We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Gite. Everything we needed was to hand & surroundings are beautiful. Yvette has everything you can think and more to explore the local area or just relax & stay by the lovely pool with game & inflatables! The Gite is cosy, clean, and has true French farmhouse character. The kitchen is fully equipped & plenty of seating to relax inside or out. Bathroom was spotless, has a good shower & decent sized bath if you prefer. Yvette was genuinely approachable, friendly & nothing was a hassle to her. She communicated well before &, where needed, during the trip but at the same time we were left to enjoy our own break freely. We would definitely recommend the place to anyone & would stay here again in the future.

Un gîte très bien équipé, tout ce qu'il faut pout une famille du plus petit (bébé) au plus grand (parents). Un endroit très au calme au milieu de la campagne. Des hôtes présents mais tout autant discret. Merci Yvette.

So pleased you had a good time - I suspect you were ready for the break! It was especially great to see the children "getting stuck in" - we hope to provide a mix of fun things to do and relaxation and it's really satisfying when people make the most of it and enjoy their time here. Best wishes to you all, Yvette

Yvette, John, Kenny & Colin are amazing hosts, Yvette truly does think of everything from providing a powerful hair dryer and extension lead for both European and British plugs, to having the fire roaring after a day's traveling. This is the third time we have stayed in this gite and it never disappoints, there is so much information in the folder in the gite about all the local attractions, walks and eateries. The gite is immaculate, with everything from extra pillows and blankets if required to a fully fitted kitchen with everything you would have at home. The log burner is a real treat on a cold evening, with comfy sofas and footstool to relax on after a day out on the tandum which is provided or walking one of the many routed walks available in the gite information folder. Yvette even arranged for us to go to the local mill to buy flour to take home to make bread. Kenny and Colin the friendly fury guys are always available to play fetch with if you have the stamina to keep up with them, but they are so well behaved that they know they are never allowed in the gite and stay strictly within their garden only venturing over when invited. This time we did not use the pool due to the weather and made more use of the log burner instead, but on a previous visit we made full use of the pool and BBQ area and had great fun with the inflatables and sun terrace. We would recommend this gite and cannot speak highly enough about the cleanliness of it and the attention to detail the hosts have provided. We look forward to our next visit very soon, Thank you Yvette, John, Kenny & Colin for making our stay home from home see you soon Susie & Mark X

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour avec 4 amis dans le gîte d'Yvette et son mari. Ce sont des personnes très agréables et chaleureuses. Le lieu comprend leur propre maison ainsi que le gîte, séparés d'à peine quelques mètres. Le coin est isolé en campagne, c'est tout simplement parfait pour trouver le calme et faire des balades dans la nature, au milieu des vaches. Pour vous ravitailler, il y a un commerce dans la ville voisine, à seulement 10 minutes en voiture. Le logement est propre et tout équipé, il n'y a plus qu'à poser ses valises et se relaxer. Les équipements proposés sont variés : piscine (excellemment entretenue), vélos, filet de volleyball/badminton... et le fameux jeu de fléchettes. Petite précision : le logement est accolé à un autre logement (le bâtiment est une maison séparée en deux logements totalement indépendants), donc il est possible que vous croisiez d'autres voyageurs durant votre séjour, ce qui signifie partager la piscine et les équipements sportifs. Autrement, chacun a son propre côté jardin avec table d'extérieur et barbecue. Heureusement, les murs sont très bien isolés donc les deux groupes ne se gêneront aucunement. De plus, il est possible de faire des activités aux alentours si vous prenez la voiture : Vallée des singes, sports aquatiques, accrobranche... Il y a de quoi passer quelques jours très agréables. Yvette est une hôte très à l'écoute et disponible, vous ne pouvez pas être déçu !

Merci Alexandre pour votre avis très précis et informatif et de vos conseils. Vous avez raison, je devrais essayer d’écrire l’annonce en Français pour la faire plus accessible et essayer d’assurer une compréhension améliorée de tous éléments du logement. Que le français écrit est très difficile n'est pas vraiment une bonne excuse. Bien à vous et vos amis.

Friends and family say I'm thoughtful and helpful - I certainly try to be. I believe in respecting others. I love nature and being active, with a particular passion for running.
I have two holiday properties on AirBnB and both are registered as furnished holiday accommodation with my local Tourist Office.
