“Feel right at home in rural France”
Reviewed 19 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011
people found this review helpful

A great choice for those who truly want to relax and enjoy a slice or rural France with minimal environmental impact. It has its own spring fed water supply and solar heated water. We got to Tour by train, Adrian and Sally met us and took us to the supermarket so we could get supplies, then drove us to the gite. Once there you can wander the grounds, walk round the lake, cycle to markets, rent a car and see the chateaux, or just enjoy a spot of home cooking and chilling out, fishing, dog-walking wildlife watching wild-cherry picking. Adrian and Sally are the kind of people you'd love to have as neighbours, friendly and helpful, full of interesting local knowledge and involved in interesting activities, but happy to leave you alone if that's what you want.
The animals were great fun. Special moments: seeing Billy the hound leaping wave-like through the fields of wheat, looking like Walt Disney's Pluto; the grey goose defending the new grey gosling that had been bought as a mate for him; sitting on a plastic crate in the vege garden surrounded by the sound of bees, smell of wildflowers, a huge range of veges at various stages of maturity; cycling on the limestone tracks through the beech forest with not a soul in sight and coming on a field of sunflowers - still just green stalks, but imagine how they'll look in August! Flushing partridges among the sunflowers as you turn the bike down the drive after an afternoon's ride. Watching the swallow family leave their nest in the shed for the first time and hang out near the gite for the next few days. La Mousette is a little off the beaten track, but a great base for day-trips or time out from the rush.
