This year our family of four will be returning to the Olive Tree Cottage for the third year in a row. We stay here with another family of four who use the Canal View Cottage, which is back-to-back with Olive Tree. Both cottages are completely separate and have their own entrance, making this a great place for families and friends...

Management response:

It has been a pleasure welcoming you back each year and we are looking forward to seeing you again in August. In the 5 seasons we have been running the Gites it has been a great pleasure that quite a few families have returned each year. Ann-Marie and Adrian

Our second trip to the gites was once again wonderful. We rented both Olive Tree and Canal View as we took more family along, this is a great way to get extra space without being under each others feet. Swimming pool was hot enough for everyone to get in without moaning despite it being early in the season and Ann-Marie...

Management response:

It was again a pleasure to welcome Tom and his extended family. Having guests like Tom is so easy and our black lab, Inkie, liked welcoming back James. Always ready to welcome you back. Ann-Marie, Adrian and Inkie
