Interaction with guests
As the Property owners we live in France full time. We live on site and are happy to help with getting the best from your holiday in France.

David and his family moved to France in 2004. They found an old French manor house with surrounding outbuilds which had been empty for 35 years. He renovated our home and the on site gites and opened for bussiness with 4 gites in 2006, opening a further 2 gites in 2007 and has recently finished renovating gite number 7.

Our gite complex is perfect for families and friends holidaying together and in the summer we enjoy the buzz and chatter of families enjoying themselves around the courtyard and in the pool and gardens.
