About Jane Harvey

We purchased Maison St Louis in 2015 and we are busy upgrading all of the complex, including a new pool area for 2016, which will see the pool area extended, surrounded by hand built gabion stone walls, a new separate children's pool for babies and toddlers.

Lee previously worked as a MD for an events company and Jane worked in the same company within the Christmas Lighting division.

Jane Harvey purchased this house in 2016

Why Jane Harvey chose Passirac

We fell in love with the Old School House with its wonderful character and charm, it offers truly unique accommodation with generous room sizes, unrivalled outdoor area, beautiful pool area with large swimming pool and separate children's splash pool surrounded by hand built gabion stone walling, outdoor children's play area, indoor games room and communal BBQ Area all set withinin the beautiful countryside of South West France.

What makes this house unique

Our small family run gite complex nestled between Cognac vines and fields of sunflowers in the heart of the beautiful South Charente countryside.

We are perfectly located to offer a relaxing break for families of all sizes and because of our location, which benefits from a mico-climate which means we enjoy nearly as many hours of sunshine per year as the Cote d'Azur!

We have 3 gites, a wonderful large pool with diving area and separate splash pool perfect for toddlers and babies. Terraces for al-fresco dining, an outdoor play area for children, covered sandpit on our upper terrace and indoor games room, all within our acre of beautiful private grounds.

Each gite enjoys period features, country styling with all of the mod cons you would expect in a home from home.

Passirac Old School House

  • 5 of 5

2 Weeks wasn't enough in 2011 so it was back for 3 weeks in 2012, shame we can't make it 4 weeks in 2013!

Simple but lovely accomodation with everything you need for a self catering holiday.

When it hits 30+ you have no choice but to jump in the large pool beckoning you to cool off whatever time of the day it is.

Nice area, inside swimming pool with wave machine that the kids loved 30 mins away for a change if you want and plenty of other attractions around for short or long days out.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 days here and i have to say it was one of the most relaxed,chilled places i have stayed . The place was authentic with real French character and the grounds and surrounding areas are beautiful. There are great places to eat close by and local towns have lots to offer. I would recommend this to anyone who likes the countryside and great views but knowing that cities like Bordeaux (which is an amazing place) are only a short drive away . The hostess was so helpful and nothing was too much to ask. Great to have the games room and the swimming pool so kids won't get bored . If you get a chance....GO !

We arrived in August last year for the 1st time and to say the stay was "Amazing" would be an understatement. The house is rustic and charming and lovely, the grounds are amazing with a beautiful pool and jacuzzi. We could not have wished for a better hostess Louise is simply the best hostess, very friendly, informative and always willing to help and assist you. It is rare that you go on holiday with your family and come away feeling you have made a friend for life from the owner of the place where you are staying. As a family we shall be returning again and again over the years. The family will be staying again next week for a fortnight and I shall update this review afterwards, however I am positive it will be as amazing as the first time. I would recommend this property to everyone, if you are looking for a relaxing break with great customer service and an amazing experience this is the place for you
