Once again, the local artisans have done a brilliant job. Annick has a joyous sense of style. Welcome to these three charming gîtes: houses of comfort, charm and stupendous views. Inside the Gîte du Levant is a large open-plan living space with the palest floor tiles and the subtlest fabrics – deep rose and soft grey. French windows fling open to a lovely terrace stuffed with herbs to delight your nose and palate. Light pours in to illuminate pretty metal dining chairs, modern sofas, a fireplace for the cooler months, touches of brocante. The kitchen is custom made from beech, its latticed cupboards holding pink and grey china, of course. The iron-balustraded staircase takes you up to serene bedrooms: the pale lilac room matches the trees in the garden, the other, spacious and cool, opens to a terrace – you can even watch the sun rise (le levant – the east) from your bed. Magical… All the rooms in the Gîte du Midi lead to a pretty patio; the Gîte du Couchant has a shady pergola. A pool-with-a-view, lots of outdoor space and barbecue areas add up to delights for all the family; perfect for friends sharing.
