Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and two girls (15 &13) had the most fantastic stay at Fabienne and Jon's in the summer of 2015. Fabienne and Jon were wonderful hosts. Always attentive but never overbearing. The girls loved the pool, tennis court and table tennis, while the use of the bikes gave us the chance to explore the local area. The gite is lovely and, certainly as far as I was concerned, bigger than the images would have you believe. The garden is an adventure in itself and we really felt privileged when we were hanging out at 'home' rather than out exploring. My personal favourite was barbecuing undercover in the 'grange' and sitting out late sipping the local Pineau. The area is very nice with plenty to explore, and some fab beaches. We shopped at Lidl just a mile or so up the road on the edge of Royan when we needed to. Couldn't recommend the whole experience highly enough. It certainly ranks as one of our favourite holidays.

Petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

Pour la deuxième fois nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances dans ce petit paradis avec ses vieux arbres, le joli potager, la piscine qui invite à s'y reposer et le terrain de tennis pour les matchs en famille.

L'accueil était chaleureux et les propriétaires toujours aimables et prets à contribuer à ce séjour sans nuages. Merci bien!!

For us simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Fabienne and John were perfect hosts.

The cottage was a lot larger than we expected, Lovely outside space and garden.

We took our dogs and the garden was simply marvellous for them. Well kept swimming pool. Truly in our humble opinn a home away from home.

Graham and Sariah.

Fantastic holiday rental for a family

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday here. We have stayed in this area before and loved it - there is so much to see and do. The house is clean and well maintained and has a lot of character. Fabienne and John were great hosts and helped a lot with booking activities when our French wasn't up to scratch. They had bikes to suit us all and its a short cycle into the village to pick up bread and pastries from the bakery. The gardens, pool area and tennis courts were terrific. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Que du bonheur!

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes un groupe d'amis et avons l'habitude de passer une semaine ensemble. La maison de Médis est un vrai coup de coeur : les pièces sont conviviales permettant de se retrouver pour partager les repas ou des moments de détente (sans oublier l'immense jardin, la piscine si bien noyée dans la verdure et le tennis au bout du bout du jardin!). Les photos du site et la description correspondent tout à fait à ce que nous avons trouvé. 

Il s'agit réellement d'une maison qui donne l'impression d'être en vacances chez quelqu'un de la famille. L'accueil est assuré par des propriétaires charmants qui ont à coeur que l'on se sente bien chez eux / chez nous.

Une belle adresse où nous reviendrons certainement !

Great holiday.......

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to SW France was great. Medis is superbly situated in order to explore the area.

The house was excellent, swimming pool and tennis courts spot on but most of all our hosts Fabienne and John were a delight. They are very nice people who did all they could to enable us to enjoy our stay, without being intrusive at all.

Worth visiting La Palmeyre, Royan, La Rochelle along with many others.

Overall, a very very good holiday for us.

The house is situated in a small hamlet 'le clouzit' part of the village of MEDIS. It is close to all amenities (baker, butcher shop, general grocery store, bar-tabac, chemist and medical center, post-office).

It is situated 4km from the beautiful sandy beaches of ROYAN, 20km from the historical town of SAINTES. Lovely long quiet and safe cycling tracks in the forests along the beaches. Sailing, surfing, golfing and horse ridding, all in easy reach from the cottage.

Other Activities: parachutes, go-karting
