Reviewed 26 Aug 2015

Enough space for parents and two young children (2 & 4 yrs) excellent property with everything we needed. the spacious gardens, fabulous pool allowed for easy entertainment plus a good location with many delightful places to visit within 3/4hr drive. We will definitely re-book.

“What are you waiting for”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2014

What strikes you when you arrive at this property is that the owners have completely undersold what is on offer in terms of the property and plot themselves, converted barns completed to a very good standard with a large garden and fabulous views. The pictures really don't do them justice. If you have any doubt about what is on offer stop it now and book. We went at the very start of August and stayed in the Petite Grange. Two adults and two children aged 7 and 3. The property is located about 8kms from Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire (which has a couple of large supermarkets, restaurants etc) and 7kms from Blanzac (a couple of boulangeries and a supermarket). The gites and area are surrounded by Sunflowers and grape vines with great views over the countryside. We were greeted by both Linda and Ian, Linda showed us round the property which on the direct outside has a picnic bench plus a few garden chairs and a stone bbq. You lead in through double patio doors in to an open planned lounge, kitchen/diner. Kitchen has dishwasher, fridge, oven, cooker etc, although it doesn't have a washing machine, this wasn't a problem for us, but may be if you stay for more than one week, although am sure Linda would let you use theirs. The lounge has a sofa which can be turned in to a bed, plus a sofa bed, which was made up (there was enough space that it didn't feel in the way). TV with UK and French Channels, DVD player with a selection of DVDs available. There is a fireplace - thankfully wasn't needed in August! The open planned room leads to some steps which go down to reasonably sized bedroom (chest of drawers and built in wardrobe) with 2 singles beds and a bathroom off this room. It's worth pointing out everything was completed to a very good standard and very clean. Although we had stopped off on the way at the Supermarket they had left us some fresh bread, butter, a bottle of wine, milk, water, fruit and nuts, biscuits (probably some other things but can't remember!). Which was a nice touch. The garden area is a very good size, some swings by the pool, plus a badminton net, with rackets etc. There is plenty of space to throw/kick a ball about - or/and just lounge around. The swimming pool is a very good size - it is shared with the larger Gite but even when we were all around the pool there was always enough space and never felt crowded. Linda and Ian are very friendly with a good knowledge of the area and available if you need them. They'll book restaurants in the local towns if need be or give you advice on places to visit (There is also a good selection of leaflets etc in the property). We took a trip over to Royan, which took about an hour and 15 minutes, but most of the rest of the time we stayed round the pool. The larger Gite holds around 12 people, the outside areas for both properties are next to each other but you never feel if you are on top of each other, although our children would usually be found in their property all the children playing table tennis or having some movie nights together - but as say if you want to keep yourselves to yourselves then you can do. We will definitely be returning to Le Grand Bois in the future. Thank you Linda and Ian.

Owner's reply: Thanks for such a great review! We enjoyed having you here and look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Best wishes, Linda and Ian

“Fabulous Villa!”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2013

We spent a glorious week here, the sun shined and we had plenty of barbecues outside. The house is bright and spacious with plenty of room. Beautifully renovated by the owners who live on site but whom we rarely saw unless we needed to, they were a great help with local places to visit and even helped to order a birthday cake for one of our party. Will definitely return in the future.
