We have stayed again with Chris and Gail for 2 nights last week whilst we sorted out some issues with our own house build in the area.Once again nothing is any trouble and the extra mile is certainly covered in helping you out even when you have left and gone home! Thanks again for a great stay here.

We stayed in the Gite recently while we were renovating a house locally and felt very glad to arrive "home" in the evenings. L'Hirondelle was warm and welcoming, as were Gale and Chris.
