  • A delightful gite in a beautiful area of France.
    4 of 5

    Our group of four "oldies" were attracted to the Poitu-Charente region by its reputation for a warm climate and because it was not too hilly. The gite "Woodsmoke" was delightful and well-appointed. The garden with its shrubs and trees was perfect for sitting in the evening sunshine and enjoying the peace and quiet of Vouillac le Haute. It is within easy reach of a boulangerie selling excellent bread. Further afield but within easy reach by car are some interesting and attractive towns. Royan with its market and sea front restaurants was especially attractive . We all felt we had made an excellent choice of region and gite.

  • Great gite, absolutely lovely hosts
    5 of 5

    In September 2018 my partner and I stayed in this charming, very comfortable and well-equipped gite located in a quiet village (with its own fortified castle well worth a visit) making an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. We visited Marennes (superb seafood lunch in La Cayenne) and the Cote Sauvage, La Rochelle and the Ile de Re, Saintes, Saint-Emilion (a 2-hour drive away for a great day out wine tasting) and Rochefort (enticing food market on Tuesday mornings), as well as more local places such as Pont-l'Abbe-d'Arnoult (handy for a shop at the Carrefour supermarket and coffee and beers at one of the cafes around the central marketplace) and the smallish but impressive Chateau de la Roche-Courbon. If we had wanted to pack a lot into our week's stay we could have done much more, but we also made time just to hang out and appreciate the comforts of the gite itself and dine al fresco on the patio whilst looking out onto its beautiful spacious garden. However, it was our hosts, Susie and Roddy, and their lovely family, along with Bentley and Evie, the cutest of Jack Russells, who made our stay exceptional. We couldn't have asked for a warmer, more friendly and informative welcome to make us feel truly comfortable and relaxed. We only wish we had been able to stay a lot longer and would not hesitate to recommend this gite for a wonderfully peaceful and interesting holiday.
