“Excellent gite and in lovely peaceful location to explore this beautiful part of France”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Spent a lovely 2 weeks at Le Bucheron, service was outstanding. We were lucky enough to meet the lovely owners, such a lovely couple. Peaceful location, large gardens, great for the children to run around freely and safely. Ours loved the trampoline and play equipment. Gardens nice for eating outside and relaxing as plenty comfortable outdoor seating. Gite is fully equipped with everything you need. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and we were sad to leave. Area nice for exploring chateaus, vineyards, a few great markets and to chill out. Most sights about 30 mins drive away but supermarkets within 5-10 mins.

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful surrounding”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed in this cottage for a week in June and the owner was very accommodating for what we had planned which was a week road cycling holiday and he allowed us access to the other barn to store our bikes.

The setting was fantastic, the grounds were beautiful and we had a really pleasant holiday. It was easy to find and had access to local shops a 10 minute drive away. The walk in bathroom was particularly

However, i would have reviewed it higher but we did have several problems. The main was that the internet did not work all week albeit the cottage manager did try his best to fix it but he couldn't. This was quite an important feature for us as we wanted to use the internet to plan our rides.

Also the cottage smelt damp in the main bedroom which was confirmed by the numerous air fresheners to mask the smell in the room and the fact that the chimney leaked quite badly when it rained.

If it were not for these two major elements then i would have given a much higher rating and if the owner can sort the damp and get the internet working then this would be a 5 star cottage

Management Response
21 Sep 2013
Thank you for your review Richard. I would repeat the comments made to you personally about the internet. We are supplied the service by Orange Telecom and unfortunately prior to your arrival a problem was reported but they were unable to respond to the issue within the week you stayed at the cottage. The problem was resolved soon afterwards and we have had no issues since. You did not mention in your review that to assist you, in lieu of the internet, that my property manager obtained a number of cycling routes for you which were printed out and delivered to you so I feel you received the benefits you were looking for from the internet.

The cottage is 300 years old so is prone to some periodic condensation internally. However, we installed an airflow management system in the property in the Spring of 2013 to combat this problem and since your visit we have had the chimney re-sealed which I think was the cause of the damp smell. As an observation there is only one air freshener in the bedroom! I personally spent two weeks in the cottage in July and can report that there were no issues with either of those that you reported.
