Our family decided it was time we had a joint holiday together and searched for a place that could accommodate fourteen adults and six children. We are so pleased we found La Soliniere!!! It ticked all the right boxes right from the start. The rooms were all clean and well equipped with little personal touches here and there, which added to our enjoyment. The gardens are a real treat packed with fruit trees, a lake with ducks and a duck house and of course, a spot of fishing.
Clive, the owner, is a real gent and only too ready to help and give advice. We had five cars in our family group and unfortunately had one or two problems. A cracked alloy wheel was soon replaced with the help of Clive. Air con problem and a broken-down car were all handled by the ever efficient Clive. Our sincere thanks go out to him for making our holiday free from stress!
Sam, the dog, stole twenty hearts and I'm sure Clive did a double check when we left La Soliniere to make sure we had not dog-napped him!
This venue is an ideal location for a family, large group or wedding party. The local town of Chef-Boutonne is just a seven minute drive away and has two well stocked supermarkets. Ruffec is a real delight with its twice weekly markets, bars and restaurants.
All in all, we had a fabulous two weeks at La Soliniere and wanted to stay longer.
Again, many thanks to Clive the owner!
