                                                          We had a great holiday in La Rochelle. The apartment is well equipped and ideally located in the centre of the old port. Shops, Restaurants, bars and beach are all within walking distance. The owner Phillipe loves his food and gave us some good restaurant recommendations.

                                                          Very Happy Honeymoon

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We thought long and hard about where to stay in the La Rochelle area, as this was our honeymoon. We absolutely made the right decision. La Jarne itself is a quiet village about 7k from La Rochelle, with a fabulous bakers about 3 minutes walk from the house, plus a fruit and vegetable shop and chemist. The property is a 15 minute drive into La Rochelle straight along a main route with Park and Ride, easy parking or buses an option. A large hypermarket and fabulous beaches are just 10 minutes drive away in the opposite direction. La Desirade is a great little self contained apartment with everything you will need. The kitchen unit is small but was enough for our needs. Alan and Tove are brilliant and friendly hosts, and if asked will go out of their way to help, they certainly made our stay memorable. The garden is large with lots of interesting plants and small spaces to sit and relax. Directly outside the apartment is a small private garden that gets the sun most of the day and into the evening. We would happily recommend this apartment to anybody wishing to stay in the La Rochelle area and would not hesitate to go back if we were going to the area again.

                                                          Just lovely

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We had a special occasion to celebrate and wanted a home from home where we could fit the whole family but have enough space to be private too. Le Logis was absolutely beautiful and the amenities made sure everyone was kept happy and occupied all the time. The kitchen was the heart of the house and big enough for everyone to sit and natter the whole night through. The proprietors were delightful and nothing was too much to ask for. I would certainly recommend this to families and groups of people looking for a laid back genuine experience of French country living. Thank you for having us.
