Guestbook comments from the owner
We were delighted with our stay at Poppy Cottage, a very cosy and comfortable house not far away from excellent beaches, the famous protestant city of La Rochelle and the Marais Poitevin and its canals.
The kids enjoyed watching British TV. Only a few of us in our family speak French but all speak English and Danish. We certainly highly recommend to book Poppy Cottage if you intend to visit this part of Western France, which is always more sunny than north of the Loire river.
