We had a fantastic stay and was truly a picturesque place to stay, the pool area was great and a really nice place to unwind. We took the boat out on several occasions and ended up in some lovely local bars which was really unique to anywhere else we have stayed in the past. Many thanks to Matt for being on hand for local information, we will be returning! This was one of my favourite holidays in France and I have been a lot of times! Just a great place to unwind and the garden is fantastic for the children with so many trees to climb. Many a late evening in the great pool terrace covered area having bbqs and swims.

We had a great holiday and really enjoyed our time here, the weather was superb the heated pool made all the difference and tired out the children and adults no end! I would highly recommend this property and would like to thank Matt and Em for all their help and advice during our stay. We will definitely be back!

This was a family holiday centred on young children aged 6 months to 6 years. It proved a great success. The farmhouse is large and comfortable and most of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and sitting rooms are exactly as described and easily coped with all the demands we put upon it. The outside is wonderful. A great swimming pool; lovely outdoor BBQ and eating area which is shaded on hot evenings. There is a large orchard running down to the canal giving a lot of shade and plenty of play space. The immediate countryside is ideal for cycling and short visits. The beaches at La Rochelle and Ile de Re are less than an hour away. Shopping is not a problem. Matt and Emily were very responsive to our needs and were lovely to deal with. We are likely to return and would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for a similar holiday.

Fabulous living and outdoor space. Ideal for family and friends to get together and the perfect venue for our wedding party (Matt and Emily did the catering with panache)! Stressed travellers loved the pool. Wish we had had a bit longer to explore the canals but we had a lovely pre-wedding meal in La Pigouille in the very pretty town of Coulon.
