We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Maison Madal.
Our hosts were extremely friendly and so welcoming, offering us home grown fruit and other local delicacies, and information about the local area. Readily on hand if required, but unassuming, at all times. We stayed there when during an unusual mini heatwave where temperatures were touching 40 degrees and were even provided with extra fans to cool things down.
The property itself was perfect for us (2 adults and 2 teenage children).
Everything we required for a comfortable stay was at hand and laid out superbly well. The property was very clean, with full amenities.
Having read about the "Private Chef" onsite services, we decided to book an evening meal to be ready for when we arrived on our first night. The food was excellent and very welcome after a long drive. We enjoyed eating our meals out on the terrace and sitting in the soft chair/bed area on the terrace too. There was also a hammock and parasol for those lazy afternoons !
Wifi and excellent TV facilities were great when required, and the living room seating was perfect for the four of us and would have accommodated five comfortably.
Excellent kitchen – fully fitted, with breakfast bar and kitchen table.
Superb bathroom with excellent shower and washing machine and drying/airing facilities.
Location was great for us – only a 40 min car trip to the beach at Saint Georges de Didonne, near Royan. Also a great open air large pool 1 min drive away. (2 euros per adult 1.50 per child) in Mirambeau, as well as 2 supermarkets and a pizzeria.
Jonzac – 15 mins away – (Wednesday evening food market where you can sit and eat local foods)
Saintes and Bordeaux also well within visiting distances.
We would highly recommend this property and would love to return again in the future.
Spent 5 enjoyable weeks at Chez Alouette, a quaint 3 storey house in Jonzac, a lovely historical town within easy reach by car of La Rochelle, Cognac and Royan and many more attractive and interesting towns. Chez Alouette is ideally located within a few steps of the town centre and almost within touching distance of the local chateau, but calm and quiet. Meals taken on the wooden deck off the kitchen were enhanced by views of meadows and the River Seunge beyond. A lovely spot to holiday with the added bonus of the most helpful and congenial landlord.
