We've just returned from a wonderful holiday at Les Lezards. We cannot fault anything. from our arrival Barbara welcomed us and showed us the gite and was continually available to assist should we have needed help. Les Lezards is very child friendly and the heated pool was a huge hit with our children.
The gites are located in close proximity to the town of Aulnay which has a decent-sized supermarket to cater for most requirements, along with the local market which was open on Sunday and Thursday mornings. Royan and La Rochelle are only 40-50 mins away.
I'd thoroughly recommend Les Lezards as a family friendly location. We had an excellent stay.

Fantastic base for travelling around the Charente-Maritime area of France, there are so many things to see in this area!
We have a 4 and 7 yr old and we struggled to fit all the activities into one week.
Worth visiting:-
Market in Aulnay on a Sunday morning with amazing fresh food to purchase.
Great restaurant for children to eat at with lovely fish!
Beautiful chateau
Great restaurant for lunch
donkey sanctuary
Lovely day trips to
il de Re

The pool at Le Petit Lezard was fantastic, the garden great for children with swings and play equipment, gite was very clean, and very relaxing.
Thank you for a great stay.
