30 Aug 2012
Our party of 9 occupied both of the cottages available at this beautiful holiday let. Both cottages offer excellent accommodation, they were decorated and maintained to a very high standard with all modern facilities that you would expect. Agnes and Cyril were most welcoming, Agnes even provided us with some home made pavlova and scones. We were made to feel very relaxed and whilst Agnes and Cyril's own cottage is located next door we never felt that we were intruding and indeed they were never intrusive but very much on hand if we needed anything.
There are plenty of grounds for the children (aged 9, 7 and 5) to play in including a lovely, very clean swimming pool and a games room including pool table, tennis table and darts board. Tamala (Cyril and Agnes's grand-daughter aged 9) was a welcome visitor full of lots of local knowledge and the children made great friends of her.
For the adults this was a perfect get away from it all holiday. There were cycle rides for the men to get the daily bread. Local supermarket just 10 min drive away. Within easy reach of lovely towns such as Chef Butonne (? spelling) and Melle where there are some lovely markets. La Rochelle took about one hour 20 mins to drive to. Worth a visit to the silver mines just outside Melle but generally we could have happily stayed for the two whole weeks at the cottages without needing to venture out for much more than bread, wine and cheese - oh and not to forget that Agnes grows her own vegetables which she is more than happy to let you help your self.
Really there have been no negatives to these beautiful cottages, location and welcoming owners. Many thanks Cyril, Agnes and Tamala for our wonderful holiday.
