“Great Gite with Family. V Child friendly.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Last week we rented Remy with another family and had a great time.

Remy is v spacious and so we did not get on top of one another and the kitchen fully equipped. It worked well with 2 families as the gite is long upstairs with bathrooms at either end and so you do not feel like you are 'sharing' too much.

The location is fantastic, we did lots of cycling through the vineyards and around villages near by which all ages loved and enjoyed the morning cycle for baguette etc.

The pool area is great, no stones for little ones to throw in, beautifully kept and totally safe but big enough for diving and playing and races! The games room was huge and really well done and fully of quality, well looked after toys and games for all ages and our 4 year old and husbands loved it. Likewise the TV room was also great at the end of the day for the 4 yr old for a bit of wind down.

We loved the accommodation, we had a great patio out the front and v safe for the children to play.
They even go to feed the fish which was fun. The utility room is amazing with 3 washing machines and 2 tumble driers and everything you need for just cleaning up messy kids clothes.

The only recommendation for improvement we made was for a further high chair (there is one).

There are some great restaurants to try within 20 mins away and we left reviews there.

Cognac was lovely and pretty un touristy which was great.

We enjoyed visiting Poms with children as v child friendly with a small but v interesting castle a the top of the hill in centre of town, lovely gardens, a park and a great café just by the castle which was v friendly with children (and us bringing their own food) and good value for money (pizza circa7 Euros).

you could easily go the sea and to St. Emillion and wider Bordeau for the day, but it was so lovely locally we stayed near by.

Jacky was most helpful.

My husband and I stayed for a week with Jacki and Neville in their lovely gite. The gite was clean and very comfortable and beautifully appointed. Our hosts went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely time. Would highly recommend this holiday.

We had a wonderful week at L'ancienne Distillerie with fantastic hosts Neville and Jacky on hand to ensure we had a great time. They are full of interesting information and advice on where to go and what to do.

Everything is top quality and very comfortable. The pool is great with plenty of sunbeds and floats, ideal for families.

Will be back again most definitely.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at l'Ancienne Distillerie, set in lovely surrounding countryside. The accommodation is clean, exceptionally well equipped and so spacious! Jacky the owner was very friendly and helpful, giving info on the area and what to do. The pool was wonderful - with plenty of beds and cushions. I would thoroughly recommend this gite and hope to retun again soon. In fact it is the best gite I have stayed in anywhere!

Room Tip: All the accommodation seemed a similar high standard (depends on number of beds from 2 to 8)

If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to stay. The gites continue to be of the highest quality, well equiped and very comfortable. Jacky and Neville are on hand should you require any help or advice, other than that they will leave you to enjoy your holiday.
There is plenty of space to relax in the pool area, along with BBQ areas and a well stocked games room.
We will be returning.

We enjoyed the relaxation and peace of L'Ancienne Distillerie.
Neville and Jacky cannot do enough to make your stay perfect as they really do care.
The gites are all of top quality and everything has been thought about to make them comfortable and user friendly.
The pool area is lovely and if it should rain there is plenty to do in and around the local area where all ages can enjoy themselves, and the seaside is only 40minutes away.
I would recommend this holiday venue and hope to return soon.

A relaxing haven amongst the vineyards and sunflower fields of the Cognac region. Jackie and Neville are the perfect friendly hosts, invisibly attentive to all your needs. The four gites are beautifully maintained and fully equipped. The extensive grounds are very well kept with lush plants, a fish pond, and two barbecue areas. Our children love the games room which has pool, table tennis, darts, table football and a small fitness area.

This is our fourth visit to the beautiful l'ancienne distillerie which says it all anyway. Next time we will go without the children for a romantic break out of season when the gites are great value, and the Eurostar return is super cheap.

Room Tip: You have a multiple choice of 1,2,3 or 4 bedroom gites
