Everyone always hopes that “this holiday will the best ever”. Happily it has been. The gite is well appointed and just like it’s hosts – Margaret and Brian – wonderfully welcoming. For us, this has been the first year in “France – proper” Off the tourist trail, but not off the beaten track. The garden provided much needed calm and peace and in between sorties to Saumur; Futuroscope,
Breze; Thenezay; Parthenay and one excursion to Cognac!! As for the swimming pool. Like the equation shows – children + water = squeals of delight. The double bed/sofa was a delight : to put up
and put away …. Food grown bought and eaten locally was a real pleasure. Nuff said!

Yes, we agree about our skilful hosts who are open and friendly and can give insightful help when we asked for it, but otherwise keep a
respectful distance to give us privacy on your holiday. We loved the Chateau de Breze – so unusual with half of it underground –
English guide. Sanxay Roman Ruins were atmospheric and the wooden walkway over thermal baths, an unusual and effective way
of seeing ruins. The Chateau d’Orion another very unusual experience of modern art – 36 rooms. Boules is fun on the gravel
path if not a little inconsistent – seems to add to experience. Thanks so much…… J & D

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the region, gite was clean, comfortable and had every amenity we could wish for . Loved the pool! Gite in a great location; close to many attractions and Thenezay, Gourge and Parthenay all lovely places. Villandry and Ambroise well worth a visit. ‘Puy du Fou’
Theme Park a great day out, especially for children. Il de Re near La Rochelle well worth the 16.50 euro ‘Peage’ fee, lovely beaches . La Rochelle also a great place to visit but busy. Adrien, Sarah, Dan and Nat, West Yorkshire

First time in France and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves totally different holiday to what we normally do, but we feel totally
relaxed & chilled out. French people very friendly & helpful especially with our French. The countryside is magnificent &
plenty of wildlife to see. The gite is fantastic home from home withall amenities Margaret & Brian are very welcoming & helpful. Seen some wonderful churches …….. worth a visit to Parthenay to see the Medieval Quarter. The fishing is quite an eye opener. The river ‘The Thouet’ although very picturesque will frustrate you with ‘la poisson chat’ …. but it is fun. Etang de La Barre
