With infiniti pool, table tennis, pool table and other activities our nine children, ages 3 - 16 disappeared into the facilities and were totally happy for the week. Our family party of 17 were comfortably accommodated and the enormous kitchen made catering easy and eating, whether inside or outside, a pleasure. The house is completely isolated in the country(therefore safe) but this is no problem with morning croissants in l'Hermenault (2km), major supermarkets in Fontenay-le-Compte (10km), adventure parks and good walking at Mervent and Vouvant (10km). A hightlight of our visit was a magnificent meal of prime rib plus trimmings , cooked by the friendly owner(make sure you ask for a seafood first course!). We recommend this property unreservedly although you really need a big party to enjoy the facilities to the full.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The swimming pool and it's enclosure was a great place to spend the afternoon / early evening after a day visiting the many attractions within a 45 minute drive. A bonus was the large garden with hammock which provided another shaded area to escape the sun and lose yourself in your book The holiday home was in a small quiet hamlet and a 5 minute bike ride for our children to the local village to pick up your daily baguette. Would definitely go back!
