This is our second visit to this stunning gite, the first visit with our young daughter and it was just perfect. The owners are extremely welcoming and accommodating. The gite itself is gorgeous, well maintained, always so clean and has everything you could think of and even the things you don’t. The private patio and garden is tranquil and very a beautiful space. It is the perfect escape from everyday life. The local villages have some lovely restaurants and beautiful beaches and rivers. A great day out. There is a supermarket just a short drive away. We absolutely love visiting this gite and haven’t considered any others as this has everything you need and the owners are such lovely people. We can not wait for our next visit.

This is a lovely, clean and well maintained gite, with everything you could possible need for a short stay. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome by the lovely owner, Morag who is very friendly and happy to advise on where to shop and eat etc. We were especially delighted with the lovely welcome hamper. The location of the gite is in beautiful and peaceful location and only a short walk to the river. You do need a car but the local town, Saintes is only a short drive and has lots of bars, shops etc. There are also some very nice restaurants in Port D’Envaux and can recommend Le Gabarier. Cognac, Royan etc all just a short drive or train journey (we went by train to Cognac). All in all can thoroughly recommend.

I arrived at this beautiful gite and was greeted by a lovely lady Morag. On arrival to the gite there was a wonderful welcome pack of wine, cheese, bread and many more extras. I came for a quiet holiday and that is just what I got. The surrounding gardens were immaculate, with beautiful flowers, and hanging baskets. There are plenty of sights to see not too far away, and shops close by. Or like me you can just relax and read with a glass or wine under the beautiful willow. I will definitely be back.

Gite was ok inside but owners tried to say we broke a 2 year old £25 wooden ikea patio chair which had been in constant use for 2 years at the gite and has to endure goodness knows how many ( and what size ) bottoms!! It just happened to give up and wobble when my (slim) husband sat on it! Never known anything like it to be charged (she withheld our deposit!) when something has clearly come to the end of its life! It wasn’t an immaculately maintained set by any stretch. And honestly I’d say pretty good going for 2 years constant use out of cheap ikea stuff! It is NOT the same as smashing a glass or plate or vase that doesn’t have a lifespan! ( which we have done before and overly overcompensated for. ) So ... if you choose to stay here you’d better pray that the washing machine / coffee machine / microwave or any of the other furniture doesn’t pack up while you’re there - through no fault of your own - as they won’t believe you and they WILL withhold your deposit!! I should add I think they took particular umbrage that we had (genuinely) forgotten to mention this chair but it was a 5 second incident out of a very busy week with 2 little kids and as it had just wobbled hubby quickly swapped for the spare and we ate our meal without investigating the chair closely. Now told the support bar had completely snapped. Hmmmn something fishy there me thinks! You have been warned! Also, lots of heaps of dog mess in grassy shared area which was supposed to be for our children (1 of them a crawling baby!). Not nice.

I was very surprised and disappointed to read this review. I thought the matter had been resolved via our emails. You admitted to accidentally breaking the chair. Your damage deposit WAS returned minus £25 for the chair. This is the first time I’ve had to keep any part of a damage deposit. There have been very few previous breakages but,those that have occurred were resolved amicably during the guests stay. I am at a loss as to how you found dog mess in your part of the garden as my dog was kept in a separate enclosed private garden for your entire stay. If this was the case why on earth didn’t you tell me, I would have seen to it immediately. I am very sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay , I work very hard to keep my bright modern gîte immaculate both inside and out and do my best to ensure that all my guests are happy. I believe my 10 previous reviews to be a true reflection of my gîte and myself.

This is the nicest gite I have stayed in, and I have stayed in a lot! Beautiful situation, immaculate interior and has everything you need. The owners make you feel very welcome, and provide a welcome hamper which was much appreciated. Will certainly return.

We spent a lovely week here. The gite was fabulously comfortable inside and out, as well as being thoughtfully decorated and equipped. Morag and Vince were excellent hosts - discreet yet available and caring. The surrounding area is a haven and a delight for nature lovers. Having spent many, many self-catering holidays in France, my husband and I both agree that this is definitely one of our very best. Ten out of ten!

Wow what a stunning gite the best we have stayed in around France. Spotless, easy to find things and has everything and more you could need. Morag goes over and above to make sure your stay is fabulous. A real home from home and the most comfy beds. We had an amazing week exploring the local area we will be back. Thanks again was a pleasure to stay with you.

What a find! Location 1: Charente Maritime is a beautiful area of France, far enough south to guarantee good weather but not so far as to be an endless drive and too damned hot in Summer. Location 2: the accommodation feels like it is in the middle of nowhere, yet is so close to Saintes (which is a gorgeous town) Port d'Envaux with its 'beach' and good restaurants, Taillebourg (more jumping in the warm waters of the Charentes, plus v good boulangerie and the exquisite Auberge des Glycines) - oh and a whacking great supermarket just minutes away. Location 3: ...as in French for 'rental'. Morag and 'Vince' have created a magical little gite in the grounds of their house; recently refurbed with more nice touches than space permits. Kayak and bikes available at no charge was just one example. Congrats guys, and thanks for making it such a magical stay. It is not 'if' we go back, but 'when'...

The gite was so lovely Morag and Vince had made sure that there was everything there that we needed, every little thing was thought of - such a lovely welcome pack - so no need to have to rush out and do a shop...so very thoughtful... Location - nice and quiet but so grateful to both Morag and Vince for all the little gems of places to visit and see. Loved St George De Didonne beach! Ruby (the dog) was an added bonus - so very friendly...

From the moment we arrived to Morag and Vince’s warm, friendly welcome, we knew that we had chosen well for our stay in the Charente Maritime. Set in the owners’ delightful garden, Jacinthe Des Bois is a real gem in every respect. The setting is a haven of peace and tranquillity – we loved our “outdoor lounge” under the beautiful willow tree and enjoyed watching and listening to the birdlife, whilst sipping a glass of wine or delicious Pineau! The cottage itself is bright, fresh and airy, prettily furnished, extremely well-equipped and is absolutely pristine, both inside and out. Morag and Vince have literally thought of everything to ensure a relaxing, comfortable and perfect stay for their guests - their attention to detail is second to none. We appreciated the generous range of welcome goodies on arrival – a huge help to start your holiday after a long journey. The cottage handbook was also beautifully organised and packed full of helpful tips and information on places to visit. A perfect base for visiting the many attractive towns, villages, châteaux, gardens, beaches, etc, that the area has to offer, Jacinthe Des Bois is ideally located for touring inland as well as within easy reach of the coast. The beautiful, historic town of Saintes is literally minutes away! All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful cottage and very definitely hope to return soon. Thank you so much, Morag and Vince – it was a pleasure to meet you both - you are the perfect hosts in every respect. Of course, we musn’t forget to mention your adorable dog, Ruby – we miss her padding over to see us! À la prochaine! Un grand merci!
