“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have recently returned from a trip to Les Petites Pierres and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is has lots of features lovely fireplace and beams and is very cosy, the most comfortable beds we have slept in. The owners Anne & Ray are the best hosts we have experienced in France, always on hand if you need anything but discreet enough if you want your privacy. The swimming pool is spotlessly clean and the decking area around is great for sunbathing. There is plenty to keep everyone occupied with lovely walks, table tennis, boules, which we really enjoyed and of course "the wine". There were lots of nice villages to visit Vouvant being our favourite, Parthenay was good lots of old world streets and the Marias Poteviene we loved, took a guided tour on the waterways which was excellent value would definately recommend.

“Great place for a holiday with children, lovely area”
Reviewed 23 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Les Petites Pierres is a great place to stay, especially if you're travelling with children. It's relatively compact, but well-equipped and comfortable. It has a private terrace with table and chairs outside the front door, and a further private garden with barbecue.

The setting is idyllic, a wood-covered valley with a stream running through. Fabulous walking and cycling right outside the front door. Lots of interesting wildlife. Our children particularly loved the games field, which has badminton, table tennis and a football area.
The pool is a sheltered sun-trap with plenty of sun loungers to go round.

There are plenty of interesting places to explore nearby, and la Rochelle and the Ile De Re are just over an hour away.

The owners are friendly and helpful.

“Very friendly, welcoming and relaxed stay. Highly recommended”
Reviewed 31 January 2012 for a stay in July 2011

Anne and Ray were very helpful and welcoming. The gite was small and not luxurious but very clean and comfortable, everything worked well. The location was very rural and beautiful but easy driving distance from places of interest. Our family of 13 and 7 year old boys loved the outside space and pool; it was very safe. We enjoyed our stay very much and are returning this year with extended family!

“Lovely cosy cottage in charming french countryside.”
Reviewed 12 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Anne and Ray were really accommodating, as we were very last minute! We stayed for a couple of weeks in Petite Pierres in early winter, we loved the wood burner and lots of walks in the surrounding countryside. Anne and Ray were extremely helpful and more than happy to help with anything we needed.. ensuring a generous supply of wood! We definately recommend this to people looking for a peaceful retreat in winter! (and I'm sure would also be delightful in summer - there are plenty of activities)

“Homely, comfortable and well equipped with owners who can't do enough to ensure your stay is perfect”
Reviewed 11 December 2011 for a stay in June 2011

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this gite in June 2011 and when we needed to return to France on a house hunting trip in October 2011, we had no hesitation in staying again. The gite itself is so cosy, comfortable and extremely well equipped. There is a lovely pool with decking surrounding it, plenty of chairs and parasols and the whole area is clean and well looked after. The gite is situated in a quiet, peaceful and picturesque area. The owners, Anne and Ray who live on site, could not do enough to help us and make our stay perfect. There is a welcome pack on arrival and loads of information about the surrounding area should guests want to go sight seeing etc. If you just want to relax, the gite has its own patio area and indoors there are books, games, a TV etc. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this gite.
