“A family holiday that will remain in our memories. Staying in La Courtoiserie really made the difference. Friendly owners, leafy tranquil setting. Easy driving distance of beaches, sleepy villages and nice towns. Choose from plat du jour and a lazy afternoon at an auberge or zip wire adrenalin. Every day was different. We reconnected with evenings of monopoly, star gazing and watching owls/bats in the dusk. Our two boys (11 &14) admitted that a lack of wifi and TV really did make the holiday better. The ability to book dates outside Sun to Sun helps. The Gite is well priced.”
