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.

The house was beautiful and very well maintained.Whatever else you do try Emma`s evening meals,she is a marvellous cook. Surrounding villages very pleasant especially Coulon and Arcais. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the house and pool but especially the kitchen which was very well equipped with more than we needed. Hugh and Gillian were great hosts, they were always available for any questions but never intrusive. We would recommend the house as a good holiday home in a nice area.
