« Joli emplacement près de la rivière. Les inconvénients et les avantages dûs à la topographie sont bien détaillés dans le descriptif donc on le prend en toute connaissance de cause. Le gîte La Truite est très agréable pour passer les fêtes de Noël en famille car il est assez grand et la cuisine est très bien équipée pour réaliser un repas de fête. Petit commerce sympa à deux pas ainsi qu’un petit snack (pizza à emporter, poulet fermier local) . Rez-de-chaussée un peu sombre comme souvent dans les vieilles maisons mais très chaleureux. Et que de belles randos à proximité ! Accueil, propreté, confort: parfaits… Rapport qualité/prix: excellent… Je recommanderai cette location« .

«Very nice and well equipped gite. This gite is really adapted for a large family, very well located, and especially extremely well equipped. I think I’ve never seen anything like it. They have thought of everything, even what is usually missing in the rentals (dish towels, dishwashing liquid, boxes for food leftovers, tinfoil, cling film, hair dryer, even thinking of putting a small pharmacy, and even various spices for the kitchen!) Moreover, the restoration of the building is of good quality, the gite is well heated, and the decoration is well done. The only drawback: the parking is located a little further, but the owner puts 2 carts at our disposal. I will recommend this gite to my friends ». Allat Family, Paris, February 2017.
