Why Nigel or Suzanne chose Landrais
We chose this property ,because of its location to La Rochelle and the Atlantic coast. It was in need of renovation and we could see what a fabulous holiday complex it would make once it had been renovated.

Perfect charm and great host!
Second time staying here and I love it. Luckily I had time to spend with Nigel and Suzy this time and truly enjoyed our evening together. I have been coming to Charente-Maritime since the 80’s and love the laid back genuine character of the region and people. This area has grown to be a second home to me and my friends there my second family.
It was great to see you again and we really enjoyed your company, we very much look forward to your return in the future. Safe journey home. Suzanne & Nigel
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this charming, rustic property. The owners could not have been kinder or more welcoming.
Thank you, we look forward to you staying again in the future.

Lovely little gite. Perfect stopover for us.
Very cosy little gite. We stayed here on a short stopover to the south of France. The hosts were lovely & very helpful.
Excellent base to explore this area
Oct/Nov 2018 - 10 days
Property is in a quiet isolated position and is the perfect base to explore the surrounding area. Small but very cosy it has lots of rustic charm and is ideal for 2 persons. Only downside was the intermittent internet connection, if this is no worry to you then I would recommend this property as a welcoming and relaxing place to stay.
Sorry you had intermittant internet at first when you arrived at the Pigeonnier, after talking to our daughter (who was looking after the gites while we were away ourselves,) she said the problem was that the internet plug was not plugged directly into the wall and that you had it plugged into a lead with 2 plugs on it! No wonder it didnt work as it goes down the electrical current. We have tried it since and have found it to work perfectly.
A relaxing stay..
Really enjoyed staying in the authentic stone Pigeonnier. Had everything I needed, bed very comfy! Set in lovely countryside very peaceful & relaxing.
