“Spacious cozy vacation house”
Reviewed July 29, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Our family spent great week in Le Chai July 2018. House is spacious, offers great outdoor and indoor activities for lots of fun. Plenty of opportunities for runs and bike trail tours and close proximity to shopping for every day needs. People in the vicinity are friendly and the small nearby restaurants offers daily menus at reasonable pricing

“Magnifique!!!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great relaxing holiday at a Le Chai, one of the best holidays all our family has had. Very spacious and comfortable, heated pool was fab and the pool table was well used too. Area is great for exploring but is very rural and quiet, shops and boulangerie close by too. Took advantage of the great weather and pool during the day and relaxed watching the great sunsets overlooking the huge garden at night with a glass of the local wine.

“Large, comfortable,quiet, fully equipped and relaxing house with wonderful pool.”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have been coming back to this area of France for 20 years now and I have to say that this is one of the loveliest and most comfortable rentals that we have had the pleasure to stay in.
The patio and pool area were spotless and well equipped with seating and loungers. The large garden is surrounded by countryside and you could easily park 4 cars if required. The pool was really warm and a great size. The weather was fantastic. 2 days rain in 21 days. The rainy days gave us the opportunity to improve our pool cue skills on the full size table and make use of the large DVDs collection. The Sky TV and Wifi was also an added bonus.
The pictures of the interior of the house truly do not do it justice. It is much larger than it looks and has been decorated and furnished to a lovely standard. We spent the day in Royan (40 mins) and had a brilliant day in Bordeaux. (50 mins). The only thing I could fault about the stay was the neighbours Jack Russel terrier that obviously didn't like the English. The other neighbours (Jean Claude and Cecile were lovely). Well done to the owners for creating a fantastic home from home in our favourite part of France.

“Perfect house for a perfect holiday”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have recently returned from spending two weeks at Le Chai. There were 10 of us, ranging in age from 20 months to 60 years and I can honestly say that every one of us had a fabulous time.
The house is deceptively large and the pool (which is heated) is amazing! Inside, there is a full sized pool table which proved to be a winner with my two young boys! The nearest village is about 1.2km away where you will find a bar that serves delicious food. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Le Chai and would recommend it for anyone!

Thank you for your review. So pleased you enjoyed your time at Le Chai and the swimming pool. The pool table is always a hit with the boys! We are also glad you had the energy to venture out for meals. Often we find lazing by the pool to be so exhausting!
