“Exceptional place lovely people”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed a while in September, the gite was beautifuly converted, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable, lashings of hot water in the shower too. There is a brand new heated swimming pool in a secluded position in the expansive gardens. Lynsey and Shaun are really lovely people who made us feel truly welcome. The surrounding areas will provide for many happy hours exploring. All the supplies you need, including some good restaurants and bars, are available in the very pretty small village nearby, which is right on the river

“A warm welcome to a peaceful retreat - a life-enhancing stay”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My partner and I stayed four nights in Gite 2 (on left looking at the main house). The interior is well laid out and a magnificently restored stone wall, made from locally quarried materials, ensures complete quiet from any neighbours. A good shower, toilet and kitchen, with washing machine, complete the tastefully decorated living and sleeping areas.

The gardens are extensive and an adjoining field of sunflowers will enrich any stay during summer. A visitor can always find a shady, peaceful spot to while away time reading, snacking on local delicacies (my particular favourite occupation) and sampling the local vins du territoire. The hosts suppplied a pot of their homemade cherry jam to eat with the croissants you can buy fresh every day from the baker that delivers to the door. A local market is held twice a week where visitors can stock up on the freshest fish and shellfish, locally grown vegetables and other produce. This is a REAL farmers' market with prices adjusted to cater for the local inhabitants, not tourists!

On arrival, one can see the nearby windmill, the title of the gites are a dead give-away, which has been painstakingly restored by its owner. The charming owner may, if you are lucky, agree to show you around the interior which has been converted to a most unusual living space. The owner's father handmade much of the bespoke furniture designed to accommodate the curves of the windmill which dates to the 18th century.

Great value for money, excellent hosts. La Rochelle and other interesting tourist attractions and areas of natural beauty are within easy reach - we visited Ile de Re, the Marais Poitevin, La Rochelle and other small towns and villages on days trip from the gite. However, there were times when I preferred to just sit in the garden and relax - not forgetting sampling the local delicacies, of course...
