This was a return visit as it’s an ideal property for our family holidays. Plenty of room for 11 of us, and the joy of watching the children play and swim, whilst adults relaxed and played boules makes for a perfect holiday. The owners and caretakers couldn’t have been more helpful, also providing a steady supply of home grown tomatoes and we picked grapes straight from the vine!
Just 10 minutes to local supermarket, and beautiful Fontenay-le-Comte nearby. We were hoping to get to the beach, but at one and a half hours drive predicted on Satnav, we decided against, especially as a visit to La Rochelle also took well over an hour and resulted in an immediate return as unable to park, but that’s the drawback of going on holiday during school holidays! Many happy holiday memories and children who all became stronger swimmers after spending nearly all the holiday in the beautiful pool, which was especially welcome in the heatwave!
I really don’t want to write a positive review because I’d like to keep the Gite a secret! However, I owe this to Joan and Sam for such a lovely holiday and for being the perfect hosts. The Gite is a home from home, lovely and clean and comfortable with everything you need. Nice and traditional too. The pool is lovely, warm and clean with lots of inflatables/toys. The Gite is in a peaceful area but close to lots of things to visit. Super sky at night, with the sound of crickets and owls too. Loved sitting out the front with a glass of wine. We miss you already! Thank you Joan, Sam and the lovely Lexie for a fantastic holiday. Sure we’ll be back.
