We stayed for 4 nights. We had the warmest of welcomes from Julia, Rob and Daisy. They made us feel so welcome and settled from the moment we arrived. The room was very spacious and bathroom was the same and all spotlessly clean. Coming down to fresh croissants and bread every morning with Julia's home made jam added to the... More

We had such a warm welcome from Julia when we finally found the gap in the hedge that led us into the enchanted garden. We'd actually driven by twice and not noticed. Gite du Calme is very comfortable and very well equipped. The weather was foul with flooding everywhere. When some electrics conked out because of the weather, Julia was... More

Wow what an amazing place. Gite du Calme is a beautiful house with an enormous garden, lovely pool and charming owners. Nestled in the vineyards it is quiet without being remote, in good reach of endless activities to suit every generation and hosted by a fabulous, welcoming family. The gite is very spacious with a huge kitchen and family bedroom.... More

We took a two week trip driving around France and Julia, Robert and Daisy's place was our first stop. We found it by chance on google and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. They're very friendly hosts and can really point you in the right direction for things to do in the area. Even gave a few personal... More

Julia, Robert and Daisy have a really nice place and their hospitality was terrific. We stayed here and at another great b&b in Duras while we were thinking about where we might live. The weather was decidedly unhelpful with the whole region getting a good soaking, but we still loved our stay at Gite du Calme. We had a good... More

We have been to the Gite Du Calme for the past 2 years and its so relaxing! You're surrounded by vineyards and fields which is just perfect for a mid afternoon walk or a short car ride into the local town of Saintes or a bit further into Cognac. Get to them on market day and the fresh local produce... More

Julie and Robert have got this one dead right. Whether you are seeking B&B (Chambres d'Houtes) or a Gite (Self Contained accommodation) Gite du Calme near Cognac is for you. Lovely, friendly hosts, superb presentation of the rooms/Gite; fabulous grounds; a swimming pool; wonderful breakfasts and great evening meals with plenty of wine!

We have just returned from a fantastic week away. As previous reviewers have mentioned the hosts Rob and Julia were truly welcoming and their 7 year old daughter kept our 4 year old son entertained for hours. The gite is incredibly spacious and beautifully furnished. There were plenty of toys for the kids and aside from the pool they loved... More

What a wonderful week we had at the Gite du Calme . Not only was the location quiet and beautiful but the hosts Robert and Julia made us old ones feel young again with their good company and excellent recommendations. They made us feel almost part of the family and nothing was too much trouble for them. You just had... More

What a brilliant holiday. The gite is in a beautiful location, with lovely gardens and pool. We opted for bed and breakfast, which worked really well, and the meals were excellent. Our hosts were very welcoming, and the evening meals spent together were very enjoyable. Our room was newly decorated, and very light and airy, and very tastefully decorated. Can't... More
