Vi är väldigt nöjda med lägenheten, omgivning och mycket bra mottagande från ägaren

  • 5 of 5

Rent, snyggt och bra utrustat.

Mycket bra för familj med barn då det finns pool, stora gräsytor för aktiviteter som fotboll, cykling, badminton mm.

Bra omhändertagande och information från ägaren. Tillgänglig hela tiden och trevliga arrangemang som välkomstdrink och barbequekväll.

Excellent place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was the third timethat we had stayed at the Gites and the second time in this property. We love it, it's very peaceful and the Hosts are very friendly and so helpful. We've done a mixture of self catering and eating out - recommendations always available from the owners. We have also appreciated the use of bikes available to guests and have explored the many paths through the vineyards. There is a bread van that comes every morning but local supermaarkets aren't far away but you do need a car. Can recommend the Remy Martin Cognac tour as an excellent trip out as well as the Chocolate factory where you can make your own. The Gites are very clean and comfortable with modern furniture and all you need for a holiday. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : at 50 Kilometres Car: necessary

Only 4 hours south west of Paris, 1 hour north of Bordeaux, and just one hour from La Rochelle airport. Perfectly situated for exploring the Atlantic coast region or historic towns of Saintes, Rochefort, Angouleme and of course Cognac. La Fournerie is surrounded by vineyards but yet only 10 minutes from Cognac town.
