Peace of mind guaranteed.

The ferry crossing could have been smoother, and the French Supermarkets at this time shouldn`t have been rationing my petrol, I mean, dam it all we`re British, their retirement age is not our problem.
And so, tired frustrated and slightly angry we arrived at Maison Cerisier with a degree of apprehension and concern.
We needn`t have bothered, for we were greeted by our hosts Amanda and Ian who listened patiently to our tales of woe, and then produced a much needed drink of Pineau that settled our nerves and lifted our spirits so to speak.

We were then introduced to our home for the next 2 weeks. This was the first treat of our trip, what a delight, it was beautiful, with all mod cons, immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and colour co-ordinated throughout with a very well considered and pleasing sense of attention to detail.
The well appointed kitchen has everything one would need to prepare a slight snack or a Sunday roast, it`s up to you, and afterwards you can enjoy the lounge, or the summerhouse or go back to the swimming pool and relax in style.
At bedtime, you have two beautifully comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom where some people are sure to linger, it`s clean, well appointed, and has a generous shower and bath,a little gem.
Our terrace was a lovely area to have a BBQ or just relax with a glass of your favourite tipple.The summer house gives you the same opportunities, but is covered over, ideal if your dodging the sunshine.
The area itself is a delight with many attractions and restaurants to suit all tastes, and Amanda & Ian are only too happy to help anyone
to find what they`re looking for.
So, from the ease of parking your car, to the ease of slipping into the gorgeous swimming pool, Maison Cerisier never dissapoints, even the weather seems perfect, and if you have any worries about booking as we did, then don`t, peace of mind is guaranteed!

What a lovely place, we stayed for a week in September and had a brilliant time. The house was great, well equipped and immacuately clean. Lovely peaceful location but only a short drive from great towns. Amanda and Ian were very welcoming and provided a brilliant welcome basket that easily kept us going for the first night. Very well equipped especially with toys for the children (aged 1 and 3), the pool was great and always kept clean. Our two children particularly enjoyed the playhouse, while we liked sitting in the summer house watching them with a glass of wine. Thanks very much!!!

STUNNING BARN CONVERSION - SUMMER 2010

  • 5 out of 5
Had a super relaxing holiday. The accommodation was clean, light, airy and comprehensively equipped. Modern but with plenty of character. Loved the pool, garden and especially the summer house. Perfect for a rural retreat. The owners made us feel very welcome and were always on hand without being intrusive. The Welcome Basket was brilliant - especially the champagne.

We had a fantastic time. The chite lived up to expectations and more!!. Everything was finished to the highest standads both inside and out. We made good use of the bikes to enjoy the lovely countryside. We used the outside stone summerhouse for all our meals and in the evening it was magical to sit, chat ,drink and listen to music. It was the most relaxing holiday I have had! Wonderful hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Do book - you won't be disappointed

Fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
Just back after spending a glorious, relaxing week at Maison Cerisier.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by the helpful owners and their sons who provided the best welcome basket! The house is beautifully designed and immaculate, airy and spacious and has everything you could possibly need. It overlooks the lovely pool, with its own little patio area, but there is also a summer house and games room, (and bikes to borrow) so lots to keep all ages happy! The gite is an easy drive to the beach and Saintes and close to Cognac, with its interesting tours! Had a fabulous dinner at the local Chateau, very quiet off season but I imagine would get busy at other times. I would highly recommend this gite to anyone wanting relaxation and a bit of sightseeing.

Summer 2010

  • 5 out of 5
We (two adults and two teenagers) stayed in Maison Cerisier during August 2010. The house is excellent and contains everything that is needed for a family holiday. The kitchen is very well equipped with both a dishwasher and washing machine, there's even an iron and board if you feel so inclined! The standard of furnishings and level of detail are particularly worthy of note. The conversion of the property has been achieved by combining lots of original features but giving a contemporary finish to the living space. I am beginning to sound like an estate agent, so enough of the decor! We made good use of the pool and the games room; both of which cater for all ages. We also noticed a Wendy house for younger children. Finally, the summer house is a real treat, particularly in hot weather. It allows you to keep an eye on the children whilst reading or simply relaxing. The owners are always 'on-hand' without being intrusive. As you can probably guess, we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others.

Locally, there are numerous good restaurants to try, and superb local markets offering a wide range of fresh seafood, cheeses and farm produce. The village of Migron has a village store, butchers and bakery where you can buy your fresh morning croissants.

The Charente-Maritime with it’s exhilarating micro-climate offers much interest. You can explore historic market towns such as Saintes, Poitiers and Angouleme with their beautiful sandstone facades, visit the revered brandy houses of Remy Martin, Martell and Courvoisier in Cognac or head for the coastline with it’s many sun-drenched sandy beaches and islands.

For the children there are zoos, aquariums, mini train rides, boat trips to the Islands of Ré, Aix and Oleron and the Futuroscope adventure park near Poitiers.

For those a little more energetic, guests can choose from a selection of bikes and explore the pretty local villages and pineau vineyards (not forgetting to try a few tipples along the way).
