We only stayed for two nights in this gorgeous gite and I wish it could have been more. Initially it was quite difficult to find being tucked away at the back of some houses but as soon as I walked through the door I loved everything that I saw in front of me. The gite is decorated with chandeliers and plush fabrics and has everything you require in a home from home. There were two gardens either side of the kitchen/dining area so you got the sun from morning till night. We had travelled for six hours from the Charente and I confess to having a lovely two hours sleep on the wonderful day bed! All in all an excellent short stay and I would recommend this gite without exception.
Thank you so much, we love letting people stay in our French home. The daubed is from IKEA but the mattress is a Myers so it's really comfortable.
The cottage is very old with so much character and the odd spider but embrace that and you will have the perfect time!
Thank you again and come again.
Fabulous Christmas break
This is the fourth time we have stayed at Labroye, so it feels like home from home now. The owners had put up Christmas decorations for us, so it was so lovely to arrive and simply switch on the lights!
We just love it here.
