“Les Capucines was a perfect place to relax with the family.”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived at Les Capucines after a very busy week of Watersports in the South of France and we had the most wonderfully relaxing week. Mark and Margy are fantastic hosts. La Grange is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We loved the private garden with BBQ , the gorgeous shared pool with its sunny terrace and there is plenty to see and do in the area. Everything was extremely well organised and clean and we would certainly come back!

“Fantastic relaxing holiday”

La Grange was everything we were expecting and more, the gite contained every creature comfort you could wish for and more! The kitchen is very well equipped. It was very clean and extremely well maintained, perfect for our family, 3 adults and two teenage children. It was lovely to be staying somewhere where the beds were so comfortable with lovely crisp sheets. Outside the gite is a lovely garden with BBQ and table and chairs.
We particularly enjoyed the pool, it's kept very clean, it is within a walled and securely gated area, there is a lovely terraced area with sun loungers, the temperature was 28*c everyday. Nearby is a shady area for those who wish to keep out of the sun but still enjoy the pool. Kept near to the pool are inflatable toys, cushions for the sun loungers and sun umbrellas.
We visited Ille De Re, the island has some beautiful villages and delicious ice creams. Rochefort, shopping and sightseeing, we enjoyed a lovely meal at La Cap Nell over looking the mariner. We had a day at Futuroscope which was great fun, as with all parks it involved a lot of walking and queuing (we discovered that you can use Tesco vouchers for Furturoscope). Fouras is a small town with lovely shops and cafes.
Each day we visited the bakery in Lussant, only a 5 minute drive away, lovely bread and delicious sweet and savoury pastries.
We had a fabulous holiday, Mark and Margy were wonderful hosts, we will return next year and will most certainly be recommending Les Capucines to our family and friends.

“A Peaceful Place to Relax”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are looking for a place to drop out of the rat race for a week or two then Les Capucines is the place for you. A peaceful spot for adults to relax but equally if there are children about then you are ideally never more than a short drive from beaches, amusements, historic sites and shops.
The gites are fabulously appointed, very comfortable and the pool is wonderful. We particularly liked the outside seating areas to every gite. We made the most of ours on the long warm evenings.
Mark and Margy were attentive but unobtrusive hosts and their restaurant suggestions were spot on. We are regular visitors to this part of France and will be back to Les Capucines to enjoy more of the area.

“Comfortable country holiday home”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Les Capucines is a large17th century stone farmhouse situated in the small hamlet of La Pilette. It has have been nicely converted into three adjoining rental properties, incorporating former stables/barn and the thick walls means that little sound penetrates. We stayed in Le Marronnier which has one downstairs bedroom and two upstairs, which was ideal for our party of two grandparents, two parents and two children. The downstairs bed was large and comfortable providing a sound sleep. Le Marronnier possesses a large well-equipped kitchen accommodating a large farmhouse table ideal for family meals with an adjoining comfortable lounge. Upstairs there is a bathroom with a shower cubicle, whilst downstairs is a bathroom containing a short bath with a stepped base, although we found this a bit awkward for standing in to shower, so it was best to go upstairs.
Le Marronnier is away from the road, faces south and gets the sun a lot. Outside is a gravel terrace/path with benches opposite a pleasant garden behind a hedge. In the garden is a large table and barbeque. The good-sized, walled swimming pool is a short stroll away and has plenty of loungers. The water is cold but lovely in the heat of the day. There is an undercover area with table tennis and other games.
Our hosts Mark and Margy have only been running the place for a few months but are very knowledgeable about the area and as you would expect of Aussies, very friendly. It’s about 5 minutes in the car to Lussant for fresh bread and croissants for breakfast, 10 minutes to the interesting riverside town of Tonnay-Charente and 15 minutes to historic Rochefort. The lovely seaside town of Fouras with several sandy beaches can be reached in 20 minutes.
We all agreed that we would be happy to have another holiday at Les Capucines.
