We could not have asked for more. An ideal property in a beautiful part of France with the space and freedom to remain on site or lots to do in the local area. Any reservations about the owners being on site were needless - George and Mary were charming and helpful if local knowledge was required but respected our privacy at other times. We just did not want to leave and would be delighted to return.

Our stay in Burgundy was excellent throughout. The gite has everything you could wish for, and was spotlessly clean throughout. After a long drive up from Lyons Airport we were made most welcome by the owners, George and Mary, when we finally reached their beautiful house. Also the complimentary arrival pack was indeed a sight for sore eyes as it meant we didnt have to venture straight out again to get supplies.
We found George and Mary to be wonderful but unobstrusive hosts, who were always just upstairs if we needed any help or advice on where to go, what to see etc. The gite is in a wonderful location deep in the countryside - quiet and tranquil, and we soon relaxed by the private pool to enjoy the sunshine. Just the spot to recharge ones batteries and generally chill out.
Our stay passed all too quickly, however we would highly recommend this lovely gite to anyone. Overall it is excellent and hard to beat, in my opinion.

We cant say enough positive things about this gite.
George and Mary are incredible hosts in this most magical place, on arrival they were not remotely fazed by us having forgotten to request a cot and high chair and after a week, we left feeling we left considering them to be friends.
The gite was spotlessly clean and unbelievably well equipped so that when it rained, we were still able to keep our 5 and 1 year old children amused without going out.
The location is very peaceful and totally private. The pool is very clean, the 2 acre meadow was brilliant for kicking a ball around for hours however the highlight had to be seeing the sky turned into a blanket of stars on a clear night-sublime.
There are no negatives about this gite, if you want a peaceful place to have fun as a family, we can think of no better place on earth!

We cannot thank George and Mary enough for their hospitality. From the selec tion of local delicacies that they left for us upon our arrival, to the cleanliness and homeliness of the Gite. The scenery and setting were stunning with beautiful views of the lake. Our days, when we werent out exploring the Burgundy countryside, were spent by the fabulous clear swimming pool, playing table tennis and enjoying the BBQ. I would thoroughly recommend a visit, we had such a wonderful holiday.

We had a great family holiday at the gite which lived up to and exceeded the previous reviews that prompted us to book in the first place. George and Mary could not be better hosts and the pool, table tennis and boule kept us competitively occupied.
The gite has a small library of books, DVDs and music and is very much out in the country with plenty of peace and quiet and easy access to the nearby town and local lakes to visit.
This gite is a genuine home from home and we have missed it and would definitely visit again!

Wir waren eine Woche im "Gite". Wir fanden alles zu unserer Zufriedenheit vor, wie beschrieben. Das Haus befindet sich in einer sehr schönen, ruhigen und ländlichen Gegend. Die Vermieter sind richtige "Perlen". Wir würden zu jederzeit wieder ins "Gite" fahren. Es sicher von Vorteil wenn man ein Auto hat.

A lovely gite in the most beautiful of surroundings - the view from theFrench windows is magnificent (whatever the weather).George and Mary have been wonderful hosts and we get the impression that they're both quite fond of cakes and and pastries...
About the owner
My wife and I were in the film business before we retired in France. We travelled extensively and stayed in a variety of establishments round the globe. We created our gite by combining the best features we found when we rented, achieving an apartment in which we would be happy to stay. Our guests have proved that we have achieved this to their satisfaction.
