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.
We have just returned from a very relaxing stay at your property. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The house itself is so pretty and has a characterful, old charm about it. The house, garden and kitchen had absolutely everything we needed. The outside area at the back of the house was gorgeous, quiet and secluded with the well tended pool and the sunbeds, built in bbq and table/chairs for eating. The suntrap front garden was a lovely spot to have breakfast and read a few pages before everyone else got up, I miss it already!! There were many games, playing cards etc that kept our mixed aged group entertained and plenty of leaflets of places of interest to look through. We would all highly recommend this beautiful house.
