Jason, Charlotte, Isaac and Rufus, Hartford - June 2012

‘Quite possibly the best, well equipped and beautifully furnished gite we have ever stayed in - and the pool and gardens were fantastic. Sue and Simon were great hosts - even helping us with a trip to the Doctor with our poorly 2 year old; as well as excellent beach and restaurant recommendations.

Katy, Neil, Finn and Conor, Birmingham - June 2012

‘Another ( this is our 5th year here!) wonderful holiday. The weather, pool, food and trips have all been great - but spending time with Sue, Simon, Lucy and Harry has made it that little bit more special.

Jo, Kees, Luc and Oliver, The Hague - July 2012

‘A very comfortable, beautifully furnished and well equipped gite - perfect for our holiday with 2 toddlers! Thank you for the very welcome bottle of fizz and your warm welcome too. We have really enjoyed this part of France as well as making the most of the gite, garden and pool. We’ll miss waking up to the peacful, beautiful surroundings and our daily croissants and baguettes!

‘Thank you Sue, Simon, Lucy and Harry for helping make this a very happy family holiday. The gite was perfect for Annabel ( 5) and Jake (2) to have a truly happy and safe time playing in the garden and pool. We enjoyed some lovely trips out by the sea and at La Rochelle knowing that when we returned to the gite everyone would still be happy to relax and have fun in the lovely surroundings’
