-Chatelaillon Beach is easily the most impressive and popular beach in the region and is characterised by a wide strip of golden sand that is ideal for sunbathing.

-The Vieux Port of La Rochelle is flanked by two impressive 14th century towers. Protected by these walls is a bustling neighbourhood filled with boutique shops, cafes and restaurants that boast stunning views of the port.

The house is tastefully furnished,very clean and with everything you could possibly need . Aline and Cedric are charming hosts, there if you need them and unseen if you don't. Cedric explained the history of the old distillery and island. They live in a wonderful location with charming villages all around and great walks for the dog . The river at the bottom of the garden is full of wildlife , beavers ducks swans and fish. We will return one summer to sample the island house to swim in the river !

We stayed at Grange Lapin for a three day break on our way down to the Alps. There were 12 in our party and we found the barn to be very spacious and ideal for a large group. The views and surroundings countryside was breathtaking and in summer the pool area and pool will be fantastic - we could only look on longingly but hope to be back in the warmer weather. Lesley and Toby had thought of everything. The kitchen was large enough for us all to muck in with the cooking and really well equipped, and they had thought up some great and quirky features throughout the barn. Every room had loads of space and was really tastefully decorated. This place would also be great for young families with two great bedrooms suitable for children, large gardens for the kids to play in and no main roads or traffic to be a danger. We would highly recommend Grange Lapin to extended families or groups of friends like ourselves, and hope to be back when the weather is warmer and we can enjoy the pool! Many thanks.
