Great service run by English people. They will deliver and collect bikes from the property.
Spacious excellent accommodation in a fabulous location. Lovely calming and quiet place. Brilliant accessibility. Great WiFi, selection of books and DVD’s. Lovely large garden to play in and large heated pool.
House was very clean, the bed sheets and towels had a lovely fragrance. Comfy beds. Very well equipped, everything you need. On the edge of the village, so has a rural feel. About a 20 minute walk round trip to the baker, butcher and really well stocked coop. The port/marina is a beautiful place to visit with seafood, bars and restaurants.
We went to Jonzac market on Tuesday morning, 30 minute drive. It was undercover with delicious produce. We sat and drank coffee whilst listening to some fantastic buskers.
Thoroughly lovely, relaxing and enjoyable family holiday.
Owner Lynn was always very prompt in replying to emails - all within 12 hours. So very accommodating and always keen to help special requests. Thank you Lynn.
