“Lovely gite in good location”
Had a wonderful time in this beautifully clean and attractive gite located in the French countryside, but within easy reach of La Rochelle, Rochefort and local beaches. Our hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area, especially as we were househunting (the gite was a perfect base from which to look at various possibilities and explore this lovely area, and would be suitable for off-season searches). There is a local bar and shop as well as a locally well-known restaurant within walking distance in the nearby village.
