                                                      Great family friendly property with character

                                                      4 of 5
                                                      We had a really lovely 2 weeks staying at Maison du Puits with our 14 month old twins and 3 year old. The house is cool in hot weather, with beautiful high ceilings and wood floors, and is uncluttered so as to be practical for young families ( very little at child level that can be broken). The dining room stays particularly cool and this doubles up as a play room, so a good place to retreat to in the middle of the day. There's a really nice range of toys to appeal to pre-schoolers, including Duplo and a lot of Brio train set bits, and a nice dolls' house, easel, chalks, paint brushes and more. The pool is great, and we all enjoyed jumping in in the afternoons to cool down. Although we didn't get any use out of the outdoor kitchen itself (was easier having kids in high chairs indoors as area is gravelled), it's a wonderful space, and we spent time just relaxing there on the outdoor sofa and chairs. There's also a table and chairs in the front garden too, so you can follow the shade - this is also a very pleasant place to sit. We found the beds very comfortable and both bathrooms functional (with the family bathroom also being very attractive - chairs next to the tub make bathing little ones more comfortable!). The two minor issues we had (plug in bathtub and slight blockage in kitchen sink) were dealt with very swiftly by Tim and didn't cause us any problems. The house is very well equipped for little ones (cots, changing mat, safety gates at top of stairs, high chairs, plug covers, kitchen sink cupboard and knife drawers with safety catches). Do be aware though that it's not possible to completely baby proof period properties, and there are some steep steps down to the kitchen and no gate at the bottom of the stairs. This just means you need to be a little bit aware when on the ground floor, but I think there's probably a balance to be struck between retaining the nice look of the downstairs and having safety gates everywhere so I do understand this (and it also may not be possible due to the style of the doorways/stair post). For nice local visits, we'd recommend the markets at St Jean d'Angely on Weds/Sat, the chateau at Dampierre sur Boutonne and Zoodysse. The coast is further but worth the drive - just make a day of it. Ask Tim for the best and quickest route to take. Do factor in getting stuck behind tractors though - this can add on an extra 10/15 minutes! All in all, would recommend for a peaceful and stylish family holiday.

                                                      Wonderful home in peaceful village

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      A week of glorious sunshine in the beautiful French countryside. This villa had everything we could have wished for with lots of little extras. A fabulous home from home. The kitchen is a delight and particularly well equipped for those who love to cook. The beds were very comfortable and quality linen and pillows. We loved the pool which is a generous size and the raised patio where we could sit and relax in the evening. So many good things, table tennis, pool, table football, all added to the fun. Chris and Beverly made booking easy and provided lots of helpful information and a nice touch - a welcome pack of wine cheese and bread. We had a fabulous meal at L'Auberge Glycine in Taillebourg, a real treat by the river. One very small thing, the wifi signal could be stronger. It may be the rural location or the beautiful old thick house walls but nothing could spoil our enjoyment of this home. Thank you
