LE GICQ

  • 3 out of 5
It was a lovely cottage with a heated swimmingpool, even though the weather wasn't what we had hoped for we had a brillant time. La Rochelle is just over an hour away where you can find a beautifull aquarium with fish from allover the world. Ile de Ré is also a must to see.
Colin and Ann were fantastic hosts, if you needed anything or wanted to know something they would be there for you.

PEACEFULL

  • 3 out of 5
First impression was nice garden with pool.
Going into the gite / cottage very small,I believe we may have been the first couple of the season as it smelled very musty,
Outside swimming pool, lovely and very peacefully as we were the only ones there for one day then another couple arrived.
Owners very nice and informative , try the restaurant in the village of neve ,excellent food and very friendly.
Overall, ok if you want peace and quiet .

PEACEFUL LOCATION WITH A GREAT SWIMMING POOL

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this cottage during the first week of July 2010 and we loved every minute of our stay. The cottage is located in the quiet village of Le Gicq where it seems that time has stopped. The swimming pool was great for the older and younger members of our family. The owners of the cottage (Colin and Ann) are very friendly. Our 2 daughters (aged 5 and 9) were very sorry to leave after a week. We also tasted and purchased very nice cognac and pineau des charantes from a local producer in the nearby village of Les Touches de Perigny. We will definitely come back.

Owner's Response: This family certainly made the most of the 11 x 5 metre heated pool and explored the many activities in the area such as the local Cognac producers for a tasting and tour of the distillery. They also enjoyed Futuroscope which is not too far away.
