Fantastic family get away

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jane and Neil for a wonderful week and for making us feel at home.

The gite was finished to a high standard and everything you could possibly need was provided. And if we were missing something all we had to do was ask. This goes a long way to making you feel like you are at a home from home.

The grounds were my dream garden. Mature trees and flowers everywhere. It's ideal for families of all ages. Our daughter loved playing on the play equipment and in the tree swings. There was also plenty of choice for the adults to sit out and enjoy the views. I spent many hours in the garden swing enjoying my book while our daughter played happily nearby.

There is a solar heated pool, that was still chilly in Springtime, understandably, but my daughter and husband braved it a few times and enjoyed it.

Everything has been set up with child safety in mind. The pool is fenced off with a 2 handed gate. The garden is completely enclosed. I also noticed baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs.

There was no phone signal in gites, which I loved, but you could easily get a signal in the garden if you needed one. The wifi was better than what we have at home and very useful for looking up local attractions with google translate as English leaflets weren't common in this region.

My only caution regarding the gite is for those who have mobility issues. I found the stairs hard work as they are very shallow and quite steep. Also, there is no downstairs toilet. This isn't a problem for most people. I'm only adding it in case you have someone who is mobility impaired in your party.

Cherbonnieres, is a beautiful rural village, with a post office and tabac. St Jean d'Angley and Aulney are nearby and easy driving distance for your main shops and supermarkets.

We really enjoyed a day out in the nearby woodland zoo, Zoodesee and I highly recommend that for families. Even the rain showers weren't a problem as we were under tree cover mostly. We also enjoyed the local market in Aulney and St Jean. St Jean also has a beautiful park and recreation area down by the river (St J ouest) where we relaxed and picnicked. Further afield there is Cognac (we didn't go as most places were closed to under 18s), Saintes, that was a treasure we didn't have time to fully explore but wanted to, and La Rochelle with it's port history. A week really wasn't long enough for us and we'd love to come back.

Thank you Jane and Neil.

Well equiped Gite in stunning rural location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for exploring Charente Maritime, with lots of towns and villages with market days nearby. The village post office sold fresh bread and croissants and was only a 2 minute walk. Interesting Châteaux and historic towns fairly close. La Rochelle and the zoo at Royan were just over an hour away.

The owners couldn't have been more friendly and were very helpful.

The grounds were perfect for young children to play in safety, nice pool and although the gite was a little dark it was clean, well equipped, had nice comfortable beds and had everything we needed.

We had a great holiday here.

Simplement parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un super weekend entre amis, le gite est propre, calme et extrêmement reposant.

Nous avons pu profiter de la piscine, de la table de ping pong et du barbecue, tout à été simplement parfait.

Merci énormément à Jane et Neil qui ont été exceptionnellement adorable avec nous.

On se revoit très vite Jane ;)

Calme et paisible

  • 5 of 5

Jane et Nels sont des hôtes très accueillants et chaleureux. Ils ont répondu sans problème à nos demandes. Le gite tout en bois est très agréable à cette période de l'année (hiver) Je recommande ce lieu aux amoureux du calme et de la nature.

Propriété idéale pour les vacances.

  • 4 of 5

Cadre agréable, jardin spacieux et reposant. Grande piscine. Gite bien équipé et suffisant pour cinq personnes mais les fenêtres dans les chambres devraient pouvoir s'ouvrir davantage afin que l'air circule plus.En ce qui concerne les propriétaires du gîte, ils savent accueillir et fournir des infos utiles aux vacanciers. Très sympathiques et chaleureux.
