Highly recommended property

  • 5 out of 5
We visited recently as a family of six, including two children under three, and we could not have been happier throughout the week. The farmhouse was well equipped, comfortable and beautiful in all respects. Debbie was a fantastic host, extremely helpful and friendly. She gave us advice regarding places to visit and we particularly enjoyed the aquarium in La Rochelle as well as our trip to the small zoo nearby. The pool was a big hit with the whole family as were the grounds and our morning walks around the village. We had a fabulous week and we hope to visit again in the future.

What an amazing property, more often than not when you are searching for a holiday property the pictures look great, but the reality is not always the same. Well, La Maison Fontaine exceeded our expectations on all levels. It is a wonderful clean home lovingly looked after by Debs and Tony, it has everything you could possibly want, a home away from home. The gardens and pool were amazing and the big and little children loved every minute of this holiday. Lazy days around the pool, being able to relax in the peaceful gardens, kids running around laughing and playing, bikes supplied by Debs and Tony for those in our group that wanted to explore this beautiful rural area. The house is in a perfect location close enough to a lovely village which also has an amazing Bistro, Bar St Pierre, we spent many an evening there, Russell and Michelle were lovely and the food was amazing. Debs was always on hand if we needed her, but never intrusive, the perfect host. We loved every minute of this holiday and did not want to leave, we would all whole heartidly recommend this property to anyone, we cannot fault it at all. It was a pleasure to meet Debs and Tony, and you can rest assured that they will look after you. If you do decide to venture out for the day, then we would recommend La Rochelle, a beautiful place to visit and the children loved the Aquarium, also the beach at Royan was lovely, we visited Futuroscope, but sadly we were left disappointed, but I suppose it depends on what you like. Many thanks once again to Debs and Tony for making our holiday so special and giving us so many happy memories.

Owner's Response: We're so lucky that our guests take the time to tell us & any future guests about their holiday. This family certainly embraced the house and didn't feel they had to go very far to have a good time. It was a pleasure to have them and hope they will come again!

Fantastic property

  • 5 out of 5
What a great property which certainly lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Debs is a great host who has obviously taken great care and attention over renting out her property. The house was very clean and well maintained. We loved the space at the property and the rural location is fabulous. The fields of sunflowers are amazing. The children (16, 8 & 6) all had a great time, especially in the pool. We visited plenty of places while we were there - St Jean D'Angelay, Cognac, Saintes and La Rochelle being the favourites. Definitely would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit this area. Thanks Debs and Tony.

Fantastic week :)

  • 5 out of 5
This was a great property, exactly as shown on the wonderful pictures on the website. Travelling as a group of two families, we wanted space, a pool and cheap wine... There was ample room for our children to run around, no feeling of being cramped...the four bedrooms are laid it along the top of the house and the pool was a winner and on hot days, we didn't even need to move from the house. given that we wanted relaxation as well as the possibility to do a couple of longer trips, we had a great time.
I can heartily recommend Debs and her Farmhouse, it was incredibly clean, well looked after and equipped with several thoughtful touches... Including a pétanque pitch (if that's what you call them) Debs was the perfect owner, cleaning the pool every other day without being obtrusive and giving us tips on where to find the local under 2 euros per litre drinkable wine.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that yet another family have found our property to live up & beyond they're expectations. Thanks to them for taking the time to write down their thoughts. We always ask if there is "anything we can do more or better" and have yet to hear the word "yes". It's a great season for us and our guests!

Wonderful home away from home - highly recommended

  • 5 out of 5
When we arrived at Debs & Tony's house I started to cry! Now it may have been the tiredness of a long journey but I think it was more to do with the fact that the house lived up to our high expectations. Debs was there to welcome us and show us around, arriving late on a Sunday evening she had even made sure we had something for supper. The house was exactly as described and the photographs true to life (unlike previous properties we have stayed in). The layout is excellent for a family (we have 3 children aged 7, 4 and 18 months) and Grandad flew out to join us for a week and it still felt spacious. it was lovely to have an owner who was interested and who cared. There are even mosquito nets for the windows (Tony made them) - a huge plus for a family who seem to attract mosquitoes whereever we go! We visited Cognac, Saintes - the children loved the amphitheatre, and the weekly markets at St Jean D'Angely were lovely to wonder around. There is a good everyday type restaurant in Matha called the Pinnochio and Jacobins in St Jean is good for families too. I just asked the kids what they would say about our holiday house and the response was a very loud 'excellent' lots to do even when hanging around the house. Our eldest rode out on a bike on the deserted roads for the first time and our 4 year old learnt to swim by herself. Debs even got our youngest an inflatible rocket to sit in - Daddy unfortunately destroyed it before we left!! We have already made a provisional booking for next year. Thank you Debs & Tony for helping to make our holiday so happy.

Superb peaceful property

  • 5 out of 5
The house looked superb in the website pictures, and the reality is even better!

The house has been very well restored to make a very comfortable home, with a huge living room and kitchen/ dining room, and spacious bedrooms. The gardens, which are absolutely huge, are a real treat, and a fantastic place to play sport, or simply relax and absorb the peace of the countryside.

Debs & Tony have taken great care to ensure that the house is perfectly equipped for both those who want to explore the surrounding area, or those who want to chill within the 'complex'! Our 2 6-year old boys simply loved the pool, the table-tennis, the boules, the football and the badminton, and it really is the perfect environment to keep them entertained: happy kids = happy parents!

We had a fantastic holiday and hope to return again soon. Thanks to Debs for all her help before and during the holiday, and for providing a great holiday home.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that there was plenty to do and yet again even batter than the photos - we will revamp them for next year! Also we're honoured for a guest to refer to our property as a "complex" in it's own right. Whilst it's totally detached we aim to offer everything a shared complex would! Thanks to a lovely family who we hope to see again.
