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!
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.
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.
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.
We cannot rate La Noix highly enough. We have stayed in a number of properties and can honestly say that, within this budget range, La Noix has been the best. First impressions of a property are so important for setting the tone of the holiday and we felt La Noix was fresh, clean and had everything we needed (including reliable wifi!). We really felt as though Gill and Pat had thought about the sort of holiday experience we would want as opposed to just doing what was necessary to run the business; fresh cotton bed linen, nice towels and good quality poolside and outdoor furniture. The pool and the grounds are great and we made good use of them. There is enough space for privacy or to get to know the neighbours. Would love to go back one day.
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.
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 wrench to leave such a beautiful place. Had such a wonderful time – Gill and Pat have to be the best hosts ever! A bientot!
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, relaxing week in a beautiful and quiet gite. Pat and Gill are excellent wonderful hosts and are a mine of information about the area.
We have spent 9 idyllic weeks in La Noix. Pat and Gill have been the most delightful hosts and we are looking forward to our next visit very soon. Just a wonderful place and great memories of a brilliant stay.
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!
Lovely gite, warm and friendly welcome, lived up to expectations.
The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is designed for taking things easily.
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
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.
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.
What a fantastic week. The gite is spacious and comfortable and the pool is a dream on hot days.
Lovely gite, very relaxing, did lots of cycling, beautiful countryside. Had a great week, loved the pool and massive garden.
