Clean, huge garden, lovely pool
Spent a very relaxing 2 weeks. kids (5&7) had a blast exploring the garden and playing in the pool. Jane and Neil made very welcome, but not intrusive at all. Ideal. Great base for exploring the area. Loads of interesting places within easy reach.
Thank you Daniel, we're glad you all enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you.
Lovely quiet location, but easy to get around. Roomy and comfortable Gite, great garden for the kids
Had a 3 week holiday here and loved it all. Neil and Jane have created a peaceful and fun place to stay. Had good fun with the other guests. The garden was great for the kids and the pool was always warm. Highly recommended. Easy to get around with many great places to visit
We are glad you had an enjoyable time. The spacious garden & pool were very welcoming during this hot summer. Lovely to come back to after a day exploring this beautiful region.
Perfect location for a fun-filled family holiday
Just returned from a fantastic stay at Gites dubois. Camelia was perfect for a family holiday and the large garden was a perfect playground for our two boys. Pool was great being the same depth throughout and the table tennis was enjoyed by all of us. Property was well located within easy reach of both Cognac and Saintes and only about an hour or so from La Rochelle and Ile De Re (well worth the journey!)
Neil and Jane were perfect hosts making both ourselves and our puppy feel very welcome and were always around if needed.
We would thoroughly recommend Gites dubois to family and friends. Thank you for making our 2017 summer holiday one to remember.
Beautiful gite in lovely grounds with a shared pool. Lots of facilities
Neil and Jane made me and my young family very welcome and had plenty of suggestions of things for us to do. These large gites are beautiful, clean and really well maintained and equipped. We loved the large gardens and the pool and the kids loved playing badminton and trampolining and on the swings. There's lots of small towns in the surrounding area to visit with loads to do. We visited Saint Jean d'Angely, Saintes, Cognac, Aulnay and Saint Savinien and La Rochelle, Ile de Re and Fouras on the coast are easily day tripable.
We had great weather in August with very hot days though there's areas in the garden you can seek respite under a shaded tree or one of the many seating areas.
You can see just how much hard work has gone into making these gites a perfect base for a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended.
Comfortable and clean gite in peaceful location
Most helpful and welcoming hosts Jane & Neil, made us feel like at home from the very beginning ... nothing is too much trouble for them.
Clean, cozy and comfortable home away from home. Perfect for families with children. Huge garden with children play area.
Highly recommended !
Beautiful, peaceful, relaxing location.
We had a very relaxing holiday in the beautiful Budlia gite. It was very safe for the children who really enjoyed the facilities. Jane and Neil were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. It was everything we hoped our holiday would be.
