Rural Charm

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and well equipped property - everything we could possibly want was provided. The kitchen was particulaly well equipped, with fridge, freezer, micro-wave and dish washer, as well as hotplates and oven. Set on a quiet back road, privacy is ensured. The private parking and small children's play area, complete with slide and swing, were much appreciated. The owner welcomed us and was easily contactable. A slight problem wuith the pool cleaner was quickly rectified. The enormous outside table coped with 10 people easily and was much used, along with the barbecue. The children also appreciated the table tennis table in the garage. We enjoyed an excellent holiday (even if the sun stayed hidden!) - thank you.

What a fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The weather was hot, most of the time!! The gite is very beautiful, the pool was fantastic for adults and the children. A trip to La Rochelle + Royan is recommended and also Saintes where you can have a boat ride along the river, and is very historical. Thank you Francoise et Laurent
