“Beautiful , Rural Retreat ! ”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Myself, family and friends rented all 3 gites available at Gites du Bois. We were not disappointed. The gites are excellently equipped with everything required for a stay for adults and children alike. The kids had a great time in the pool , and playing in the beautiful garden. The gites are in a peaceful, rural location , with beautiful scenery. The nearest town Aulnay, is a 5 minute drive away with local shops, a couple of Restaurants and a Supermarket. The gites are ideally placed to explore Charente-Maritime. Venturing out to explore the local area is a must! We had great times visiting Cognac, Saintes and La Rochelle. Neil and Jane ( owners) are fabulous hosts who cannot do enough to help and advise . A return visit to these Gites for us, is a must.

Thank you, we enjoyed having you all. We look forward to your return. Our gites are perfect for family & friends to come together yet still have their own facilities.

“Peaceful and charming location”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Perfect location for relaxing. The garden is fantastic and there's everything you need in the house (towels, household equipment).
A little minus: the stairs which can be difficult to climb for some people.

“Perfect summer holiday”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our family of four had the most lovely two weeks staying at Buddleia Gite. Jane & Neil have done a fantastic job of renovating & furnishing the gite. Everything we needed was there, from towels to sharp knives! Nothing was too much trouble for them. They take enormous pride in their labour of love & rightly so.
The setting of the gites is perfect, set in beautifully laid out gardens. There are lots of places to chill out, including the pool, which the children particularly enjoyed. The wifi & UK tv channels were also popular! The grownups enjoyed the peace & quiet, soaking up the sun.
Cherbonnieres is a picturesque, peaceful French village. It is typical of the area, in that you need to travel to a larger town (Aulnay) for the supermarket & boulongeries, but that was never a problem.
We did a fair bit of sightseeing, as the gite is ideally placed for exploring the area. Ile de Re & La Rochelle were lovely and only about an hours drive.
We would not hesitate to recommend Gites du Bois & fully intend to revisit. Thanks Jane & Neil for a fabulous holiday.

“Lovely, peaceful location!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Gites de Blois. Jane and Neil were very welcoming. Everything was very relaxed. Our three year old enjoyed the large garden in which the gites are set. The play area is a bonus as are the owners' cats which our little one was keen to make friends with. The gites are very comfortable and decorated to a high standard. We had a wonderfully peaceful time!



The village is a good location from which to explore this region of France. We enjoyed a visit to Ile de Olearon, 1hour 30 drive away. The town of Saintes (30 mins) which has some lovely Roman remains and a nice streets to wonder around. La Rochelle was a must, just to visit the town of our french text books.

Thank you for your review. We are amending the satellite system to receive French tv. All the gites already have sufficient crockery/cutlery for 8 guests as standard, not just 4!
