Wow, Peter and Sally, thank you so much for letting us glimpse a little slice of heaven! It was as much as we expected and far more! You are such wonderful caring and thoughtful hosts and we will miss you more than you could know. À bientôt!

Thanks for yet another great relaxing holiday – the gîte was as good as ever and the company even better. I can’t say much more than has already been said previously. See you next year!

Mike and Carol (Birmingham, UK), 

Thank you so much for our great stay in your lovely house and “Village”! We had a great time and loved the time we spent together with you. The house has everything we needed. We will be back to see the new view soon!

Marc, Wil, Sanne, Els, Joep and Koos (Utrecht, Netherlands), 

We have had such a wonderful week, the house is a perfect spot for us to visit our family who live close by. We are very grateful for your hospitality and all of your help, especially with our children and dog, thank you

Once again we’ve had a fabulous holiday thanks to Peter, Sally and “La Goupillère”. 3 weeks of peace, quiet and more exploration in addition to friendly meet-ups with friends over drinks, etc, all the time making us feeling more welcome (if that’s possible). We can’t wait to be back HOME again next year.

Michael and Carol (Birmingham, UK), 

Can’t believe it’s been 3 years since we left here, unfortunately Covid meant we were unable to come as planned in 2020. Delighted to day nothing has changed – the house is still as fabulous as ever and Peter and Sally are just like bottles of excellent wine and get better and better! Such good friends it’s been so lovely to see you sand catch up, lovely to meet new friends and look forward to our next visit.

La Goupillere is a lovely, spacious, comfortable gite in a peaceful part of France, largely off the beaten track for most tourists. Equipped to a very high standard, it had everything we possibly needed for a wonderful, relaxing 2 week holiday and served as a perfect base for visiting numerous places of interest or just walking & discovering nature on the doorstep. Would highly recommend if you want to discover 'real' France and get a way from it all.

Julie, Johnathan and Percy (Northants, UK), 

Thank you, Peter and Sally for letting us stay at La Goupillère. Welcome pack was lovely and just what we needed after a long journey here. First class attention to detail, equipment, garden and household superb, bedding top quality. Perfect place for rest, relaxation sight-seeing, long walks and excellent bird watching.

Julie, Jon and Percy, 

Welcome Pack got the holiday off to a good start! Everything you need is here - a lovely place to stay in this lesser known part of France. Peter and Sally were an extra! Thanks for your welcome and friendliness - all added to the holiday experience. Had a great stay in excellent gîte.

James, Lynne, Louis and Tom (Gwynedd, Wales), 

An amazing relaxing place. Perfect in every way. Every thing you need is here. Beautiful and exceptional accommodation. Owners very nice and friendly and nothing too much. Made very welcome with lovely starter pack after our long journey there. Perfect.

Tracey, Mark and Shirley (Northants, UK), 

Once again another fabulous time and another special memory for the “bank” - Peter and Sally, thanks again for all your kindness and generosity, we’ve had a really relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We can’t fault the property, it just keeps on giving and is a great base to explore from or just chill.

Michael and Carol, 

Thank you Peter and Sally for being such lovely hosts. We have had a very restful holiday. The accommodation is an excellent standard and you put on a lovely welcome for our family. Carys particularly liked being able to feed your ponies and see the great collection of feline beauties. The pool was lovely and warm in the sun and we enjoyed the comfy sun loungers. When can we book to come back!

Matthew and Karen, Jacob (16) and Carys (14), (Bexleyheath, UK), 

We would like to thank you for our lovely holiday. The house was perfect, full of everything we needed. Compliments on plenty of good quality kitchen equipment. Peace and quiet, afternoon Scrabble challenge to get the brain working! Weather has been excellent. Our evening spent with yourselves was great, good conversation, good food and wine.

Ray and Sue, (Kidderminster, UK), 

Our 4th visit, this time bringing friends. Thank you Peter and Sally for your usual attention to detail and support. With love and thanks.

Beverley and John, Tony and Jackie (Yorkshire, UK), 

Great to be back after 18 months. This is our 5th visit and it's just as amazing as ever! Looking forward to our next visit in Oct 2020 - already booked!! Time has gone so quickly... don't want to go back home.

Des, Wendy and Michelle (Bracknell, UK), 

It was a wonderful three weeks and not only because we’ve been so lucky with the weather. We can only echo others’ comments about the comfort here, the thoughtful provision of every necessity (and luxury!) and the willingness of Peter and Sally to help whenever needed. We’ve seen deer, red squirrels, egrets and astonishingly red admirals and commas. But the greatest pleasure has been the quiet – and the dark. It’s a long time since we’ve been somewhere where you can see the Milky Way clearly.

Stevie & David (Powys, Wales), 

We had a wonderful week. It was great to meet you and see what you have done with La Goupillère.

George & Anne Marie (Eindhoven, Netherlands), 

We had a lovely week, a real "home from home". The farmhouse is very well equipped and has everything you will need during your stay. We were greeted by a very impressive welcome pack, which was a real treat. Even the dogs had treats! A most enjoyable break in a lovely location and a lovely farmhouse. Thanks to Peter and Sally who have clearly put a lot of thought into their guests' needs.

Claire & Charlotte (Wiltshire, UK), 

Our second trip and another great holiday. This time my parents stayed and the six of us had a wonderful time. The kids loved the addition of the pool which was very welcome on the hot days. Thank you Peter and Sally for your hospitality.

The Wildens & Appletons (Hampshire, UK), 

Another fabulous holiday here (4th time) wanting for nothing and relaxing as ever. Peter and Sally, thank you for letting us share your lifestyle and your property which once again exceeded our expectations – we’ll miss this once we’re back! The pool is an added bonus and very welcoming given the weather we’ve had for most of the holiday. Thanks for recommending Le Mans night light show. It was fabulous and well worth a visit. Once again we’re sad to be leaving but look forward to next year – 49 weeks and counting!

Mike, Carol & Eileen (Birmingham, UK), 

A wonderful week in a wonderful property. A very warm welcome from Peter and Sally. Made the perfect home from home.

Doreen, Harriet, Mac and Sarah (West Yorkshire, UK), 

Beautiful, spacious, well preserved property. Generous welcome pack much appreciated. Enjoyed the tranquility, almost a perfect week!

Steve, Anne, Dave and Denise (Sussex, UK), 

Sadly our week has come to an end so we must pack our bags and head back to Blighty. Many thanks for the loan of your gite and for being such wonderful and generous hosts. We came wanting a relaxing break and the week has flown by in such a peaceful setting that we're just about ready to take on the world again. Thanks once again for a very enjoyable Thursday evening - it was a pleasure sharing our wedding anniversary with you! You have a fabulous home in an idyllic setting with lots of wine and plenty of cats. Nirvana!

Huw and Ruth (West Glamorgan, UK), 

We have had a great week in not a "gite" but a lovely renovated, comfortable house, with all facilities and large gardens. Ideal for a quiet start and finish off a day after sightseeing or just relaxing. You are great hosts, from meeting on arrival, seeing you at the local annual fete on the Sunday in Ize and occasionally on passing through the week. We would without question stay here again when visiting this area and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Mick, Janice, Ceris and Corrine (Northants, UK), 

Our second stay at this wonderful gîte – really is “home from home”, even better than we remembered. Thanks to Peter and Sally for their generous hospitality we discovered many more places to visit locally and revisited some we’d enjoyed last year, e.g. Ste Suzanne. Very relaxing quiet holiday. Hope to come again – weather was excellent for the whole week, hot and sunny. Just perfect to unwind. Many, many thanks we were so comfy.

Jan, Steph and Finn the dog (West Wales, UK), 

A superb gîte, well equipped home from home. Tasteful furnishing throughout, excellent personalised guidebook for gîte and local area.
