Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised by the overall high standard of not only the Gite and grounds but also the equipment for a self catering holiday., everything has been thought of.

We loved the tranquility of the place it just made you relax as soon as you arrived. We also loved the thought behind the welcome pack, including the homemade cake, honey, and eggs straight from tim and juliettes hens. Tim's home grown tomatoes and cucumbers were most welcome. We rarely return to a place, but we are booked and are looking forward to coming back next year.

high end equipped and clean, charming

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with the extremely warm welcome we got when we arrived, with a big delicious feast. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The place was very clean and charming, newly decorated with high end equipments. The wood burner kept us all warm with a cosy atmosphere and the bedrooms were all lovely. The only complaint would be the lack of wifi in the house during our stay. Fortunately we could still connect at the main house and I hear that an extension is soon to be installed. I will definitely recommend this house to others and will hopefully come for another stay in the future.

Superbe gîte au grand calme, excellent accueil

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est parfaitement équipé, conformément au descriptif sur le site. Tim et Juliet sont extrêmement accueillants et attentifs à ce que nous ne manquions de rien. Gîte impeccable. Nous avons passé 5 jours très agréables et reposants avec nos 2 filles de 5 ans et 7 mois, entre le repos dans la maison, le jardin et la piscine, ou des visites à Nohant (maison de Georges Sand), Sainte Sévère sur Indre (maison de jour de fête) ou le marché de La Châtre. Nous recommandons vivement ce gîte !!!

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Si vous cherchez un endroit calme et reposant, le gite Barbelle est fait pour vous : tout autour, de beaux paysages campagnards qui s'étendent à perte de vue et invitent à la promenade. La maison est très agréable et les enfants ont bien profité du jardin et de la piscine. Juliet et Tim sont très accueillants et très à l'écoute de leurs hôtes tout en restant discrets.

Merci encore pour votre gentillesse et vos produits "faits maison". Tout la famille a apprécié.

Une adresse à recommander.

Un petit coin de Paradis !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine au calme, dans ce gîte spacieux, idéal pour un couple avec 2 ou 3 enfants, très bien équipé, très propre. La propriété est très bien entretenue.

Encore un grand merci à Juliet et Tim pour leur accueil chaleureux, leur gentillesse.

On a rayonné autour (30-45 minutes maximum) et avons passé de très beaux moments (maison de Georges Sand, le château de Sarzay, Gargilesse-Dampierre ...).

Un superbe endroit, nous y retournerons avec plaisir.
