Lovely stay in comforable and well equipped rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the smallest of the 4 properties, La Platane, which had easily enough room for 6 people. During the first week we were the only occupants which was nice - but the individual gardens are private so we didn't really notice our neighbours in the second week. When the weather was hot, the outside space was just the right size for dining and we went to the pool area for lying out. The pool is enormous, The house was pristine on arrival.

Langlade is a good base to see both the seaside towns and those such as Pons, Cognac, Jonzac and Saintes. It is about 10mins off the motorway, which is handy for visiting more distant places: Bordeaux, Ile de Re etc. There is a handy Super U supermarket on the ring road around Gemozac, which is the main route to the property from the east, but you will need to go to the one in Cozes (10mins?) for Sunday morning shopping.

We saw three boulangeries on the main road through the centre of Gemozac, our preferred one is the one on the Pons side of town.

Our two favourite nearby restaurants, both well priced, are Hall't Gourmande in Cozes - very friendly and excellent seafood and La Vieille Poste in Champagnolles - tasty food.
