Beautiful gite and wonderful hosts

By The Foster Family on 09-Aug-2020

Just returned from our first stay and we are already planning on coming back next year. Anne and Bruce are great hosts, very welcoming and always helpful but also very respectful of their guests' privacy. The gite is lovely and functional. The pool and terraces are beautiful and the outdoor kitchen and BBQ are really practical for al fresco eating and relaxing. The location is stunning with beautiful bastide towns and chateaux nearby. We cannot wait to visit again! Merci Anne and Bruce

September sunshine!

By Andy and Jill R on 30-Jan-2020

Lovely gite on top of a small hill. Helpful owners at the rear. 3 good sized bedrooms with a particularly pleasant master bedroom on the first floor with en suite. Galley kitchen small but well equipped - dining room is modest, assumes you’re going to be outdoors. Perfect for lunch/late evening dining the foliage covered garden bbq terrace is excellent with stone BBQ, sink and fridge. Fabulous pool area with loungers and parasols. Supermarkets close by Highly recommended and good value!

Jill Cowdry's review

By Jill Cowdry on 25-Sep-2019

As returning guests to this stunning pocket of France we are always blown away by this little gem tucked in the countryside. Extremely comfortable accommodation and a beautiful garden and pool with a lovely barbeque area, Anne and Bruce are charming guests who go out of their way to make your French experience special taking us to the amazing night markets; helping us chose restaurants and offering kayaking excursions. Gorgeous little place to relax around their animals and nature. Bravo!
