Big disappointment when we discovered the room which is not the one shown on the website. We have been given a tiny studio with poor equipment. The owner did not see any issue with this wrong communication. It is a shame to market the only nice room of the place to attract tourists.
This is one of 6 units beside the owners house and very clean swimming pool. It is near the centre of Angoulins near the local shops where the locals are out early in the morning buying their bagettes, meat , veg and fish at the small market. It is near the coast and 2 beautiful beaches are within easy walking distance. The bus stop is opposite with buses every hour north and south The trains every 2 hours but are cheap and take only 5 minutes to get to La Rochelle. On arrival at the Airport at 1900 hours it would just have been possible to get to Angoulins by public transport but the owner picked us up from the Airport which was really helpfulaAnd they were helpful in seeing us in to their property.The unit is clean and the beds were comfortable.
We did not have a car and walked a lot but locals and tourists use bikes which one can hire at the local tourist office. The land is flat.
If you like eating out it might be a problem if you dont have a car as there is a loacl pizza cafe which is good but you have to travel to any other. You can eat cheaply at the large shopping centre 15 miutes walk from the villa and near the dual carriageway. There is a huge out of town shopping area which must serve La rochelle itself as Angoulins is a small quiet town.
This shopping centre is shut on a Sunday but the local shops are open on Sunday morning And the two butchers have amazing precooked food.
The one small minus here is that we arrived at 2200hrs and the villa had no toilet role or bottled water or small satchets of coffee which are found in a hotel or many rentals so bring your own small supplies.
The huge plus is the peace and quiet and it is utterly French.
