About Les Gites de Sarah et Claude
I am English and Claude French. We have four children, a dog, cats and two ponies. We arrived in Saint Martin de Bavel in 2004 and have been renovating the forge du Perou ever since! The gite was let all year round and when the tenant left in january 2016, we decided to have a go at holiday letting. We absolutely love this area, we have travelled widely and we are always pleased to get home. We want to share this undiscovered beautiful part of France that the French and Swiss neighbours have been keeping for themselves.
Les Gites de Sarah et Claude purchased this Cottage in 2004
