“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The Gite is in a lovely peaceful and friendly location, it is well equipped and had everything you would need, with it's own private garden terrace with views over the beautiful garden.
The local village shop has all amenities including bar/restaurant.
Our hosts, Rosemary and Aleric were exceptional and couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much bother.
We will definitely be back.

“Tranquil stay in a beautiful gite”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a lovely 4 night stay in this pretty 2 floored gite. It was well equipped with all that we needed for our stay and tastefully furnished in a rustic french way with beautiful stone walls. A lovely touch was a welcome basket with lovely french biscuits and a bottle of local cider. The gite had a pretty, enclosed well kept garden which was lovely to sit in during our sunny stay. The purpose of our trip was to look for a french home. So, Gite Lavande was an ideal location for us to explore the towns and villages of the region. Our hosts, Alaric and Rosemary were wonderful. They were welcoming and very hospitable during our stay. In addition, they were both very knowledgable about the area and about buying property in France and gave us lots of useful, helpful advice. We can't thank them enough. I when we return to France we will definitely stay at Gite Lavender. It is one of the best holiday accommodations that we have stayed in.

Liked best: The accommodation and our hosts
Liked least: The road through the village was closed while we were there so was a little awkward sometimes. No fault of the owners though.

“Tranquil gite in a picturesque region”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A return visit to explore this quiet and picturesque area of France. The weather wasn't brilliant for the first week but the gite was snug when we had to hide from the rain. It is very very quiet in La Baroche but busy towns aren't too far away. We spent two relaxing weeks exploring the area, could have easily spent a month there!

Rosemary and Alaric are welcoming hosts and great company too.

We will definitely return and recommend the gite Lavande for those who want to escape from bustle into a beautiful rural region.

Sad to leave after our week. Nice shop/bar/reaturant a few yards away. Take the advice from the owners on visits and places to eat. We did and it renewed my faith in real French cooking. The local calvados also excellent. If you have a dog(like me) the owners and their dogs welcomed me on my morning walks in the field next to the house. Go and you won't be disappointed.

Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, very comfortable, chic and clean. Beautiful garden and patio, making eating outside even more of a pleasure. Thoroughly entertaining hosts just next door. Plenty of places to visit and many walks in the forests around.

Highly recommended.
