About Caroline Williams

I live here with my husband and two cats. We both worked for an airline and decided to retire here and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Charente Maritime.

We thoroughly enjoy meeting people and love nothing more than sharing our home and the beautiful region that we are so lucky to live in.

Caroline Williams purchased this cottage in 2004

What makes this cottage unique

Although we advertise that there is a shared pool with the owners, most of the time you will find yourselves alone.

Peace and quiet in idyllic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Caroline and Chris made us very welcome and the gite was comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. A sparkling swimming pool with fantastic countryside views. If you stay here, you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed at Le Nook for two weeks - despite being unlucky with the weather in the first week, we have ha d a wonderful holiday.

Le Nook is top notch quality wise and Caroline and Chris are wonderful hosts, ensuring you have absolutely everything you need for a fabulous holiday.

The pool, garden and views (far reaching over vineyards and sunflower fields) are brilliant and the location ideal for exploring La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Saint Emillion, Cognac and many more. The property is between Montendre and Jonzac - both nice towns, particularly the latter, with its beautiful Chateau.

We really want to visit again and explore more of the area. We also loved the peace and tranquility of Le Nook.

Thank you so much to Caroline and Chris for the memorable holiday.

A wonderful Gite in a quiet rural setting - Perfect for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly - Our welcome from Caroline and Chris was absolutely lovely - we got on so well with them. The Gite 'Le Nook' is beautifully decorated with very comfortable stylish furnishings and all the home from home items that you need to enjoy your stay - an excellent bed and plenty of hot water in the bathroom - But it is the extra things that make it a perfect place to stay - the knowledge of Caroline and Chris about the area was fantastic and helped us a lot, then the style of the house - the quality of everything - the colours and how everything was put together - the bookshelves, the box with all the leaflets for the places to visit and it's wonderful location made us smile every morning. Our experience here was Amazing and we would highly recommend this Perfect Property for your French Holiday

A lovely break in a marvellous friendly setting.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Caroline and her family, two cats and the dog in July 2012. { The calendar setting does not go back far enough}

Many apologies to Caroline for not writing this sooner.

The gite is immaculately furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The towels are thick and fluffy. The sofa is comfortable. The bed is comfortable and there is more than enough hot water for showers.

The gite is spotlessly clean.

When we arrived I had lost my phone - in a service area near Orleans - and they used their PC to contact Orange and help report the loss! Service indeed.

We stayed up late most nights on our patio, playing cards with their dog (Poppy?) at our feet.

Thanks, Nick and Veronica.

Paradise in the French Countryside!

  • 5 of 5

What a find!! How we will ever find a Gite to match this beautiful gem set in the stunning french countryside, the view from the gite poolside is breathtaking, everything was perfect, every detail has been thought of and you don't want for anything. Caroline and Chris made us feel that we were home from home, so helpful and informative, we cant wait to return.. If your looking for time out and tranquility this is the one!!!
