French Idyll

5 of 5
Having spent a couple of days on the Ile de Ré with all its crowds, arriving at the cottage was an absolute delight. As soon as we drove into the drive and turned the engine off the quietness and stillness hit us, the only noise was a Turtle Dove calling - bliss. Its exactly what it says in the description. The Cottage is perfect, It had nearly everything we needed for the two of us, the only thing missing was a couple of large cups for our morning coffee, but we bought a couple and left them behind - so now it has everything. As a bird watcher I was delighted to find Golden Orioles, Black Redstarts and Nightjars in the area and the swallows seemed to delight in buzzing us when we were in the pool. The surrounding area is typical of middle of nowhere France (in the nicest possible way) small hamlets, slightly larger villages and the occasional town with a supermarket and if you are lucky a restaurant - the nearest one we found was a 20 minute drive. There are enough places to visit in the area to make full days out for a week or so, but equally chilling in the pool and garden was too nice some of the time to bother about site seeing. The owners were away when we stayed which gave us the run of the property and garden, but for the very minor problem that we did have, they had left us a contact number for a local English couple who were around within 10 minutes of our call. In conclusion - perfect, Highly recommend this place to anybody looking to get away from it all for a week or two.

Wow.....just stunning panoramic views

5 of 5
Wow...what can one say! The views from the pool are simply beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. A pure hidden gem!!! When you work in a busy city and life is hectic this is the perfect place to come and relax, and enjoy rural France! This place was perfect for our young little family. Our girls (6 & 4years of age) had everything on site to keep them entertained:- from the pool, to rolling down the side of the little slope by the pool, and the Childrens out door climbing frame. Collecting acorns and fruit from the trees. If you are very quiet and up early you can even see the wild life (hares) from the front doors which the girls where amazed by. Not to mention the dear when you drive down the little lanes. The vineyard and different fruit trees are just beautiful too. We often ate our meals by the pool area just soaking in the pure panoramic beauty. Everything is easily accessible via car. We would definitely recommend the sand dunes....take the stairs as I struggled walking uphill on the sand! Definitely not for the faint hearted. The views from the Dunes. I just can't explain. It is definitely worth being out of breath for. We did a day trip to Bordeaux. (One day just isn't enough). Several visits to Entang villiers lake. (10 min car journey). There is just so much to do and the Gite is just in the perfect location to access all these wonderful things that France has to offer. The owners are just as amazing, nothing was ever to much trouble, always polite and friendly! Everything you need is on hand. So you don't need to pack the iron or hair dryers, Helen has that sorted too! So much so that we are looking forward to seeing them next year for two weeks. Thank you so much once again, the best relaxing holiday we have had. Xxx
