“Beautiful gite in an idyllic setting”

We have just returned from our second stay at the fantastic Orchard gites and would recommend them highly. The area is beautiful, with fields of sunflowers and vineyards on the doorstep. The gite is extremely well appointed, clean and tastefully decorated with a wonderful garden and barbecue area. It is a private and peaceful setting but just a short car journey can take you to any number of local attractions...Royan, Saintes, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Ile de Re, Thalmont to name but a few. The owner is so welcoming and helpful and we loved getting to know this area of France a bit better.

Views of sunflowers and vines greet you along with a very warm welcome from the host. We found this an ideal rural holiday location with plenty to visit close by. Accommodation just as described on owners website, along with great outside space for alfresco dining/BBQ. Thank you for a lovely week.

“One of the best holidays ever !!!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

One of the best holidays we've had in the past decade. If you want a peaceful and tranquil place to rest and enjoy the rolling country side and sight of vineyards from the garden (which is itself a delight with flowers, plenty of garden furniture, barbecue and for the energetic, opportunities to practice ping-pong) this is the place for you. But if you want a busier time exploring the area there are spectacular forest walks on the doorstep and beaches and small towns (full of wonderful markets) within 20 minutes drive. Bordeaux is also really worth a day's outing and it's only just over an hour away too.

The owners are very welcoming and helpful giving you all the advice and help you need to really appreciate all that the location has to offer. As to the accommodation, it is very clean and well supplied with all that you need for a very comfortable holiday.

All in all, very highly recommended. So much so, that we're going back in September!

“Wonderful welcome in beautiful area”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I have just returned from a fantastic stay at the orchard gites, where I stayed along with my partner and our six year old daughter in Le Cerisier. Sarah and her family were wonderful hosts; warm, welcoming and full of advice about the area. The gite was stylish, well equipped, really clean and comfortable. It was idyllic to sit in the gorgeous garden eating breakfast (sometimes including eggs from the family's chickens or cherries that we had picked from the trees) looking out across the vines. I would recommend a car to explore the area and there is plenty to please all age groups. We loved the picturesque villages, beaches within an easy drive, local shops and markets, aquarium and swimming pools. This is a wonderful gite in a beautiful location and we would recommend it highly. We would love to return.

“Rural French idyll - c'est magnifique!”

I took my mother for a week's gite holiday in France. We loved it here - very quiet and peaceful, in a lovely unspoilt part of France. The gite we stayed in was a brand new conversion - very well equipped, everything had been thought of. The English owners couldn't have been more helpful - and we loved the fresh eggs and homemade jam to welcome us! Lots of pretty places to visit nearby - we loved the hollyhock village of Tremont, the Roman town of Saintes and the picturesque port of Montagne. Nice walks through the vineyards and forests too surrounding the gites, and the owners recommended a lovely restaurant close by run by a charismatic artist - highly recommended!
