Review

Had a great week at Poppy Cottage. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. The property provided us with lots of space both inside & out. Having wifi and English TV was a bonus so as to be able to keep up with the news / Olympics. We were lucky enough to have very good weather so spent a lot of time in the courtyard garden; which gets the sun all day. There was plenty of space to be able to sit and relax, BBQ and park my car too. The village of Le Langon has many amenities such as a boulangerie, small grocery store, pharmacy, post office and tabac / bar. Fresh bread from the boulangerie was a must each morning as was an early evening glass of vin at the very friendly tabac. The only down side (for me) were the very loud church bells; especially when ringing early in the morning. The nearest larger towns are Fontenay-Le-Comte and Lucon are a short drive away; lots of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars. Chateau du Terre Neuve is worth a visit in Fontenay. Lots of lovely villages to visit in the local area esp. in the Green Venice region. Further afield a visit to the port of La Rochelle is a must and the beach resorts are less than an hour away. The property was exactly as advertised. The owner provided excellent customer service from my initial enquiry through to returning my security deposit cheque promptly on my return. I would definitely recommend this property. Thank you for a lovely stay

Lovely cool, well equipped house

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Poppy Cottage with our children (8 and 3). It was lovely and clean, well equipped and stayed cool even when it was very hot outside. Having Sky TV and Wifi was a great bonus as it helped to keep the children entertained first thing in the morning!

The village is very nice and we all enjoyed the fresh bread and croissants from the bakery which we would eat in the garden in the sun!

The general loction is good with lots of places to visit not too far away (La Rochelle and Re very nice). The only downside for us was that it wasnt't nearer the coast as the children loved going to the beaches.

One of the main reasons we chose this property for our holiday (other than the fab facilities) was that the owner allowed us to book thurs-thurs which meant our flight prices were greatly reduced compared with saturday flights.

The owner was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property.

Thanks for a lovely stay!

Charming property with most amenities

  • 4 of 5

The village is small but friendly and the Sports bar next door had a pool table and the opportunity to practice French. The cottage was clean and welcoming and very English. The accommodation was great for 3 of us but a bit tight with 7; with the main problem being lack of space for food preparation & outside furniture. I wax impressed by the fantastic customer service of the owner and would definitely recommend this property!

A fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent an idyllic 2 weeks at the property with our 3 year old daughter and 2 teenage nephews.

From the first point of contact, the owner was very helpful and very very quick replying to questions.

The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and well equipped which was a bonus and we ate out rarely on an evening. In addition, despite the hot weather, the temperature in the cottage remained quite cool which was a tremendous relief.

The games which are available we're a nice touch as was the small collection of books, however I should warn against reading Alan Brazil's autobiography - it portrays him as a nice human being.

The best beaches were around a 40 min drive at L'Aiguillon and La Tranche sur Mer, whilst we had a great time at Planete Sauvage safari park although this was over a hours drive away, close to Nantes.

I would defiantly recommend this property.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. We are a family of four and the accommodation was perfect, clean and well maintained; the mezzanine a wonderful touch. Le Langon is a lovely quaint village we would love to return. Great location for beaches and environs. Have already recommended to friends!

Beautiful little cottage in a quiet spot.

  • 4 of 5

The owner has been brilliant throughout the enquiry and booking process. Cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a family holiday. Stairs were a little steep but manageable for the grown ups. Village is very peaceful (once you get used to the church bells!) and all the main attractions and beaches are within s reasonable drive. Children were provided for with board games and outside stuff including small people deck chairs! Plenty of space got the 4 adults and 3 children we had in the cottage. Outdoor area was enclosed with good parking. Will definitely stay again! Thanks for sharing with us!

Excellent quality central village location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a scorching week in August and in addition to a couple of fantastic trips to the sea we explored towns and villages such Fontenay Le Comte and Vouvant. The kids loved the games and movies. My 12 year old daughter took over the mezzanine and my 6 year old learned to ride his bike in the quiet churchyard behind the house. A lovely clean cottage which I would definitely recommend.
