                                      Lovely house with great gardens and large balcony

                                      4 of 5
                                      The house was clean, well equipped and felt very welcoming. We spent most of time in the garden or on the very large balcony, which had beautiful views of Fontenay Le Comte. Great location on the edge of Mervent Forest, with it's walks & lovely villages and within easy striking distance of the coast. The design of the house allowed different parties to retire at the end of the day to their own section of the house. Handy if different age groups and pets are taken on holiday. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys rural France.

                                      A house full of character

                                      4 of 5
                                      Lovely old house, full of character. All mod cons including wi fi and efficient central heating and hot water. Located in hamlet of Charzais and very quiet, though only a field's length away from the suburbs of Fontenay la Compte, the centre of which is full of character. Owners provided very good customer service, anxious that we got maximum enjoyment from our stay. They are continually developing the property and no doubt have plans for the grounds. Games are provided (rackets etc) but kids swings/climbing frames would be a good addition in due course. The zoo at Mervent is great, and Puy de Fuy a stunning theme park about an hour away.
