Excellent House in an Great Position in Saintes

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a cold day in January and the owners had left the heating on for us and made sure that we had plenty of logs for the log burner in the lounge.

The house is situated in a great position in the town centre, just a stroll from restaurants, bars and shops - too numerous to mention. There is a weekly market literally just across the road on the market place. Parking is easy and free right outside the door.

It is a very spacious house with 3 large bedrooms and a large family bathroom, huge lounge with an equally large kitchen and beautiful outside area.

Outside there is a pretty, sunny and enclosed courtyard which is ideal for families with children. This can be access from the lounge and the kitchen.

The dining kitchen is well equipped and also very spacious and can easily accommodate 8 people around the dining table. Patio doors lead out on to the enclosed courtyard which makes dining outside very comfortable. There is a washing machine.

We stayed in the really delightful, bright and sunny bedroom with the 4 poster bed with double aspect windows to the front and also overlooking the rear courtyard.

The lounge is huge with plenty of comfortable sofas and a big log burner which we made good use of in February. The lounge is sunny and bright.

Overall we thought the house was absolutely excellent and really good value for the very modest prices. The owners obviously look after the property well and we found them to be very accommodating as this was a last minute booking.

We are returning in September and have no hesitation is recommending this property.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely few days in Saintes with our two boys. The house was big enough for all of us, the kids had plenty of room the run around and they loved the courtyard as it was totally enclosed.

The house is well equipped and very clean.

The owners are really friendly and were there to meet us when we arrived. They offered to show us around and advised us on all the places in local area.

The property is in a great location in the town, everything is in walking distance. we only used our car to visit cognac and the beautiful beaches which are only 30 minutes away.

The town itself is great with lots of places to eat and some great shops(especially the house shop in the middle of town!)

We will definitely be returning in the summer.

We keep coming back for more!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent another idyllic week (our 5th visit!) in this fantastic property and we will most definitely be back again ass soon as possible. This is a beautiful region with lots to explore and this house is just the most fantastic base. The town of Saintes has everything you could possibly need or want and we discover something new with each visit.

Steve and Lorraine are an absolute delight and we have built a lovely friendship with them now. They're very informative with regards to places to visit, local amenities and are incredibly helpful too - they have picked us up from the local train station & taken us to the house.They have also very generously invited us to their beautiful home (15 min drive from the house) in order that we could make use of their gorgeous swimming pool - sheer heaven!

We're now looking forward to our next visit & will be making that booking at the earliest opportunity. Miss this, miss out :)

A house with character in the centre of Saintes

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year of stay in this great house - built around a large & lovely courtyard providing a sense of space & tranquility. The lounge is huge with a cable TV which has countless English channels. The house has 3 comfortable bedrooms upstairs which are ideal for a big family. It is well-situated close to the centre of town and the wonderful Super U supermarket. The markets in Saintes are unique in their range of products and number of stalls. Shopping for food in Saintes is a joy and should not be missed. In town there are many inexpensive coffee shops with very friendly service. Lorraine and Steve are very helpful and always provide a warm welcome. We will certainly return for a 3rd time!!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Lorraine were there to greet us when we arrived. The house was spacious, clean and very well located to everything we could ask for in Saintes. There were 7 of us staying there and plenty of room for everyone. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if the opportunity arises and I'm lucky enough to visit this part of France. We LOVED it!
