“Relaxing holiday for all the family- happy kids=>happy parents”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

La Gaitrie is a spacious, well kept, clean and well equipped property. This was our 4th year holidaying in a large house with pool in France and it was the nicest one so far. Our kids range in age from 10 to 16. They played table football, table tennis, boules, board games, watched some tv and had a swim every day in the beautiful clean infinity pool. (The fact it was heated and lit at night meant we could enjoy a swim under the stars after dark). They all had their own room and had plenty of places to get away from us in this huge house! The wi-fi access meant they could keep in touch with things at home. Dad brought our skycard and could watch our local hurling matches as if he were at home. So with the kids and hubbie happy, I was able to relax by the pool and read a few books. We spent a day in Bordeaux (40 mins drive to Les Aubiers park & ride tram & total cost of €3.20 for all of us to travel into Bordeaux and back including parking the car!). We went tree climbing in an Indian Forest, karting in Royan. We had a 3 course meal in a local Michelin bib restaurant which cost €29.50pp. (Recommended by Venetia in her red book). This was easily the best value for money meal we have ever eaten. There were covered areas around the pool for those who did not like being out in the sun. The covered parking area kept the car cool and was really valued on those hot days when getting into the car would be like getting into a sauna. The downstairs bedrooms were surprisingly cool at night. The fans were on the go upstairs in the hot nights. We were so sorry to be going home.

“Gorgeous house, loads of character, shed loads of space, VERY tranquil location”

If you are looking to get away from it all this is it! it is set in pretty countryside and has lots of areas ro relax so you can get away from eachother if need be! A lovely big kitchen with everything in it. Big table both for inside and outside dining(located right by french doors to kitchen which was most conveniennt for dinner prep!!)...heated salt swimming pool wonderful, very well used especially as its right by the outdoor shaded dining table. My older yet active mum (who is not interested in sitting in sun or lying on a sun lounger) spent loads of time sitting and reading at the table and could still be part of everything going on by or in the pool with the younger generations. Nice big games room, lovely living room.....wifi was a tad slow and limited to certain areas but at least it was available. Very well equipped overall, great laundry room....shame we never used the bikes!
