We had a great time staying here. The house itself is lovely, it has lots of French character. The pool is fantastic - a great size and it being heated makes it a good temperature. Barbara was so friendly and helpful, with lots of tips on where to go, as was Frederic the caretaker. The only reason I have given this 4 and not 5 stars is that it is in fairly close proximity to the road that runs through Pouille and you can at times hear the traffic and see the road across the field, but that said it hardly impacted on what was is a lovely place to stay, and it is really quiet in the evenings - I just think those who don't like traffic noise should be aware of that. Many thanks Barbara for sharing your house, we had a really good week.
We had good weather and were comfortable in this little cottage which was well equipped and close to all amenities. The village is really lovely - not many small villages boast a castle and an wonderful old church all in the meander of a river which has been dammed to form a reservoir lake. The walk around the village next to the river is very pretty and we did it several times in both directions.
We were not there long enough to do much other than go briefly into the Mervent forest and into Fontenay le Comte which has an outstanding Saturday market. The local auberge in vouvant is a good basic place for everyday meals complete with what seemed like a strong resident English population frequenting it!
