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.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday. You really have thought of everything. It really does feel like home.
From the French charm and character of the property to the beautiful, child-friendly grounds and pool, we couldn’t have asked for more. You have made us feel totally welcome and at home. We are already looking forward to our return next summer.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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!
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 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 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 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.
The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is designed for taking things easily.
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!
What a fantastic week. The gite is spacious and comfortable and the pool is a dream on hot days.
Lovely gite, warm and friendly welcome, lived up to expectations.
