The house was easy to find and we were welcomed by friends of the owner. The house had everything you need, was clean and well kept and was as advertised. We slept well, using one of the double bedrooms. The house has a large garden, ideal for relaxing and eating outdoors and with lots of shady spots as well as full sun. We took our bikes (all the way from Scotland) and were able to cycle easily to the coasts, the many beaches and the Pointe de Grave using the network of cycle paths and country roads. Beach towns such as lovely Soulac-sur-Mer and the relaxed camping/surfing beach spot of Le Gurp are 10 minutes or so by car, but within easy cycling. Having a baker closeby in the village is a bonus, while supermarkets are a short drive away. Wildlife seen in and from the garden was a real highlight: lovely continental pied wagtails, colourful hoopoes, a nest of black redstarts fledging, a nest of swallows fledging, lovely dark phase red squirrels, jays, herons, egrets, black kites, thrushes, moths.... This was perfect for us, we would seriously consider returning.

The property was located close to all amenities, and a short walk from the beach. We had a warm welcome on arrival from the owner and the property was very beautiful, both inside and out. We had everything we required and more. We will definitely consider returning in the future, and would highly recommend. Rebecca and family

Andy made the booking process very easy and was happy to be contacted if needed. The house was an ideal size for a family of five, all bedrooms were spacious, as was the lounge and kitchen. We enjoyed all of our meals outside but there would have been ample room in the dining kitchen. The large garden was great for the children to play in. We very much enjoyed the beaches in and around Royan which were perfect for young children and visits to Saintes (20 mins or so) and La Rochelle (1 hour).
