We have just returned from the most idyllic two week break at The Domaine. On arriving the hosts David and Priscilla were warm and welcoming, they have recently taken over the Domaine and nothing was too much trouble throughout the holiday.
We stayed in the beautiful Les Thermes Gite and were so impressed, the space is amazing, everything you need as a family and overlooks the courtyard. Main living space with kitchen, 3 bedrooms, main bathroom, toilet and an on-suite shower.
I believe there are 15 Gites in total and guests were a mixture of English, French and Dutch. Our three children (13, 9 and 4) soon made friends and were in their element.
The pool was very clean and never busy, the little shop supplied very good French wine (according to my father who also came with us).
The buildings and style of the Gites are so beautifully French and the sun was out for most of the trip.
We spent day trips to Royan, La Rochelle, visited the beaches at Fouras and Chatellion Plage, as well as meals in Saintes and the closest town St Jean D'Angeley which is very pretty.
If you are driving down from Calais we stopped at Le Mans which is an ideal break.
We had many BBQ's and made some lovely friends, I really hope we can come back here.
