2 years ago Marie-Pierre Hubert

Very popular family stay in this beautifully located gîte: superb view of the vineyards.
Well-equipped kitchen, very comfortable rooms with private bathrooms, a real plus. The table football was a big hit with both children and adults! The weather being sunny, we were able to enjoy the terrace and the garden at our leisure. Warm welcome from the owner, Mr. Eric Louis.

Superb, I highly recommend. Very comfortable, too bad there isn’t a lounge area with sofa and television for everyone. The rooms are superb as are the bathrooms!!! We weren’t able to enjoy the outdoors due to bad weather but we will come back.
