Having stayed in the "House" (gite) for a week at the end of August start of September, I have no hesitation in writing about the place in glowing terms and recommending it highly. It's in a most idyllic setting amidst sleepy, picturesque, picture book French countryside. The property is beautifully maintained with everything you want and is spotlessly clean and comfortable. You can while away the hours reading a book from the well stocked library whilst lazing in the sun or stroll around the extensive grounds enjoying the rural aspect and keeping an eye on the impressive crops of fruits and vegetables. You may even be as lucky as we were and get invited by the neighbours and enjoy wonderful, warm, generous French hospitality in a fantastic setting. Oh - and a chance to meet their horse and donkeys and chickens and dogs as well!!
The "welcome pack" provided on arrival had a great array of food and drink - more than enough to keep you going until you find the shops and supermarkets.
There isn't a lot of whizz bang nightlife in the area - wiell at least not that I could see but that didn't matter because the pace and the place is sleepy and quiet. With such delicious food and drink being produced locally - eating in a quiet setting with friends seemed to be the norm. The surrounding towns and villages are worth a visit - especially on their respective market days and if you can resist the delicious produce sold therein - you're a better man than me!!
It's worth visiting Lourdes for the experience it is and otherwise exploring and finding quaint little places with views and interesting churches is very much the order of the day - enjoy it!!
I think this is a lovely place to stay and I think of anyone planning to visit with a tinge of envy - I want to go back!!!!
