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.
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.
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.
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.
What a fantastic week. The gite is spacious and comfortable and the pool is a dream on hot days.
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.
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!
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.
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
This is an absolutely beautiful house with exceptional attention to detail that makes a holiday a pleasure. Everything is tastefully done and the gite, pool and facilities are outstanding. For the last three years we have booked the next holiday on the first day of our holiday unable to resist the lure of this magical place and lovely part of the country. Pat and Gill are warm hosts without being intrusive and have organised some superb activities. They go out of their way to be helpful and provide lists of local markets and events so you benefit from their local knowledge. Couldn’t rate it more highly!
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
Thank you Gill and Pat for a perfect week. We couldn’t have asked for more. We hope to be back again.
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
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.
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.
