Exactly what we wanted

The perfect location if you are looking for rest and relaxation. A perfect cottage with a large garden complete with fruit trees, perfect for dogs (well fenced but with a few gaps in the hedge if your dog is an escape artist)

The cottage is surrounded by open farmland perfect for dog walking, there 5 other cottages all with friendly french residents.
The property was very clean, well maintained and well equipped. It could have perhaps benefited from a little more storage for food in the kitchen but the cottage has a good size fridge/freezer and good oven.

Large rooms well laid out throughout with very comfortable beds lots of space for clothes storage and nice linen and towels. The shower also worked well with good water pressure.

The local village of Meursac has an excellent restuarant La Table reasonably priced open for lunch and dinner most days. Most supplies can be brought in the village, it has a small shop, butcher and baker and the local shop has a van which visits Chez Suire daily.

The bikes were a welcome addition and useful if you want to visit the many surrounding villages.

The coast is approx. 20 minutes drive which will take you to Mortagne, Talmont or Merschers all well worth a visit.

Our english housekeeper was very helpful, nothing was to much trouble for her, she visited weekly to change the linen. She was also happy to share her local knowledge with us.

Before we booked our holiday we decided we wanted a totally french experience this cottage provided that andexceeded our expectations.

We would not hesitate to recommend it and hope to return ourselves.
