The hosts are very nice and the house itself is gracious. Tall ceilings and well proportioned rooms, with beautiful details like the tiles and ceiling medallions. The kitchen is well laid out and well stocked. Showers and bath have plenty of water pressure and very hot water. The village setting is great, especially with the river. Good walks right on your door and convenient to many places to explore.

A very beautiful, sympathetically updated house of character. this type of property has grandeur and all the little foibles and quirks of an old house. Creaky floors and original window fittings, some which open, some which might not. A three story house with an old winding wooden staircase, and wooden floors throughout, we did get a few splinters ! Modern bathrooms a plenty, and a good well equipped modern kitchen. Loads of bedroom and bathroom space, and lots of added things such as board games, fans, hairdryer etc. The lounge was lovely and looked out onto the river with a relaxed bright feel to it. Huge dining table great for a big family and sharing food. We must not forget the canoes, life jackets and large floats which were in the garage for our use. The girls had the best time playing in those. We loved our stay in this beautiful part of France and spent a lot of time either on, or in the river with the children. The owners were helpful and there when needed. Only one small thing would be to maybe invest in updating the garden area, and if there was a small deck with a way of accessing the river more easily from the garden it would have been perfect for us. Regardless, we loved our stay and will be back.

Lovely old French townhouse in pretty Saint Savinien. We had a relaxing time - swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding on the river. The house was perfect for us - the downstairs bedroom was cooler in the heat but the upstairs main bedroom is so pretty and the bath overlooking the river wonderful. We loved the riverside garden but wouldn’t have found it easy with younger children. Would also have benefited from some easier access to the river - a little jetty maybe. Small town perfect for our needs - boulangerie near the town bridge fantastic/ Bar barrage good for low key food. Île d’oleron has lovely beaches on west coast. All in all a great base for holiday. Thank you

L’endroit est superbe, la maison, très grande, très agréable, et bien décorée. Il ne manque rien pour que l’on passe un moment merveilleux dans cette endroit superbe . Une seule chose était regrettable: il n’était pas mentionné que 3 des chambres , se trouvaient au deuxième étage, or nous étions avec 3personnes qui avait dépassé les 80 ans et avaient par conséquent de grandes difficultés à accéder à ces pièces. Malgré ce petit inconvénient, nous garderons un excellent souvenir de ce séjour avec une seule envie: y revenir

We spent a week at this fabulous property and enjoyed every minute. It was a relaxing and tranquil setting. The garden leading to the river was amazing ,was just able to fish from the bank (caught a 22lb carp on sweet corn ) but be warned the mosquitos are ferocious, so a quality misquote spray is required But overall a fabulous experience and will be returning.
