Dawn, David and Matthew : Just to say thank you for making us all so welcome at Chez Gabrielle. The gite, Jasmin, was just perfect - beautifully finished and so well supplied with everything a family could need on holiday. The surrounding area is lovely and so many places to see that 1 week was not really long enough. We will keep in touch and hope to see you again next summer.
Nuala, Mac and boys: Had a lovely, relaxing holiday in 'Jasmin' in Fontaine - Chalendray. Hosts welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Accommodation comfortable, spacious, clean and well - appointed. Children loved the pool, table - tennis and boules. We loved the countryside for cycling, safe and picturesque. Good memories.
Christine, Rob Em and Rebekah: It was a real pleasure to stay in such a beautiful home, Fleur ( even if only for a fortnight). We will look forward to coming back. Be in touch soon

Very pretty gite

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
The owners of this pretty little gite that is set in a quiet village the vine country, were most accommodating in my requirements, which were slightly outside of the normal. They were most happy to allow me to take 3 dogs and even arranged for a dog sitter. They were agreeable for me take the gite mid week which I found very useful.
I was met by the caretakers who could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The gite was spotless and tastefully decorated, it was reasonably well equipped, especially for outside activities. The kitchen I found was missing some basic things and was only equipped with four of everything which was a little tedious as I kept running out of crockery and cutlery.

I would the stairs not suitable for very young children.

The garden was lovely, well looked after and completely enclosed and safe.

There are some fabulous walks in the area and some of the best beef I have had, try the Charolais steaks - delicious. The villages are pretty here but I found it best to get off the tourist trails and you see much more of real life. The best beach for walking dogs has to be the Cote Sauvage, - stunning with kilometre after kilometre of pine forest bordering the sand dunes, but possible not available for dog walking during the high season. The little seaside towns were lovely but again out of season.

Jarnac well worth a trip as is Restaurant La Ribaudière Bourg-Charente, which is absolutely superb.

I have recommended this relaxing gite to my friends and hope to visit again.

Thrilled to have found this gem

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Having searched hundreds of properties online trying to find somewhere to accommodate two families comfortably, I was thrilled to find this and even more so when it happened to be available for our dates. The whole enquiry, booking and payment process was hassle free and we were given comprehensive details of what to expect when we arrived.

As the holiday drew nearer I began to worry that it had all gone a little too smoothly and that we'd arrive finding the photos had been taken 10 years ago and no longer represented the property. I need not have worried.

The property was just as displayed and very well equipped. It was clean, well maintained and the garden/pool were a favourite with the kids. It provided us with a great base to explore the surrounding areas during the day and come back to relax at the pool and cook up a feast on the BBQ in the evenings.

My only disappointment was that the local shop had just closed down so there was nowhere with in walking distance to get bread or milk. The supermarket is a bit of a drive.

Would whole heartily recommend this property for anyone looking for a peaceful, rural, relaxing base to return to from busy days of exploring.

We hope to have the opportunity to visit again one day.
Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you and your family had a great time during your stay, and thank you for your comprehensive review. The fact that Chez Gabrielle is 2 properties in the same garden allows 2 families to holiday together, without living in each others pockets.

It is a pity Mimi has decided to retire, and I did know the shop was on the market. there are 2 vans which come from local bakeries around 09:00 and 11:30, and the closest supermarket is now about 4 kms away in Nere... but a walking into Mimi's was like stepping back in time.

Thank you once again for your feedback, and I'll be delighted to see you back at Chez Gabrielle where a warm welcome will be waiting for you in the future.

Beautiful, well appointed gite. Comfortable beds and plenty of space. Pool area well kept and clean. Lovely mix of shade and sun.
Very helpful and well stocked local shop. Found the information in the gite interesting and helpful, backed up with independant research before we left. Would recommend a trip to Hennessey in Congac - really interesting!!

Wonderful gite which is well equipped

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2008
  • Stayed: Aug 2008
The gite was gorgeous and very well equipped although there were no bath mats which would have been useful. Beware with crawling babies because the stairs are quite steep and it is difficult to gate them off. The village shop is very friendly and helpful and only 2 minutes away. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool which was a perfect size. A holiday pack before the holiday, with directions and contact numbers etc, would have been useful but not provided and I had to ask for these details. The information folder in the gite could have been more extensive and a vistors book with recommendations and comments would have been very useful. One the whole a lovely gite which we would stay at again and recommend to friends.
