This is the first time we have stayed in a Gite and not a Hotel so it was a bit of an eye opener in relation to what we have been used to. We chose it because of the ideal location for visiting the War Graves from the Battle of the Somme which was our sole reason for our trip. The room was clean. We stayed for four nights and and on the second day we returned to find that the room had not been touched and the bed was as we left it. As we were out all day during our stay this was not a problem as we simply pulled up the bedclothes each morning before going out. The owners also run horse trekking, river canoeing and Valley walks. I think that this type of accommodation would be more suited to people with those interests rather than a longer stay. Our French is non existent and the owners spoke very little English so conversations were rather limited but they were a really friendly couple. In all staying in a Gite was a new experience but one that we enjoyed
Pros: Friendly owners.
Cons: A little more variety for breakfast.
Location: Ideally situated for visiting the War Graves.
