A great family stay in a well equipped cottage
We arrived at the cottage after a hectic wedding a few miles away and were looking forward to a few days as a family (with our 2 yr old) to relax and spend some time before returning home. Janette allowed us to check in early (which saved us hanging around all day) and even sheltered us in her own house when we arrived during a big downpour! The house was really well equipped for all needs, our son was in the ball pit within seconds of us being shown inside! You can tell that the property had kids in mind - stair gates, kids kitchen utensils, toys galore, even a baby monitor. The grounds are amazing to play and roam (even between the showers we had), and the location is a mixture of 'middle of nowhere' relaxing, but within an hours drive of day trips out (we visited Palmyre Zoo, La Rochelle, Bordeaux and Cognac and still had time to enjoy the property and grounds). Thanks very much for a great week away, we would be interested in returning one day!
I'm so glad you had a good holiday despite the rain and managed to enjoy the fabulous area we are in as well as the house you were staying in. We would love to see you again one day too!
Welcoming and comfortable
Our second stay at this lovely gite in the Charente Maritime. There is everything supplied that you need to make your holiday comfortable.
Jeanette couldn't be more helpful and nothing seems too much trouble to make your stay go smoothly, the exra touches like filling the fridge with milk, butter, cheese, homemade jam bread and every condiment necessary to make your stay instantly relaxing. It was very much appreciated
So no mad dash to the supermarket to stock up and especially if you order one of Jeanette's superbly cooked meals - we had Goatscheese Tartt Cock au Vin and Tarte au Citron plus all of the trimmings. It was delicious (lovely pastry).
I would say that I highly recommend this gite if you want a quiet Holiday in the depths of the French countryside.
Super weekend break
Beautiful spacious clean gite - fully equipped set in lovely gardens. Delicious meal prepared for us on first night. Nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend this property to others.
Thank you. We are so glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you again one day.
Perfect apartment, perfect hosts
We‘ve had a wonderful week in St. Palais. Janett just thought about everything that one could possibly need. We were there with two little children and found everything to make our stay easy and safe. A week was just enough to discover the area but definitely too short to discover all the amenities at the property. We will definitely be back one day!
Belle maison charentaise
Séjour conforme à la description du site dans une belle maison charentaise mitoyenne . Très gentilles attentions à notre arrivée par la propriétaire.
Séjour agréable malgré une météo défavorable ..
Si il y a un petit bémol c'est que le jardin ( très joliment aménagé) n’était pas clos pour notre animal de compagnie .
Je vous remercie pour votre review - je vais allonger la clôture pour que le jardin soit bien clos dans le futur.
