About the property

2 bedrooms 4 pers 1 Sdb closed garden

Charm and comfort for the family house in the village of Courçon the heart of the Marais Poitevin. Located in a dead end, the house has been renovated and decorated with care. It has a small garden with a terrace where you can take meals under the arbor and 'bask' in the deckchairs under the cherry tree. The house includes a large living room with a sitting area and a dining room, independent of the small kitchen. Access upstairs to two bedrooms and the bathroom is via an open staircase. At the gates of the marsh, the village is an ideal place for the departure of many walks by bike, by boat or hiking. Near the Atlantic coast (La Rochelle, the islands of Re and Oleron are half an hour away) Courçon offers an ideal location to spend a pleasant holiday

My husband and I stayed in this delightful gite for five nights to celebrate our 12th Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we arrived to be met by Valerie Prideaux, the owner, we knew we had chosen wisely. Valerie made us so welcome and showed us around her lovely property. We were delighted. The gite is situated in a peaceful and private spot at the end of a cul de sac. The accommodation was tastefully appointed and extremely spacious. The beds were very comfortable which made for a great night's sleep. The facilities were excellent as was the location as it was half way between the coast and the interior of The Marais Poitevin with its beautiful scenery. A lovely rental home from home and we will certainly return. Merci Beaucoup Valerie

Superbes vacances au calme et dans une sympathique propriété

  • 4 of 5

Week-end de l'ascension en famille.

Propriétaire très sympathique et toujours prête à faire le nécessaire pour rendre le séjour agréable.

Jolie maison aménagée avec raucité de goût.

Petites attentions à notre arriver: bouquet de fleurs du jardin parfumées, bouteille de rosé et gâteau du Marais.

Terrain très agréable clôturé avec possibilité de stationner le véhicule.

Nous y reviendrons si un jour nous disions de revenir dans le marais.

trés agréable

  • 4 of 5

Une maison pleine de charme, bien décorée, dans un endroit très calme.

La propriétaire est très accueillante, nous avons apprécié les petites attentions qui nous été destinés.

Nous avons pu profiter de la douceur et du calme des lieux.

Un seul petit bémol il manquerait dans l'équipement de la cuisine : des boites plastique ou verre pour la conservation d'aliments, une sauteuse pour faire mijoter et un grand faitout (et oui dans le sud où nous habitons nous faisons des spaghetti ou des liguines de la ratatouille et la cocotte minute n'est pas appropriée à ce type de cuisine .)
