Lovely house, lovely holiday
Lovely property, the pictures make it look smaller than it is!! Well equipped, comfortable and safe. Nice pool and the kids loved the garden. We BBQ'd every night and the terrace where we ate was a real subtrap. Lovely. Close to La Rochelle and other places of interest. Really lovely holiday. Thanks.
Hi Louisa and family ,
Thank you for your lovely review . We are so glad that you all had a lovely family holiday .
Would love to welcome you back again .
An excellent holiday house :0)
Everything was as described and the house, gardens etc were spotless; the customer service offered and delivered by the owners was nothing short of excellent and we, as a family, cannot recommend this house & the owners highly enough!
The house is situated a 10min drive away from the main town - which has everything needed (Supermarket etc). With the house being located in what feels like the middle of a vast farm it has total piece and quiet and we found it a great place to chill out - well when the kids weren't going mad in the pool!
La Rochelle is 30-45mins away by car and there are plenty of other towns within the same distance.
We loved our stay and will be back again next year - and more than likely for many years to come :0)
We are so glad that you had a lovely relaxing family holiday at La Poulaillerie .
We look forward to welcoming you and your family again .
Excellent house with great heated pool. Very comfortable house with plenty of space. Very well equipped and very clean. Highly recommended.
Thankyou for your lovely comments . We are pleased that you and your family had a great holiday and enjoyed the pool .
We spent two excellent weeks at the Poulaillerie. The property is very well equipped and welcoming. It has everything you may need. It is spacious and provided an ideal setting for a holiday with our daughter, son-in-law and their three children. We enjoyed eating out under the pergola with the built in barbecue. We very much appreciated the small sitting room with chikdren's toys and the secure little courtyard where the toddler could play safely. The pool area is also very secure and well designed. We loved the pool. Surgeres is a very pleasant little town with everything one needs. I loved being back in Charente Maritime where I spent many happy holidays as a child. I would go back without hesitation.
We are 30 minutes drive from the beaches and coastline around La Rochelle.
Also within easy reach of all the islands for a pleasant day out.
Chatelaillon Plage is within 30 minutes drive away and has a lovely long beach and lots of cafés and restaurants on the beach front.
Airport La Rochelle 50 km
Railway Surgeres 10 km with TGV links

The nearest village is 2km away and is an easy cycle through the country lanes for your local bakers, butchers and small grocery shop.
There is a wide choice of good supermarkets, shops, bars, restaurants and banks in Surgeres 10 minutes away by car or a 30 minute cycle ride through the country lanes.
There are regular markets in Surgeres on a Saturday and Tuesday, great opportunity to practise your French with the locals.
There are plenty of attractions nearby, from the miniature boats at St Savinien (fun for children and adults) to the ancient Roman town of Saintes, with its great Roman amphitheatres.
La Rochelle is a great day out for all the family with its aquarium, small animal park,beaches, chic boutiques, shops, plenty of restaurants and of course Ernest ice-cream shop, delicious.
