Customer comment for the Pigeonnier

July 24th- August 1st 2009
We have a family of three boys and they had made great friends during the week, especially with Louis. Nigel and Suzanne were great hosts, friendly, helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our week.
The Pigeonnier was very well equipped especially for the boys cot, trampoline and pool. The availability of the bikes, umbrella and beach equipment really made a difference to our enjoyment.
The morning bread van and local super market in Surgeres are very good. The local pizza van is very good and spoke good english.
We had a day at Coulon (Venise Verte) and then Damvix and Marans. All are very picturesque. At Marans we hired a motorboat for an hour (19euros), but you can hire a gondola. Our boys (6 and 5yrs) really enjoyed the lake at Saint Savinion. We hired small electric boats which they could steer on the small lake with an adult.
The beaches we enjoyed the most are about an hour away. Le Platin just up the coast from Royan near the Côté Sauvage and La Palmyre zoo. Both the beach, coast line and zoo are meant to be excellant.
We visited the aquarium in La Rochelle which is excellant 13 euros/ adult and 10 euros for children >6 yrs. The sand on the beach at Châtelaillon and Fouras are excellant. We did not like the estuary and underfoot, the french were used to this. The sandiest beaches are down the coast.
The weather has been good all week 25°C.
Thanks Nigel and Suzanne when we come back this area again we would try and stay with you again!
Thanks for a great holiday week.
