We really enjoyed our stay, the barbecue area is wonderful and very useful in all weathers. Chantal is a perfect host.

This is by far the best well presented, spacious property we have stayed in. It is a coverted barn completed to a very high specification. The owner Mariusz is one of the most genuine people I have had the pleasure to meet. Everything from booking the property, to arrival and throughout the holiday was no trouble to him. He was always available if required and allowed us to share in a little glimpse of the wonderful life in france. This consisted of allowing my son to feed the chickens, be involved in harvesting honey from the hives, offering us fish and fresh water languistines from the local rivers / canals. We enjoyed the property and surrounding area so much that we have already re booked to go back. I would describe ‘La Coudreau’ has a small Hamlet within the countryside approximately 50 minutes east of La Rochelle. The location is rural, the local people are very friendly. This area is known as the Venice of france. If you enjoy cycling then there is everything from cycling through the small villages to cycling on the vast net work of canals stopping off at the local small cafes / restaurants or taking a picnic. you can also take canoes on the canals, which can be rented nearby. Fontenay le-comte is nearby where there is a large forest for excellent cycling. La Rochelle is an historic port and very good to visit. as well as having an interesting history, there are museums, restaurants / street entertainers / shops. There are numerous beaches approx 50 minutes away, for you to body board / surf / windsurfing / just relax.
