House is really French, large bedrooms in old French style, with large comfortable beds and lovely furniture . Food was excellent and it felt like a big... More

We returned yesterday from a lovely week in France of which we spent two nights at this wonderful B&B. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed as friends - even by the dog 'Excel'! The charming host and hostess, Patrick and Brigitte plainly enjoy their work and do their very utmost to satisfy their guests' needs. As we did,... More

This is either the fourth or fifth time we have stayed here and it is still so very good. Brigitte and Patrick are excellent hosts and they have a great sense of humour. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The evening meals are very tasty, preceded by a nice glass of Pineau de Charente,... More

Having just returned from three lovely days at Le Clos de la Garenne, our THIRD VISIT to the best alround gite we have stayed at, we were very sad to read the insulting report from 'The Donkey' - at least he got that right. M and Madame Francois are brilliant hosts who make all their guests feel fully relaxed and... More

From booking in two months ahead to leaving after a very amusing and enjoyable nights stay including dining and breakfast, we have been extremely impressed by Brigitte & Patrick's friendly and professionally run house. If ever we are in the La Rochelle region again we will hope to book in again. We will recommend them to our friends.

This was our second stay at this B&B, and we heartily recommend it! We stayed in the same room we'd had 4 years ago. It was beautifully furnished, comfortable, and private. This time, we were able to arrange to have dinner there both nights of our stay, another thing that we highly recommend. We had a wonderful four course meal... More

Sorry for being so late answering you. Just a few words to say how nice it was to have you again home, twice longer than first time. In French, we say "never 2 without 3" so we look forward to meeting you for the third time in the future. Many thanks Brigitte & Patrick More

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The B&B which was their home was very comfortable and had free Wi Fi. The room was spacious and plenty of room to hang clothes. There was a lounge to relax in and an interesting collection of scales. Breakfast was great and set us up for the day.

We stayed August 2012 just for a couple of nights but we loved it and intend to return at some point. The hosts were charming and we were only sorry we didn't get to try the food as we suspect it would have been delightful!!! Not a huge amount to do in the area but we had bikes so exploring... More

We spent 3 nights with Brigitte and Patrick in late August. Our suite of two generous sized rooms together with our own bathroom suited us very well, and in addition to a number of toys, the girls were able to play in the lovely garden.

We found that Le Clos de la Garenne Chambres d’hôtes (B&B) at Puyravault was an ideal spot for a true experience of French hospitality. We stayed for only one night in May 2012 as part of a two month visit to France. We wished we had stayed longer. Brigitte and Patrick Francois are very welcoming and generous hosts. From the...
