Sunny seclusion, with all mod cons!

  • 4 of 5

We chose Chez Bouton , for the wi fi, and pool, and individuality of the gites. We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful area surrounding the properties ,and the warm reception from David and Jane; they could not have been more helpful or kind, providing all we needed, and a relaxing atmosphere in which to unwind, which we did. The gite was well designed, though an additional back garden would have made it perfect. The other families were a huge bonus as we spent many warm evenings drinking wine together , exchanging experiences, together with our hosts! The area is interesting and varied, and we returned home relaxed and refreshed, and wanting to go back! Thanks Jane and David for a memorable holiday.

Owner's Response: We're very happy that Amanda so much enjoyed her stay here. With 5 gites Bruetgites is an ideal place to socialise just as much or as little as you like - (for more privacy we do have other gites with gardens to the rear as well as the front). We hope to see you again soon. David and Jane.
