Beautiful, peaceful place.

  • 5 of 5

This little place was perfect for us. Beautifully kept house, pool and gardens in a very quiet location, secluded but really not too far from town for access to supermarkets, restaurants and so on. First time we had been to this area and we found there was a lot to explore locally, and bigger towns and cities about an hour away. We travelled a bit, but we were very happy to spend most of our time in and around the house. Robin and Amanda were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We would certainly like to go back here again, hopefully to stay longer next time.

The "Cosy, pet friendly cottage for 2" was all it said, both cosy and pet friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our relaxing stay as did Tapas our dog in the lovely enclosed garden. The cottage is beautiful and very well set out and the benefit of the log burner was ideal for cooler evenings. Amanda and Robin were great hosts and really helpful with lots of information for us as we were looking at this area for property. Amanda e-mailed directions for us to easily find the cottage, brilliant. The area is calm and relaxing and everything you need for your stay is only minutes away in Chef Boutonne. They are a really lovely and welcoming couple and we look forward to seeing them again.

This was our second visit to Le Petite Maison. Our first was 5 years ago and we have had lots of lovely holidays in-between. However this is the one and only venue that we have ever returned to. We love the peace and quiet here, the house is perfect for 2 and Amanda and Robin and the best hosts you could wish for. So friendly, helpful and accommodating. The cottage itself is clean, well aired and has everything you need. The kitchen also has basic larder items so you don't have to go out and spend a fortune buying everything that you only use a small fraction of during your stay. The pool area is clean, pretty, private and quiet. We occasionally bumped into Amanda cleaning the pool just as we arrived to use it. Amanda and Robin also told us about the village Hunters Lunch via email before we arrived and suggested they could reserve us tickets. This event happens once a year I believe and we were lucky enough to be there for it....what a treat. A truly French experience where they didn't scrimp on the pinot either...hic!! Apparently we were seen by neighbours bouncing off the hedges on our way back to the house at 7.30pm in the evening.

I cant thank Amanda and Robin enough for a truly amazing stay. We will return.
