An ideal base

Some of our cottages belong to UK residents, something often reflected in the décor and furnishings - with a kettle and teapot being commonplace. But if it's a more French experience you're looking for we also have a great selection of traditional and modern gites.

All are well situated to explore the surrounding area, and to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, golf, fishing, cycling or horse riding. The majority provide a barbecue and garden furniture, giving you the perfect way to relax and socialise after a day's activities.
