“Excellent”
Reviewed 18 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We have just spent a week in the Le Cognac gite. This gite as with all the gites are clean and fully equipped to a high standard. Dishwasher, washing machine, tv with English stations if needed, log burner hopefully not needed and wall mounted heaters, 2 bathrooms.
New owners Sharon and Chris are friendly and very helpful
Outside the pool is clean and well maintained very safe for children. A large patio area to relax and sunbathe
Surrounded by large private gardens with a children’s play area
Lots of interesting places to visit and only an hour away from the coast
Definitely worth another visit

“What a fantastic discovery!”
Reviewed 14 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I was recommended this gite complex by a friend and decided to book a few days break after Christmas before our children went back to school.

The complex is really family friendly with a play area and a large, well established garden for children to run off steam. There’s also a covered and gated hangar area with plenty of toys and an outdoor kitchen. Not to mention the pool area.

We stayed in Le Cognac gite which was really well equipped for families and had the benefit of 2 bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped with microwave, oven, full sized fridge and a washing machine - there was even an ironing board, iron and vacuum cleaner.

The accommodation was really warm with the option of using the log burner - which gave us a lovely warm welcome when we arrived - or wall mounted heaters. For the summer there is a patio outside with bbq and seating.

There are some lovely walks from the village and a small supermarket, shops and cafes in the nearby town, a short walk or drive away.

The owners, Sharon and Chris, let me look at a larger gite with a view to bringing more family next time - everything we saw was to a very high standard.

We are looking forward to visiting again soon.

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Have stayed her for the last four years in both Le Cognac and Le Pineau gîtes. Lovely place to stay, family friendly and great hosts. The pool is amazing and the diving lessons on a Thursday are a high point of the holiday. The gîtes are clean, beautiful and have everything you could need, including a dish washer and washing machine (so helpful with young children). If you need it the TV has English channels. Close to lots of local attractions and if you are unsure your hoasts have plenty of suggestions. There is a hanger with games in if the the weather isn't so great and there are swings and a trampoline in the large grounds.

“Brilliant, lovely furnishings with all amenities”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in June 2015

Travelled here for a month last year, the la charente gite we stayed in was lovely, it had all amenities including a washing machine, dishwasher and comfy beds. The kids loved the pool and they were safe enclosed in the walled gardens and the pool had a fence around for added safety. There is a covered hanger area with kids bikes and table tennis ect. The are is lovely and theres a lot to do within a reasonalby short drive. The owners Richard and Nikki were lovely and laid back, my children can be quite wild but they were never phazed and never bothered you aklthough they were there if you needed them. Would definately reccommend and return!

“Very beautiful and relaxing Holiday”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in The Charente gite for a weeks holiday with our 2 young children. What a beautiful complex. Our gite was ideal for the family and the gardens and pool were fabulous. The children loved to explore the gardens and enjoyed the swing ropes and seesaw especially. The gardens and pool are very well looked after by the owners and nothing was too much trouble. Could have done with a bit more hot water but this did not effect our holiday at all. Plenty of supermarkets nearby and the BBQ outside our gite was used on numerous occasions. We had a lovely holiday and will hopefully be returning another year.
