About Jane Harvey

We purchased Maison St Louis in 2015 and we are busy upgrading all of the complex, including a new pool area for 2016, which will see the pool area extended, surrounded by hand built gabion stone walls, a new separate children's pool for babies and toddlers.

Lee previously worked as a MD for an events company and Jane worked in the same company within the Christmas Lighting division.

Jane Harvey purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jane Harvey chose Passirac

We fell in love with the Old School House with its wonderful character and charm, it offers truly unique accommodation with generous room sizes, unrivalled outdoor area, beautiful pool area with large swimming pool and separate children's splash pool surrounded by hand built gabion stone walling, outdoor children's play area, indoor games room and communal BBQ Area all set withinin the beautiful countryside of South West France.

What makes this apartment unique

Our small family run gite complex nestled between Cognac vines and fields of sunflowers in the heart of the beautiful South Charente countryside.

We are perfectly located to offer a relaxing break for families of all sizes and because of our location, which benefits from a mico-climate which means we enjoy nearly as many hours of sunshine per year as the Cote d'Azur!

We have 3 gites, a wonderful large pool with diving area and separate splash pool perfect for toddlers and babies. Terraces for al-fresco dining, an outdoor play area for children, covered sandpit on our upper terrace and indoor games room, all within our acre of beautiful private grounds.

Excellent Hospitality, with a lovely secure garden

  • 4 of 5

We needed accommodation for a 3 day trip to surprise a friend on his 50th birthday and were recommended Le Campsis. Jane and Lee were very helpful and ensured our stay was hassle free and excellent. The rooms were large and clean with everything you could want, even basic provisions for breakfast had been supplied on request. Nothing was too much trouble for Jane and Lee and can't wait to return in the summer to see the finished pool and the games room in full swing, it's going to look stunning.

Pool closed. Informed without apology, 12 hrs before setting out on our journey from the UK. This was half empty and v green on arrival. Would have changed venue if given sufficient notice.

Approach roads completely dug up outside whole of property, making access near impossible and v noisy and dusty(not pre-warned, even though they have been on going for many weeks).

Bad directions and wrong phone number provided.

Made to feel extremely unwelcome by proprietors argumentative, rude (swearing) husband on arrival, who seemed intent on making us want to leave before we had even parked.

'Gite' of a poor standard. Peeling paintwork, rising damp, doors and windows that wouldn't close properly. Wi-fi not working despite prior assurance it was.

Dirty dusty curtains and crockery. Dodgy wiring. A real bodge up.

Roadworks right outside window early am.

We only stayed one night out of the eleven booked and pre-paid for, as it was too late to find somewhere else on the first day, and we had been travelling through the night to get there.

The owner came round as we were getting ready to leave the next day, stating that 'she wasn't comfortable having us there anyway ' thus confirming our decision to leave.

If we had been given proper notice of these issues, we could have cancelled and made alternative arrangements. Any kind of refund was refused.

There are loads of gites in this area, offering great facilities by nice friendly people, so find somewhere else!

Website refuse to mediate stating 'We are not involved in the rental transaction or management of a property; therefore, we are not able to mediate disputes between owners and travelers.'


You will be required to pay in full upfront, with no chance of any recompense if anything goes wrong or you are mislead about anything!

Owner's Response: We are extremely sorry that Mr and Mrs Wilkinson did not have the same experience as all of our other guests this year. We accept and understand some of the comments made regarding the pool, however this was fully communicated to them prior to their arrival. We are very excited with the 50,000 euro investment we have made to deliver the best pool complex providing a diving pool, large swimming pool and children's splash pool surrounded by over 300sqm of terracing. In addition we have rewired the entire complex and have had new gas fired central heating systems fitted throughout. We are also very excited by the significant improvements made to the roads and paths within our pretty village. Whilst we recognise that such works were a little disruptive our other guests did not mind in the least. The works are now complete and the village looks wonderful with new street lighting to compliment everything. We would like to thank the family who stayed in Campsis (the apartment the Wilkinson's stayed in) for their five star review and who vacated the property the day before their arrival. We also thank the many other guests who stayed with us this year for their wonderful comments especially from the family who enjoyed their ninth successive year here. Mr & Mrs Wilkinson were offered a full refund and we thank Home and Away for their support with this unfortunate situation. We sincerely hope that they found a place to enjoy their holiday in France and will visit this wonderful region again.

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour familial dans cette ancienne Ecole réaménagée.

  • 4 of 5

L'extérieur est très bien aménagé et la salle de jeux est très conviviale! Tout est présent pour passer un agréable séjour en famille.

Le seul petit bémol, il n'y a pas de volets😬

Les propriétaires sont très très sympas et accessibles. L'endroit est calme et le bourg de Passirac très mignon. Je le conseille🤗
