This year we took our second trip to Les Gites Fleuris in Hautefort, France because we felt that the first trip last year was such a success. There was so much for us to do--castles, canoeing, walks in the woods, museums, the local farmers' markets and restaurants, to name a few--that we could not even begin to exhaust the area and its offerings in a week. What's more, our children (10 and 5) were so beautifully seen to that it simply made no sense to mess with success! The proprietors couldn't have been friendlier or more knowledgeable about the area, and it was enormously helpful for those of us whose French is rusty to be able to count on our hosts to help with reservations, tickets, and so on. The host family was delightful and charming and the grounds, including our cottage, were splendid--immaculate, private, and with every conceivable amenity (and yet child-friendly at the same time). We recommend Les Gites Fleuris most enthusiastically!
