Peaceful, authentic, home from home
The gite exceeded our expectations, it was well equipped, tidy, clean and very spacious for 2 adults with 2 younger children. The grounds are lovely, the pool wonderful, and the chickens a great additional surprise for 2 excited young children. A very peaceful location and ideally suited for many great days out, to the local zoo, nearby lake with beach, 5 minutes from a wonderful local village with boulangerie, cafes, restaurant, sites to see,10 minutes from larger supermarket, 15 minutes from a larger town with many cafes restaurants, churches, local forest with amazing children's park. There are many, many villages around and the whole area is unspoiled by commercialism. Truly a great place to be and the owners with their family live on site, speak English and are absolutely lovely.
