“Excellent French Retreat with charming hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2010

From the time you arrive you feel totally welcome and step into a charming, clean house.
Les and Louise have made it very unique and added lots of special touches.
We as a young family have stayed here a few times and we are still excited about staying a fourth time later this year..
The food is delightful and I'd personally say better than most restaurants. T he pool is spotless. The garden is beautiful.
The local area is easy to explore. Coulon area is great to visit and The monkey park is a fun day out .
Make a special drive to Rochelle and Il De Rie and to the lovely beaches.
Even though you are on a family holiday - It is still a relaxing one !

Bois Bourdet is set in a beautiful, peaceful location and has wonderful welcoming hosts in Les and Louise (and not forgetting daughter Ellie!). It is ideal for families with young children and has high quality accommodation, lovely gardens and grounds including a heated pool, swing, slide, trampoline, wendy house and resident chickens!
We have spent 2 wonderful hoilidays there and are already booked back in for this year! The piece de resistance is that although it is self catering, dinner can be cooked and served to you on your terrace by Les and Louise on any evening if you choose, meaning you get the convenience of self catering but the luxury of a restaurant some nights (with no babysitting hassles!) if you want it.

We stayed at Bois Bourdet with our young son and have booked to go again this year with our daughter as well. The setting is rural, peaceful and beautiful. The faclities for young children are fantastic and ensure a truly relaxing holiday for us all. The most outstanding part of the holiday for us was the first class food, served on your own patio while the kids sleep. It was easliy restaurant standard and made it feel like a luxury you couldn't live without! we would definitley echo the review of other visitors and say that it would be nice to keep this place a secret but others deserve to experience it as well. Les and Louise are perfect hosts and we are disappointed we can only stay a week this year.

BB is simply magnificent. Les and Lou are fabulous hosts, the setting is magical, the facilities excellent and the food wonderful. Trip Advisor only allow five stars but be in no doubt this place is worth more. We are returning again this year for our <lost count> visit. It will not be our final visit! A very, very, very special place. Thanks to L and L (and E). You have created something magnificent.

We stayed at Bois Bourdet for 2 weeks with our 2 young children last summer. This was our first holiday to France with the kids in tow so I had done a lot of research prior to traveling to ensure everything would work out and we definitely were not disappointed. The accommodation is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need, towels, cots etc and a wonderfully equipped kitchen.
Les and Louise are excellent hosts, they made us feel very welcome and were extremely helpful. The food is first class and so is the beautiful veg garden.
The pool is a great attraction as well as the beautiful grounds where the kids can run free. The area around the accommodation is fenced in so the kids can wander safely and the pool is locked/alarmed so it really is a very relaxing holiday for both the kids and adults.
I would definitely recommend Bois Bois Bourdet to people with young families so much so that we are returning again this summer.

As soon as we arrived at Bois Bourdet on a balmy summers evening to be met with a warm welcome and the offer of a cold beer I knew this wasn't going to be our last visit. It wasn't ! Hosts, Les and Lou and charming daughter Ellie couldn't have been more accomodating during our stay in this rural idyll. Each of the cottages has been lovingly and sympathetically restored to a high standard and we felt completely spoilt. Home grown organic vegetables and herbs were in abundant supply and chickens running around the gardens just added to the charm of this beautiful place. The ultimate in chill out holidays and I haven't even mentioned the amazing food.

We love this place so much that we are about to go back for our fifth visit! We have been at all times of the year, including Christmas and have always had a fantastic time, with plenty to do. The gite has the feel and quality of a boutique hotel, but with Les and Louise's warm family welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and the home-cooked dinners are amazing. The only problem we have with recommending Bois Bourdet is that we don't want too many people to know about it!
