We had the most amazing holiday at your Gite, thank you so much.The children loved the pool and we all found the house to be homely and so well thought out.
...what an absolutely fantastic holiday my family and I had at La Grateliere. The house was fantastic, you had thought of everything. Words really cannot describe how awesome the house is and I would definitely recommend anyone to book.
This is one of the best equipped houses we have stayed in. The pool and play equipment was all well used, as was the 'play den'! Lovely place to relax.
About the Owner
We have owned our home in France for 12 years, before that we holidayed in France with family and friends for a number of years (our experiences have taught us what is important in a holiday home!). We both fell in love with this house and area as soon as we visited and since then we have slowly but surely worked on upgrading and changing the house, although one of our main aims was to try and maintain the original feeling. Over the years we have had a mix of families, couples and groups of friends staying at the house and all have told us that they have really enjoyed their time here and felt that it was a relaxing and wonderful stay. In addition, we have 11 grandchildren who have stayed at the house from babies to teens, which is proof to us that the house is suitable for all ages.
