Guestbook comments from the owner
Another enjoyable holiday at Logis de Tertre. It was great having both gites this year ! Our eldest learnt to swim here this year so we are very happy. Thanks for being so tolerant of all our water inflatables and for being so thoughful in proving a paddling pool for the babies.
From the Owner
“Despite all the advice we were given about not buying the first house we saw, we immediately fell in love with Logis de Tertre the moment we saw it. The similarities with Christina's parents Welsh cottage were amazing and with that in mind we eventually decided to name the gites after 'Trisant' the village they lived in and 'Bronwain' the name of their cottage. Our career backgrounds in architecture and construction enabled us to see past the dilapidated condition and the potential that the property offered. Many would have found the task daunting, but with a good local architect and artisans we were able to complete the major renovations and create our two gites in six months. Our rural location of peace and quiet ideal has easy access to the Autoroutes or La Rochelle airport.”
