We spent whit week at this lovely house in Fontenay-de -comte. Gillian and Hugh were perfect hosts making us feel welcome and ensuring we had everything we needed, right down to fine details like candles for outside and rubber rings for the children in the pool.
The rooms were comfy and nicely decorated each one with its own bathroom. The pool was lovely and all the family made use of the games room with table tennis and darts. The bikes provided were a lovely extra and were used for pleasant rides to local shop.
The area is very quiet, and places to visit were a distance away which was challenging with a one year old, however a wide variety of things to do. We hoped to use the beach on the lake but unfortunately it wasn't open for the season yet which was disappointing. We visited Isle de Re which was beautiful and Green venice is very pretty.
This is not just a holiday gîte, this is a home; one that is fitted out for living and entertaining.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need to cook and entertain - everything. There are oodles of crockery, cutlery, glasses, sharp knives! and corkscrews.
The main courtyard is a real sun trap - bring you sunscreen.
The village itself is lovely. Nearby is the beautiful Mervent Forest which is vast and tranquil.
