I would highly recommend the Gite in Lesterps the accommodation is very good and in a good location for various trips. The restaurant in the village is highly recommended as is the little shop as the croissants are delicious.

Only spent one night at this lovely gite as we were travelling through Europe on a road trip . Ana-Luisa met us at the entrance and showed us around. Everything was clear and understandable from the minute we arrived. This was our first experience of using Air bnb and it has set the bar high for other properties. The gite is beautifully decorated in a quaint and rustic style. Everything you need in the kitchen is supplied with various methods of cooking catered for. Everything was clean and comfortable and it felt like home. Will definitely come back and spend more time exploring the surrounding area. Thank you for a lovely stay and introduction to Air bnb.

We booked last minute as we were attending an event close by. The communication was first rate and the bite is lovely, very homely and more like a boutique hotel room than a gite. Ana-Luisa was wonderful, friendly and welcoming and could not do enough to make us comfortable. The restaurant in the village is worth a visit as its good value, wholesome food too. We'll certainly be back next time we are passing.

Joli petit gîte au bord d'une route un peu passante à proximité d'un petit village avec une magnifique abbatiale romane. Accès par la porte à côté à un grand jardin avec des petits recoins où nous avons passé un soir à admirer les étoiles au son de la cloche de l'horloge de l'abbatiale. Les hôtes britanniques sont charmants, très disponibles et en même temps discrets, et parlent très bien le français. Le lit double est un peu étroit, probablement 120cm.
