"Lovely House; Lovely Location - Excellent Holiday"

We had an excellent 2 week holiday here. The house is lovely and has all of the conveniences of home (dish washer / washing machine etc.). The pool and outside eating area is where we spent most of our time and are both fantastic. The couple who look after the house are wonderful and very responsive - they even left a welcome pack of milk; bread; and wine which was great when you first arrive.

Location wise it is ideal too. A short walk to the local town with plenty of shops and restaurants and there are a number of supermarkets within a 5 minute drive. Within 30 minutes there are nice beaches and towns to visit too.

We would highly recommend this for a family holiday (we went as a group of 7)

"Lovely old french house with everything you need"

We had a great time. I went with my family of 5. Children spent all the time in the pool only going out for the day once to La Rochelle. House was lovely and enough room for my family. We were given excellent directions. Thankyou

"An absolute gem"

La Belle Cachette is a beautiful property located perfectly within Surgeres, near to the shops, bars, restaurants and railway station. The lovely farmshoue is very well kept and has everything you need for a holiday home and more. The pool is a glorious bonus! Not overlooked, many evenings can be spent al fresco dining overlooking the pool and garden. The location of La Belle Cachette means it is easy to get to La Rochelle, either by road or rail, as well as other places in the region. Bastille day in Suregeres was a real treat and the locals extremely friendly and welcoming. Didn't want to leave!
