“Our fourth time here!”
Reviewed 12 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our fourth time back staying in Le Cognassier. As always we were made to feel so welcome by the owners and had a lovely week. There's lots to see and do in the area and there's a lovely relaxed feel here. Brilliant.

“Fantastic and very child friendly”

person found this review helpful

I recently stayed at La Cerisier with my husband, 2 year old son and my father. We chose this place because it was child friendly and in close proximity to La Rochelle airport (50 mins). The gite was well equipped and had lovely antique furniture. There was a cot, highchair, stairgates etc so my son could easily run around without injuring himself.

The pool area was also fantastic and heated to a nice temperature.

Sue and Simon were fantastic hosts and we invited them round on our last night for a glass of wine. They organised dinner reservations for us and Sue also kindly offered to babysit.

We would definitely consider a return visit.

“Real gem of a gite, quiet location but within reasonable distance of the local attractions.”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stayed in Le Cerisier with our 21 month old baby boy and a second couple with their 2 year old. Beautifully restored building finished with care and attention to detail, really reflects the photos. 2 boys loved the swimming pool and roaming the grounds, playing with the toys available and making friends with the local french neighbours. Would highly recommend to anyone, with or without family in tow.

“Beautiful, stylish family friendly accommodation in a gorgeous location”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the minute we arrived we could not have felt more at home! Sue and Simon and their lovely children gave us a really warm welcome and we were overjoyed with the standard of the accommodation. The gites are furnished and decorated to a very high standard and we had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The set up is excellent for children who can play safely in the walled garden. The pool is beautiful and secluded and each gite has its own private garden - perfect for barbecues and sun worshipping. The other guests were delightful we learnt that they have been coming back for nearly 10 years they love it so much. Highly recommended.

“Beautifully furnished gite with outdoor pool”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in Le Cerisier with our 2 children (12 and 15). The gite is beautifully furnished, well equipped and filled with lovely French antiquities and vintage items from the owners online business. There is a very nice pool just a few steps from the front door. The owners made us very welcome and were very helpful and friendly. The location is good for local towns, supermarkets and restaurants and not too far to visit the coast. All in all a lovely place to stay.
