“Three delightful weeks!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Coming from the United States, my wife and I spent three delightful weeks in the Hollyhock cottage in April 2013. We were pleased with every aspect of our stay. The accommodations were as advertised and presented in the photos. Actually, the photos do not do it justice. The layout of the Hollyhock and Lavender cottages, the Loft, and the owners' home, is charming and allows for privacy. The pool is gorgeous and inviting and the separate hot-tub is a very nice feature. The grounds are lovely and make for a very tranquil stay.

The kitchen in the Hollyhock cottage is well equipped and very functional. My wife was looking forward to cooking in France and thouroughly enjoyed using the kitchen.

The layout of the two bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) was very practical and allowed for privacy when our adult niece joined us for a week. Both are loft bedrooms (one above the kitchen and one above the living room), but given the thickness of the walls and the massive chimney in the kitchen, they were both quiet and private. The cottage was exceedingly clean and bedding and towels were top quality.

Our hosts, Teresa and Allan, were responsive if we needed anything and eager to provide information about the area, but they were never intrusive and respected our privacy.

The location is in a rural setting a short distance from Chef Boutonne which has a nice restaurant, groceries, boulangerie, and a weekly market. Closer still is Melleran with a baker whose bread and pastries were simply wonderful. Moreover, his kind and welcoming personality is one of the fond memories of our trip.

The Hollyhock Cottage was a great location from which to explore the surrounding area. Despite its rural setting, we did not have any difficulty with internet connectivity as the owners installed a "booster" in the cottage itself.

We recommend this gite without any hesitation and cannot wait until our next visit.
