“Fantastic”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have just got back from staying at Le Thou for a week. There were 4 adults and 1 child(3).
We have had a fantastic time! The cottage is beautiful and as as soon as we walked through the door it felt like home. The cottage has everything you need for your stay including a dolls house, books and games etc for my daughter.
Plenty of room if you were a larger party and you would still have plenty of space so you didn't get on top of each other.
The bed linen also had that fresh washed smell about it when we climbed into bed which again made us feel at home.
The pool was perfect to cool off in when the weather got to hot for us. The outside BBQ, fridges and dining area were a lovely treat so we didn't have keep running back to the kitchen.

We visited La Rochelle for a day and took our daughter to the aquarium then had mussels in a lovely restaurant over looking the harbour. Well worth a visit and plenty of eateries to choose from.

Another day took us to Vouvant which a nice little village with a few shops, galleries and cafes.

A five minutes drive away is a lake with beach, water slides, park and peddle boats which was a lovely place to visit if you have children.

Thank you Karen for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage. We hope to visit again in the near future and stay longer!

“Perfect relaxation”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our party of 5 adults and 2 teenagers had a very enjoyable 14 night stay in July/August 2016. The house was spacious and very comfortable with plenty of room for everyone and the garden area was fantastic. We made great use of the ping pong table and the outdoor patio and kitchen was perfect for barbecues on the warm summer nights. The house was very well equipped especially the kitchen which had everything you could think of. The house is remote but this helped everyone to relax and wind down. The lake nearby was great for a visit and we also made it to La Rochelle and Les Sables which were lovely. We had never visited the area before and found the pre-programmed sat nav invaluable in helping us to find the local restaurants and supermarkets etc. Karen and Jerry provided lots of information in advance of our arrival and kept in touch throughout the booking process. Our deposit was returned promptly too. Overall a fabulous holiday and I would have no hesitation in recommending Le Thou.
