Thoroughly enjoyed our week's trip to La Rochelle, what a beautiful place!
The apartment was spotless and well equipped with everything we needed - and the pool was the star of the show for my 10 year old!
Had a wonderful stay at this small character property, conveniently located, on the outskirts of a beautiful town/ port, full of bustling restaurants, bars and craft stalls. Nice walk through the park to reach town or a bus on the door step. Local bakers and supermarkets and pizzeria, even a pizza delivery. The property itself I'd describe as small but beautifully formed, main bed was really comfy and plenty of towels and accessories. Storage was a little bit of an issue but we did travel with a car filled tho the brim? Pool was lovely and kids really enjoyed it after long days at the beach. A visit to l'il de re is a must with it's amazing beaches and surf and the apartment is located in easy reach of the main roads to take you there and along the coast. Our visit was made even more enjoyable by our host Lorraine and her beautiful children who entertained our twin girls , a friendship I hope will last.
Great apartment with everything needed for a great family holiday.Located close enough to walk into La Rochelle or to the shops and bakery. Regular bus service too. Lorraine and Jeremy are the perfect hosts. Pool lovely. Our stay was even more perfect due to incredible weather. Fantastic value that you could not find with a holiday let in the UK during School holidays. Highly recommended. We will be back.
Beautiful apartment, clean, tidy with everything we needed. So fantastic to have a pool too and just the right distance from the town with a short lovely walk into La Rochelle. And thanks to Lorraine and Jeremy, they made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough to make our stay the best!
Stayed at this lovely apartment for a few nights in June and had a wonderful experience! Gracious hosts who were clear and efficient communicators, answered all my questions and even left a bottle of wine to enjoy in the apartment at the beginning of the stay. Quick walk to the local bakery and grocery stores, great location in relation to downtown, short enough for a casual bike ride and there's a bus stop nearby - everything was just perfect. It was a particularly hot week and the access to a pool was absolutely gorgeous. Such a beautiful apartment with a kitchen stocked with tea and coffee and other amenities that reaffirmed my decision to stay here over staying in a hotel. I'll definitely be back in the future and recommend to anyone spending time in La Rochelle in the future!
We spent two weeks here and were sad to leave. The accommodation really suited our needs - two adults and three children - with a comfy double bed and sofa beds for the boys. It was great having a private swimming pool and we had a great time with the other guests. We were able to cook snacks but the weather was so glorious that we used the BBQ a lot as well as eating at the local pizzeria (and getting takeaway from there too) and restaurants in the centre. There is a large Leclerc supermarket a few minutes' walk away along with other shops and a large baker's that does delicious breakfasts and patisseries. It was no problem getting into the centre of La Rochelle, either a pleasant 20-minute walk through the park or a five minute reasonably priced and regular bus ride. The Tourist Information office were very helpful and there is lots to do in La Rochelle, including the three towers (with the impressive annual diving competition), the aquarium, the automaton museum, three cinemas, and of course the Ile de Ré which can be reached by bike, bus or boat. Our hosts, Lorraine and Jeremy, could not have done more to make this a holiday to remember. Thank you! We can't wait to go back!

Great apartment, close enough to town to walk. An extremely helpful guide in the apartment gave maps, restaurant advice etc. Lovely having the pool which was clean and well maintained, we used it everyday of our stay. Owners are very friendly and helpful, would highly recommend.
