Great Holiday, Lovely House!

  • 5 out of 5
We have been holidaying in France now for the last six years and although each visit has been enjoyable this is the best house we have stayed in situated in a fantastic location with easy access to the wonderful coastline any many busy ports.
The house is spacious and has large grounds to play badminton, frisby, boules etc. The pool was great and very relaxing after a good day out to cool down from the 30-40 degree sunshine we experienced for the full two weeks. The outdoor table tennis table was a hit with all of the family and the kids loved the evening BBQ, fire and toasting marsh mallows under the clear starry nights. We managed to fully relax and enjoyed the area and the house very much.
Definateley worth another visit and well worth the five star review.
Thank you

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We have been back to Tintern Maison twice now and have had the most wonderful holidays ever. It is situated in a quiet backwater in rural France which is bliss but it is also within very easy reach of beautiful beaches and lively towns. It totally suited every member of our family. We enjoyed a trip along the River Charente finishing with a delicious meal on the river side, visited the beautiful historic town of Pons and the fresh fish and delicious meats we bought in Retaud were a big bbq hit. Naturally the wine was wonderful.. We were lucky enough to have been there whilst the music festival 'Violin sur la Sable' was happening in nearby Royan. What an evening - not to be missed! Cognac was also within easy reach and the tours of the distilleries were excellent, not to mention the oysters at Marenne. I could go on and on!
The gite itself was very spacious, comfortable, beautifully maintained and immaculate on arrival. The team who support the owners are thorough and very professional. The pool was a bonus and it was enjoyed by all. The brochure that you are able to download, prior to your arrival, ensures that you feel familiar with the property and surrounding area before you arrive and you very quickly feel 'at home'. It was extremely helpful.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this property to others. Friends who came to visit us whilst we were there were very jealous! All booking procedures were simple and a huge thank you to Alan and Carolyn for providing such a lovely place for our holiday.

Leider nicht zu empfehlen

  • 1 out of 5
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt abgebrochen und sind vom Haus enttäuscht. Das Haus ist überwiegend alt und das Dach renovierungsbedürftig. Es roch in den Schlafzimmern muffig und war recht schlecht gepflegt. Viele Spinnweben und stapelweise alte Zeitschriften im Bad.
Im Dach laufen Tiere, vielleicht Eichhörnchen oder Marder. Sie waren recht aktiv - vor allem nachts.
Es war kein Ansprechpartner vor Ort und auch keine Informationsbroschüre vorhanden. Insgesamt also deutlich zu teuer, denn die Lage ist auch eher zweite Wahl. Der nächste Bäcker oder Kaufmann ist ca. 15 km entfernt.

Owner's Response: Dieser Kommentar wurde leider nach einer Woche ungewöhnlich schlechtem Wetter empfangen, und spekulative Anspruch auf Entschädigung.

Unsere Stammgäste kommen zurück, weil sie uns zu sagen, sie genießen:

- Die schöne, gut ausgestattete, alte ländliche Häuschen,
- Die heimische Tierwelt;
- Die Outdoor-Aktivitäten,
- Lokale Waldspaziergänge,
- Die örtlichen Strände (die glorreiche);
- Traditionelle und historische Sehenswürdigkeiten

Im Übrigen ist die Bäckerei in Retaud gelegen, nur 4 km entfernt, mit einem Gemischtwarenladen nur 2,5 km

Es scheint, dass dies die perfekte ländliche Idylle für die meisten unserer Gäste.

Situated just outside the village of Retaud and a short drive from the Romanesque town of Saintes, the house is ideally situated to explore the wonders of the Charente-Maritime. The area benefits from the second warmest climate in France which is ideal to either relax by the pool or explore the miles of golden sandy beaches of the Atlantic Coast, which include the award winning beaches of Royan and Saint Georges de Didonne, the nearest of which is only 25 minutes away. Alternatively, you can pursue one of the many activities available which include Golf, Horse riding, Walking or Cycling. The best wine areas are also within driving distance and these include Bordeaux, Medoc and St Emilion. Other places of interest include the oyster beds of the Marenne, the scenic islands of Re and Oleron, the historic ports of La Rochelle and Rochefort, and of course the famous Brandy distilleries of Cognac. For the children the Zoo at La Palmyre is a real treat.

Golf: There are a number of golf courses within the Charente Maritime, but 2 golf courses are within half an hour of the house; both are public courses with English-speaking staff.

The closest course is in Saintes, which is a delightful course set amid the landscape surrounding the City. Contact details are:

Tél : 05.46.74.27.61

Fax : 05.46.92.12.25

The second course is situated in the municipality of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, in the pine forest at Maine Gaudin. The most direct route is to head for Royan and then follow the road to La Palmyre. This really is a quite a stunning course set amid pine forests and undulating landscapes; it is a true test of golf. Contact details are:
