Whether you have travelled to France many times, or if it’s your first visit, we welcome you to stay with us, and experience the peaceful and relaxing French rural way of life.

Behind Emerald & Jade Gites, is our family : Fiona, Barry, Siena & Hugo. We also have a fair amount of cats!

Guest Reviews

Fantastic break over the long Easter weekend, we were looking for peace and quiet, this was absolutely perfect. Great to be able to let little ones run around outside. Gite was impeccably clean and very nicely decorated and equipped (including cot/high chair). Lots of lovely little villages and churches nearby, lots of nature too – we even saw an otter in the river!
