Beautiful and Charming

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night not really knowing what to expect. All I can say is WOW! What an amazing place this is. The pictures on here certainly do not do it justice! We went as two families and had such a fantastic time and made memories that will be cherished forever. The swimming pool outside is perfect for children as well as adults and nice and warm. The hot tub is also great. The views to the back of the property are beautiful. Open fields for as far as the eye can see and beautiful to sit out in the evening. The barn has lots of things to do inside such as table tennis, darts and there are numerous CD's and DVD's. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with an extra fridge and freezer in the barn along with washing machine etc. The clay pizza oven outside is also amazing. There are 3 bathrooms and a downstairs toilet. Lots of towels for you to use. Beds are really comfy also. Nicole the lady who looks after the gite is lovely. She brought is French sticks the day after we arrived and there was also wine in the fridge on arrival. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful gite to anyone.
