Guestbook comments from the owner
We've had a wonderful holiday staying here for the last two weeks. This has been the best gîte we've stayed in and we will be delighted to recommend it to family and friends.Nigel and Suzie are generous and thoughtful hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble.
If you've got kids, we thouroughly recommend:
-Chatelaillon Plage - a lovel, clean and safe beach - try "Le Grand Bleu" for lovely food and good service.
-the boats at Saint Savinien from 2pm - great for kids of all ages 0-90!
-Hire a boat at Marans to explore le Marais Vert.
-Visit La Roche Courbon - Château & gardens.
-La rochelle - good for shopping and food- try "Le P'tit Admiral" for ddelicious meals and "Le Musée d'Automates" - an interacting & fun toy museum.
-Visit L'Ile de Ré for some great people wathcing. We went to see the lighthouse at the top tip of the island and ate a delicous meal at "Le Patio" here.
-Enjoy the pool - Thomas finally ditched the armbands! Enjoy!
