“Great hosts in a comfortable, scenic & quiet location” The family gite we rented was perfect for both lazing around the secure pool taking in the scenery and, if the urge took us, to venture out into the outlying villages, the closest of which cant be more than a 5 minute drive. Mark & Dawn are great hosts, really made us welcome and were there, if you wanted, to provide tips on places to visit, restaurants, lakes and the area. We arrived late on the Saturday after a long drive and were welcomed by the tasty meal waiting for us in the fridge and the essentials pack of bread, milk, butter, jam, fresh veg, etc, etc.
“Excellent modern comfort in the perfect rural setting.” We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. Baignes is perfectly located to tour the Cognac region. The accommodation is a lovely semi-detached property with an open plan ground floor and two generous bedrooms upstairs.
The property backs onto the network of cycle track that crisscrosses the region so do take up the bike hire on offer. Farmland, sunflowers and vineyards surround you as you while away the hours on traffic-free byways.
The swimming pool is a definite selling point however it was not heated and was a little chilly for our 15month old, not that he noticed.
The Andertons were always helpful when needed and managed to remain unobtrusive for the whole time we were there.
