“Simply perfect accommodation and location”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The accommodation was exactly as described and the number and quality of bathroom facilities was especially helpful for a larger group with young children.
The additional facilities of table-tennis, snooker table, table football, badminton, and swimming pool, together with a large selection of bikes, provided ample distraction for everyone and the extensive grounds (fields in which to wander, trees under which to sit, pond and lake complete with wildlife) offered play space and resting space for all.
We, our extended family, and our friends enjoyed our stay immensely, will hope to come again, and would unreservedly recommend this holiday home to others.
The owners are on hand to give advice about trips out, are immensely welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble for them.

“An amazing place to stay”

We stayed at La Chene for one week in July 2014 and could not have have been more welcomed by Paul and his wife. It was the 1st week of a lovely holiday and we were a party of 3 adults and 2 children all in need of total relaxation. the cycling(bikes provided) was brilliant, the fishing (in the pond) was fund and the local hospitality amazing. we would thoroughly recommend staying at this property and had it not have already been booked would have done so this year.

“Fantastic family holiday!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We returned to La Charriere again this summer - our fourth visit - for another fantastic holiday. We stayed in the bigger gite with my brother and sister-in-law and kids. The gite is very spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Lots of bathrooms are very helpful with lots of little children! The seating terrace and BBQ area, which overlooks fields at the rear of the house is so peaceful. We have lovely memories of watching the sun go down with a glass of wine! The swimming pool area is very well maintained and a good size with two boxes full of bits and bobs for the children to play with in the water. We all enjoyed the play barn. Great toys for the children and sporting equipment for the adults. We really did mean to play badminton but kept finding ourselves back on that terrace with the wine... We loved using the bike (huge range to choose from) and the roads are so quiet that we could go on long rides with even our beginner, wobbly rider. We love the location. It is very peaceful and you really feel away from it all. Good shop in village. Nearby town has bigger supermarket and everything else you might need. We loved a day trip to Parc de la Vallee for the children - very reasonable, great rides including loads for tiny ones and hardly any queues. Also like the local swimming pool with slides and the lake. This year we tried canoeing on the river which was a great success. Paul and Charlotte are wonderful hosts and always on hand to help out with bike problems, cuddle wailing infants, organise canoe trips, offer advice on local wine selection and pop in with delicious fresh veg from their garden etc etc!! We've booked again for next year. Perfect family holiday.

“Fabulous Gite in great location with lots of extras”
Reviewed August 3, 2011 for a stay in July 2011
1
person found this review helpful

Our holiday was for the extended family that had a whole range of ages, likes and interests. The Gite is well placed in the open country side but close enough to get to the shops and petrol station (15 mins).
We stayed in La Chene and it comfortable held all 10 of us - 7 adults, 2 older children and a young child. The pictures on the website doesn't do the gite justice as it is much bigger than I or the rest of the family expected. The facilities within the gite are second to none. There are 4 large bathrooms to go with the 5 bedrooms, a huge kitchen/diner and an equally large living room with the English satellite TV ( a huge winner!). There is also a washing machine which with a little one is a must.
The added extras which the whole family took pleasure in using was the swimming pool and barn conversion into mini sports hall. These got used every day with the different options of badminton, volleyball, basketball, pool, table tennis and table soccer. Due to our weather and lack of time, we weren't able to take up the chance of a family bike ride but there were plenty of bikes for all to chose from.
Paul and Charlotte were more than happy to help with anything that we needed. They arranged a visit to a local winery, and even took us so that we could partake in the wine tasting! They have a huge selection of DVD's that can be borrowed too.
There is a second gite at this location and while we were there, there was a second family holidaying. Due to the space available, there was never an occasion where it felt crowded, nor was there a concern that we would not be able to use the facilities so thoughtfully provided by Paul and Charlotte.

Overall, our holiday was a huge success and would highly recommend a visit to Paul and Charlotte's gites.
