  • There are too few superlatives to describe what a great holiday we had. We travelled with our children, their partners and our two young grandchildren and stayed in La Noisette and an adjoining gite – La Chataigne. The gites were delightful and very well furnished. The owners, Pat and Gill, live opposite and were always on hand to help and were wonderful hosts – nothing was too much trouble for them. Our grandchildren loved the play equipment in the gardens and the swimming pool. There are lots of places to visit in the vicinity including Piegut market on Wednesday mornings, which is a must. We are already planning to return next year.

    The gite and garden are excellent with great facilities for children too – the secure garden and gated pool were a godsend.

  • We have had a wonderful holiday here at Les Arbres. We have never stayed in such a well-equipped holiday home and the children have had a great time in the garden. Would love to return in the future.

    Thank you for a wonderful holiday. You really have thought of everything. It really does feel like home.

  • Beautiful gite in the heart of the French countryside. We chose this holiday particularly as we have 3 children and there is a large enclosed garden. It meant that we were able to relax more while the children played on the swings, badminton or generally messed around. The swimming pool is enclosed so this is not a problem. There is also canoeing and tree climbing in the area so great for older children

    Lovely weather, gite and hosts. It is good to find a gite with comfortable seating for the evening.

  • Very spacious accommodation full of oak beams and granite. We were three generations staying in two of Gill & Pat’s gites with inter-connecting doors. The kitchen/diner table was big enough for 9 to sit at with a bit of help from the side board. The gardens are lovely and full of entertainment for the children, the pool being favourite and as we all know, if the children are happy everyone is happy. Thank you Gill & Pat for being so helpful we had a great time.

    Had a lovely week here at Les Arbres. The gite is beautiful and so quiet. Very many thanks to Gill and Pat’s hospitality and friendliness and for making us feel so welcome

  • We have had a great week. The highlights have been the gite (everything we needed was here. We were able to relax as soon as we arrived) and the pool (it was great to lie on the sun beds). Would love to return.

    Thank you Gill and Pat for a perfect week. We couldn’t have asked for more. We hope to be back again.

  • Fabulous Holiday. It was our third time and this time we were joined with our family and friends so it was the best so far. It has everything you are looking for on holiday. So much to do and such a wide variety. Gill and Pat are the hostesses with the mostesses. We have already booked again for next year.

  • We love this gite – it has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. This is the second year we have stayed here and we were still finding new places to visit. Thank you Gill and Pat for thinking of everything.

    What a wonderful stay; the perfect location to get away from it all and enjoy the simple things in life. The gites are very clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished with WIFI to stay connected. The kitchens are well equipped and stone BBQs on the patio area offer an easy way to cook some of the delicious local produce from the markets while enjoying a glass on wine in the evening. There is plenty to do without even getting into the car including the pool and the rest of the garden which is set up with a variety of games and activities for all ages. The bikes are perfect too with a variety of sizes to explore the beauty of the local countryside. Gill and Pat seem to have got the balance just right – friendly and accessible (being just across the lane) but give you lots of space! We will definitely be back!

  • A real home from home in a very beautiful part of the world. So much fun to be had in this area I could fill this book with the great days we have had. Wonderful holiday, wonderful place and wonderful hosts.

    Guest stayed in La Noix

    We had a lovely stay at La Chataigne. The accommodation is very attractive, comfortable and spacious. The sofa is great for sitting and reading – not that common in rentals! And the beds are equally comfortable. The patio is also a great place to sit and read or have a glass of wine. Our hosts were delightful and helpful, even down to doing a little food shopping for us so we had something for supper on our first night. They were attentive without us feeling they were watching us all the time!

  • We had a great week at this property. The owners Gill and Pat are very welcoming and have mastered the difficult balance of being attentive but not at all intrusive. The atmosphere is really relaxed. This is a great property with everything you need for young kids. The highlight is the outside space which is really superb for relaxing in and there is loads for young kids to do (ours are 4 and 1 years old). The pool is perfect. We found we hardly needed to leave the property at all, other than to replenish the wine stocks!

    We have had a wonderful, relaxing week in a beautiful and quiet gite. Pat and Gill are excellent wonderful hosts and are a mine of information about the area.

  • La Noix is the ideal bolt hole for anyone who wants to get away from it all. This little gite is charming with a wood burning stove that staves off the chilly evenings (even in June 2013 when Europe had a particularly cold spell). The secure garden is ideal for young kids with its heated pool, swing, camp fire and boules to pass away summer evenings after dining alfresco on your own terrace with outdoor BBQ. Magical! Gill and Pat are wonderful hosts and have great suggestions on local sights and restaurants. Bikes are available to explore the surrounding area on the very safe and quiet back roads.

    Thank you Gill and Pat for a lovely stay in La Chataigne. The gite is beautiful and very roomy. The garden and pool have been perfect. The kids have really enjoyed the garden games. A fantastic holiday. Accommodation is very spacious and of a great standard. We spent a lot of time at the poolside, the water is always warm and it’s great having it just on your doorstep.
