I have been to this Gite 5 times over the last 8 years - often for a month at a time - what more can I say.
The location is idilic, very quite so you have your own space. Your are close enough to the local town - a short drive so that you are not stranded or too remote. The local lake is fantastic and a well kept secret so even of the 'busiest' of days there is room for the family.
The Gite has all the basics that you can require and the beds are comfortable, if its cold there is a log fire - we have never had to use it. Highly recommended .
We had a lovely holiday and house hunting trip the cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay we will defiantly stay there again
Absolutely infested with flies, had to get a farmer to move the sheep as they were 15 yards from the front door, this took him over a week to do! I had to threaten to report him to the mayor. Owner not interested said it had never happened before and said the sheep were always there. Rubbish, where there are sheep there are flies, we were all ill even though we were really careful not leaving food out. I took photos of all of it as proof, we could not eat outside and could not open the windows.THE FLY PAPERS WE PUT UP WERE BLACK WITH THEM, AVOID!
