“Beautiful, relaxing and very well suited for small children”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2016

We stayed at le Cerisier in july with our two girls of 5 and 2 years old. The gite was comfortable and cosy and very well finished.. For the children everything had been thought of, special chairs, a cot, fences for the stairs, cutlery, a large collection of toys, a changing mat,... They could play on the very big lawn without a care, as the pool and playground are fenced. Outside we had a lot of possible activities but the beautiful pool is hard to resist. Most of the time we had it all to ourselves.The children especially enjoyed the playground and trampoline and the smallest was absolutely in love with the little red toycar. In the evening it was just lovely to relax on the terrace with a drink and look at the beautiful environment. Our hosts were friendly, helpfull and hospitable. Weghad a very nice time at le cerisier!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your very positive Review of your stay at Le Tilleul and we are very pleased that you had an enjoyable and relaxing time here. We hope to see you again before too long!

“Outstanding Gite - Best Holiday Ever!”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2015

As soon as we arrived, Les and Sara made us feel so welcome. We have stayed in numerous gites over the past 15 years but this was the most luxurious, spotless gite we have been in. The welcome basket was delightful. The gite has everything you need for a perfect holiday. Beautifully furnished, spacious and clean. As for the amazing huge pool, gym, boule, darts, table football, volleyball, football, table tennis plus a lovely play area, you will never hear your children say that they are bored. Les and Sara have thought of everything, even a large fridge/freezer near to the pool area. When we suggested each day to our teenage daughters that we could visit a market, go canoeing or go karting nearby they both said they would prefer to stay at the gite and enjoy the activities there. If you are looking for a relaxing peaceful setting, with beautiful views, in a fabulous gite then this has to be your top choice. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Les and Sara for the best holiday we have had. We hope to return again soon.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your fantastic Review of your stay at Le Tilleul. We try to provide everything our guests could possibly want or need to ensure they have a truly relaxing and enjoyable stay and we are thrilled that you appreciated what we have on offer here! Of course, it would be a pleasure to welcome you all back to Le Tilleul any time!

“Perfect Holiday at Le Cerisier”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2015

My husband and I with our two daughters, aged 16 and 18, have just returned from a wonderful stay at Le Cerisier. Having seen the website photos we knew the gite had been finished to a high standard but the reality exceeded our expectations. Everything has been planned to provide a five star experience, from the luxurious bathrooms, the comfortable beds and sofas, excellent wifi and the wonderful electric awning on our patio to Sara’s thoughtful welcome pack, complete with eggs from her own chickens. Outside the gite itself the same high standards continue. The pool is enormous and spotless. We often had it all to ourselves. The area around it well equipped with sun lounges and awnings. The summer terrace, with its hammock, fridge freezer and dining table was a welcome shady spot when the temperatures were high, which they were for all of our stay! The garden, which takes up several acres, is a joy. It has an enormous cedar tree, complete with two resident owls, beds of lavender, which smell delightful in the evening and it slopes down to a field of waving corn and poppies. Les and Sara are the perfect hosts. They are friendly and good humoured and happy to suggest outings and restaurants if you wish but quietly discreet if you do not. However what we loved the most and which no photo can capture is the atmosphere at Le Cerisier. The peace and tranquillity creeps up on you so that after a few days you would happily stay there forever. Unfortunately we only had a week in this lovely spot but we certainly hope to return.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a hugely complimentary Review of your stay at Le Tilleul. We make every effort to provide the ingredients for our guests to have a fantastic holiday and it's very gratifying when it is confirmed by Reviews such as yours that we have succeeded in doing so! It was a pleasure to have you and your family to stay and we look forward to welcoming you all to Le Tilleul again before too long!

“When can we return?”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

What a wonderful place to stay! Beautifully and sympathetically restored property with quality furniture and fittings in an absolutely lovely location; owned and run by a lovely family who can't do enough to please. I am unable to drive, due to failing eyesight, and as a special treat, to allow my husband to have a drink with a meal for a change Les offered to act as our chauffeur for the night. Sara gave us a couple of Auberge to choose from, printed off the menus, and made the booking. They have balance just right, there for you but never obtrusive in any way. We were provided with cherries ( Les Cerisier) from their own trees and eggs from the, very entertaining, chickens!! From the minute we arrived to a warm welcome and a very generous welcome pack, including Georgia's lovely home made cake, until we left, we felt like valued visitors. Good wifi, English channels, copious amounts of hot water, good showers. Adam, our 15 yr old, loved having the gym for his daily workout, we were blessed with glorious weather and, so, made good use of all the games eg boules, croquet, badminton, table tennis but for me the pool was the piece de resistance and was used every day. It is a good size, in a lovely spot, surrounded by countryside and birdsong with sunbeds enough for all. Brantome is a must for a visit with beautiful buildings and many very reasonable restaurants for a kir, wine or a nice cold beer and a meal overlooking the river. Nearby, the velo-rail was entertaining but choose the shorter route, we cycled from Confolens to Manot. The local market at Piegut- Pluviers was great fun with loads of local produce and wines rather than the usual market tat. If we hadn't already booked our holiday for this summer we would have tried to book again. You get what you pay for and we would recommend to our family and friends without hesitation.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive and complimentary Review of your stay at Le Tilleul. We treat our guests as we would like to be treated and we're thrilled that you had such an enjoyable stay in Le Cerisier. We look forward to welcoming you back to Le Tilleul before too long!

Lovely Gite well appointed and with excellent facilities. If you feel like doing nothing but lazing around by the pool, playing boules, tables tennis and volleyball, walking in the woods it's perfect. If you want an action holiday there is plenty to do : cycling, kayaking,horse riding etc. We stayed in the smaller of the two Gites and really enjoyed our stay, made all the better by meeting our hosts the Henderson's. I would definitely recommend that you give it a go.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive Review of your stay and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in Le Cerisier. As you say, there are lots of activities close at hand for the more energetic visitor but equally, more than enough to do on-site for the slightly less active guest and we are pleased that you were able to enjoy a mixture of both, assisted by some glorious early September weather! It was a joy having you and your family to stay and we hope you will visit us again in the future!

“Believe the reviews! It's a top quality gite in beautiful, rural surroundings. First class.”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

We spent two weeks in Le Cerisier in August with our two sons aged 9 and 6. The gite was great - all home comforts laid on - and the setting and location are wonderful. The boys had a great time swimming (v large heated pool) and enjoying the grounds and games provided. There's lots to see and do in the area; we swam and sailed in/on the local lake, spent half a day canoeing down the Tardoire and visited local towns and markets. Les and Sara are excellent unobtrusive hosts, and the little touches like fresh eggs from their hens and potatoes from the veg patch were much appreciated. If you're browsing the web for a gite in this part of the world, look no further!

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a Review on your stay in Le Cerisier this summer and thank you also for your kind comments! We look forward to welcoming you back to Le Tilleul again before too long!

“Beautiful gite in lovely surroundings”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2014

We spent a week at Le Cerisier with our two daughters aged 10 and 8. Les and Sara were welcoming hosts with lots of valuable advice and ideas on trips in the local area. The accommodation was both beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you might need or want. The setting was glorious (with a view over fields of sunflowers) and peaceful. We enjoyed the use of the swimming pool, table tennis table, petanque and badminton/volleyball courts. The grounds were safe for our children to run around in and they loved the trampoline and meeting the 5 chickens who wander freely. Le Tilleul is ideally situated for exploring this lovely part of France, including chateaux, lakes, ancient towns and open countryside. There are many activities nearby for all tastes. We particularly enjoyed the Aventure Parc (treetop high wires with a thrilling zip-wire across a lake) and kayaking around Brantome.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your positive Review of your stay at Le Tilleul. It was an absolute pleasure to have you here and we're thrilled that you had such an enjoyable holiday. Please come back and see us again before too long!

“Friendly, fun, home from home, relaxing..................”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2014

Travelling with family and friends, we had many tastes and requirements to try and satisfy, everyone was happy! The Gite was lovely,clean, comfortable and tranquil. The grounds were great for five children ranging from 14 - 7 years, and the activities provided kept them all entertained, darts, table tennis and of course the pool, even the gym was used. Very lazy time we didn't travel more than half an hour to any attraction but found plenty to do, and many more things we would have liked time to do. The high ropes course was a hit, cycling round the lakes and the market, all had positive votes. Les and Sara and their children and friends made us most welcome and a week to look back on with fond memories. thank you!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your very positive Review! It really was our pleasure to have you and your extended party stay at Le Tilleul and we hope you will return before too long!

“Quality Gite, quality facilities, quality support”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

Le Cerisier set in peaceful, relaxing surroundings. We slept better than at home. The Gite was beautiful inside and out, with quality rooms and furniture to make dining in or out a pleasure. There was even an electrical operated awning so we could dine out when it rained. The weather was temperamental for the week, but there was always something to do. The pool was fantastic, only problem being the weather made it a bit cool and there was no pool heating. The undercover pool terrace was a very pleasant place to relax, drink and enjoy the view. The owners Les & Sara, who live on site were very welcoming, supportive and available as necessary for assitance. Overall a wonderful holiday.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to write such a complimentary Review of your stay at Le Cerisier. Unfortunately, the weather was somewhat changeable during your stay and, being so early in the season and having had a pretty nondescript Spring, in terms of the lack of normal Spring sunshine, the pool was not as pleasantly warm as it normally is at this time of year. As I mentioned, we are fitting pool heating for next year and it was somewhat ironic that the heat pump was delivered yesterday, just as the pool temperature reached 26C due to the recent spell of really hot and sunny weather! C'est la vie! We really enjoyed having you and your family to stay at Le Tilleul and we hope to see you again sometime soon.

“Wonderful location, very high quality accommodation and excellent hosts”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2012

A very high standard of Gite, with all mod cons and many added extras. Conveniently located to the airport, with plenty to do in the nearby area. With many additional facilities, this is an ideal location for a quiet break or site seeing visit to the Charente. Les and Sara are brilliant hosts, with good knowledge of the local area.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your very flattering Review. We try and provide everything our guests could possibly need or want for a truly relaxing holiday and we're thrilled that you seem to have found exactly what you wanted here! We very much look forward to seeing you and your family again in the not too distant future.
