This is a very good property for a holiday with lots of space for a family of four. The property is tastefully decorated, clean and spacious with good beds, shower, washing machine, and modern fitted kitchen.

The garden is large and enclosed, with high walls and an automatic gate. This makes it excellent for children to play in securely, for relaxing and eating outside.

The host, Annie, is very welcoming, helpful and friendly. She was very accommodating with our 01:00am arrival due to a late ferry landing. Annie took us for a tour of the horse stud nearby. We enjoyed talking to her and learning about the locality.

The location is excellent. We were able to walk to the town centre, the supermarket, skate park, historical buildings, town gardens and excellent Markets and shops. We felt sad to leave Saintes and the house as we had such a wonderful stay.

A bientot!

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5

La maison, très bien située dans Saintes, est confortable avec son rez-de-chaussée et son étage ,tous deux vastes et bien aménagés. Tout est parfaitement pensé, propre, élégant. La voiture est protégée dans le jardin. Quant à ce jardin, il est superbe: le cèdre, immense, on peut se reposer en-dessous; les fleurs et arbres que l'on admire...

Nous avons eu des problèmes de santé, mais la propriétaire nous a aidés à les affronter, et nous retournerons peut-être l'année prochaine pour terminer nos photos! Nicole Driessens
