"This traditional, village-centre gite is spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. The galley-style kitchen has all new equipment; the living room sofas are nice and comfortable and there is a large flat-screen TV with Free-sat, plus a decent music system. The bedrooms are spacious, fresh and clean, with generous wardrobe space and quiet air-con units. The tight spiral staircase might be a bit tricky for the less nimble.
The owners were so helpful, and genuinely cared that we enjoyed our stay.
All in all, we highly recommend this gite.”
