About GALLOT

I’m 46 years-Old and I’ve been living in Paris since 20 years. I was born in Charente-Maritime. The house is my grand-mother house I bought back when she died. I’ve been renovating it during 5 years with an architect support with the goal of bringing back the orignial set-up and style nased on the knowledge and picture I had. It is my holiday house which enables me to keep the link with my origin and where I can enjoy gardenning. I rent it because I’m keen to share my love of this place.

GALLOT purchased this house in 2005

Nicest Place I've Stayed - Anywhere.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with lovely garden in idyllic location. Everything about the house was almost perfect. Particularly the newly refurbished 'suite' on the upper floor with lovely shower room and bedroom.

The property was clean and well maintained.

Customer service provided by Nicolas, the owner (now resident in Paris) and by his father who lives near by was second to none. His father even took us to the nearest supermarket on the first day and waited to take us back to the house. He also lent us a mobile phone as we were having a little trouble with ours.

The location was also excellent with many lovely places (Pons, Saintes, Congnac, Royan, Rocheford, La Rochelle) only a short drive away.

I would be more than happy to stay here again and probably will at the first opportunity and would be more than happy to recommend this to friends (in fact, I already have)!

In short, we had a lovely relaxing holiday in a lovely place and fantastic value for money.

Quiet and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, very well decorated and furnished (with lots of nice details in interior design), with all you need in terms of appliances for comfortable holidays (machines...); the children loved the dormitory/big landing/playroom on the first floor. Large and sunny garden with nice trees. We had walks and bicycle rides in the local woods and countryside area; there are also lots of things to do over a day or half day: Pons, Jonzac, Mornac Sur Seudre for oysters, la Grande Cote nice beach. This accommodation is ideal for relax family holidays, it is very quiet with a lot of space for everyone! The owner was also very welcoming and helpful.

a perfect place for a careless and relaxed holiday

  • 5 of 5

We, a family with 5 children age 2-14) have stayed in this dream house for 3 weeks in August 2016. The house proved to be a perfect place for a careless and relaxed summer holiday: its thick walls and shades ensured cool temperatures inside. The adjustable screens conveniently ensured a good night’s sleep. The gigantic garden with flower beds, swing chairs, hammock, weber bbq and beach chairs for the necessary rest and relaxation for all. We enjoyed the climate in the region (25-35 degrees throughout, only half a day of rain!), visits to Cognac, Saintes, Bordeaux (miroir d’eau!), Royan, Rochefort and La Rochelle (a bit too touristy in high season) and Talmont. The Chateau des Enigmes with a 3 hour treasure hunt was enjoyed by all (only 3 kilometers away),the Water paradise in Jonzac and the wonderful, clean and convenient beaches along the Gironde (very safe waters for small children!). The house is fully equipped for all your needs and you can enjoy your breakfast, aperitif and /or diners in the shade of the magnificent Linden tree (lindeboom/ tilleul). Thank you Nicolas Gallot for letting us stay in your house, we will be back to enjoy it more soon! And again our deepest gratitude to your parents who are truly wonderful people.

très belle maison e très beau jardin à recommander

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné dans cette maison 2 semaines en juillet 2016 avec le soleil pendant tout le séjour et notamment 2 journées à 40°,la fraîcheur de la maison a donc été largement appréciée.

Très belle maison spacieuse restaurée avec matériaux haut de gamme,décorée avec gout,confort moderne et vintage a la fois avec un petit clin d’œil sympa et discret du propriétaire à sa grand mère qui a vécu dans cette maison.

Nous étions 2 couples de grand parents avec leurs 4 petits enfants communs (14,10,8 et 5 ans )les enfants ont adoré le dortoir et le très grand jardin ,le hamac et la possibilité d'utiliser les vélos mis à disposition sur le terrain plat mais aussi sur les petites routes environnantes.

Beaucoup de sites à voir (déjà cités par les autres locataires )et d'activités à faire avec les enfants,accrobranche,parc de loisirs,parc aquatique, pêche dans les nombreux petits ruisseaux, parcours du Chateau des Énigmes apprécié par tous.

La ville médiévale de Pons est à la fois austère et très belle avec toutes ces maisons anciennes en pierres blanches.

Nous avons apprécié le grand tilleul qui apporte ombre et fraîcheur pour les repas, la lecture et le farniente dans les chaises longues,le jardin richement arboré et fleuri,l'espace qui fait que chacun trouve sa place et son intimité à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur.

Les rosiers sur le mur de la maison et l'entrée des garages avec la chaleur et quelques arrosages étaient fleuris,magnifique...très belles variétés

Accueil du propriétaire et de ses parents qui habitent à proximité très sympathique.

A louer sans hésitation ...nous avons beaucoup apprécié et pensons y revenir,la région également que nous ne connaissions pas est magnifique avec tous ces champs de vignes ,le Pineau est excellent...

Millor que a casa

  • 5 of 5

Vam estar durant les vacances de setmana santa passades: ens vam quedar una setmana i se'ns va fer curt!!

La casa és enorme i molt maca, cuidada fins l'últim detall: es nota la cura amb la que el Nicolas, el seu propietari, ha dut a terme la reforma, i els detalls personals, de quelcom fet amb carinyo.

La ubicació és perfecta per a fer excursions amb els petits: durant una setmana, cada dia vam anar a llocs diferents, i encara ens van faltar dies per veure tot el que volíem...i sobretot per a tenir més temps per a gaudir de la casa i el fantàstic jardí: ja tenim l’excusa per a tornar.

Un 10 en tot!!

A LOUER SANS HESITATION

  • 5 of 5

Maison très confortable, rénovée avec goût avec un grand et beau jardin très bien entretenu. Très bon accueil et un point suffisamment rare pour être souligné: la maison était impeccable à notre arrivée. Calme assuré et en même temps beaucoup de choses à visiter aux alentours. A ne pas manquer: Talmont sur Gironde, la Côte Sauvage. Pour les enfants: le Paléosite et le Château des Enigmes

Nous recommandons cette location pour les amateurs de nature, de calme, d'espace et de visites culturelles
