Comment taken from the Pressoir comments book

5-10-09 to 19-10-09

My wife & I have been visiting 'La Metairie' for several years now and have seen all of the hard work that Nigel & Suzie have invested to make this a truly wonderful place to stay.
We have enjoyed 'le Pigeonnier', the 'Farmhouse' & this time 'le Pressoir' all of these gites have been very comfortable, very clean and well maintained, they all have everything that you need and more for a relaxing holiday, especially with the addition of the swimming pool.
The peaceful setting being surrounded by open countryside make it the perfect base to explore the Charente Maritime.
Over the year's we have visited many places & still find new ones every visit. La Rochelle is a must, it has a wonderful atmosphere & there always seems to be something going on. The islands are beautiful, Ile de Ré for its narrow streets & lovely ports. Oleron with it's spectacular beaches accessed through wooded areas. For more beaches there is Chatelaillon and Fouras reached in less than 30 minutes. At Fouras explore the town & visit 'point fumeé'. Visit Rochefort for a great market (saturday morning) and shops, see also the 'Hermione' sailing ship being built there. On the outskirts of Chatelaillon you must visit the 'trotting races' held at certain times of the year.
Then there is the historical town of 'saintes' for its Roman ruins and Ampitheatre, the list is endless!
We have enjoyed every visit here thanks to the wonderful hospitality of Nigel, Suzie and the children.
