Perfect family holiday retreat
We are a family of five with three girls aged 13, 11 and 9. As parents all we wanted was total R&R in the sun and the girls wanted to swim and eat Moules et frites, have space to run about and also do their own thing! It's hard to get that balance. Not at Gendaine. It ticks every box.
It's a beautiful villa, perfect size for us, the rooms are spacious and light and have everything you could possibly need. We cooked every night and found the kitchen very well equipped with all the necessary gadgets. We then ate outside on the veranda, all but two night and would sit out until late playing games.
The setting is stunning, the pool is fantastic, with an alarm and lockable gate for peace of mind and spacious sunbathing area. It also has a large grassed area where we played badminton most nights, there was pick up sticks, boules, giant dominoes, table tennis and lots of games. The girls loved the hammock as it was a little sanctuary for them.
The weather was beautifully hot (highest was 34 degrees in the shade) with a breeze on most days - perfect.
We had a perfect holiday and we recommend you look no further. We ventured out only a handful of times for a couple of lunches, sightseeing, a market, to shop and there is lots to close by but we were actually surprised how contented we were to just stay put and enjoy what Gendaine had to offer.
Thank you David, Jane and Emma for a wonderful, most memorable holiday, we hope to be back.
Thank you so much for your review and we are all delighted that you enjoyed your holiday. We would be pleased to have you back anytime.

Perfect 2 weeks!
Gendaine seemed to be ideal for our holiday requirements, based on our web-based research. When we got there, the updating really made it - great outdoor living area and an amazing shower. We really capitalised on being able to do virtually everything outside in the great weather. There was bread, cheese and wine left as a welcome for us - a nice touch.
We were ideally located between Chalais (great tapas at La Bodega) and Riberac for shopping and Aubeterre for evening meals, canoeing and other attractions. Also Le Grand Etang de La Jemaye was easily accessible for the beach, walks and canoeing. Saint Auylaye was also well worth a visit with a amazing crepes at La Muscadiere, river beach, high ropes and water slides. For older kids (8 yrs upwards) there was high ropes at Base De Loisirs De Poltrot, plus many other things to do there. Bonnes was a few km away with a terrific boulangerie and patisserie and an amazing pizzeria, loved by all.
The pool is where much of our time was spent as temperatures were around 30C in the shade, though not overpoweringly hot with a lovely breeze. An ideal size and great for swimming. Being a saltwater pool, it was kinder on the skin and eyes and left no chlorine smell. Plenty of shade provided with big parasols and plenty of comfortable sunbeds.
The accommodation was well appointed and really a home-from-home, with everything you could possible need. The bedrooms were light and airy with lovely beds and linen plus nice towels provided. The only slight improvement that could be made would be a larger fridge. Manageable, but often pushed to it's limits as we didn't shop that often, preferring to do weekly, big shops.
There was plenty to explore in the lanes and trails around the accommodation - abundant wildlife and a chapel in the valley.
As everything was so well thought-out we had no need to contact Emma, but we did meet her on departure and she couldn't have been more friendly and approachable.
We'd like to really thank David,Jane and Emma for a wonderful two weeks, and we'd definitely be back. We thoroughly recommend Gendaine as a perfect holiday rental. We'd also be interested if there are plans to provide another bedroom - when we holiday as an extended family, there's 9 of us.
What a wonderful review.....thank you. It is always good to receive positive feedback and to know that all the work we have put into the house in the last nine months is apprectated. You were ideal guests and we are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday so much. You are welcome back any time and I do hope that we will see you again.
Once again thank you, it is very much appreciated.

Fantastic fun family holiday
We had a wonderful two week holiday, and felt so at home in this beautiful house. We were so surprised to see that many areas of the house and garden had been renovated with a wonderful new terrace area, which had a fantastic seating area, gas BBQ and huge dining table!
The house itself was immaculate, and our children (3,6 & 9) were delighted to find many books, board games, DVD's and videos to entertain them, although the icing on the cake for them was the heated pool! Which was great when our first week was a bit cooler! The pool itself was very secure with a fenced gate and 2 alarms on the poolside. The house inside was lovely and cool and the kitchen was very well equipped.
We didn't travel far from the house, as we wanted a holiday that we could just chill and relax, and this was definitely a relaxing destination!
We did venture out occasionally and found a fantastic treetop climbing place in Nabinaud, and enjoyed pizza at the beach at St Aulaye. But the majority of our evenings were spent barbequing on the new, and very swanky BBQ!
We would highly recommend this as a family holiday, and we will definitely be back again! Thank you Jane and David for sharing your home.
Thanks for your review....we try to make the house as comfortable and well equipped as possible and it is great to receive such a nice review. thank you. Hope to see you again.

Stunning villa, perfect family holiday!
Everything about this holiday and villa was perfect. We were travelling with young children (2 year old and 6 month baby) and this house catered fantastically for our needs. With a highchair, children's toys and books all available, it meant less for us to pack! The heated pool was very securely locked with a fence round it, alarm on the pool and a padlocked gate. The facilities in the house are excellent with everything from a very well catered kitchen to a stunning Webber bbq on the veranda! The house was very clean and well maintained. The area is perfect for families with canoeing close by and a fantastic man-made beach a few kilometres away. There are also wonderful local markets on which are definitely worth a visit.
Thank you for your vauable feedback and we look forward to seeing you again.
