“An amazing, relaxing, wonderful holiday!”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed here a for a week in the summer a couple of years ago, with our two small children, my sister, brother in law and baby, and my sister's in laws. It was a large group, but such an amazing amount of space that nobody got under each other's feet!
The kitchen is brilliantly kitted out and has everything you could possibly need, and if not, all you need to do is ask Abby and Jerry and they'd get it for you.
The dining room is huge, so you could all eat in there if the weather wasn't playing nice. We ate outside most of the time, and chilled with wine and bbq in the warm summer evenings.
(a note for parents, the baby monitor will reach outside up to the swimming pool!)
The rooms are well set out, clean, and spacious. There is a room that we made the kids room attached to a double room, which is excellent for a family with small kids.
The pool is really child friendly, with a little paddling area for the little ones, and it is protected by a child proof gate so they can't just wander in unsupervised. Sunloungers, pool toys and floats were also available.
Just beyond that is a large garden with swings and slide, and a small sandpit. Also a very large trampoline which the kids loved. My youngest fell asleep in the hammock in the corner of the garden as he was so relaxed.
Beyond the garden is a meadow, which is beautiful to walk in or cycle, or in my husband's case, fly his RC Airplane....
Outside the front of the house is a large covered area which has a ping pong table and other children's toys, a life saver for a rainy day!!
They also have a huge selection of bikes!
I look back on this holiday with such fond memories, and would absolutely love to go back there. In fact, we fully intend to!!
As to the local area, there is loads to do - beach about 1hr and La Rochelle is also easy to get to. When the weather was nice, we just ended up relaxing in the pool and the garden!
Abby and Jerry are great hosts and couldn't do more for you, I would thoroughly recommend this as somewhere to stay to anyone.
