About Erica Foote

We moved here in 2009 and have spent the last 6 years renovating both a barn which is now our home and the house next door which now houses the gite

It is a stunning part of France which we love. We look forward to sharing all that we have learnt about the region with you to ensure an unforgettable holiday experience

Beautiful cosy family friendly cottage near stunning St Benoit du Sault
average rating of 4.6666665 based on 6 reviews

We were made to feel very welcome.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days in this lovely cottage, which allowed us to explore this beautiful valley of La Creuse. The cottage is very comfortable, very clean and very well equipped. The children were thrilled to find favourite DVDs and board games. The owner very kindly presented us with home grown tomatoes, lettuces, aubergines, cucumbers and strawberries. We had a great stay.

Beautiful gite in an idyllic rural setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two young children for a fortnight and it was a perfect and relaxing holiday. The description and pictures of the cottage are accurate - it is very clean and well-maintained and was ideal for our needs. There were games for the children and for the beach, books, a tv, DVDs, wi-fi, bikes to use - everything you could want.

The area is lovely and the gite is in a very tranquil setting and has a large garden with good views over the countryside. We sat out most evenings and admired the starry sky with no light pollution - the children played on the trampoline and had a great time. Picturesque St. Benoit is a few minutes' drive away and we can recommend the beaches at Fougeres, Chambon or Bonnu on Lake Eguzon - a 30 minute drive. The velorail at Chauvigny (an hour's drive) is great energetic fun.

Thanks to the owners, Heather & Steve, who went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home - they couldn't have been nicer. We don't often go back to the same place but we would love to go back here. We can highly recommend it.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped, comfortable, homely cottage, with all the comforts of home. The cottage is surrounded by lovely gardens with plenty of space to sit out and take in the wonderful countryside views. There are stunning lakes nearby, and quiet country lanes which are great for walkers and cyclists (there are a selection of bicycles for guests to use if they wish). The picture perfect medieval town of St Benoit du Sault is about 15 minutes drive, with its ancient articture and lively market. The friendly owners are next door, and are always happy to help if needed. Can't wait to go back soon.

excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette location. Hyper calme, tout est fait pour notre confort et notre tranquillité. Le gîte est très bien équipé, tout est là, rien ne manque. Nous avons fait des balades en vélos (vélos à notre disposition), les paysages sont superbes. Le gîte est très propre, les propriétaires sont d'une totale discrétion et aussi là en cas de problème (le pneu de notre voiture était crevé, le propriétaire a aussitôt été chez le garagiste le plus proche). Vraiment, nous recommandons.
