GUEST REVIEW

Just had 2 weeks with family in the Libellule Gîte. It truly is a home away from home. Anne and Graeme are excellent owners and have thought about everything you could need. The kids loved the pool and the play area. It’s so lovely and peaceful yet only minutes away from all amenities. There’s so much to see and do in the area, you cannot get bored. Thank you so much.
