The owners, Carole and Arnaud have created a wonderful holiday property with all the comforts you could expect and hope for. They are very friendly, helpful and seem very keen to ensure that you have a fabulous holiday in their Gite.
It is exceptionally well equipped for 8 people to stay and relax - a real home from home. You even get to feed the fish (which our son loved) and water the many indoor plants !!! The kitchen has a range oven, double butchers block arrangement, American style fridge, microwave, double sink and dishwasher with an extensive range of crockery, cutlery, and cooking utensils - it is definitely not the normal basic fit out that we have encountered in other properties in the past.
A washing machine, tumble dryer, portable clothes dryer, iron and ironing board are all housed in a separate cool Utility room with plenty of worktop space for all your larder requirements. Outside there is a terrace with outdoor dining area and plus a separate relaxed seating area- again comfortably set up to accommodate 8 adults. 8 Sun loungers, a BBQ and 2 parasols are available in the Garden shed.
The downstairs double bedroom with large walk in integral shower room worked out really well for our reduced mobility parents. The room comfortable and spacious with a beautiful view of the garden. The downstairs toilet is a little neat and would not accommodate a wheelchair were that a need. The rooms upstairs are all double (but can be twin) and although a little little smaller they are equally comfortable. Everyone commented on the comfort of the beds.
The bathroom upstairs is a wet room style with lots of counter and shelf space for all your belongings. The bathroom door has a quirky sliding frosted door and an additional modesty screen by the side of the toilet!
Throughout our time there was always masses of hot water for all our needs.
The lounge area is super with large flat screen TV, satellite and DVD. There is even a separate children's table and chairs with books in an alcove under the stairs.
The Gite has a separate Spa area (book separately) comprising sunken hot tub in a room to the side of the lounge and a relaxing/massage room in the eaves above the lounge. However we suspect that young children may sneak up and use the latter as another room to escape their parents!
The town itself is split in two halves with the Bakery, pharmacy and local store outside the walls in the lower section and the Tourist Office, Hotel Belle Vue, Pizzareria & Creparie, local produce shops, Post Office, ATM and Tabac inside the walls in the upper section. Overall the essentials are catered for but bigger supermarkets,malls etc are within 15kms.
The are lots of bits of tourist information in the Gite itself plus there is the local Tourist Office and Museum for any other info. There is wifi throughout the Gite so it's very easy to do your research! We loved exploring the town, the castle, and the local area on foot. If you are lucky to stay when one of the events is happening at the castle we would recommend you make the effort to go. There are also many walks/cycle routes that you can follow that take you a little further afield.
Overall we are delighted to have found this Gite and would happily return both to it and this area. From what we have seen we are sure that whatever time of year you visit you will have a wonderful stay.
