“Blois blanc”
Reviewed 21 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

Having only booked for 1 week we were lucky enough that the cottage was vacant and extended our stay for a second week. We think that says it all. The place certainly has that " WOW" feel about it, with a beautiful setting, wonderfully quiet and so relaxing, and a host (Badger) who made sure our stay remained a wonderful memory.
We stayed in the cottage that has been renovated to a high standard with touches that made you feel as comfortable as your own home. The newly renovated Barn next door (but not that close) looked just as inviting, especially with its mood lighting, and the swimming pool was to die for, with large, beautiful, relaxing sun beds.
The welcome pack when we we arrived and the fresh bread daily added to the little touches that the "Davis family" plan to make your stay so enjoyable, plus we think according to each individual family they add little extras or pressies, (p.s. Barney loved his).
If you are looking for a holiday rental that has quality, peace, a welcome from the host, lovely areas and towns nearby to explore (you do need a car) we certainly can recommend Blois Blanc.

“What can we say – WOW!!!”
Reviewed 1 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What can we say – WOW!!!
Fantastic from start to finish.
Accommodation – 5 star luxury with character included. Superb pool, had a job to extract ourselves from it. The setting is quiet, relaxing and beautiful.
Chris the owner is very informative, friendly and a great host. We had a fantastic day with Chris, India and Willow down by the Charante river canoeing and swinging off the tree swing into the river.
Overview – Chris went out of his way to ensure our stay was fabulous, with information on what was happening in the area before we arrived, a lovely welcome pack when we first got there and lots of information on where to eat and places to visit. The Fete-du-Cognac was a really enjoyable evening.
All in all we had one of our best holidays ever (and we’ve had a few!!).

“Superb”
Reviewed 27 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We only had one week with Chris, Mandie, India & Willow, oh how we wish it was 2 weeks or longer !!!. The cottage was superb, spotlessly clean, with welcome basket on arrival and fresh bread every morning. The Davis family were not in the least intrusive, but there when needed.
It really is 1st class. To be invited to their own home was way and above what was expected.
If you are looking for peace and quiet, with outstanding quality and the best welcome.
Then book here. You will not be disappointed.

“Perfect holiday getaway”
Reviewed 23 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We all agreed that our holiday at Bois Blanc was our best holiday ever!! Chris, Mandie, India and Willow made this a holiday we will never forget, their hospitality surpassed anything we have ever experienced on a self catering holiday, they all go the extra mile to ensure you have the most relaxing break possible. The cottage was fantastic, with everything you need to make it home from home, with a few luxuries thrown in that you wouldn't have at home!! The welcome basket was just what was needed after a long drive from the ferry. The daily bread deliveries and weather forecasts were a great touch. The countryside surrounding Bois Blanc is some of the prettiest we have come across, there are lovely drives along the Charante river which wind through sleepy villages. Chris's knowledge of the area is a great asset and he is able to point you to all the best places. We were sorry to leave when our two weeks were up and could have happily stayed longer. I hope we can return very soon.

“Everything it says it is and more!”
Reviewed 9 July 2011 for a stay in May 2011

This was our first visit to Bois Blanc, and it was fab! The gite itself is of high quality and soooo clean and everything provided - even down to the cotton wool pads in the bathroom! It had everything we needed. The meal basket that Chris and Mandie provided after a long drive was perfect - a wonderful welcome. The pool area is fantastic and our girls loved it - Mandie, Chris, India and Willow really were the perfect hosts who were on hand, helpful but not at all intrusive. We had a wonderful week here and felt so relaxed - we highly recommend this wonderful gite, surroundings and region - we would love to return one day. We also found the location ideal for day trips not that we did many as we didn't want to leave such a wonderful relaxed place!

“So good this was our 2nd trip...”
Reviewed 3 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

...and we are looking forward to the 3rd! Another wonderful holiday at Bois Blanc. Home from home accommodation which relaxes you the minute you arrive. The peace and tranquility of Bois Blanc, the setting, the accommodation, the quality of the fixtures and fittings, the hosts...put it all together to make a 5* break. Chris, Mandie, India and Willow are amazing hosts without being intrusive. Nothing is too much trouble. The pool is great for the children (and us!) and we come away from Bois Blanc knowing we have had a wonderful rest...shame we do have to leave! The first accommodation in France we have been to that is what it says on the website!

“Our best family holiday - EVER!”
Reviewed 31 August 2009 for a stay in August 2009
1
person found this review helpful

Bois Blanc provided my family and I our best family holiday ever! Its location in the Cognac region is unsurpassed - peaceful, stress busting and perfect. Chris and Mandie who run Bois Blanc (the best hosts) provided us with an upmarket yet completely unpretentious, relaxed break. The gite is beautiful, it fits into the countryside surrounding it, yet inside it is modern and minimalist. The pool provided hours of entertainment for all of us but particularly for the children. Our children are 15 and 10 but neither one ever complained of feeling bored or dissatisfied. Fresh bread was delivered to the door every morning by Chris, who brought a different type each day to try! Chris also provided us with invaluable hints and tips of where to visit in the area. He also arranged some excellent Cognac tours for us, one to Henesseys and one to a local grower. It was absolutely perfect.
