About Emma and David Barton

.

Emma and David Barton purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Emma and David Barton chose World

We are within easy reach of La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Fontenay-le-Comte, Vendee beaches, the forest of Mervent and one of the most beautiful villages in France, Vouvant.

The area is filled with canals and therefore very flat perfect for cycling, walking or even just taking a picnic down by the river. There is also a local bus service from Vix to La Rochelle which will take you through some of the local villages and providing a lovely afternoon's adventure.

Vix also offers two local award winning wine producers with wine tasting available.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Shared heated swimming pool, private patio area with a charcoal BBQ, own access.

Original features in the apartment with exposed stone and beams.

Own private access, English TV and WIFI throughout the apartment/gite

A lovely stay in a superb house

  • 5 of 5

Emma and David are great hosts who did everything possible to make our stay totally memorable. Both of them are also fantastic cooks, so meals were as good as anything you might hope for in France. In addition their house is very comfortable with all modern amenities, yet blends completely with the local environment - wonderful!

A fantastic B&B facility

  • 5 of 5

Two nights in a beautifully restored, spacious old property. We were looked after royally by our hosts, Emma and David. They could not have done more to ensure our comfort and enjoyment, including serving up delicious food (and wine!). Didn't get a chance to use pool, but it looked first class

Beautiful house, great hospitality and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay with Emma and David and it keeps on getting better. We had a fantastic holiday in their beautiful modern and immaculate house.

Nothing is too much trouble and they are the perfect hosts - there if you need them but not in the way. They always make us feel very welcome and the kids love them both! We even enjoyed fresh veg from the garden.

The area has plenty to do if you want to get out, without being too busy. Worth a visit - Puy du Fou, Futuroscope and Parc Pierre du Brune. We spent a good week of our fortnight just relaxing by the pool however - bliss.

Thank you Emma and David for another great stay - I am sure we will be back!
