Our second year to visit the lovely farmhouse near Matha and can’t fault it. Wonderful countryside, peace and quiet but still enough to keep both children, 7 and 9, occupied.
Extremely well equipped to a high standard with a good sized pool and always well used table tennis table. Definitely recommend.Grayson Finch
Had a wonderful two weeks at the farmhouse, set in a hamlet not far from Matha. It provided the perfect place for our family holiday. A great size pool, well fenced along with an enclosed garden meant the little terrors could tear around outside without coming to any harm (or escaping). The countryside around is pleasant for walking or cycling and the field of sunflowers adjacent to the property bought a welcome smile with a morning coffee on the patio.
A good range of attractions are well within an hours drive – so there is plenty of entertainment to keep the kids happy should the weather not be ideal. A wide range of markets and vineyards are nearby along with the local moustardarie. The local doctor also speaks english which was an unwanted benefit.David Faith
Following our stay in the gîte last year (situated on the same property) we not only returned, but brought friends with us!
This beautiful farmhouse is second to none with ample space for everyone and excellent facilities including those for cooking and bbq. We brought 4 teenagers, ranging from 12-17 years and all were occupied on the days that we stayed at the property – splashing in the pool, competing at table tennis, badminton and cricket as well as trampolining! Other activities on offer included bikes in a range of sizes to suit all ages. The owners ensured that we had everything that we needed and the property was well-maintained by friendly people who live locally.
The farmhouse is situated in a rural location amid fields of vineyards and sunflowers – stunning! You do need a car to get around – local towns of Saintes, St Jean D’Angely and Cognac are all around 30 minutes away and well worth a visit. Beaches are about 50 minutes away and are lifeguarded with some beautiful bays and long stretches of sand, depending on which you visit.
We would thoroughly recommend this for a holiday and hope that if you choose to visit you enjoy it as much as we have!Janet King
Delightful location, surrounded by sunflowers, house and huge grounds well maintained. We rented both properties for 10 days. We spent a lot of time in the fabulous pool and dinning in the garden. The owners were very attentive to make sure we had a happy stay. Would stay there again, definitely.Lynn Gallacher
The property is super. Well maintained with everything needed to keep the family occupied – pool, table tennis, snooker, films. Set in the glorious french countryside with numerous walks on quiet country tracks and lanes. If you wish to explore further, Cognac, La Rochelle and Oradour-sur-Glane all within 1.5 hrs car journey with typical french markets just 30 mins away. I would definitely recommend and will be visiting again!
