Had a wonderful time staying at Le Vieille Ombres in October. The Gite was perfect and had everything we needed for a weeks holiday. The pool and garden area were well kept and the new play area went down a treat with the children. Charente-Maritime  is a lovely area with so much to do. Matha is a 15 minute walk away with traditional French bakeries and restaurants. We visited the beautiful town of La Rochelle with its harbour and plenty of shops and restaurants .

This place is relaxed, welcoming and in the perfect spot with just enough to do around locality. Chris and Sharon are very helpful and friendly and the accommodation spotless, spacious and with a typically french feel. Its great for little ones with plenty of spaces to play outside, a beautiful garden and fenced swimming pool. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our time at Les Vieilles Ombres / The Old Shades - We would definitely recommend a day trip to La Vallée des Singes (Monkey Village).

We absolutely loved our stay at Les Vieilles Ombres. The rooms are stunning and really clean too. We will love to come back but for a bit longer next time. Chris and Sharon are fantastic hosts and really made us feel welcome.

We stayed in le Cognac for 2 very hot weeks with our teenage daughter. The gite was comfortable, very clean and supplied us with everything we needed. The owners were most helpful and arranged a tour of a local Cognac house for us, as well as including us in the village Bastille Day celebrations. The grounds were a bonus, with the beautiful pool and both the sun & shade to cater for all tastes. Plenty to do & see locally.

We stayed in la Charente gite for a weeks holiday with our 2 young children....what a beautiful complex. Our gite was ideal for the family and the gardens & pool were fabulous. The children loved to explore the gardens and enjoyed the swing ropes and see-saw especially. The gardens & pool were very well looked after by the owners and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of supermarkets nearby and the BBQ outside our gite was used on numerous occasions.

Just a quick note to say thank you so much - both Ed & I had a great time in France and really enjoyed our time in Bagnizeau, in your lovely gite, sat around the pool, cycling in the area or visiting the local Pineau producers (which has gone down really well at home, by the way) You were both so friendly and helpful. Many thanks!
