But apart from seeing something of the surrounding area, it's important to spend some time at Les Cygnes itself. The old farmhouse and converted barns are surrounded by rolling French countryside, and the nearby villages have a calm, unhurried air. We shall certainly return

We spent a wonderful week in late October. The gites are imaginatively converted and furnished to a very high standard, Also ideally placed for day trips. But apart from seeing something of the surrounding area, it's important to spend some time at Les Cygnes itself. The old farmhouse and converted barns are surrounded by rolling French countryside, and the nearby villages have a calm, unhurried air. We shall certainly return
