Are you still present?

When the gite is rented, we are right next door, as the gite is next to the house, so we are always available to share the best spots in the area, and always happy to share an aperitif.

When the house (including the gîte) is rented, we leave you the keys but we make sure that we organise a dream stay with a maximum of services, so that you can enjoy your stay.
