Having stayed in France many times over the years this was our first holiday at Gite de la Philenie and we would certainly re book again without any hesitation. The gite is everything it sets out to be and the location is idyllic. The accommodation provides a very high standard of decoration/furnishings with a fully equipped kitchen and large cooker. We can highly recommend visiting Gite de la Philenie if you are looking for a well equipped gite, finished to the highest standard and situated in a rural location. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about the gite, its location or our stay at Gite de la Philenie.

Enjoyed a two week break combined with house hunting at Gite de la Philenie. It was a good retreat to come back to after a hectic day. Mick was a great host and nothing was to much trouble. The area around the gite is beautiful and tranquile. The gite itself is very nicely decorated and comfortable.

We really had a wonderful time at this fantastic gite. It has everything you need and is a very comfortable place to stay. Mick and Cheryl are perfect hosts and on hand if you need them but leave you to enjoy your holiday in perfect peace and quiet. The area surrounding the gite is beautiful and despite holidaying in this part of France before, we found lots of idyllic villages to explore. We would certainly recommend this gite to anyone and we will be back - thanks Mick and Cheryl for a fantastic holiday!!
