Martha Hartridge from Guildford,
Thank you for a wonderful stay - the boys have loved every minute of their time at La Mirabelle and have explored every inch of the fantastic garden. The meals and birthday cake have been delicious and the distillery tour very tasty! For future visitors, we have found the beaches at Suzac and St Sordelin perfect for little ones. The Chateau des Enigmes is a great morning diversion and the frequent trips cycling to Champagnolles for croissants and baguettes a great way to start the day;
Melissa Spiro from Reading,
As soon as Sam (5 yrs) walked in he loved the ball tent, games and teddies. Thank you for a great week and the cake, wine and cheese which perfect for our first night after a long drive. We really enjoyed the beaches at Royan, and your garden;
Thank you Janette for everything, especially the Cognac tour - I am looking forward to opening it when back in the UK and having fond memories of this area.
Felicity Wray from Teesside,
Thank you for the most wonderful holiday. The gite is absolutely beautiful and the grounds too. Your homemade cooking was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed it - especially the clafoutis. We loved it when Koushy came by to say hello. The whole complex is perfect, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place.
Claire Wray from Sevenoaks,
After much deliberation on our family holiday (first one with kids) we are really happy to have stayed here. We could have spent every day in the garden with your brill paddling pool!
Everyone here was really friendly. Definitely recommend a curry on the last night. Dexter will miss Koushy!
Katie Taylor from Glenrothes,
Thanks for the lovely stay in this peaceful gite. The boys loved running around the gardens, playing on the slide and "cooking" in the wendy house.
Had some great days out including
St Palais sur Mer - nice sheltered family beach
Chateau des enigmes - unique, bizarre experience
La Rochelle - the museum of scale models is ideal for car obsessed boys!
La Palmyre Zoo - exactly what it says on the tin!
Saintes and Cognac - beautiful old towns for cafes and wandering
We also loved the home- cooked meals.
