review 10 Oct 2011

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Strolling among green rolling hills, along country streams and through tiny French hamlets, the feeling of being miles away from city stress; surrounded by butterflies, birdsong and wildflowers. A wonderfully calming and tranquil vacation rather than an "exciting" one. Should also mention the great hospitality shown by our hosts, delicious home cooked food and generous introductions to local wines and brandies!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If you are looking for somewhere really secluded to unwind and relax with good food, wine and a bit of activity (walking and cycling) then this place is hard to beat. The scenery is beautiful in a gentle pastoral way and the pace is slow so it's not a vacation for thrill seekers.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, the hosts work hard to support the environment and local community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A lovely relaxing time.

review 24 Aug 2010

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Peace and quiet, being the only guest and able to swim, relax outside by the pool at my leisure. Walking great (nice having routes mapped out which you could follow/adapt without too much effort) in tranquil countryside. Picnic day a nice touch - the family met me on my walk bringing the food and wine with them! Lovely environment, attractive/clean accommodation and I enjoyed having the full-board (hostess a very good cook, host generous with the drinks!).

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Fine if you are alone; felt very safe walking locally. Hardly any traffic on the roads. Neighbours friendly - it's useful to be able to speak French of course. Dinner guests are invited occasionally and you are included. Would also be fun if there were other vacationmakers or you came with someone, I'm sure, because the family are friendly and like a convivial atmosphere especially at table. You can borrow books; towels changed mid-week and post cards provided for you to send a message home. It was good being picked up from the train station at Niort and dropped back there again at the end - Peter was very organised & it meant there were no buses or taxis to worry about.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Don't think there was any wind/solar energy; a log fire in winter I think; some recycling. Because I walked/took the train/got lifts when the family were doing other things on the same trip I feel I did quite well on the transport. The enterprise seems well-integrated in the locality and had regional products for sale; used local/French produce. Some employment created. If you were driving around or cycling further afield you'd be able to spend more money in the community than I did perhaps - only the occasional bar on my walks, no shops though I did spend in Niort.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

As I hadn't been abroad for some time this was an excellent way to begin traveling again because of the six days in one place - didn't have to do a lot of planning myself, no hassle and I could really wind down and relax. I used the opportunity to stay over in Lille for a couple of nights so fitted in a town/city break too. I hadn't spent any time in Lille or the region where the accommodation is situated & I appreciated going somewhere new. Excellent to be back in France generally, so on the whole a success and one of the best vacations I've enjoyed thank-you.
