"fantastic for the family who like their creature comforts…"
We went last year (2012), we loved it so much we are going back again this year. This is a first for us, but the houses are decorated beautifully and so welll equipped for the modern family. The pool and garden is perfect for all of us and the owners/family couldnt be more welcoming. There are lots of places to visit locally, La Rochelle is an easy day trip. They also have these wonderful weekends for those of you wanting to turn your hand to some shabby chic restoration of your own, the couple who own it are quite a talent !Read moreLess

"We have stayed at the Gites for 4 years running…"
We have stayed at the Gites for 4 years running and each time have had an amazing holiday. Both gites are perfect - spacious, beautifully decorated, clean and very well equipped. The large walled garden is wonderful too - with plenty of space for running around, a climbing frame/swing set and a sandpit. Each gite has their own private garden area with wooden sun loungers, dining table and chairs. The heated pool is fenced off and kept spotlessly clean.<br>Sue and Simon, the friendly English owners, live on-site along with their two children and have thought of everything that contributes to having a relaxing holiday with children: the gites have children's toys, books, dvds, highchairs, cots, stairgates and buggys and lots pool and beach toys to use. Nothing is too much trouble and their local knowledge is invaluable. <br><br>Despite having spent 4 holidays here, we still have yet to see and do all that the local area has to offer and will be returning again this year! It has the perfect mix of beaches, towns, cities, villages and countryside all within a 45 minute drive. Our favourite activities have included day trips to the beautiful Ile de Re island, La Rochelle and Cognac; visiting local attractions such as a wonderful woodland zoo close by, local markets and of course just making the most of the lovely garden and pool. <br>We've yet to find a holiday home that betters the gites in Tout Y Faut.Read moreLess
