Old building but comfortable, in a quiet very rural area. Very pleasant owners live nearby.

  • 4 of 5

Warm cosy and comfortable property with 'character' and in a good location for visiting Vézelay and area. Renovated and modernised inside to a good standard, with pleasant outdoor seating areas. Bring your own teapot if you need one! A useful bread van comes 3 times a week with baguettes. Nearest village shops (in St Père) are about a 10 minute drive.

Neither our 'school' French nor the owners' English was good so the booking process via the web site emails wasn't easy. The whole booking process (for this, and for another gîte) through the HomeAway web site was very clunky and tedious. I would not choose to book through HomeAway again. The owners are very pleasant and helpful despite our language difficulties. Electricity and the local tax are charged extra, as are bedding and towels if you don't bring your own.

Super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine de vacances formidable avec des propriétaires du gîte super sympas.... Nous qui avons toujours peine à trouver un gîte avec nos chiens, on a su nous faire confiance et ça fait plaisir. C'est avec plaisir que vous reviendrons dans cette magnifique région... Et oui, nous avons encore plein de sujets de discussion, entre autres le thème "Education d'un futur chien d'assistance", n'est-ce pas? Portez-vous bien et à bientôt.... Toutes mes amitiés, Catherine.
