
2
people found this review helpful

We had a lovely week's stay here in July. The house itself is bright and clean, with a well equipped kitchen. The garden was really spacious and private, with a large patio area and BBQ. The house was a short cycle/drive to a great beach. Overall we had a wonderful time here and would recommend it highly!

“Fantastic Week Away”

Visited this cottage in August and had the most relaxing peaceful holiday. The cottage was fresh, bright and very comfortable. Most evenings were spent sitting on the patio with a glass of wine watching the sun set, bliss!

The hosts Cathy and Howard could not have been more helpful and made excellent recommendations of what to do and where to eat.

Will definitely be back!

“Beautiful part of France, ideal for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

The website photos do not do this property justice. It is on a very quiet road on the edge of the village. Very safe to let kids wander off and explore. Place was spotless, and fully equipped. Owners were very friendly but not obtrusive, and were available onsite to answer any queries. Be aware that this property (Gite 7) is separate from the main gite complex, and requires a short walk on the main road to access the facilities. This suited us, as we wanted peace and quiet. Children under 16 are not allowed in the pool unattended, so you will have to go with them anyway. Nearest shop is about 20mins walk, and is a well stocked mini-market. You won't have to drive far to find something to do. short drive to beach resorts, most of the attractions are less than an hours drive away. Really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend to anyone planning a visit to this region of France.

“Lovely quiet gite, close to coast.”

Lovely clean, compact gite, good to watch sunset from patio, comfortable bed and sufficient kitchen equipment. Garage a bonus for storing our bikes in. Lots of cycling routes and quiet lanes for road bikes too. Local lake a lovely circular walk. Cathy suggested La Potence at La Ste Emillienne, a restaurant near the forest, wonderful meal! You have to go to experience it. Handy for coast and other attractions. Would definitely go again. Thank you very much for a lovely stay. Beverley and Mark.

“Excellent Relaxing Holiday”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed for a week in early September, and had a great time. The gite we stayed in is an easy 5 mins stroll from Dolphin Gites, where we had full use of all of the amentiies - swimming pool, wifi, table tennis, bikes etc.
Cathy and Howard (owners) - are so friendly and helpful, giving us great advice on the area, where to eat, bike paths and so on.
The gite was superb, modern and absolutely spotless - large garden with fixed BBQ - no complaints at all.
Cathy and Howard hosted a 'Aperitif' evening early on in our stay which gave us a great opportunity to meet and mix with the other guests.
We had a superb time and would have no hesitation recommending Dolphin Gites to any of our friends.

We had the Gite which was off site. Was clean and had all we needed. Garden area was large and main complex short walk away. Pool and grounds of complex where great. Lots to do around the area sun or rain. Kids loved it and one had extra French lesson which she enjoyed. Good all-round holiday.
