    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

  • Les Arbres is the most excellent accommodation we have ever had for a holiday. The Gite has everything anyone would need to ensure the perfect getaway. Gill and Pat are brilliant hosts and any one staying in their accommodation would be well catered for.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Gill & Pat are excellent hosts, they welcome you,make sure you are familiar with all aspects of the property and amenities on site and in the area,then leave you to get on and enjoy your stay, always being there should you require assistance. The property is equipped to a very high standard, and tastefully decorated and furnished. There is so much to do in the area details of which are carefully presented in a file. We have visited on a number of occasions and will certainly be returning.

    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.

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

    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 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 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

  • 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 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 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.

    Lovely gite, very relaxing, did lots of cycling, beautiful countryside. Had a great week, loved the pool and massive garden.

  • 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.

    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.

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