We cycled, swam in the pool and picked blackberries. Walked with the dog daily and rested a lot in the sunshine. Organised a take away but shopped in the nearby small town who had two good supermarkets. Enjoyed trips to St Malo and La Rochelle both to be recommended. Two beautiful villages are to be visited are Tusson and Celles-sur-Belle.and also St Fraigne.
Great property! Clean, functional and ideally situated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the L'Ecurie Gite. Close to La Rochelle, Saintes and with quirky local villages on the doorstep we found plenty to do outside of the quiet location when needed. We had the benefit of meeting the owners, a super friendly family who ensured our stay was without issue. Managed locally, the friendly couple too were quick to respond to questions and more than happy to help out with minor issues which were quickly resolved.
The Gite itself is well-equipped and offers 2 outside dining areas, one covered and the other with a view of the pool, both of which we found to be useful when we experienced some adverse weather. The interior is basic, but it works, is clean and of a good standard.
The pool is well kept and a good size although there may be a requirement for more poolside furniture.
I would visit this property again and the proximity to the other Gites means that it would work for two families of four should the property next door be available at the same time.
