Holiday Cottage with outdoor swimming pool and astro tennis court.
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Clean, tidy, quite,and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We hoped the cottage would be as good as seen on the web site ,and it was even more, the kitchen had everything you could wish for, and they all worked.The outside space was private, and the pool was worth coming back for after a day out.

A very highly reccommended place to stay.

Excellent value gite in beautiful location within easy reach of places of interest.

  • 5 of 5

Finding the property at night was problematic but once settled in it was fantastic. Being slightly critical, it would have been nice to have tea / coffee facilities available upon arrival but the wine was appreciated. I was expecting to have the use of WiFi whilst there but neither of us were able to get access, having said that it proved nice not to have the distractions of home.

I will happily recommend this property to anyone looking for a well-equipped gite in a central location with the added bonus of swimming pool and tennis court.
