“This cottage is simply beautiful. Very well renovated, with all amenities you might need. The location is absolutely gorgeous and the views from the terrace are breathtaking. Penny and her husband are so kind and helpful. We arrived a little late and provided us with everything we needed for supper. That was so thoughtful! I recommend a stay in this cottage to anyone who wants a layback, french pace holiday. Far enough from the huzzle and buzzle though close enough to all touristic attractions to drive to. We loved it ”

“We had a truly wonderful time in France. The cottage is cosy but comfortable and beautifully done. Penny and Alan are great hosts, very accommodating and kind. They welcome us with a lovely basket of local delicious food, including fresh raspberries (sweetest we ever had) and other vegetables from they garden - which was much appreciated. The country location is perfect! There is so much to see and do. Beautiful sites and Château to visit and our kids loved the area and walks around the stunning countryside. We definitely recommend it! Thank you Penny and Alan”
“We feel genuinely privileged both to have met the lovely Penny and Alan and stay in this fantastic location. We were greeted with fresh cut flowers from the garden and a small hamper of goodies. Penny and Alan were the perfect hosts, inviting the children on tractor rides, to water the garden and pick raspberries for their pudding. They were very understanding of the ups and downs of having 2 small children as well. The gite is very cosy and comfortable with a small pool for cooling off in the summer. The stars are endless and the vistas of green rolling fields so peaceful. Pure relaxation and a wonderful garden that the children never wanted to leave. Thank you Penny and Alan and we cannot wait to revisit.”
