  • Fantastic cottage. Haven’t seen any TV as spent the evenings listening to wildlife and watching Mr Frog and Mr Toad. Have seen deer, lizards, woodpecker, squirrels, buzzards and heard lots of owls. Fantastic spot, great places to go on the bikes and lots of great food.

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

  • 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

  • The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is designed for taking things easily.

    Guest stayed in La Noix

    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.

  • We have had a magical fortnight staying here in La Noix. Beautiful area, peaceful and so green. As much as there is to visit close by, our days around here have been magical, usually spent close to the pool looking up at the trees and listening to the birds. Pat and Gill are so welcoming and friendly.

    We stayed at La Chataigne, very spacious and well equipped. The BBQ and patio area we put to good use most days. The good weather I requested Gill somehow managed to pull off too. The garden (which is huge) and pool area are beautifully kept. Pat & Gill have a host of local restaurants to suggest. It must be hell having to go to check them all out. Although we only managed to eat out one night, perhaps sitting on the patio sampling the local wine looking at the stars made it too much effort to go out. To say that Pat & Gill are congenial hosts is an understatement, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely consider coming back and we have already told a host of people to check out the website.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    Had a fabulous time and booked again for next year. Gill and Pat have been so kind and attentive, they have a great set up here.

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

    Guest stayed in La Noix

    Lovely gite, warm and friendly welcome, lived up to expectations.

    Guest stayed in La Noisette

  • 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!

    Guest stayed in La Chataigne

    We have had an excellent time here. The house has so much going for it – stacks of room, all the necessary amenities / resources and a fantastic setting in the secluded garden and swimming pool. All our family felt “at home” here.

    Guest stayed in La Chataigne

  • 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!

    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.

  • We have had a lovely stay here at Les Arbres. The gite is gorgeous and Gill and Pat have been great. There is plenty to do in the garden and the pool is lovely. We wish we had booked for two weeks!

    We have had a lovely family holiday here at Les Arbres. We have been in many gites over the years and this one is up there with the best. Thank you for creating a lovely home from home.
