All within the beautiful Charente Maritime region of South West France.This gite is located all on one level so it's ideal for young children. The private garden is located to the side of the gite and has seating for 4 so great for all that out-door living.There is a double room and a twin room and space for a cot if required.There is parking in-front of the the gite.The nearest town is Saintes which as well as offering many places to visit with its Roman Heritage, has all your shopping needs.This attractive, comfortable and very well equipped gite is ideal for family holidays with everything you would need for a young family. Or this peaceful setting is ideal for a quiet get away. Spend the day by the pool or relaxing in the garden.

“Charming gite in a magical setting”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2015

On arrival received a warm welcome from our hosts, the gite was immaculately prepared, , with every accessory you would need. The property is located in an picturesque unspoilt village and situated in well maintained mature gardens, with access to a lovely pool and seating areas . Secure parking is provided on site. The uncongested roads provided easy access to La Rochelle and Angouleme. Will be back.

My wife and I have spent a wonderful two weeks in a quiet part of more than about 45 minute from city life just incase.......there was no real need.....everything about the accommodation was excellent. plenty of space, wonderful pool, patios, bbq......indoor and outdoor were both excellent, well maintained and plenty of room for bigger groups. We had days out to see the sights.....Cognac, La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Ile D'Oleron, Royan, Saintes to name but a few........or days by the pool........or both as the sun was out until late (9:30ish.....beginning of June). Relaxing on the patio with a little of the local Pineau....a couple of steaks or fish on the BBQ...... The 'super-market' 5 minutes away had everything so shopping was easy...... this place is a must for those who wish to completely turn off and relax for a week or so....

“Great Holiday”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2014

We had a great family holiday staying at l'olivier. Catherine and Terry were very helpful and were on hand for all enquiries. The gite is very comfortable and the pool is a real bonus. We visited some great beaches, interesting towns and good restaurants whilst staying there.

“What a great place”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2014

A fantastic Gite in lovely grounds. Swimming pool was great and of immaculate quality. Loved the added extras such as the fenced off pool area, and the swings which was ideal for our son. There is a bigger Gite in the same grounds, but you really do feel it is nice and private. Would be a perfect destination for a larger group of friends or family . Really nice touch from the owners providing our son with a box of toys to keep him entertained. Without doubt would stay here again.

“Welcoming and comfortable base for exploring the Charente”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

A lovely place to stay with beautifully kept grounds and pool surrounded by fields of crops and sunflowers and the Charente River. The hosts Catherine and Terry were very welcoming and thoughtfully left bread, butter, milk and wine for our arrival. There is a small local campsite nearby where you can order croissants for breakfast and there is a supermarket a couple of minutes drive away. Our teenagers loved the wi-fi that allowed them to keep up with their friends but the peaceful village was a wonderful place to get away from it all for us. We used the gite to explore an area of France we hadn't visited before and it didn't disappoint.
