A Brief note to say the best house we have ever stayed in abroad including at least 10 trips to different parts of France.
Carol got us some food as we were running late and provided a double sided A4 piece of paper handwritten with the activities on locally during our week.
Beautiful house and gardens, you hear nothing apart from birds, truly relaxing.
I look forward to returning again.

Truly Amazing!!

From the very first email to Carol-Lynn requesting details on Gabillou there was excellent communication. Emails were always answered very quickly and with full explanation, details and answers. We unfortunately hit a lot of traffic on our way down from the UK and were delayed quite some time, however this was never a problem and we were met at Gabillou on our arrival, our welcome pack was very gratefully received. First impressions most definitely have the WOW factor, the Gite is perfectly situated in the country side, rolling hills for views and the garden is huge. There are no neighbours to worry about, this was especially handy when we had 4 year old twins running around! They loved the garden with the swings, picking fruit from the many different trees and the beautiful pool. The fencing around the pool and the alarm gave us a lot of piece of mind during our stay. Our dog also loved running around the garden and collapsed every night, totally exhausted! The Gite itself is beautiful, lovely old beams, stunning furniture and every conceivable thing you could want or need has already been thought of and provided. The kids loved the 50" TV and there were so many movies to chose from to keep them entertained. We BBQ'd most nights on the huge gas BBQ and sat outside on the warm evenings. The bedrooms are all spacious and airy, fans are provided for those warm nights. Bathrooms were very nice and unusual in France to have en-suites as well as a full bathroom. We used the bikes provided and often cycled into Saint-Barthelemy D'Agenais for fresh bread in the mornings, it is a beautiful ride and just a 5 mile round trip, we even put the children in the provided children seats and took them as well. We had issues with one of our cars during our stay and Carol-Lynn went out of her way to help, recommended a fantastic garage and even took my husband there and translated, she made a very stressful situation so much easier. The area has so much to offer Miramont was lovely for dinner. There is a very good local vet, again recommended by the owner for the passport to be completed. All in all Gabillou is just perfect & the owners go above and beyond to make your stay as happy and perfect as possible. and we will most definitely be returning as soon as we can.

If you like peace and quiet, watching the birds as the sun rises whilst you are still in bed, this away from it all home is for you. The property is ideal for everyone, plenty to see and do in the surrounding area but if you prefer to just hide away from the world and sit by the pool with a good book and glass of wine, then that is possible too. The huge garden is child and dog proof, with out door games on site. The owners are very helpful and can be contacted if necessary, especially when taking dogs to the vets before travelling back to the UK. Can't recommend it enough, have been using gites all over France for the last 20 years and this is the best we have found. Hoping to return in the not to distant future.
