We came back on the 22/7/17 from a wonderful week in this gorgeous Gite. The Gite is amazing literally home from home, and the swimming pool is just fantastic. Karen and Graham are the perfect hosts, on hand if we needed them but gave us the upmost privacy to relax and enjoy our holiday. The only problem was the week went to quick!! We will def be retuning Sam Steve and Diva Dog Judd

Merci pour votre hospitalite. we've had a lovely, peaceful break at La Cachette. The weather may not have been great, but the facilities, especially the pool have made up for it. To come so far & find everything as described is such a relief. The home from home experience just adds to the enjoyment. Thanks for everything. Chris, Burco, Sebren & Ruya
