"Our holiday scored 10 out of 10."

"We have had a wonderful time, enjoyed the pool with the family. Loved the peace and quiet. Creperie was amazing. Emily and I walked to the bakers every day, we saw a tiny frog one day!!

Thank you for the fresh tomatoes and courgettes – much appreciated. Thank you for all your help. Our holiday scored 10 / 10

"Becoming a bit of a home from home here!!"

"Our 6th stay here – and as normal the weather has been superb, the hosts their normal selves and the gite is everything we need.
More exploring this year – including Bourgenay (Port) Les Sables – interesting but missed our opportunity to eat!! La Roche is good for shopping
Pool as ever is spotless and we've had yet another fully relaxing holiday. Becoming a bit of a home from home here. The car is becoming used to the drive too!!
