Everything about Galice was perfect; the two houses together suited us all perfectly for my 70th celebrations! Laurent & Catherine were charming and they did everything to make our visit a success. The houses are well equipped and tastefully furnished – much of it Laurent’s own work. the games room was an unexpected bonus. The pool, with its shallow step, was perfect for the grandchildren learning to swim. Laurent maintained and cleaned the pool regularly. The walk around the lake, the boulodrome and the trampoline all had good use and the owners’ house is far enough away so that none of our activities seemed to disturb them. For those wanting an early morning walk or even a run the little roads around suited the energetic ones in our family. We made the most of the fete in Duras and Catherine was kind enough to advise us on suitable activities and outings for the grandchildren. We will be returning very soon.

Simon B. August 2022

Galice was a little corner of paradise. The pictures do not do it justice. Catherine and Laurent were delightful and so very helpful. The gite is perfectly equipped and perfectly finished. Ideally located to explore the amazing countryside. Lots for families to see and explore. The pool is amazing and the barn is a great addition for keeping everyone entertained. We really enjoyed our stay.
