Gite parfait pour des vacances au calme et au vert
Le gite est bien équipé (cuisine, literie, extérieur). Le jardin et la terrasse ombragée sont vraiment appréciables. La grande piscine (partagée avec un seul autre gite) est également entourée de verdure ce qui en fait un lieu vraiment plaisant. Les propriétaires sont discrets mais toujours à l'écoute en cas de besoin. Bref, notre famille a passé de belles vacances ! Petit bémol pour la connexion internet moyenne.

Peaceful and relaxing
L,Olivier was very sweet but extremely spacious and spotless inside with all the conveniences you need. The pool is lovely and just a few strides from the Gite. I would definately recommend this to anyone as its not too far from beaches and La. Rochelle. The iWiFi could be better but it was ok, other than that it was totally perfect.

A well equipped gite in a beautiful part of France.
We were met on arrival by Terry and Catherine who made us feel immediately welcome. They showed us around the gite which was first class and left a lovely welcome gift. The area is ideal for exploring and not too far from La Rochelle, Cognac and Rochefort. The bonus for myself was the sky TV which was showing the World Cup during our stay! Highly recommend this accomodation.

Lovely gite in rural location
A beautifully appointed and very well equipped gite - a real home from home - in a very quiet location. The rural setting offered peace and tranquillity but both the nearest village and slightly larger town are only a short car drive or bike ride away. The garden is large and quite private. There is also a pool which looked very well maintained and inviting but unfortunately inclement weather prevented our using it. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful in recommending local restaurants and facilities. All in all a lovely holiday and we hope to return soon.

Perfect peace and relaxation
We spent a very much needed week's holiday at this beautiful gite. Our hosts Terry and Catherine met us on arrival and although always on hand if needed, they were not intrusive. Welcome goodies and a bottle of wine meant our holiday got off to a good start. The gite lived up to the beautiful photos and there is everything you could need for a romantic and relaxing break. The gardens are private for both gites and the private pool is just a hop away from both gites too. A sanctuary of peace and tranquillity with as little or as much as you choose to do.....the decision is yours! Thank you Terry and Catherine and we hope to see you both again.

Lovely Gite in perfect location
We have just enjoyed a fantastic week at L'Olivier. The Gite has everything you need and is very comfortable. The gardens are lovely and very private (despite sharing the grounds with another gite), with lots of outdoor seating provided . The pool was fabulous and enjoyed greatly by our children. The gite is in a perfect location with access to many local villages and towns within just 15 minutes drive and even more within a 45 minutes distance. Catherine and her family were perfect hosts making sure we had everything we needed but leaving us to peacefully enjoy our holiday.

Charming gite in a magical setting
On arrival received a warm welcome from our hosts, the gite was immaculately prepared, , with every accessory you would need. The property is located in an picturesque unspoilt village and situated in well maintained mature gardens, with access to a lovely pool and seating areas . Secure parking is provided on site. The uncongested roads provided easy access to La Rochelle and Angouleme. Will be back.

We had a great family holiday in this superb property
We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday in this great property and location. Catherine & Terry were fantastic hosts and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The property was spacious, comfortable with great furnishings and everything we needed for the children (ages 5 & 6) including a night light in their bedroom. The pool was great, it was very clean and well maintained with plenty of space/chairs/sun loungers. The children made full use of the pool and the gardens which meant we could just sit back and relax! The property is in a nice rural location but there are towns and cities within easy reach if needed. We would definitely recommend the hosts and the property.

Fantastic Gite in a wonderful location
We have just spent a fantastic fortnight at this gorgeous gite! The gite is well equipped and extremely clean! We wanted for nothing! Outside there is a lovely private garden as well as a communal garden with swings, a playhouse and a sandpit which our 3 year old enjoyed. The pool area is as immaculate as the gite and due to lots of sunshine we were able to spend many hours there! The location of the gite is perfect too as we were able to visit La Rochelle, Cognac, Saintes as well as enjoy the local beaches. Lots to do all within a 50 minute drive! Catherine and Terry were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them!! We would definitely recommend this gite as it is the best we have stayed in!

About the neighbourhood
Originally a barn this beautifully converted, detached gite, has it's own private garden area, sitting amongst trees on the edge of the charming village of Crazannes, just a 5 minute walk from the River Charente. Just a 10 minute walk is the Chateau de Crazannes, built during the 14th and 15th centuries, the listed Château de Crazannes has been entirely restored and furbished. It is known as the 'Castle of Puss in Boots' because it was owned by the real Marquis of Carabas during the 17th century !! There is also the the Quarry of Crazannes ( les carrieres de Crazannes) which was a working quarry until the 1950's, it's beautiful white stone exported all over the world - rumor has it that it was used for the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York! An hour's tour will transport you back to the times when all was quarried by hand as you wander this amazing quarry. Also a pleasant walk is the Chateau de Ponloy at Port d'Envaux this was rebuilt in 1770 on the foundations of a former Renaissance-style castle, Panloy offers an example of the architecture of Louis XV. At Port d'Envaux you can find a small market every Thursday morning, there is also a wonderful bakery and a couple of restaurants. If you are feeling energetic here you can hire canoes and pedalos in the summer.
