We stayed here for two nights in August and it really was a paradise of luxury and relaxation. There were four of us, 2 adults and our teenage children. The pool area is just beautiful with plenty of sunbeds and tables and chairs for everyone and luxury pool towels. The pool bar is also lovely and you are offered drinks by the charming hosts. The lake is lovely to explore, with a little boat that can be rowed. There is a games room in the courtyard with table tennis, a gym and bikes you can use. There is also a putting hole for golfers. There are large skittles and croquet also by the pool.
The ambiance of the place is wonderful, so friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the Gardiner cottage which was perfect for two nights (although a proper shower would have been a bonus with four people trying to wash), but the little kitchen was a delight. The lady of the house also showed me the other gites, which all had proper fitted kitchens and full bathrooms and all looked amazing - every attention to detail, she has wonderful taste. Lovely fluffy towels, bathrobes and toiletries and lovely bedding. Our teenage children really enjoyed our time here. There was plenty for them to do for a short break, although they also enjoyed lazing by and swimming in the pool. We were going to visit places while there but didn't leave the site, as it was so beautiful.
There is a bread/cake shop and mini grocery shop (Simpla) in the village a mile away and larger supermarket 15 mins away. Good restaurants are within 10 to 15 minutes drive away and the owners are happy to make suggestions and reservations. The location for peace and tranquillity is very good but you cannot walk to any restaurants/bars, although they are not far away.
Thank you for a wonderful stay, we didn't want to leave, and WE WILL BE BACK!!
