We took a two week trip driving around France and Julia, Robert and Daisy's place was our first stop. We found it by chance on google and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. They're very friendly hosts and can really point you in the right direction for things to do in the area. Even gave a few personal references to local cognac producers. When we realized there weren't any restaurants open nearby on Monday evening, Julia made sure to prepare another of her wonderful dinners.

If you're looking for a personal, hospitable B&B in the cognac area, come here!

Julia, Robert and Daisy have a really nice place and their hospitality was terrific. We stayed here and at another great b&b in Duras while we were thinking about where we might live. The weather was decidedly unhelpful with the whole region getting a good soaking, but we still loved our stay at Gite du Calme. We had a good look round in three days and look forward to seeng more when we return. Katie wants to move to France so thanks to Daisy for helping out with that!
In short, a stay at Gite du Calme won't disappoint. Thanks guys.
Mark, Elaine & Katie.

We have been to the Gite Du Calme for the past 2 years and its so relaxing! You're surrounded by vineyards and fields which is just perfect for a mid afternoon walk or a short car ride into the local town of Saintes or a bit further into Cognac. Get to them on market day and the fresh local produce is wonderful!

Julia, Rob and their daughter Daisy are lovely and so welcoming. Julia makes gorgeous meals on request (15 euros for 3 courses! Bargain!)

You can use their cycles, golf clubs, sun loungers, table tennis, trampoline, pool.....the list is endless of the activities you can do (at no extra cost) or if you're lazy like me you can just read by the pool in the sunshine :)

Planning on coming back here again next year.

Room Tip: Make sure you hire a car to get around in - just over an hour from the airport and handy for markets etc

Julie and Robert have got this one dead right.
Whether you are seeking B&B (Chambres d'Houtes) or a Gite (Self Contained accommodation) Gite du Calme near Cognac is for you.
Lovely, friendly hosts, superb presentation of the rooms/Gite; fabulous grounds; a swimming pool; wonderful breakfasts and great evening meals with plenty of wine!

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

We have just returned from a fantastic week away. As previous reviewers have mentioned the hosts Rob and Julia were truly welcoming and their 7 year old daughter kept our 4 year old son entertained for hours.
The gite is incredibly spacious and beautifully furnished. There were plenty of toys for the kids and aside from the pool they loved the giant trampoline, swings and large garden to run Around in.
We will definitely return.
