Rolande's Gîte is wonderful. Set in an annex above their garage with a beautiful view of the mountains above, it's spacious and incredibly well appointed.
The area is breathtaking, set in a valley with beautiful nature, rivers, mountains and allot of trees, apparently this area is renowned for its amazing forests and we could see why.
Let's be clear, as an AirBnb this is probably the best I have ever stayed in in terms of quality of finish and specification and also the cleanest, everything was sparkling as if brand new, we even had the option to use bicycles if we wanted but we drove so didn't use them in the end.
Everything in and around the property down to the finely manicured gardens, state of the art swimming pool, etc is of the highest quality, you can tell that the hosts are people of class, taste and have great attention to detail. We stayed for a long weekend and the place was perfect, we would not hesitate to return.
The only very small note of constructive criticism we could offer is for the lack of balustrades on the stairs into the the eves/loft where the beds are, this with the very low ceiling clearance in the bedroom/loft could be a health and safety issue especially if you want to go to the bathroom at night, or if you've had a drink or even if you're not paying full attention as this is much like climbing a ladder and then when you arrive at the top you have to bow due to the very low sloping ceiling. So I would strongly suggest that the hosts add balustrades and handrails on both sides of those stairs, I am sure that given their great taste they could be fitted in keeping with the rest of the quality interior. As it was just the two of us and we were rather scared of the bedroom / loft stairs we ended up not using those stairs or the bed upstairs so we just slept on the very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge which I have to say was probably the most comfortable sofa bed yet, and it opens with a very cool mechanism... :-D
The hosts were wonderful and showed true french hospitality, on check-in they explained everything down to the electric velux windows, lights and velux blinds controlled by remote control.
Highlights Of the Property: We loved the amazing original wooden windows and the vertical folding blinds, they have a great mechanical feel.
Highlights of the Area: Well, it's set in a stunning valley so really the whole are is a highlight.
