9.1 / 10 Richard, UK 11 September, 2016

We had a wonderful 2 weeks here with our 2 young daughters. The swimming pool was ideal for the children and there is a table tennis table, BBQ area and good sized garden too. There is a nice aspect to the gite in the morning and a spectacular night sky also. There is plenty to offer locally with nice parks and lake to swim in near Matha and also at Cognac. It is well worth making the trip to the Atlantic coast with near perfect beaches for an active young family. Overall we would thoroughly recommend the gite for a family holiday,
