We are returning customers, this being our second time in the last 6 weeks. The gite is beautifully maintained and to a very high standard, comfortable clean beds, glorious showers, equipped kitchen, log burner, TV and the wifi also works perfectly, but to name a few of the things that brought us back here. The evening meal if required is also excellent and delivered direct to your door, so you can enjoy the comforts of a good meal and wine without leaving your cosy gite and is exceptional value for money. The owners John and Tania offer excellent customer service and are always at hand happy to help. It is quiet and relaxing there and I would most certainly recommend it. We will definitely be returning again and again.

The house is spacious and the pool is beautifully maintained. Our children spent every possible minute swimming, and there are plenty of sun loungers around the pool for lazing around and drying off. The local village of Aulnay is very sweet, with a good bakery and a Sunday morning market. We also sampled the local fish and chip van one evening - a long queue, but worth the wait. There is an excellent supermarket about 5 minutes drive from the house. We visited St Jean d'Angely, which is a very pretty town with a great market (wonderful crepes), and Saintes, which has a fantastic Roman ampitheatre. Doreen and Jim are just next door and very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our holiday here and definitely recommend La Grange.

From the first we felt totally at home in this well equipped, roomy farmhouse - it is rare to find three en suite rooms and the decoration is delightful. The large, covered terrace means that eating and sitting out becomes an all-day activity! The surrounding countryside is gentle and appealing and there are plenty of local walks. The churches of the Saintonge are fascinating and there is lots of interest in the local towns of St Jean d'Angély and Saintes - not to mention Cognac and its area. Trips further afield to la Rochelle or the Ile de Ré (about an hour and a half away) are also well worthwhile. Add to this the warm welcome (second to none) from the Gauthier family, who have become our friends. We would recommend this house whole-heartedly - and we hope to return again!
