Interaction with guests
We will be on hand to meet you as you arrive, give you the keys, and then meet up with you on the lawn for a glass or two of wine and answer questions, give advice, show you round etc. For the rest of your holiday, its up to you whether you 'do your own thing' or come and chat, help feed the animals, walk the goats, or just relax in the garden or round the pool or jacuzzi. Help yourself to lettuce, herbs, pears, plums, nuts, apples and grapes from the garden.

The gite has everything you need and is in a quiet little countryside village. John, Angela and Selina are a lovely family who went out of their way to make us feel welcome (especially the kids). They have goats you can walk and feed bottles...More

About the neighbourhood
Our region of France is usually a few degrees warmer than the South of England, and early Spring and late Autumn are often very mild, making it ideal for off-season breaks.We live in the countryside on the edge of Carelles village.
