“Excellent retreat in the french countryside”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family (two adults and three children ) stayed here in late July 2014. We had a wonderful time! The property is a lovely old building that is well kept with a lovely garden around it. The has was well equipped but also very charming at the same time. The owners where very helpful but also discrete. A big plus was the pool which the children loved. The property is out in the countryside so a car is necessary. A very relaxing place in a lovely rustic setting. Thanks for a great stay.

“Fantastic gite, great pool, perfect location for relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in La Lavande for a week. It was perfect, great rural location, fantastic pool to cool off in and wonderful location for exploring the great chateaux nearby. John and Margaret were a great source of information on things to do. There are even troglodyte caves under the farmhouse which we had a tour of. It was a great break to relax and unwind and the fields of sunflowers were spectacular too.

My wife and two children stayed here for the first two weeks of August in "La Lavande" the larger of the two gites. The buildings were very attractive and well maintained and there was lots to do including swimming in the pool (a good size), sunbathing, cycling (you can hire these which is not mentioned on the site), badminton and visiting their troglodytic cave! Location-wise it was also good, in two weeks we didn't travel for more than 40 minutes to get to any number of places (chateau, zoos, towns you name it). I have no hesitation recommending the place we had a great time and the owners are really nice too.
