We spent 12 nights in one of the 2 bed cottages at Domaine de Rochebonne and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is certainly 'rustic' but suited us perfectly and had everything we needed for our holiday. The staff were all extremely helpful and welcoming and made us feel right at home straight away. We were very lucky with the weather...

It was an amazing setting for a wonderful family based holiday. Something for everyone to do with everything you could possibly need. Owners were approachable and communication was excellent from booking through to the end of our stay. Thank you we will most definitely be back!

Management response:

That is really nice of you. We enjoyed meeting you too. Looking forward to seeing you again one day.

I was so surprised to read the awful review just left by an obviously very grumpy person. We could not be talking of the same place? Rochebonne is welcoming with lots of little (free!) extras, it is friendly, very french although the owners are English, well situated for visits and sandy beaches, and I also find the price fair.

Thank you very much for this lovely review and for backing me after the rotten review recently left.Most people love the property and it is so hurtful when somebody is nasty like that. It is always the same type of person too! thanks again and we'd love to welcome you in France next year if you are holidaying in our...

About the neighbourhood
There is an excellent zoo at La Palmyre, also a good golf course. The island of Oleron is just a few minutes' drive with cycle tracks and all water sports. La Rochelle is probably the most famous town in this area, along with Fort Boyard where the TV games are held. The Roman town of Saintes is well worth a visit (stunning amphitheatre among other things) and the old military town of Rochefort with its famous fortifications is nearby. Royan is a relatively new town, having been blitzed during World War II, but nonetheless boasts miles of sandy beach and lots of restaurants. Visit the markets, chateaux, picturesque rivers, taste the local wines and eat at a wealth of seafood restaurants. Sporting opportunities are also abundant with cycling, golf, diving and other water sports. Swimm... more
