4 of 5 stars Reviewed 8 October 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We booked in July to escape the very disappointing rain soaked summer and get some sun our bones before the children headed back to school. We flew into La Rochelle and hired a car from the airport and had a lovely relaxing journey to La Forge. Colin and Ann were very helpful and gave us lots of recommendations on things... more

Wonderful weather alongside a fab pool made for a great stay. The owners were very welcoming and available whenever they were needed but not at all intrusive - a difficult balancing act we are sure! We would stay again. The property was small but clean and well equipped. Very private too as tucked away from the rest of the site. more

We found them extremely helpful...
