Beautiful and well provisioned character property
We had a lovely, peaceful time staying at this charming character cottage. The owner lives nextdoor and is very friendly. The property is well looked after and had everything you need for your stay. It's set in a quiet, peaceful village but it's close enough to the region's attractions by car, including the wonderful medieval theme park of Puy du Fou. The beautiful path outside of the back door heads towards the local church and the village play park which our children enjoyed walking along. We would highly recommend staying here.
Hello to the Enew family.
Thank you for taking the time to post a comment on our cottage. I am delighted to know that you had a good week and that you enjoyed the atmosphere of our cottage.
I hope you will have the opportunity to come back.
Thank you for being perfect hosts
The cottage is full of character but at the same time has all modern facilities. We really enjoyed our stay, the barbecue area is wonderful and very useful in all weathers. Chantal is a perfect host.
The Photographs Do Not Do This Justice!
When we saw the pictures of the gite on the website we thought it looked absolutely stunning. When we arrived, we discovered that it is much more stunning than in the photographs! It is extremely spacious, very, very comfortable and the village is a lovely quiet location, so it is perfect for that relaxing holiday. It is probably the best equipped gite we have ever stayed in and the beds were extremely comfortable. There is a choice of three areas for outside eating, depending on the time of day and we used all 3 of them! The salle d'été is absolutely perfect for evening barbeques. Chantal, the owner of the gite is a lovely lady, who, with her mother, made us feel so welcome. During the course of the week, we enjoyed chatting to her and maman when our paths crossed. Chantal has put a huge amount of effort into making the gite a beautiful relaxing place to stay and it absolutely deserves to be visited and enjoyed. The village itself is close to many interesting places to visit and is only an hour or so from the coast, so day trips to places like La Rochelle and the Isle de Ré are an excellent idea and there are many gorgeous beaches to visit. The other thing you MUST see if you're looking for a grand day out is the Puy de Fou, again about an hour away. I couldn't begin to describe it - just look it up!! It is quite possibly the best day out. Ever! All in all this was as close to the perfect holiday as you can get. Susan, Julian & Lucy
A traditional French village house, beautifully restored and extremely comfortable.
This gite is to be recommended to all discerning gite holiday makers. Owned and run by a daughter and her mother who have spared nothing in making the old traditional village house into an extremely comfortable and well appointed place to stay. They were welcoming and generous with a bottle of wine, bread and well stocked fridge to get us going. Large garden equipped with tables, chairs, sun umbrella, bar-b-queue everything anyone could want. Very interesting places to see in the locality and places to eat. All in all a super place.

beautiful property in pretty, peaceful location, ideal for exploring Vendee and the Marais Poitevin.
An outstanding property in a quiet village location. Within easy reach of Fontenay-le-compte, Niort, Parthenay, La Rochelle, the Marais Poitevin and the coast beyond.
We were made welcome by Chantal and her mother Suzanne, who live next door, the 2 houses having been in their family for many years.The gite has recently been renovated and modernised to a very high standard, and is a credit to them.
Well appointed and comfortable (and refreshing cool inside on a hot day) we have no hesitation in recommending this property.
Chantal voiced some concern, about the English not continuing to holiday in France following our 'Brexit' vote, but i think that whilst properties of this quality are available she need have no fears. Michael and Vivienne Wright.
