Proper rural France, charming French style accommodation and hosts that are on top of their game. Brigitte produced some wonderful food and Patrick is fun and a font of local knowledge. We must stay again during our travels down to South West France and Northern Spain.

The dinner we enjoyed on the first night was beautiful home cooking from Brigitte, accompanied by plenty of wine. There are several villages nearby that have good restaurants for the...

Eight of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here for 7 nights in September and although the weather could have been better, we were well placed for visits to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Rochefort, Marais Poitevin, Cognac to name but a few. The house was easy to locate (we did use satnav) even though it is in a very rural setting...

We thank you very much for your kindness and were very happy to meet and accommodate your joyful party and beautiful classic cars. Fortunately, the sun shone after so much rain at the beginning of your stay, and after some troubles the WIFI could connect to your devices. We are looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

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.
