“Absolutly brilliant !!”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at river cottage for a week,it was really well equipted and was really clean and homely.The fishing was brilliant and my dogs had the run of the place and were perfectly safe.The owner Taunya and Brian cannot do enough for their guest even to the point of inviting you into there home for drinks.
I will be going back next year that is for certain.I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

I saw the online photos of Gites de Laprade but was really amazed at the real thing. Taun and Brian were outstandingly good hosts, going out of their way for us.Waking to the sound of the river was so relaxing, and the view of the lake and surrounding trees was the cherry on the cake! Am going back later in the year, totally addicted

We have been doing holidays for 5 years, with lots of happy guests and this is the first complaint that we have ever had. Please check the reviews on our website, you will find that they are all positive. I am afraid that the old saying is correct, you can't please all the people all of the time.
