We have just left this amazing family and gite after a long term winter stay of just over three months.

Alex and Serge and their daughters are the most hospitable, genuine and kind people you could meet.

They truly care about their guests,nothing is too much trouble, from a fabulous welcome pack to wood arriving for the log burner! (Obviously not needed in the summer!) a well kept pool and outdoor facilities, and advice re the local area, the beautiful coast, restaurants etc. Alex and Serge were even kind enough to arrange restaurant bookings, a visit to the Dr etc for us.

The gite is stunning, old, rustic with some gorgeous French features, fabulous exposed stone walls along side amazing character.

This is a home from home!

The attention to detail is carefully planned so you quite literally have everything at your fingertips - from a kitchen equipped for an experienced chef, a lovely walk in wet room, hot water on constant supply, to smaller details like adaptor plugs, Hoover, cleaning products and luxury linen and towels. The list could go on and on!

The house is immaculate and very well maintained. It's been well thought out and is warm and homely.

We would highly recommend a stay in this gite.

It's rural but has great facilities very close by. There are a number of restaurants in St.Genis (mins away from the gite) including a Creperie, traditional French restaurant, Pizza takeaway (for those nights where you're just too relaxed to cook) and a great truck stop where you can get a delicious French 3 course meal for less than €14. The waitresses are great and so welcoming!

There are local shops with everything you need. Your morning crosswinds are only a short drive away!!

Serge is an amazing chef,so if you're lucky enough and he's around, don't miss your chance to have a gourmet traditional French meal cooked by him. Thank you Serge, we were lucky on a number of occasions!

There is lots to do around and about including towns close by such as Saintes, Jonzac and Cognac. Bordeaux and St Emilion are less than an hour and well worth a visit. If you want to tour a vineyard or cognac house Alex and Serge will arrange it for you and it's well worth it.

The stunning coastline which can be reached in as little as 20 mins,includes small harbours with little restaurants, beautifully lit at night, to the larger and grand places like Royan which is home to the more exclusive French people who own beach front mansions.

What else can I say!!xx

The Winery in Jonzac

  • 5 of 5

Wow, The Winery in Jonzac was the perfect venue for our road trip around South West France.

As a mixed group we had everything we wanted from a pool, bbq facilites, great lounge, idilic setting and well furnished a comfortable place house with everything we wanted!!

Location was execellent - easy trips to St Emillion, Cognac and Bordeaux and for me lots of quality locals golf courses Cognac being the best!! We had Go Karting locally too......

The highlight was the 5 courses Chefs table Serge the owner created with his wife Alex, amaing food, great wine and company all for 45 euros a head!! This is NOT to be missed!!

A great trip and I would recommend the property to a family / families and a mixed group in their early 30's like us!! We had great holiday!!
