In 2005, I inherited a beautiful piece of land with a sea view at 800 m. I then decided to build 4 gites, then 2 others in 2007. The weather not being always at its best, I decide in 2010 to build a covered swimming pool to ensure the happiness of all and in all seasons. The same year I built 4 other gites for people with reduced mobility to complete my offer. All my gites are certified “Gîtes de France” in 4 ears of corn.
I like to welcome people into clean, well-equipped homes. Making people feel comfortable right away. The day of arrival is really dedicated to the well-being of the people (parents and children). A welcome drink on Sunday so that we get to know each other and we then suggest activities to do or places to discover in our commune, but also in a perimeter of 100 km around.
I love to talk about my region, its history, what it lives. Our village is small and I try to offer things adapted to families depending on the number of children, age… Generally, when people leave the welcome pot, they know what they are going to do each day… Every week in the summer, we offer 2 activities. One with the children who leave with a naturalist animator to discover the bay. Another animation is open to all to taste the local products!
What I find very interesting in the network is the sharing of experiences. There is always someone in the network who has the answer to your question! The charter also appealed to me because it is based on human relations. The promotion of our villages through trade shows, for example, is a major asset.
The Village of Combas in the Perigord which represents the philosophy of the gite villages very well.
No particular anecdotes, only shared moments!
