Our Cottages

What our guests say

Exceptional cottage, everything is perfect, everything is thought out so that each person finds happiness. In the middle of nature, a true haven of peace. Many games and activities for children. Organized evenings. It’s really awesome !


A heavenly place your children won’t want to leave. Between ponies, swing, bike and freedom. Beautiful walks, calm, a magnificent view from your terrace, adorable hosts who are concerned that your stay is perfect.





Where to start? Mariken and Ron are absolutely charming and infused their personality into the place. The estate is a real paradise, where everyone can find their account, provided of course that they like rural and rustic environments; but a priori, if you choose a gîte on the farm, that’s what you’re looking for. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped, and the wood stove brings a very pleasant warmth. Mariken and Ron have easy contact with both adults and children, and their domain is conducive to meeting other travellers. The pizza evening will remain absolutely unforgettable. We will definitely be back!
