Authentic farm

By Hans v on 30-Sep-2019

"Les cerises" is an authentic "Charentais" farm which is nicely renovated and very well equipped. Especially the kitchen is fantastic with its oven. Also the fantastic terras and the surrounding grounds we loved. We did stay for 2 weeks late september. The first week was very warm and therefore we used the lovely pool several times. The services from the french Lady for the owner were perfect. The villages Courcoury and Chaniers are reel French and very quiet. The Charente maritime is a lovely Departement. Authentic French and with an interesting coast.

Family Summer holiday 2019

By Jenny N on 01-Sep-2019

As a party of 9 (4 adults, 5 children) we couldn’t fault the property! Peaceful location and perfect house - well equipped and very clean. The pool was such a bonus - it was very hot when we stayed and we spent lots of time in the pool cooling off! The surrounding area has lots to offer - we visited the towns of Saintes and Cognac as well as the beaches at Royan and Côte Sauvage - all of which were really fun days out! We all highly recommend the house!

Spacious, well equipped, perfect retreat!

By Lisa L on 06-Aug-2019

Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate everyone comfortably. Kitchen is modern and well equipped with large fridge and and extra one in the utility room with additional separate freezer. Living space is big and airy. Outside dining area is well shaded for those hot afternoons chilling out looking at the fantastic view. The pool is a very short distance away from the house, it''s got its own toilet and sink facilities and we all enjoyed it. There is a lovely restaurant in nearby village Courcoury and great creperie in nearby village of Chaniers where there is a little supermarket for your supplies and you can take a little ferry across the river! Nearby Saintes has loads of restaurants and shops and larger supermarket. We really enjoyed our stay and would stop here again! Great communication with the owner too. We had fantastic weather which was a bonus.
