"Summer holiday" Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday in your fantastic gite. The gite is extremely well equipped, very clean and very well presented and decorated. All the additional facilities were just the job - excellent pool, great garden games, BBQ and coals....You have thought of everything and are the perfect hosts. All the extra touches made it special, home made jam, home grown vegetable and such a friendly welcome. Our three young children had a great holiday, as did we. See you next summer.
Recommended for families with young children.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful and relaxing time, the gite was lovely and had everything we needed. Great hosts - you have certainly thought of everything, the little touches mean the most. Thanks again and hope to see you in the future. B & S Families
The gite is beautiful and very well equipped, the pool is fantastic and the kids have really enjoyed themselves, the fact that the pool is indoors and heated has been a brilliant addition as it has meant that on extremely hot days the kids could spend more time in the pool without the fear of sunburn and also when the weather is not so good we have still enjoyed the pool for hours!! thank you for being so helpful - you are the perfect hosts!

"Fantastic family holiday!"
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
The garden is beautiful with gorgeous flowers and wildlife, not to mention the fabulous indoor swimming pool (great whatever the weather) and games barn. There is a place for boules and also a badminton net.
We particularly love the peace and tranquility, time in the pool, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and the homemade jam and homegrown vegetables. Thank you Rob and Sam for all your hard work and for making this summer holiday and last year's so memorable.
"Fantastic family holiday"
We have had another wonderful holiday at Rob and Sam's gite, having stayed for the first time for two weeks last summer. The whole family loved these holidays. The kitchen and lounge are very spacious and well designed. The kitchen is well equipped and all is spotlessly clean upon arrival. The bedrooms are great sizes and comfortable with the layout of bedrooms and bathrooms being perfect for us (a family of five with grandparents joining us for a few days) and would be equally ideal for two families.
Exceeded our expectations....
Fantastic property, the pictures really do not do it justice! We were extremely pleased with our choice - the gite was beautifully clean with a great layout which really suited our family. Having one member of our family in a wheelchair can cause problems but the property was extremely accessible with great bathroom facilities helping to make our stay very relaxing.
The pool and play areas were fantastic and enjoyed by all. The owners were really lovely, we arrived late on a bank holiday and they offered to get provisions in for us which was extremely kind and helpful as all shops were shut.
We would definitely recommend to family, friends and work colleagues and hope to return in the not to distant future........very sad to leave !. Una G 16 June 2015
