This house is absolutely fantastic! We have never stayed anywhere so well equipped before - from ice cream maker to pool inflatables to bags for supermarket shopping via swingball, Dyson sweeper, perfect showers, pestle and mortar (which we used a lot with the herbs growing in the garden!) to the gorgeous swimming pool. The beds were comfy and indoor and outdoor seating was also very comfortable so lounging around was a breeze! It is a peaceful, isolated spot perfect for total relaxation but only a short drive to Cognac which is a lovely town or Saintes which is equally nice. A lovely couple came in to change the beds and treat the pool once a week and were available for any help needed. The pre-visit details pack was informative and the welcome package and folder were great. We needed to visit a doctor for swimmer's ear and information was in the folder, we needed to get our pet's passport stamped etc and the information was in the folder - the owners have truly tried to think of every eventuality and have been very successful in doing so. Thank you for allowing us to use your house - it really is quite something and we have had a wonderful holiday. I've run out of superlatives - this really is a fabulous house and venue for a holiday.

This property is really lovely and exactly what it said on the tin!
Lovely pool and lovely interior, comfy beds and gorgeous garden. All exactly as we expected from the website and super directions. Tony and Penny were extremely helpful owners and also gave us lots of useful info and links before our stay about possibilities for activities. They even sent us a text reminder about the rubbish collection which was most helpful. Even in the blazing heat-wave there were enough shady spots to be comfortable! The instruction manuals were a bit daunting and I was surprised to read that we were to "leave the property exactly as we found it" ( or words to that effect) as we assumed that there would be cleaners coming in between 10 and 4 on departure day. ( which there were) . In fact, what we think was meant is that we were to return all items to their correct place where we had found them. This is quite understandable, but the wording had me quite unnecessarily concerned. I loved the region and the Roman amphitheatre at Saintes is well worth a visit. A great place to stay. SE
