Reviewed 5 August 2013

We have just returned from our holiday at Les Chardonnerets where we stayed with 20 others including 10 children and we all had the best time. The place was brilliant and catered so well for us all, the children had a blast and we found it hard to get them out of the pool, off the climbing frame and off the trampoline. The place has been so beautifully converted, lovely rooms and very comfy beds! to be honest I can not fault the place and the owners who were so accommodating both before and during our stay. We have already started talking about when we can all go back...

17 bikers, with Harley Davidson's have just had their 2nd holiday in La Maison du Ble, the accommodation has been renovated into one big space which is truly amazing. The weather was not as good as last time, but Jon & Julia did everything possible to help us and sort us out with extra beer and wine for when we arrived. We will definitely be back again.

Thank you very much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you back and we were particularly interested in your response since you are the first group that has stayed at Les Chardonnerets / La Maison in both it's earlier incarnation as two gites and now as single large property. Your positive feedback and suggestions were very much appreciated and we look forward to (hopefully) seeing you back here again in the future.

Just returned from a week at La Chardonnerets and had a fantastic time.
The gite is wonderful: spacious, well maintained and has everything you could need. We travelled with two toddlers and one baby and they thoroughly enjoyed their time. John and Julia have a gorgeous accommodation here and offered meals and support with anything if required. Amazing place and we will definitely be returning.

We have just returned from a week @ Les Allouettes, Le Langon, France which is about a 50 minute drive from La Rochelle itself - the hospitality offered by Julia and Jon was fantastic. Party of 4 adults and 2 kids (7 and 11) who had a ball; entertained by the array of pets, swimming pool and outdoor facilities! The gite was perfect for relaxing in, with home from home comforts, and this is the first time we have shared accommodation with friends, but given the separate wings, privacy was not an issue and worked well! If you want a really relaxing holiday this is perfect but you are quite remote with very little going on in Le Langon itself but Fonteney-le-Comte is only about a 10 minute drive away which is bustling!

We recently stayed with Vendee Vacances and had a wonderful holiday. The gite was lovely and the pool gorgeous. The whole thing was very easy with our children and Jon and Julia did so much to make sure we had a great time. We'll definitely be back.

One week in the gites with other families. Large open space for the children to play in and a great pool for them to attempt to drown themselves in. Evenings we're quiet as the little ones were shattered from all the play. Mouzeuile is quiet to the point of near extinction but Julia's food was great and the local wine good. :-) John was fast to act on the only issue we had and we were demanding as a group, having children from <1 to 10 years old. Julia & John were hospitable and very welcoming. $64000 question, would we go back with the family? Yes! Says it all really. Recommended
