The pool is particularly good - a good length to swim in or mess about, and the deep-end is fabulous. Most Gite pools aren't this size. It was one significant reason we came back. The kids loved the pool 5 years ago, and still did even now they are teenagers. But they had wi-fi too, so that was very helpful to their all-round enjoyment! The house is set in large grounds, with lots of space to play games and kick a ball around. Next to the house is a sheltered games area (which was a barn area, it seems) with table tennis and table football, and a place to shelter from the mid-day sun to eat lunch or read. It is in a quiet rural location, but not too far from the supermarket or boulangerie (we really liked the croissants and bread from the bakery at Romagne, which we cycled to every day). The house is well appointed and comfortable, well maintained and clean, with all the facilities you need. The English TV was especially welcome, so we could enjoy wall-to-wall Olympic action! Derek and Debbie weren't the owners when we first stayed here, so we had not met them before. However, they were fantastic hosts and very friendly. They live elsewhere, but were always available and twice treated us to archery lessons and practice in the house grounds, which adults and kids all enjoyed immensely. They also recommended several things to do, including canoeing on the river at Vivonne, which was great fun - it's a calm, slow moving, picturesque river suitable for anyone, with a couple of drops over small weirs that are really enjoyable (but no trouble for even the most fearful of adults - we had one, and she had no difficulty and thoroughly enjoyed the ride, and the weirs!) and give a bit of adventure to add interest to an otherwise gentle trip (the kids would have been bored without this bit of fun, but they loved it). Overall, a thoroughly recommended place to stay and Derek and Deborah are super hosts.

The swimming pool was perfect, with the outside kitchen and eating areas we barely used the wonderful indoor rooms. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed to cater for a large group. There are lots of lovely French towns and villages within a short drive.
