“Another great Holiday”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

17 bikers, with Harley Davidson's have just had their 2nd holiday in La Maison du Ble, the accommodation has been renovated into one big space which is truly amazing. The weather was not as good as last time, but Jon & Julia did everything possible to help us and sort us out with extra beer and wine for when we arrived. We will definitely be back again.

Thank you very much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you back and we were particularly interested in your response since you are the first group that has stayed at Les Chardonnerets / La Maison in both it's earlier incarnation as two gites and now as single large property. Your positive feedback and suggestions were very much appreciated and we look forward to (hopefully) seeing you back here again in the future.

Just returned from a week at La Chardonnerets and had a fantastic time.
The gite is wonderful: spacious, well maintained and has everything you could need. We travelled with two toddlers and one baby and they thoroughly enjoyed their time. John and Julia have a gorgeous accommodation here and offered meals and support with anything if required. Amazing place and we will definitely be returning.

We have just returned from a week @ Les Allouettes, Le Langon, France which is about a 50 minute drive from La Rochelle itself - the hospitality offered by Julia and Jon was fantastic. Party of 4 adults and 2 kids (7 and 11) who had a ball; entertained by the array of pets, swimming pool and outdoor facilities! The gite was perfect for relaxing in, with home from home comforts, and this is the first time we have shared accommodation with friends, but given the separate wings, privacy was not an issue and worked well! If you want a really relaxing holiday this is perfect but you are quite remote with very little going on in Le Langon itself but Fonteney-le-Comte is only about a 10 minute drive away which is bustling!

We recently stayed with Vendee Vacances and had a wonderful holiday. The gite was lovely and the pool gorgeous. The whole thing was very easy with our children and Jon and Julia did so much to make sure we had a great time. We'll definitely be back.

One week in the gites with other families. Large open space for the children to play in and a great pool for them to attempt to drown themselves in. Evenings we're quiet as the little ones were shattered from all the play. Mouzeuile is quiet to the point of near extinction but Julia's food was great and the local wine good. :-) John was fast to act on the only issue we had and we were demanding as a group, having children from <1 to 10 years old. Julia & John were hospitable and very welcoming. $64000 question, would we go back with the family? Yes! Says it all really. Recommended

We have just returned from an amazing two week stay at Les Alouettes. As two families (kids aged 2.3.4 and 8) the layout was ideal as it gave us two bedrooms and a bathroom each and a central kitchen and lounge. The location is wonderful, set in countryside with sunflower fields and hay bales, yet it is near to many attractions and towns. Julia and Jon were extremely welcoming and provided everything we needed and were always able to offer advice and suggestions. The pool, play area, trampoline, garden and animals make the Gite perfect for kids and my eldest son cried when we left as he had so much fun! Highly recommended for all!

Had a fantastic time staying in Les Alouettes for a week in August 2011. We were two Families = 4 adults, 4 children (6,5,4,3) and two infants and this worked really well. The property has a very big kitchen/dining area and above this is a mezzanine. The property has a wing each side of the kitchen with two bedrooms and a bathroom, so as they say on the website "great for two families". The best part for the children and the dad's was the swimming pool, the pool has three depth stages to it, at guess 3ft,4ft and the about 7ft so great for all. This property is in a great part of France, nice country lanes for cycling and only about an hour to some fantastic beaches. Would I recommend this Gite..YES. John and Julia do a great job looking after thier properties and thier guest's...Its a thumbs up from us!
