Here is some feedback I have received so far.  I would love to hear back from you:

Hello Catherine. I just want to reiterate what a wonderful time we had on holiday with you. We felt so relaxed and I didn't want to come home. Your hospitality was exceptional. Sam said he'd had a wonderful time ! Once again you did over and above than anywhere we've been before. Thank you so much xx


"Location like in fairytale... Relaxed place."

"wonderful and stress-free

We had an amazing time here. We have 3 boys age 10,8 and 3. All of them loved this gite and the pool. It was such a wonderful stress free holiday. We didn't travel far at all from the gite, the boys were happy enough at the gite. We borrowed the bikes a few days and cycled to St. Ciers or just found a route round the various vinyards and sunflower fields. It was great to go downhill but tough to come back up! The gite was in a great location, close to beaches and shops. The BBQ was amazing we used vinewood! Sarah and the children made us feel soooo welcomed. My boys didn't want to come home. They loved the space, the freedom, the pool and the various games outside. The pool had plenty of pool toys but it could be a bit cold for my 3yr old, but he was happy pottering in and out of the water and around the pool. My husband and I felt very safe and totally relaxed. We arrived after a stressful time hiring a car, but the wine and fruit was such a lovely welcome. We relaxed with wine by the pool area as the BBQ was cooking. The gite was perfect. We could watch the boys play in the garden and in the pool from the gite. A fantastic holiday. Many thanks Sarah, Oscar and Megan x"


"Fantastic clean spacious gite (5 stars on Owners Direct)

The gite is one of two on the site, well-equipped and spotlessly clean with a lovely pool, huge garden with lots of things to amuse the children and very friendly family to point us in the direction of some great places to visit: an amphitheatre, lovely beaches, Cognac and super restaurants in a local harbour. The gite is surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields; a tranquil place within easy access of supermarkets and well-stocked boulangeries. We had a terrific time."

"We had a fantastic, albeit too short a stay. From the moment we arrived, when my kids saw the lovely, huge bowl of fresh fruit you left for us and throughout our stay, we had a great holiday.
The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to see and do, without having to go far at all. We left knowing that there is much more to explore and will be back I am sure.
La Galerie is beautiful and bright and perfiect for the whole family. Accommodation on both levels meant it was ideal for elderly parents who were travelling with us, as they did not have to worry about going up or down any stairs.The kids loved having the use of the pool as well as the ground space to play in. All in all a great holiday for us all. Thank you."

"Just back from a fabulous week at the Gites. My family rented both properties and all three generations have come back feeling thoroughly relaxed and rested from our break in the beautiful French countryside. Sarah has refurbished the gites to a high standard with everything immaculately painted, fresh and clean. The area is beautiful - so many great places to visit, plus grapevines and sunflowers as far as the eye can see. We loved our evening strolls around the nearby farmland, although the highlight for the children had to be the spacious swimming pool! We hope to visit again soon. Thanks Sarah!"

Best wishes

PS On the last night we had a fabulous evening out at Mortagne Port - eating at the Pizzeria on the marina waterfront. Would definitely recommend a visit if you haven't been before!
