“A Piece of Sanity in the Cognac Region”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2008

Having our first holiday abroad with a baby we were apprehensive about our ability to have a real break. We needn't have worried, Gite Du Calme was beautiful and the photos you see on this website do not do it enough justice. The place is condusive to relaxing and 'taking out the batteries'.

The place is actually available as either a B&B or 3 bedroomed gite and is conveniently situated near the Cognac region. The place has an amazing farmhouse kitchen and is it fully furnished with mod cons such as the internet, TV and a DVD player for when you want to have a rest from being in the swimming pool (weather permitting). It was also furnished with fantastic baby equipment so there was no need to bring anything with us. The owners, Julia and Rob made us feel extremely welcome and their knowledge of the region was really helpful when deciding on daytrips.

Would also recommend Julia's scrumptious cooking!

  • Liked — The owners, Julia & Rob and the design of the gite
