Lovely Gite in a beautiful part of France

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this clean, comfortable and well equipped Gite. The owners David and Gill were very welcoming and gave us lots of helpful tips and advice on the local area as well as milk, butter, tea, coffee, wine and homemade bread on arrival, that was very much appreciated. The area is quiet and peaceful with lovely walks around the local villages. Chauvigny, Le Dorat, Lac de Saint-Pardoux, and especially Poitiers are well worth a visit. Our children, aged 10 and 12, really enjoyed Crocodile Planet, Les Géants du Ciel and Les Loups de Chabrières. We would definitely return to this Gite if we were in the area again.

Just what I needed. Reasonable price, newly equipped and very well located.

  • 4 of 5

David and Jill Brocking were very helpful and welcoming. We arrived to milk, bread and water in the fridge which were extremely well received after a long, hot journey.

The gite was very attractive-having a typical old exterior with the interior all newly furbished. The living room furniture was very comfortable and there was everything you need in the kitchen.

The nearby towns of Le Dorat and Bellac are extremely interesting and attractive. There are markets, supermarkets and restaurants in the vicinity.

I wish Dave and Jill well in their venture!

Parfait / Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est conforme à la description: bien équipé, chaleureux et propre. On s'y sent très bien.

Tout était prévu pour le petit-déjeuner et une bouteille de rosé était au frais. Les propriétaires sont charmants, serviables mais discrets.

Au calme, avec d'agréables promenades faisables à pied avec des bois et des chemins le long de la rivière, le gîte permet aussi de visiter la région en passant par des lieux connus ou moins connus mais charmants. Une expérience très plaisante à renouveler !

Well equiped, very cosy, this gîte is very pleasant. We felt at home !

Everything was prepared for the first b'fast and a Rosé wine bottle was waiting in the fridge ! The owners are very nice and helping.

In a quiet site, you can walk from the gîte and also visit many beautiful places (famous or not). A place to stay for a couple, for a family ... and to come back.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Acceuil tres chaleureux, avec des petites attentions très sympathique pour notre arrivée, gîte neuf et tres propre, très bon rapport qualité prix. Il manque juste un rideau occultant pour le velux de la chambre enfant. Je conseillerai ce gîte et j'y reviendrai. Merci, thank you 😊
