                                                                  We have just returned from a very relaxing and peaceful holiday stay at l'Escapade. We were welcomed with a cold beer by hosts Glen and Mandy which set us up for a great week after a long drive down. There is always an element of pot luck when selecting a holiday gite on line and we are never exactly sure what we are going to get until we arrive. In this case we certainly weren't disappointed. The cottage was as described but had recently been refurbished so the condition of the accommodation was good and is very much as shown in the photos. The cottage is functional rather than large but all that we needed. What sold the whole thing for us was the large open barn area adjacent to the pool. This provided generous covered area with a large table and chairs and a nearby bar-b-que and we were able to sit outside in the barn every day and enjoy an evening meal cooked on the bar-b-que. (ok then we did go out one night). The swimming pool was clean and spacious especially as we were the only ones using it. Unlike some Gites, everything was included. There was a welcome pack which included bread, wine, milk, coffee and biscuits. The bed linen and towels were all provided; there were even fresh towels halfway through the stay. Finally I would note that all the cleaning was allowed for with no supplementary charges and other than a quick tidy up we were able to just walk out of the Gite when it was time to leave. The barn area contained a table tennis table and there was a boules set available. While we were there, Glen our host, marked out the badminton court on the grassed area. The Gite itself is set away from the main house and the other cottage on the site so is detached with its own area with a table outside. The purpose of our stay was to explore the area and we found lots to do including the famous Futuroscope. This is well worth a visit and especially if you stay on for the light show at the end of the day (starts at 22:15). Also worth a visit is Poitiers itself. Poitiers is only half an hour up the road although Futuroscope is a further half hour around the ring road! Also worthy of a visit is the Valley of the Monkeys this is only about a 20 minute drive away. We didn’t venture out to any nearby restaurants although Glen and Mandy had a couple of local favourites that they can recommend. We were very happy with this Gite and would certainly recommend it to anyone else looking to visit this area.

                                                                  4 of 5
                                                                  We received a lovely welcome from Keith and Sian. The property has only recently been made available for holidays. We have stayed in many owners direct properties. We feel that we should not have had to wash our own sheets half way through the fortnight. However that is up to the owner to arrange what they want and not for us to complain at the time. The property is well stocked with many more very helpful extras such as salt, pepper, kitchen role, biscuits, free range eggs, toilet rolls and this is the first time we have had so many basic products left for us to use. There are many leaflets top help you to navigate your way around the area. The small community is very quiet and this is just what we needed. It is a great place to get away from everything. The Wi-Fi is unreliable because the property is 4.5 km from the exchange. However this did not bother myself and husband, but did bother the two 20 year old's who are technology mad. There was a signal now and again so they could listen to some music. The swimming pool is fantastic and a good size and very well maintained by the owners. The garden is well stocked and very pretty. There were two problems whilst we were there, which Keith resolved very very quickly. Overall we can highly recommend the property to others who want a quiet holiday with very nice genuine owners.
