Great location for checking out the area. Comfortable accommodation. Excellent host.

The gite had everything we needed for our stay, including bedding. The local area has heaps of outdoor activities such as hiking on the many well outlined trails, paddle boarding and canoeing on the local lake. Regular festivals in the village of Chamberet and surrounding towns.

Relaxing holiday - great getaway and friendly host.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the gite 3-hours later than planned but this wasn't a problem as James lives in the house next-door and let us in. He took us around the old mill and showed us how the water used to flow through the mill and power the old (rusty!) machinery that used to grind the flour.

We settled into the gite, which consisted of a large living/kitchen area and two bedrooms. The beds were comfortable (2 doubles and a single), and the place was clean. The shower had a bluetooth-speaker-lightbulb which was a nice touch as we could listen to music in the bathroom. A television was provided - but this was not hooked-up to any channels via satellite/cable - instead we were provided with an 'internet tv' box which we used. We were also provided with a Chromecast so we could play moves from our laptops on the TV.

The WiFi was good enough for three of us to view YouTube videos at the same time.

The place was very quiet - it was lovely to take a walk around the countryside (it takes 90 minutes to walk in a circle around the country roads), and through the forest. We saw rabbits and what looked like hawks. There was a duck pond where we counted 14 ducks.

The local village was less than 5 minutes away - there was a G20 supermarket for shopping and James told us where the local bakery was to get fresh bread.

We went to the lake about 10 minutes away, the shops there were shut, but we brought a picnic and has a bracing lunch sitting at the 'yogi-bear' tables.

Most of our time was spent sleeping, reading, eating and relaxing - although we did go to the local equestrian centre and spend a morning horse riding (35 EUR for an hour).

All in all an enjoyable holiday - we felt very relaxed after staying there. If I would have to make a suggestion for improvement I'd say that we didn't need the single-bed in the gite and it could have been removed.
