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.
