Thanks to all guests past who have given us the feedback to improve the gite further!
Tina's attention to detail from our first enquiry of availability, exchange of emails and information provided was extremely professional. On arrival we were met by Lindsey and Gerry, the housekeeper and manager, who made us very welcome, showing us around, explaining everything. The kitchen table was there with complimentary provisions for our first evening and the following day's breakfast. Nice thought and very much appreciated after a long journey.
The gite itself is typically French in that not all the upstairs floors are level, there are a couple of "sit in the tubs" in the en-suites and steps here and there but this is a gite with character, style, originality, constant hot water, excellent showers, superb deep bath, all en-suite, fully equiped kitchen, lounge supplying books, games, internet, DVDs, Freeview etc etc
Outside everything is per website - what they say they deliver on, thanks to Arthur's good heart of, "people come here on holiday and I want them to enjoy the experience", however if you do need anything then a phone call to Lindsey or Gerry will answer your query. The pool is at a constant 27 degrees and has the clearest water you will ever have seen.
In answer to any doubters thinking the owners friends have written this, we affirm we have never met any of the above named until our arrival. In the last couple of days Tina and Arthur visited where we enjoyed their company and conversation, reciprocated the following evening with cold beer and wine as the sun fell beyond the trees and by now it was well past 9pm - Bliss!!
And finally, for anyone viewing Google Earth, the work shown thereon was 2 years ago when mains drainage was being laid - the land is now grass and wild poppies grow in profusion.
Best wishes to Tina and Arthur as we look forward to seeing your plans unfold during the coming years.

you could want from a holiday (and then some!) for all ages. The service
provided by the Cooks is exemplary – they even found us a home in
France! (nearby –was this such a smart move?!?). PS There were eleven
of us here and even when it rained there was room for eleven plus. PPS
If you remember the 11+ then you’re as old as me…!

wind down Great surrounding golf courses and some totally outstanding
restaurants in this vicinity.
comfortable surroundings. Enjoyed terrific food.
Loved it so
much last time brought friends for a golf break. New addition of sauna
and heated pool made for relaxing evenings.
Could not fault
it. Very good.
Comments prior to 2010 were while the property was owned by Michelle and Stewart Cook.
We have had guests from the UK, Hong Kong, the USA and Canada
Type of party
Parties seem to fall into two groups: extended families spanning three generations, and groups of friends.
The provision of facilities, particularly the ensuites in every bedroom, are well suited to both.
Whilst there are terraces etc that accommodate a whole party of 10/12, there are also a number of quiet little spots on the property for those in search of their own space.
