We had a great fortnight at Les Rossignols with our two children (6 & 8). The pool was the biggest attraction for us with the gite being so far from the sea and we made great use of it - super for the kids that it was shallow enough for them to be able to reach the bottom everywhere, really inspired their confidence in the water. The gite itself was spick & span when we arrived and had everything we needed. Pauline's cakes and morning bread deliveries were a real hit with us all. We'd thoroughly recommend Les Rossignols.

Thank you Simon for your lovely review and comments. It really was a pleasure to host you and your family and hope to be able to welcome you back to Les Hirondelles in the future.
We have just spent a lovely week in the smaller of the 2 gites here. The location is really handy as you can get onto the main roads quickly yet you are surrounded by countryside & within easy reach of beautiful canal walks/cycling. Really peaceful. The gite is next to the owners house so they are around if you need assistance with anything. Pauline also makes lovely jams and cakes which you can get from the shared larder along with fresh eggs from their chickens and other useful ingredients you might need but don't want to buy loads of such as oil & spices. Fresh croissants and bread are delivered to your door the first morning and you can request them on other mornings if you wish. There is also a brilliant creperie about a 10 min drive away. The gite has a new kitchen which is well equipped and has a filter coffee machine which is essential in France! The downstairs is open plan also containing the dining table and living room which has a lovely wood burner (perfect for autumn evenings), TV, DVD player, DVD's and books. There is also a games barn attached. The garden is a good size and there is a pool but we didn't use it as it was out of season. The gite is very suitable if you have young children as they have stair gates and equipment available so that you don't need to take your own and there are quite a few toys available for those rainy days, including a rocking horse! Upstairs there are 2 good sized bedrooms and a shared bathroom all nicely decorated & with comfy beds. Both rooms also have blackout blinds so we slept well. The only slight issue is the narrow tread of the stairs as they would be a bit difficult for those with mobility issues, however this is very common in buildings of this age so is not totally unexpected. All in all we had a lovely time and Pauline & Geoff are great hosts. We're looking forward to staying again and booking both gites so that we can take our extended family with us.
