Very Good

“A peaceful and restful haven”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2019

We have just had a quite wonderful fortnight of rest and relaxation at La Baie! It was our umpteenth visit and yet again it left us wanting to stay longer! The gite was warm and cosy, with a great log fire. The beds are very comfy and everywhere is just so peaceful. When the sun came out the patio was lovely and warm, and we enjoyed the birdsong very much. With so many bicycles to choose from, a bike ride around the local, mostly flat lanes was about as energetic as we got! Finding a chateau just a few minutes from the gite was a bonus, not quite sure how we hadn’t found it before! There are so many lovely towns to visit nearby, and the Puy du Fou attraction is a must! Paul and Charlotte are excellent hosts, always on hand for a chat and nothing too much trouble. We shall definitely be back!

“Restful and peaceful, just what we needed.”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2019

We had a wonderful 2 weeks. So restful. A time as a whole family enjoying the home and surroundings. The teenagers explored on bikes, played on the badminton court, used the basketball hoop and obviously loved the wonderful pool. The older ones also cooked on the simple to use BBQ that is like a large griddle pan. The outside area was a highlight for me as we had unhurried meals talking to the kids. I liked the restfulness of a few seating areas around the home so you can get space when needed but also there was the well equipped kitchen and two large dining areas for time all together. The younger kids loved the chickens, play area and open space. Paul and Charlotte get the right balance of being very good hosts and giving you space to enjoy your break. We will most definitely be coming back.

“Fabulous family holiday location”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2019

We have just come from from a wonderful time away in Paul and Charlotte's place. The backdrop is a stunning location where you can watch the sunset each night. We had a relaxing stay with great weather meaning we were able to enjoy the lovely pool to cool down! There is a great barn on site where we enjoyed playing badminton. We had a fab BBQ on site too and enjoyed lots of local wine and food whilst watching the sunset. Paul and Charlotte are wonderful hosts and prepared breakfast and dinner for us on our first night as the shops are shut on a Sunday - so thoughtful. Would thoroughly recommend to families and large groups of people - we will surely be back!

Owner's reply: Thanks Trigwells for writing a review. Great to have you here, hope you will indeed make it again Regards

“Fabulous family holiday venue”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2018

We absolutely loved our stay here, and can't recommend it highly enough. Our family of 5 (kids aged 16,12 and 11) had plenty of space to spread out and take our pick of the wide range of available activities on site. We played badminton, basketball, table football, table tennis, archery, cycling, petanque and even tried our hand at fishing! The pool is fabulous, and beautifully maintained, with plenty of loungers and parasols. The kitchen is very well kitted out, and the English TV channels were much appreciated when we wanted to chill out at night. Apart from a day trip to Puy du Fou (which was brilliant), we spent our time on site, as there was so much to choose from if you were feeling energetic, and the lovely terrace or pool, if you weren't. Paul and Charlotte were very welcoming, and couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. We really hope to return some day, for more vin Rose with pamplemousse!

Owner's reply: Claire, Thanks very much for this review. We did enjoy hosting you here at la Charriere and hope you will be able to come again before to long. best wishes, Paul and Charlotte

“A wonderful place for all the family!”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2018

We had a lovely holiday here with our friends, with 5 children in total aged 2 to 9 and all had an amazing time using the pool and the games in the barn! The outside space was beautiful with a lovely big garden for the kids to run around in and the adults to relax in in the evenings! The owners Paul and Charlotte were friendly, approachable and accomodating and also had some great advice on places to visit in the area with the children. Thank you for an amazing place to stay, we'll definitely be back in the future!

Owner's reply: Ellen, We enjoyed hosting your group here at La charriere. Thanks so much for your review, Hope to see you again before too long. PandC.

“A wonderful week in rural France!”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2018

La Charriere is a fantastic place for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of France with a wonderful pool and plenty of activities for all the family come rain or shine! We were two families of five staying in La Baie- in which there was ample space for eating together, playing and relaxing. The kids loved the amount of outside space particularly the swings, slide and mini football pitch. Many happy afternoons were spent playing table football, table tennis and running around the barn. The kitchen is really well equipped and we enjoyed many a BBQ on the outside hotplate. The gite is in easy reach of a local supermarket in Argenton Les Vallees and a bigger supermarket in Bressuire around 15 mins away. The pool is really lovely and our hardest job was coaxing our children out of it to come and have dinner! When they were asleep we appreciated the amazing sunsets over the fields. Paul and Charlotte are wonderful hosts with a wealth of knowledge on the local area. They are always on hand to answer questions and queries. We were delighted with our homegrown tomatoes, courgettes and cucumbers straight from the garden. Our children loved going and talking to the chickens but are unanimous in their best memory of our holiday which was a tractor ride around the field! Thank you for a wonderful holiday we will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Sarah, Thanks for this review. We enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you back in the not too distant future. Regards P and C
