Our coments on this property

The owners, Jean-Paul and Hélène GRILLET and their young daughters, are delightful hosts who will do all they can to make your stay memorable and enjoyable. However they only have limited English.

Light airy modern gites with plenty of windows giving wonderful vistas over vineyards and the valley. Excellent appliances and creature comforts.

Certainly one of the handiest gites to a wine area - you are surrounded by vineyards in every direction.

A wonderful area for those who want to ramble or cycle through vineyards with signposted trails with stopping points along the way - the trails range in length from 800 metres to 20 kilometres and wander through villages, vineyard and trees.


A small village that is truly walking distance away, plus larger villages and towns within 10 minutes drive.

Would we recommend this property?

If your passion is wine and the better things of life, then this is the property for you. The gites offer accommodation which is ideal for a couple or in combination for two couples. A very comfortable property.
