  • 5 of 5

"La Petite Maison was an ideal gite for our stay. It was situated in a quiet location. The amenities were first rate and the owner was helpful in an unobtrusive way. We used the bicycles to explore the immediate vicinity and availed ourselves of the short ride into the village for breakfast pastries. Our stay was most enjoyable."

  • 5 of 5

"Set in peaceful, rural surroundings, this well-equipped accommodation i ideal for a couple to enjoy different types of holiday. The facilities enable a person to relax completely but the gite is well-placed for sctivity selection from a diverse range (eg history, geology, nature, etc). We combined relaxation with discovering the Aveyron.

The owners are very welcoming, available for anyqueries but allowing us to determine the degree of contact.

We would recommend this for anyone wishing to have a quiet relaxing holiday in a rural setting."

"This pleasant gite is located in a quiet area, within walking distance of small town with a nice patiserie. The gite is comfortable and well equipped with up to date kitchen and bathroom fixtures. The English host was very friendly and helpful. We would rent this gite again if we were going to stay in the area."

bon sejour

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié ce petit logis très sympathique pour deux.

au calme bien agencé. Le propriétaire charmant et très disponible tout en étant réservé. le coin piscine très sympa malgré des matelas moyennement entretenus, mais cela ne nous a pas ennuyé plus que cela. les villages médiévaux environnants très beaux à visiter, malgré la météo peut propice malheureusement. Nous y reviendrons avec plaisir. les trois gîtes peuvent profiter à un groupe d'amis ce qui doit être encore plus sympatique.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre commentaire. Concernent les matelas ils ne sont pas facile à entretenir mais je vais attaquer le problème cet hiver.
