"Wonderful farmhouse in a beautiful location... can't wait to go back!"

"After a week in Paris and Disneyland, this was an oasis of peace and relaxation. The children had plenty of space to play in the garden and loved the benefit of the private pool. The gite came up to all our expectations for both adults and children."

"The house is quite idyllic, it really grows on you. The downstairs living space is excellent and the garden more than exceeded our expectations... wonderful! Our best trip was to the Ile D'Aix, ferries every 30 mins from the end of Fouras, its a special place, no cars, just bikes, trailers and wonderful beaches. Thank you for a lovely stay."
