Idyllic location by the river, so peaceful but with all the local amenities you need nearby (and within walking distance). Everything in the house you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. Will be back!

                                                                                                      I will start by saying that although there were only 6 of us staying there, Antony, the owner opened up the additional cottage next door as it was vacant for the week which allowed us even more space at no extra cost. This was thoroughly decent of him and indicates we were renting from someone who was genuinely keen on us having a good time. All that said there was more than adequate space in the main gite. We have stayed in numerous gites with Owners Direct in France, and whilst some have been finished to a higher standard, none have represented better value for money. For what we paid it was excellent. We wanted something for our grown up family with a pool at a reasonable price and this one fitted the bill perfectly. Great level of kit in the property, kitchen utensils, towels, seats, loungers, games, books, outside eating area, BBQ etc and the table tennis went down a treat. Also enjoyed an evening in the elevated bar where we kept dry, enjoyed a drink but were immersed in a late summer storm - spectacular. This is also a great area of France where a day out and evening meal in La Rochelle is a must - in our opinion you need a car at this location. Cognac is also great, with various tours available of the local Chateaux de Cognac distilleries. Julie lives in the village and was on hand to deal with any questions etc - she was also able to give advice on where to visit (useful to have a local contact where the language is not a barrier). Antony also reimbursed our security payment within 2 weeks without the need to be prompted which is not always the case. Overall we had a great time and would absolutely recommend this property as superb value for money - thankyou Antony!

From the first we felt totally at home in this well equipped, roomy farmhouse - it is rare to find three en suite rooms and the decoration is delightful. The large, covered terrace means that eating and sitting out becomes an all-day activity! The surrounding countryside is gentle and appealing and there are plenty of local walks. The churches of the Saintonge are fascinating and there is lots of interest in the local towns of St Jean d'Angély and Saintes - not to mention Cognac and its area. Trips further afield to la Rochelle or the Ile de Ré (about an hour and a half away) are also well worthwhile. Add to this the warm welcome (second to none) from the Gauthier family, who have become our friends. We would recommend this house whole-heartedly - and we hope to return again!
