Great holiday staying at Chez Sophie
We arrived at Chez Sophie at 8pm on a Saturday evening to find not only a beautiful gite but also bread, butter, cheese and wine plus jam, pickles etc left in the fridge. So we felt at home straight away. We also had our two dogs with us and they loved the place especially the huge garden. My husband can’t sleep on a hard bed but he had no problems on the bed here it was so comfy! The village was quiet but had all the essentials, bakery, where we bought our pain au chocolate most mornings. It also had a great butcher, bar restaurant, post office and corner shop, we used all of these. We found another bar restaurant nearby called Auberge d Noyer, run by 2 English guys, Steve and Sean, the food was fantastic and the company also. We visited many lovely places whilst we were there so Chez Sophie is a good base for sight seeing as well as being like home from home. Hopefully we will be back next year!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and you are right there are lots of places close to us worth visiting, Auberge du Noyer definitely one of our favourites. We hope you make it back next year and thanks for being great guests. Kind regards Rose
