We stayed here as a family of five, 2 adults with 3 children aged 9,8 and 6. It was simply fabulous. The gite was lovely. Plenty of room inside and in abundance outside. We had mixed weather for the week that we were here but it simply did not matter, even with three active children. The pool area was safe and the pool a lovely temperature. Plenty of field space for playing football and a huge trampoline for everyone. Will and Trilby were fabulous hosts, couldn't do enough for you and incredibly informative and helpful regarding the surrounding areas. Tree top climbing and canoeing is a must, which was nearby and some lovely markets on daily all within a short distance. Lovely area for bike rides and picnics. We were all very sad when the week was up, easily could have stayed a lot longer. A truly tranquil, relaxing holiday break where all stresses and worries of British life just melt away. A fabulous place with fabulous hosts. Cannot fault it or them at all. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday x
A wonderful gite, relaxing location.
We had a wonderful relaxing week! It was a beautiful location and the house was perfect for us. The downstairs bedroom kept cool and it was great to have a bathroom upstairs and downstairs. A lovely kitchen and comfortable sitting room.
Outside for us was the real benefit, beautiful views from the outside table, fantastic barbecue and perfect garden for the children to play in. The trampoline was a real hit and our daughter could talk to the horses from the trampoline! The pool was gorgeous and the sun loungers very comfortable for an afternoon snooze! Will and Trilby were very considerate and did not use the pool when we were there, although there was plenty of room to share. The location was great lots to do locally, we especially enjoyed the local kayaking and markets. Nice walks and runs from the house and it was a real bonus being able to borrow bikes. The table tennis was an additional entertainment! A perfect holiday, with considerate and helpful owners on hand. I would really recommend it.
