Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2013

The Farmhouse is a lovely place to relax and explore the local area. Nigel and Suzanne are terrific hosts and the local area has so much to offer. The gite is well equipped, incredibly quiet and peaceful and the pool puts the icing on the proverbial cake. Our 8 year old daughter had her first scuba diving lessons in the pool and is now hooked. A lovely gite in a lovely area of France. Couldn't ask for more.

Wonderful for winter house-hunting

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
Had a delightful stay in the Pigeonnier whilst house hunting during the winter. The gite was clean and comfortable with all the “mod cons” needed to ensure it was a home from home, and the wood burner was always a welcome sight after a day searching for our ideal home. Nigel and Suzie were very welcoming and helpful in their local knowledge of the area and gave us invaluable information on the best places to look at for potential properties. The gite was brilliantly located for reaching La Rochelle, Rochefort and all the delightful coastal resorts of the Charente-Maritime. Many thanks for such excellent off-season accommodation.

We have enjoyed the week we spent here in your lovely gite. Many thanks for your last minute offer. Although we were five people, the place was big enough. the children spent a lot of time in the pool and on the trampoline.
Many greetings.

Lovely weather for sight-seeing or just swimming in the pool. Il de Ré is worth a visit and we enjoyed walking around Saintes and the Amphetheatre.
