“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed December 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Excellent stay from start to finish in this magnificent property. Idyllic surroundings, lovely pool and nice weather to boot. John and Yvonne were very welcoming and were happy to advise us on our multitude of queries - they even posted some items back to the UK for us that we had left behind, which was extremely helpful.

The property itself is perfect; open plan living, large bedroom & bathroom and nice terrace areas.

Not much more to say as I would just be echoing the other positive reviews - would wholeheartedly recommend. Thanks again to John and Yvonne for their hospitality.

“Amazing ......”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I stayed for the first week in September 2014. The directions to the accommodation provided by the owner were impeccable, they allowed us to find the location without any difficulty and set the tone for our stay.

The owners greeted us and gave a tour explaining the workings of all the appliances and facilities along with the grounds and pool area. They also provided a generous “welcome pack” which was a great start to a self-catering holiday!

The accommodation was absolutely first class and extremely comfortable and everything was of a particularly high specification providing all that is necessary for a perfect stay in comfortable surroundings.

The owners were utterly charming and possessed the local knowledge needed for their guests to make the most of their time and indeed we DO NOT have a single negative comment.

With regard to the area, the local supermarket in Segonzac (a 5 minute drive away) stocked all that is required and towns such as Jarnac, Jonzac, Cognac and Angouleme provided well priced restaurants for lunch and dinner.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have absolutely no hesitation to recommend it to others.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A lovely cottage, very well equipped and surrounded by lovely rolling vineyard countryside . The owners are very friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week and had very warm weather which encouraged us to relax, explore locally, enjoy the local pineau drink and laze by the pool. Fabulous.
Locally the towns of Cognac (we did the Martell tour which was very good) and Saintes (don't miss the Roman amphitheatre) were attractive and interesting to visit. The coast at Talmont and Meshers are about one hour away and fascinating to explore. The harbour side restaurant "Caravelle" served a good seafood menu.

“A perfect place to do nothing yet there is so much to do”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at Le Cerisier and wish we could have stayed longer. The gite is as seen in the photographs and the owners, John and Yvonne, were warm amd welcoming, full of helpful advise but gave us the space to enjoy their wonderful place uninterupted.
The gite is very well equipped with everything that you could need. The sheets were very good quality and the towels super soft ( the most important things to me wherever we travel). I loved floating round the pool (on the provided inflatables), dozing in the secret garden and sitting on the little verandah until late at night drinking the local rose wine. My husband loved the fact that he could catch up with the Commonwealth Games and Open Golf on TV!
We went to several excellent, free musical events in the area and there were many interesting places to visit - you do need a car.
If you want to slow down and relax this place is perfect.

“Perfect relaxing holiday in”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Le Cerisier in June 2014 and were very impressed with the Gite.The English owners, John and Yvonne,live in the house in the grounds,they were extremely welcoming and very helpful, happily sharing their knowledge of the local area but not intruding on our holiday.
The Gite is very well furnished with everything you would need for a great holiday. The pool was fantastic, the gardens are beautiful and the private courtyard garden with it's sun loungers and bbq was a lovely private area to sit and read and enjoy the sun.
The gite is amazingly well set up, with everything you might need at your disposal. The welcome hamper included red wine, white wine as well as milk , bread,fruit, orange juice - everything you need on arrival! The bathroom (with shower) is beautifully furnished, the bed was really comfortable (very important as I am 6'5!). You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner outside the gite on the private veranda, overlooking the cognac vines.
Yvonne & John couldn't have made us more welcome. I'd thoroughly recommend this place to anyone.
We liked it so much that we have booked to return in September 2014!

“Well equipped, tranquil amongst the Cognac vines”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We are frequent self catering visitors and this stone built gite, yet with a modern interior, was by far the best we have stayed in in the Cognac/Charente area. Beautifully clean and equipped with everything you would need. Yvonne and John (the owners) were very helpful and friendly. The Welcome pack of food and wine was very well received. The facilities - pool area, private garden, balcony and barbecue were all we could have wished for . A car is necessary to experience the best the area can offer. Nearby Segonzac village useful for bread and Intermarche s/market.

“Ticked every box. Wonderful.”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely skilfully converted barn gite set within a private walled garden overlooking a vinyard.The owners John and Yvonne are lovely warm hosts whose own property is adjacent to the gite. We booked the gite as it was located perfectly for house hunting in the Cognac/ Charente area. The gite has a wonderful secure pool and sun lounging area and additionally enjoys its own separate enclosed private decked garden area which is a wonderful sun trap. The main open plan living area is spacious yet cosy and has a very well equipped kitchen, whilst the downstairs good sized double bedroom and shower room are modern , light and airy. Free easy access wifi was very welcome. We loved our short stay here and would not hesitate to come back. John and Yvonne are lovely unobtrusive hosts who will happily share their knowledge of the local restaurants and area. You will not be disappointed.
