An old character property, in a country location. Great hosts and facilities
This is the third holiday we have taken in this property, it’s in a quiet county location but close enough to visit the beach and bigger towns.
The pool and garden are fantastic, and often the family did not want to move from this relaxing setting, We had many days just chilling and enjoying the garden without going out.
The property is well equipped, with new kitchen / appliances, and well stocked crockery and kitchen utensils.
There is a outdoor barn area for sitting / playing games if there is a day where the weather is not so good.
The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and keen to make your holiday as nice possible
This is a nice gite,which comes well equipped.We agree with the comments of the other reviews in stating positive points about the gite,pool, garden,area.
You will find Chris and Dawn very friendly and helpful which is a great plus.
A very good time was had by all
This is a lovely gite. It is so well appointed - TV wifi- and very comfortable.. We were very impressed by the fact that there was plenty of crockery, utensils , glasses etc. This is so nice - having stayed in places which only provide one plate etc per person. The facilities are excellent and although we went late late in the season, the gite was very clean and smart.
The gite is well placed for visitng the Vendee coast,- we spent one day in La Rochelle, and another on the Ile de Re. Thre were plenty of leaflets in the gite about all the various places of interest, where to eat etc. This is very helpful and saves time having to visit the Tourist offices. There are some lovely historical villages to the north of Fontenay and forested areas for walking etc.There is also a very good auberge in the village
We did spend quite a lot of time in the garden just lazing around as it is so quiet and very pleasant.
Chris and Dawn are excellent hosts who assisted us when required without being obtrusive. . Their gite gave us everything we needed to have a relaxing holiday.
Many thanks Dawn and Chris.
Great Gite in quiet village surrounded by lovely countryside.
This is our 2nd stay and we have booked again for next year. The Gite is spacious and clean and has everything you need for a comfortable relaxing holiday. The pool area and garden is a great place to relax, especially after a days cycling round the lovely quiet roads enjoying the wildlife that's all around.We have stayed in numerous properties throughout France and this is amongst the best. Chris and Dawn who live onsite are discreet, but are on hand if you require anything.
The best equipped Gite that we have stayed in with the warmest swimming pool...
As stated in the review title, the Gite is very well equipped - whether this be from the kitchen perspective to toys and games for the kids to play with. The Gite was very clean upon arrival and communications via Dawn were excellent throughout the booking process to the day of arrival. Chris keeps an eye on the pool and tweaked the temperature when a couple of cold nights affected the temperature - essential when you spend so much time in the pool supervising the kids. One of the reasons to book this Gite was the 'heated' pool and it didn't disappoint. There are a couple of places to dine outside and if you wish you can use the barbecue or 'plancher' provided. The Gite is also very well located, just 10 mins from the supermarkets and the AutoRoute.
Chris and Dawn are lovely hosts, we like our own company and never found Chris or Dawn intrusive, but we knew where they were if we needed help or advice (perfect scenario for us).
The master bedroom does suffer from road noise (the Gite I must stress is not on a busy road), but with single glazing and located just a few metres from the roadside you do hear vehicles at night, sometimes getting the odd glare from their headlights and they do at times go past at quite a pace.
From a layout perspective you can't see the swimming pool from the Gite, I wouldn't leave the kids unattended at anytime when they are in the water, but going back to the Gite to prepare lunch for example does mean that you can't keep a watchful eye on the kids even at the side of the pool. Just something to consider ,as for me a review should help people to understand the layout of a property that the pictures don't always illustrate.
I don't agree with paying for the Gite to be cleaned upon my departure. This is in the contract that you will sign when booking and only applies to one week rentals. However, the cost of a weeks rental is the same whether booked for one or two weeks so why penalise the one week rentals? The cost is 41 Euros and with departure expected to be no later than 10am on the day of check-out, it's not possible to clean to Chris and Dawn's high standards, as well as packing the car without getting up at 6am on the last day of your holiday. Plus it's my holiday and cleaning the oven and bathroom isn't part of what I find relaxing.
The WiFi is poor.
The negatives are all part of a review, would I book this Gite again - absolutely, would I recommend to friends - absolutely.
Thank you for your 5 STAR review, we are really pleased you all enjoyed your holiday.
Just to clarify some of your comments. The cottage is in a small hamlet with minimal traffic and there is the option of closing the shutters on the double window/door to the front of the cottage at night. Also, every window is already double glazed.
The pool is gated and for safety reasons we do advocate that young children are never left alone for any reason.
Yes we do offer an end of stay final clean, as an incentive for our clients to book with 2 weeks with us.
