  • 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.

  • 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.

    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

  • 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 for a wonderful holiday. You really have thought of everything. It really does feel like home.

  • 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.

    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!

    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.

  • 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!

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

  • 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.

    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 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.

    Guest stayed in La Noix

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

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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!

    Guest stayed in La Noisette

    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.
