Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to this area before and we were not disappointed, the location of the gite was fantastic with an spoiled views across the mountains and valley's.

The facilities were brilliant the gite was everything we needed and if we needed anything Michelle was more than happy to help.

What made our holiday so special here was Michelle and her family who made our stay wonderful, so much so we will be back there next summer.

Helpful hint take the directions that Michelle gives and ignore your sat nav 😉

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: We try to make the gites as homely as possible. If there is anything specific a client wishes we will try our best to accommodate. Outside: Gardens 40 hectares of forest. Barbeques, outdoor furniture, Mid september through till third week October is the bram (rutting season) and we have about twenty mature stags here and approx 100 females. Their bellowing echos around the mountains. It is a magnificent time here. The forest is also full of sanglier but they are rarely seen.
