“Brilliant house and pool only 25 mins from lovely beaches. Owners so welcoming and helpful.”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a most relaxing 2 weeks at Chez Grand-Mere. The house is very well-equipped and the beds were so comfortable. The heated pool is gorgeous and gets the sun all day long. There is a lovely shady outdoor eating area. The house is situated in the heart of the village (great for getting morning bread etc) and yet is so peaceful. We have stayed in France virtually every summer for over 15 years and this was by far the best experience and the main reason is the owners. They live next door but are unobtrusive and just so lovely and helpful - on the first day we were delayed at Eurotunnel and they were just lovely. They emailed me back straight away offering to book us a restaurant or even cook us a dinner. In the end they bought our dinner and put it in the fridge! I can't imagine any other holiday owner doing that! There was also a lovely welcome package with lots of food, some beers and a couple of bottles of wine. We also enjoyed lovely tomatoes, garlic and shallots from their garden. In addition you get a 50 Euro voucher for the local restaurant. They didn't mind if we made a bit of noise and in fact just encouraged us to have a great time. We became so relaxed that by week 2 we hardly left the house and pool!!

“Comfortable, well maintained accommodation and thoughtful hosts”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in Chez Grandmere for 2 weeks this summer and had a wonderful & relaxing holiday.

The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are cool and light. The accommodation is very well maintained, comfortable and absolutely clean and there is definately room for 2 families to enjoy the Bordeaux region from a quiet, restful location.

In the kitchen there are all the utensils and more that you would need for 2 families - much more than the usual self catering accommodation. It is possible to sit and relax in the sun by the pool, under the shade of a lovely annex or inside in the lounge or play area on the first floor - all very well kept.

We were in Chez Grandmere as a family of 4 with Grandparents and an additional benefit of the property is the access for elderly. The bedroom on the ground floor with adjacent bathroom is only a few meters away from the lounge / kitchen area. It is possible to get from the pool to all areas of the property without steps. Allthough not truly wheelchair access this was an excellent property for people that find stairs or steep slopes difficult.

Finally to the hosts - Fiona and Callum are welcoming but respectful of the privacy of guests. Living adjacent to the property they were able to provide tips on places to visit or local services for which we were very grateful.

We would love to return to Chez Grandmere in the future and can really recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday with charm, comfort and a bakers, butchers and market all within walking distance !

“Home From Home - Super Bon + Pool!”

Superb - well Appointed Gite - The owners have thought of everything to make a relaxed Holiday. Situated in the small town of Gémozac in the Charente-Maritime - close to everything that you would need and no hassle to drive from airport in La Rochelle or Bordeaux. Our family and friends (8 in total) loved every minute staying in Chez Grand-Mère - plenty of space - beautiful interior decoration & garden - pool to die for - Super Owners! Fiona and Culum made us so welcome and gave us very detailed information about places to visit/restaurants/vouchers - nothing was left out! This ranks as one of the best holidays we have ever had and we will re-book for next year.
