Our party consisted of grandparents, parents and 4 children age range from 9 to 15. The ground are stunning and peaceful and everything you could ever want for a "get away from it...

Perfect setting; lovely house (although kitchen not ideally equipped for those who like cooking!); and a very helpful welcome from Kim who looks after the property. It was so quiet and peaceful; set in a rural and pretty area ... all in all, some of our party are thinking of re-booking for next year!

Management response:

Thank you so much for the review and we do hope to see you again next year!

We had a great time. The gite is spacious and well equiped. Our teenagers had a lot of fun in the very large and adventurous garden/forrest. We could use the bikes and canoes. We felt very welcome. We will definitely return to have our summer holidays in this gite.

Management response:

Thank you! Hope to see you soon.
