Great family friendly property

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 10 days (30th May - 8th June) at the property and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our 2 yr old daughter loved the sand pit, wendy house and swimming pool. We also made use of the games room playing pool, table tennis and darts. The owners were very hospitable but not intrusive. The property was clean and very well equipped - especially witht the provision of a cot, high chair and toys for our children. Would thoroughly recommend it!

Maison Poirier

  • 5 out of 5
We had a really wonderful time at Maison Poirier. Three weeks were too short!
The cottage was pristine, very well stocked and spacious. The gardens and swimmingpool very well maintained. Our favourite spot soon enough became the summerhouse where one can sit in the shade, wifi at hand and enjoy the lovely garden and pool. Special thanks to Amanda and Ian for their hospitality (instand plumbing :-)), welcoming basket, local info and just enjoyable talks. Very special thanks from our kids to Kayden and Chris for their friendship and spent time in the pool, the gamesroom and so on. We experienced Cognac and Saintes, spent some time at the coast, visited the Baron Otard distillery at Cognac. It's just a lovely area!
Maison Poirier wil be remembered as the best gîte we ever had in France! Love from Ciaran, Moyra, Peter and Renild from Belgium.

Great cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely property - well maintained, well equipped, clean and very pleasant. The rooms were all large, bright and airy and nicely
furnished. The outside area was lovely - especially the summer house and an immaculate pool. Loved the games room too! The owners were friendly but not intrusive.

Appreciated the welcome basket - the best we have ever had!

Would recommend to anyone visiting this area!

EXCELLENT MUCH BETTER THAN WE EVER IMAGENED

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived, what a great welcome and wonderful gite, the space and layout was perfect & bigger than expected for our group of six, 2 adults and four girls over the age of 14 years, The pool was wonderful, great size and the summer house what can I say the girls liked to chill there , I stayed there out of the sun but was still part of the fun, and a great place to eat alfresco. The games room was a bonus a was used by all the family including the bikes.
The location was central to to a number of towns, Cognac although we did'nt visit it until Friday was lovely, should have gone there earlier,found a lovely little restaurant by the side of the indoor market, very french and the dictionary came in handy (necessary).
Thank you so much to our hosts they were very helpful in person and also provided a great deal of information in the Gite.
We would recommed to anyone wanting to tour this area.
Thank you again.

Exceeded all our expectations

  • 5 out of 5
In August 2008 our family of 8 - (5 adults and 3 children aged 12, 5 and 3) enjoyed a fantastic holiday at Maison Poirier. The property is set in a pretty and peaceful rural setting yet within 15-20 minutes of Saintes and Cognac.
The cottage exceeded all our expectations - the accommodation was both comfortable and spacious and the outside areas also provided lots of space for all the family. We were particularly pleased at the size of the garden where the children could run around and let off steam.
The pool area (always a worry when you have small children) was very safe and secure.
Amanda and Ian, the owners of this property, live in an adjoining accommodation.
They were most friendly and helpful, always on hand to deal with any problems, but never instrusive.
I would recommend this property highly and we will most definitely be returning.

The cottage is nestled in the heart of the Cognac and Pineau producing region, in a small hamlet close to the village of Migron, approximately 20kms NE of Saintes (20 mins) and 15kms NE of Cognac (15 minutes) yet only 1 hour from the Atlantic coast and it's amazing beaches. The Charente-Maritime with it's exhilarating micro-climate offers much interest. You can explore the Marais Poitevin (Green Venice), visit the historic towns such as Angouleme, Poitiers, Saintes, La Rochelle, the Cognac distilleries or even Futuroscope. There are numerous good (and reasonably priced) restaurants in the area and the superb local markets offer an amazing range of fresh seafood, farm produce and cheeses.

The nearest airports are La Rochelle (75mins) and Bordeaux (90 minutes), nearest railway station is Angouleme (45 minutes) and ferry terminal is Caen (5 hours).
