We liked the house very much, it was clean, comfortable and apart from the unreliable wifi, everything worked as it should. The weather was beautiful for mid-October and we spent a lot of our time cycling around the quiet lanes and canalside paths. We had great fun the afternoon we hired a canoe from Damvix! Thanks for Mariusz for allowing us mid-week arrival and departure days.
Thanks Jean-Luc for a brilliant 2 weeks. The house was really lovely with everything we needed. The pool was just amazing - lovely and warm and huge..!! We couldn't get the kids out of it as you know..!! :) We are still eating your wife's lovely jam and marmalade..thank you..!!
I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this property. It has everything you need. It is very private, but the hosts are available within 5 minutes if you need anything. The gardens, tennis court and pool area are lovely and secure (separate to the patio area) in case you have young children. The patio area is lovely for cool lunches under the shade of the trees. The pool was massive and the water crystal clear and lovely and warm. Inside the house are 3 upstairs bedrooms which are all very nice. There are 2 really powerful showers which is always a bonus. There's a lovely lounge and kitchen and a further room as well. The decor throughout is all very good.
The real bonus is the village and surrounding area. There are a number of restaurants (best is probably Patio d'Arcais, right opposite - 30second walk.., but you need to book early!). There is also a handy (but expensive) mini-supermarket 1 min walk away. You can hire bikes at a choice of 2 places (again walking distance from the house), and explore the Marais, and you can also hire boats...which is great fun. La Rochelle, Chatelaillon plage, Ile de Re (Plage du pas des Boeufs is great) are all well worth a visit and only 45m mins. Fouras is also really worth visiting for the beach and fort (if your kids are slightly younger) and is only 55mins.
All in all a really excellent, memorable holiday....we will most likely return..!!
