From our visitors book:
" Thank you so much David & Diana. At short notice in February we needed somewhere to stay for a few weeks, we have had a great week in this magical gite. The hosts David & Diana could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We were here to view properties so had a very busy week, it was a real pleasure to return to the gite each evening. The gite is spotless, well decorated with a great shower and wood burner, this made it warm and cosy. The surrounding countryside, the peaceful and quiet clear night skies and our hosts made this a week will never ever forget, Dave & Tatiana Sandhurst Berkshire"
14th-18th March 2022 - I stayed with David & Diana when I came from the UK to buy and sign for my new home. Gite Magic was a beautiful gite and an oasis of calm with warmth and generosity. I loved coming back to the gite after each day whilst the stress of the outside world continued. At the gite it was peace and tranquility. Thank you David & Diana so much for making my stay one of my most memorable. Paul Thomas Cheltenham"
