Beautiful house in a super area
Lovely, tranquil, old, cool house and garden in a great area for accessing coast and inland. Pictures of house and garden need a little updating (e.g no baby swing) but general beauty and space and tranquility as shown and described. Great communication with owner who resolved any difficulties we had promptly and efficiently. Would recommend to families or group.
great house with lovely big garden in rural area
We loved our stay at Les Mojhettes. The property was well maintained and had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. The garden was big and very private and great to relax in when we returned from exploring this lovely rural area of western France. We certainly could recommend it in the future to friends. We explored much of the area and there was a great variety of places to see. We loved our visit to Cognac to the distillery and enjoyed La Rochelle and Ile de Re. The Venise Verte is also worth a visit. I found the village markets wonderful for fresh fish, chicken, fruit and veg. Overall such a relaxing stay in France. Thanks to the owner, Vicki, for a stay in this lovely house in the Charente Poitou.
great value rental - great house and garden
spent a very relaxed holiday in this large property. House had everything we needed and garden was spacious and private. We could recommend this rental for a stay in this lovely rural part of western france
Wonderful house for a family
This house is a wonderful place to stay, especially for a young family. It is great for babies and children with a 'proper' cot, lots of toys, stairgates, high chair and change mat provided.
The garden is secluded and large with swings, bikes and a sandpit - our 3 year old was in her element and our 8 month old just sat and watched her! When the weather was good enough we enjoyed eating outside in the evenings (and a few games of table tennis!)
Having 2 bathrooms was great (brilliant shower) and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need.
Vicki is really prompt in answering any questions and very helpful before, during and after our stay (even helping us locate a left behing teddy).
I can't recommend this property enough - the photos do not do justice to the size of the garden and house.
It's good to hear that our visitors enjoy the property as much as we do!
Wonderful restful week
We arrived having spent a week in a Eurocamp which had its plus points but this was planned to be the more relaxing leg of the holiday - we weren't disappointed. The accommodation is superb with all of the necessary amenities provided. This was our first experience of a gite and I think that we were a little spoilt. It was clean and well presented, the pictures are an accurate reflection of the state of the property.
Chaban is a really peaceful village and the neighbours are very welcoming without being intrusive. Our kids loved the table tennis table, bikes and other toys that were left for their use, there's plenty of bike rides to go on although ours were a bit too young to go exploring too far.
The nearest beach is a bit of a drive away but we were prepared for that, Fouras, Il de Re (16 Eur toll though) and La Rochelle are all worth a visit; a car is a must but the destination is usually worth the effort of getting there.
We found Vicki very easy to deal with and there's a lot of handy information around to help you plan and make the best of your holiday. There's a really handy local supermarket a short drive away.
It was such a safe and spacious environment for a family with young children - we can't recommend it highly enough, we'll hopefully be making another trip there soon as there is so much that we didn't get time to see and do.
We had a really good holiday at Les Mojhettes. Excellent and peaceful location, close enough to the coast and many other attractions.
The property has been renovated to a good standard; it was clean, well maintained, spacious and well equipped, particularly the kitchen with the dishwasher, large fridge and great size family table.
The children had a lovely time playing badminton, table tennis and volleyball with Vicki's children and that was a real bonus.
Vicki made the booking process and holiday very relaxed.
Activities and attractions in the local area we liked included the beach at Fouras, La Rochelle (port, town and aquarium), boat hire at Arcais and the high ropes centre near La Rochelle.
A week really wasn't long enough, we hope to go back next year and would recommend it to others too.
