Spent two lovely weeks at these cottages. Very clean and beautifully restored and decorated. Swimming pool, grounds and games room were great for kids (age 9,7 and 5) and for the adults. Cyril and Agnes and their grand-daughter Tamela were very welcoming and made us feel extremely comfortable. They were not intrusive but were on hand when we needed them. The kids enjoyed the freedom the location offers. Bicycles were made available and the men enjoyed a cycle to a local boulangerie for bread in the morning. Plenty to do within short drive and because it's not a big tourist area most places of interest we visited were quiet. Coast and beaches about 1 hours 20 mins drive. We did go off and explore but to be honest much of the time was spent relaxing at the cottages and everyone was happy. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you to Cyril and Agnes for their hospitality (and for tomatoes, pavlova and scones) we hope to be back very soon.

Spent a lovely week here. Lovely clean house, very well restored in a quiet location. Owners very helpful, friendly and honest. Good location for us. We travelled most days (less than 1 hour) to interesting places - for example Chateau de Rochefoucauld (kids & adults can dress in medivial costumes), lazy day boating in the marsh in Marais Poitevin (near Niort). Gite convienent to Angouleme, Poitiers and Niort..
Pool and pool area very nice on hot days. Kiddies paddling pool also. On quiet road so possible for kids to cycle on roads also.
