We came over and stayed for a week in April as a family of two adults and two young children, and it was the perfect stay. The property itself is amazing, SO cozy and homely, we really felt at home. The bedrooms and all very spacious and well equipped, and the mezzanine room is incredible. The kitchen is perfect and has everything you need and more, as is the bathroom, however the highlight for me is the livingroom, its amazing, with a lovely fire, comfy suites and lovely and cozy, perfect. The grounds are incredible, and well maintained with plenty to entertain the little one or adults alike. The surrounding area is lovely and peaceful, even has Ostriches just down the road, and the main town with all you need just a 5 minute drive and bigger town all within 45 minutes or so. All in all an amazing place, and with the welcome recieved by Mark and Sandra it just made it feel even more special...... please dont hesitate, a perfect holiday.

Great location in the countryside, surrounded by many sunflower fields, it was picturesque! The Gite had everything we needed and was very comfortable and homely. The girls particularly loved the Den!

The garden had plenty of space to run around. Swings and hammocks for us to enjoy, and of course the beautiful pool. It was all one depth which meant the grown ups could swim comfortably, and the kids could play safely on the floats etc. There were also other games/puzzles/books provided inside the house, as well as outside games like table tennis etc.

There was also an Ostrich farm nearby. The owner was very proud to show off her Ostriches and to tell you everything you needed to know about them.

Also, another restaurant called GIGI'S was close by, we went on a Saturday evening and enjoyed a lovely meal, and it had a great atmosphere.

Mark and Sandra couldn't have made us feel any more welcome, they really made our holiday. Our girls were really taken with their dogs, Ruby and Daisy, who were so gently and friendly.

All in all, it was a great Gite, and not too far away from the beaches and places of interest. Mark and Sandra were great hosts, and we all had a very relaxing holiday!

Thank you from the Meekums family.

This place is a beautiful quiet spot. Easy to get to from Bordeaux airport and our hosts were great; always on hand to give advice on were to go etc. We weren't lucky with the weather, but I imagine if it was a beautful warm French summer, there would be nothing more relaxing that sitting by the lovely pool the owners have installed and having a drink and chat under the shade they have built with comfy chairs. It's a few miles from the nearest town, so stock up with provisions and spend some lovely evenings enjoying the lovely outdoor dining area. I would definately recommend this place.


Watford, UK July 2017

We stayed for ten days at the end of August. The sun shone everyday so we made full use of the amazing pool and terrace. The kitchen is very well equipped and our hosts even got some shopping in for us before we arrived, which meant we could just get straight on with enjoying ourselves. Mark and Sandra are a fun, friendly couple who work hard to make this a home from home in this most beautiful part of France. Thank you.
