Customer comment for the Pressoir

15.09.09 - 22.09.09

What a fantastic launch - pad 'Le Pressoir' proved to be for us to discover this fabulous region. We visited Rochefort and it's Corderie & Hermoiné (do take a look at this engineering wonder).
The Iles of Oléron & Ré are just superb. How the other half live! The Chateau in Oléron and St Martin on Ré are excellent. You must try Moules Grande mere & les Huitres (oysters) even if you think you don't like them.
As many previous visitors we went to le Bateau Lavior in Landrais & had a superb meal - you must go for the experience. We went to the Remy Martin tour in Cognac - it was excellent - you have to go to meet Louis!
Finally no visit here would be complete without at least one trip to La Rochelle. It is a paradise for boat lovers the world over & there is so much else to see there too.
Thank you Nigel & Suzanne for excellent accomodation & advice on where to go - we crammed so much into a short time, even two trips to the beach!!
Bonne chance
Steve & Helene

Customer comment for the "Farmhouse"

12/09/2009 - 19/09/2009

A lovely, relaxing holiday. Loved the farmhouse, very cosy & well equipped. Avy (our 3 year old daughter) had a wonderful time & now wants a trampoline of her own!
Lots of lovely places around to visit, but must admit to just enjoying the peace & quiet in the farmhouse.
Thanks to Nigel & Suzanne for a wonderful stay.

Kellie, Rob & Avy.

Customer comment for the Pressoir

6/10/09 - 15/9/09

A thoroughly enjoyable stay with Nigel & Suzie. So impressed with the accomodation and their hospitality.
The beaches are wonderful and we enjoyed the September sun at La Rochelle, Fouras and Ile de Ré.
We also visited Cognac, a lovely town and was impressed with the Hennersey Distillery.
We also visited Royan, La Tremblade, Rochefort (no cheese!!) enjoying the shops, markets and restaurants for a lazy lunch!
A visit to the 'Bateau Lavoir' restaurant was a culinary delight - though advise that you fast for the day prior to eating there as the food is plentiful to say the least. Be prepared for the traditional French cooking!!
Back to blighty we must go, however we hope to be back!!
Thank you Nigel & Suzie and good luck for the future here!

Customer comment for the "Pressoir"

27/08/09 - 01/09/09

A very enjoyable stay in very tastefully restored gîte! We have had a great time visiting Fouras & Châtelaillon beaches which are good for the children. La Rochelle for the retail fix! With too many good restaurants to single one out although we have enjoyed our meals here just enjoying the surroundings and pool until late.
The Île de Ré is a must see trip. Both St Martin de Ré and La Flotte are beautiful, all areas here exceptionnally good facilities and very cheap parking!!
We will certainly be recommending "Le Pressoir" etc... to our friends.
