“A beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Had an amazing holiday in this lovely gite. The owners, who live close by, were really helpful, giving tips and ideas on places to visit, though they were not intrusive.
The gite was an outstanding property with plenty of room and quiet corners to sit and have a read. The property is well maintained and spotlessly clean.
The outside sitting and dining area is comfortable and as the weather was hot and sunny it was well utilised, as was the above ground pool.
Would we return to this gite, yes, we most certainly would.

“The perfect holiday”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our group (4 adults, 3 toddlers and a baby) spent two brilliant weeks in The Old Farmhouse. The property itself it excellently equipped with everything you require and is furnished to a very high standard throughout. Sue and Andy were the perfect hosts - nice wines on arrival were a great touch - and were available if required to provide advise. The Deux Sevres are has a great deal to commend it. It falls between the more popular - and far more touristy Loire and Bordeaux wine regions and as a result offers everything that La France Profounde is famous for. The slower pace of life, the sunshine is all at hand without having to hear/see British tourists around every corner. With the kids I'd definitely recommend Vallee Des Singes and Zoodyssey as well as the Lac de Lambon.

All in all 2 weeks of very happy memories. Leaving The Old Farmhouse was a real wrench!

“Perfect Relaxing Holiday in Fantastic Accommodation.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week, travelling as 2 couples.
The farmhouse is a stunning property immaculately maintained and presented by the owners, Sue, Andy and Olive, who struck the perfect balance of friendliness and also leaving us to relax and enjoy a peacful break. We enjoyed a drink with them on a couple of occaisions!
The farmhouse is incredibly well equipped, even down to free WiFi, and it is impossible to find fault.
We were travelling without children, but certainly for adults plenty to do nearby, but the house is in a rural area, so you will have to drive.
Would recommend a boat trip around the waterways of Venise Vert and a vsist to one of the famous name Cognac houses in the Cognac area, about an hour away.
Overall a perfect week, we do hope to return!

Sue and her partner were the best hosts there could be! Our holiday home was more like our own castle than a holiday home! We happened to stay during the hottest week in France and the swimming pool was perfect for cooling down. Not a huge swimming pool but big enough to teach someone to swim in!
There are plenty of things to do not far from the site. One place worth checking out is La Vallee des singes, 'Monkey Sanctuary'!!
There is a supermarket very near by, it has everything you need to enjoy the French cuisine.
The hosts were very accommodating and friendly, we all had a laugh and enjoyed a few drinks together. All in all a wonderful, relaxing, HOT! week in France, would go again if had the chance!
