We have had a wonderful 2 weeks in the Pigeonnier. Thank you very much for making us feel so welcome. You have a beautiful home in a beautiful location!
Highlights of our stay have been Ile de Ré and Seb loved the aquarium at la Rochelle - ideal for a rainy day!
We wish you all the best.

Writing this just before we set off back to the airport.
What can we say about the Charente Maritime that hasn't already been said!
Suzanne & Nigel are very welcoming and our little gite became a wonderful home from home.
We had some lovely days out - would recommend a trip to the zoo in la Palmyre for those with small children or indeed anyone who has a small person hidden within them!
Île de ré is just beautiful - although avoid stopping for lunch in Sainte-Marie as there is nothing there except a wonderful coast line.
If it's the beach with good restaurants then Chatelaillon- Plage is the place for you.
Until next time,
Au revoir from the Bells.

Customer comment for the Pressoir

14th May to 21st May 2010

The ideal place for peace, quiet & relaxation. Gite is in a nice spot away from the hustle & bustle. Supermarkets everywhere and quite easy to find. We would recommend this place to family & friends. La Rochelle port harbour is a lovely place to visit & to eat, well worth a visit. Well we have enjoyed our stay.
Many thanks to Suzanne & Nigel, it was a pleasure.

Review for the "Pigeonnier"

01/05/ 2010

What a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed every moment of our time in your charming little cottage. As builders we can appreciate all the time and effort it took to rebuild this place from the rubble. And as gîte owners, we can see the effort you went to in order to make your cottage so delightful. We had everything we needed at our fingertips.
But most of all, we loved spending time with you and your family. Hope you can visit us in Africa someday and that you enjoy our condo.
With all best wishes.

Kay & Terry
