Recommendations from Trip Advisor for these Holiday Cottages near Cognac
Just back from an amazing 2 weeks at these magnificent holiday cottages. Fabulous, well equipped gite, great pool, amazing BBQs, great and knowledgable hosts, made to feel very welcome. Recommend visiting Angouleme, Cognac and Le Chateau de la Roche Courbon. Highly recommend this place for a great, relaxing and welcoming family holiday!!
Arriving at these holiday cottages at Louzignac in the Charente Maritime
area of South West France was like stepping into heaven, especially as we had
been bitterly disappointed with our previous Gite in the area. That's why
these personal reviews are so important.
Sally and Peter make sure your stay at their small Gite complex is a joy from beginning to end. Entering the grounds, the first thing you notice is the beautiful well cared for garden with brightly coloured plants everywhere. This leads on to the main house and first Gite.
The lovely exteriors of the Gites have been painted in the traditional Charente manner, and you can see Sally's loving touch evident in
the scrupulously clean interiors, where the traditional white walls and wooden
beams have been complimented by the new (but traditional style) furniture. The
bathrooms are immaculate with lovely modern showers and crisp clean ceramics. The kitchens are fully fitted out with everything you could possibly need
(they now even have my oyster knife!).
The heated pool, with plenty of sun loungers, is a joy to use, and is especially suited to children. In fact my son took his first unaided strokes there. Near the pool is the barbecue area where Peter weaves his magic, but is available for all to use. The Gite we stayed in is one of two that look over the giant Bamboo grove. There is a lovely patio area and lawn outside where one can have breakfast and an evening meal while
looking at the magical Bamboos. Sally is always available without being obtrusive, which is just the right balance one needs to relax with. My wife and children had a
beautiful time there and we look forward to returning. The prices are unbelievably great value for a three star Gite. You have a great holiday there, you won't be disappointed.
We have stayed annually at this accommodation since August 2006 either in the main house or in one of the three gites. Set in a beautiful area of the country with vines wherever you turn we always look forward with anticipation to returning to La Maison. Sally and Peter's hospitality is second to none; the welcome is always warm. The gites are well equipped and if staying at the main house you are treated like an old friend. For teenagers the pool and sunbeds are invaluable. You are guaranteed an enjoyable stay at this property.
We have had the pleasure of staying with Sally and Peter on two occasions. We were a group of three families so had all three Gites to ourselves. The setting is fantastic, the houses spotless and superby equipped. The gardens and pool area are simply fantastic, plenty of room for the badminton court, cricket pitch etc etc. The pool is great made even more so as we have been blessed with great weather on both holidays. There is a nice bbq area which we made good use of and on the one day of rain we had it was straight into the hot tub... now that can't be bad. Although by night you have to travel out a little bit to as Louzignac is very quiet, within a few miles you can find a really nice Pizza Restaurant a lakeside restaurant which is in a pleasant location. We had a few lovely evenings eating out in Cognac, pavement dining great food and wine and a spot of people watching.. spot on! Sally and Peter are also fantastic people who make you feel very welcome are very helpful and available without ever being intrusive. In fact when you don't see them pottering around the gardens the kids really missed them. Daniel came home Peter's number one fan, although I bet Peter may not miss his daily interogation by our 4 year old! The only down side is the place is so perfect, it is such a wrench to actually leave and do something in the day other than enjoy it!
