Guest's Comment:

"Everyone always hopes that 'this holiday will be the 'best ever'. Happily it has been. The gite is well appointed and just like its hosts Margaret and Brian - wonderfully welcoming. For us this hs been the first year in 'France proper. Off the tourist trail, but not off the beaten track. The garden provided much needed calm and peace in between sorties to Saumur; Futuroscope; Breze; Thenezay; Parthenay and to Cognac . As for the swimming pool like the equation shows - children +water = squeals of delight. The double-bed/sofa was a delight : to put up and to put away....
Food grown, bought and eaten locally, was a real pleasure. Nuff Said!
