Had a fantastic 2 weeks in this lovely house.  Kids made good use of the pool!  Had lots of lovely days out and visited the local bar a few times; very friendly Gorgeous meal at the Creperie at Pissotte.
All had such a great time, we hope to return next year.  Family B

Once again, we had a really great holiday here.  Everything we needed was in the house and it was nice to have the pool cleaned regularly.  La Cousotte bar once again made us very welcome; even cooked a meal specially for the men when they returned from a football match in Niort at gone 11pm
