    Wat een heerlijke plek en wat een superhuis. Alle comfort is aanwezig, het is echt van alle gemakken voorzien en heel veel smaak en oog voor detail ingericht. De gastvrouwe Susan is bijzonder vriendelijk en behulpzaam, als je iets wilt weten, staat ze onmiddelijk klaar met allerlei tips en ideeen.

    Met de bakker om de hoek is dat franse ontbijtje zo gemaakt en inderdaad, zoals beschreven op de website, heerlijk op te eten op het zonneterras.

    Gelijk vanaf de Gîte kunnen er prachtige wandelingen worden gemaakt en ook in de omgeving is er genoeg te zien en doen. Ik kom hier zeker nog een keertje terug in de herfst, om lekker bij het knappende haardvuurtje te genieten van al het moois en het lekkers te koop op de leuke markt in Argentat.
