The gite is spacious, comfortable and beautifully reformed, it felt like home from the first moment. The surrounding countryside is stunning with endless varied walks right from the door. The pretty gite garden is a haven of peace with lovely views. Mary and Kevan are superb hosts, generous, thoughtful and welcoming. We could not have asked for more.
