Reviews from our Guest Book

guestbook for Chez Ming Gite

The Lot département of France has its own special charm in autumn and winter and the gite is well-equipped with full central heating from mid October to mid May.

This is what some of our previous guests have said about their autumn/winter visits:

  • Le Lot en automne est vraiment magnifique! (Catherine & Maximilien - Comines, Belgium).

  • With the weather outside dropping below zero, we were warm and comfortable in this well-appointed gite. Together with the blue skies and the hospitality of Eddie & Michele we can recommend the Lot in November. (John & Vivien - Shropshire, UK).

  • We have been exploring a lovely part of France and having great fun walking plus a bit of winter sightseeing. Best of all was coming back to Chez Ming - a cosy, warm and peaceful haven. (Peter & Diane - Wiltshire, UK).
