What Our Guests Say

“The host Richard is very welcoming and a true hospitality professional: the gites offer all you need for your holiday, the property looks beautiful with lavish gardens, and for us a big plus: fresh croissants, bread and also a full 5-course dinner are available on request.”

Danielle Netherlands Aug 2021

“We stayed in the Old Goat Shed, what a beautiful location and lovely place to stay! We were met by Richard and given lovely fresh bread, eggs from his chickens and milk etc. The Gite was lovely and clean, cool and comfortable even in the 35c heat.”

Dani UK July 2022

“Richard was a great host and our gite had everything we could ever have needed. The mixed charcuterie plate we ordered for our arrival lasted us for a couple of days.”
