Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Suzanne and Nigel,
Thankyou for being wonderful hosts + a 2nd fantastic visit. We still found the Farmhouse enchanting + lots of trips out for the children.
St Martin de Ré was a great experience for the children with donkeys in pants, the cafés + shops are great for the adults.
The LPO (RSPB equivalent) reserves were great to visit + staff helpful & educational.
