“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 11 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Petit Paradis courtesy of Philippe and Christiane, who were kind, welcoming and knowledgeable hosts. Accommodation was spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and perfect for our needs. Despite a couple of days of heavy rain, we enjoyed the pool and hot tub on sunnier days, and had fantastic weather over on Île-de-Ré where we explored the beaches. We were sad to leave, and can’t wait to return to this beautiful part of France!

Despite some rainy days, not usual in June, you said us enjoy too the farmers market in our near village and the electric bicycles. Some other activities wait for your next coming back.

“The peacful gite”
Reviewed 2 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Probably the best gite we have stayed at, excellently appointed, with a lovely pool, spa and a wonderful outlook. Included are two gorgeous donkeys. A thoroughly peaceful stay is guaranteed, our 5th stay, and hopefully not our last.

It's always the same pleasure for us to welcome your friendly family, each two years.
More than La Rochelle you visited last time, we'll propose other attractive parks as PUY DU FOU or FUTUROSCOPE, during your next coming.

“A real Find”
Reviewed 9 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Petit Paradis lived up to our expectations as we thought it would having found it via the Alistair Sawdays site. Philippe and Christiane were perfect hosts. They made us very welcome and provided all sorts of useful information on places to visit etc but were not at all intrusive. Thank you both very much indeed. The level of comfort and decor within the house was good and the salt water pool and spa were great and both very clean. The location is perfect for a relaxing stay with quiet roads and trails for walking and cycling and we expect to return again in the future.

Very kind of you to let such comments. You enjoyed the cottage and the surrounding area, but many other places are to see further: atlantic coast with wonderful beaches, famous theme parks as FUTUROSCOPE and PUY DU FOU. Of course, we will be very pleased to see you again.

Pool, hot tub and stone thick walls of the cottage are appreciable when the weather is hot as your first week.
Many other places are to discover: the atlantic coast, the famous theme parcs as "Puy du Fou" and "Futuroscope".
We particularly appeciated your presence and your return would be for us too, a real pleasure.

“Amazing property in a fabulous location”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Petit Paradis couldn't have been better for our holiday with friends and family. The Gite has been beautifully restored and the facilities provided are second to none.

The places we visited from here that I would definitely recommend are:

* Ile de Re which seems to be the west coasts version of St Tropez. Beautiful beaches, stunning marinas, great restaurants, etc (about 1 hour 15 to get there including the 3km long bridge from La Rochelle to the island)
* The Marie Poitevin region. We visited Coulon were we hired a boat to paddle around the canals and waterways. The Marie Poitevin is known as Green Venice with all the little villages nestled amongst the trees and waterways. (15 minute drive to get there)

There's heaps of other attractions and sites to visit but we wanted to enjoy Petit Paradis playing with the donkeys, fun in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, walks through the countryside, etc so will definitely be returning to explore further.

Christiane and Philippe are the most wonderful hosts who we are looking forward to seeing again soon.

Thank you so much again.

It will be for your next returning and we are already glad to welcome you again. Thank you very much.

Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This 'home away from home' has the wow factor for me.
It is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with fantastic views.
They have thought of everything to allow you to just relax and enjoy your holiday.
Philippe and Christiane are very welcoming and their knowledge of the area and things to do is amazing.
Thank you for having us.

Yes, we try even to do that you feel better than at home, offering amenities of comfort and relaxation, more the nice weather, near the Atlantic coast. Many other things to do and see if you wish to be back; we will detail them with pleasure.

“Fabulous Farmhouse ”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

5 of us stayed for 1 week and we were blown away by how beautiful the farmhouse is.

It's a beautiful and spacious home with 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a massive veranda overlooking the heated swimming pool/jacuzzi and gardens.

This place is perfect for any holiday for friends or family staying.

Monsieur Philippe is very helpful and knowledgeable of anything you need to know about the house, area and places to visit.

I would recommend Petit Paradise and would stay again.
