Lovely Gite in a convenient location. We had to call for directions as the TripAdvisor map put the property in the middle of St Leonard de Bois! Once there we were greeted by Nicci and shown round. There was a welcome pack of bread, milk,...More

About the neighbourhood
The gite is between two villages which are less than a mile away. They have bakers, bars and restaurants and a small shop. Larger supermarkets are in the next town about a fifteen minute drive. The gite is very quiet being surrounded by farms and fields. There is a footpath from thrive down to the small rocky river and a delightful walk along the river, which is wonderfully cool if a hot summer's day.
