What Past Guests Are Saying
A chance to totally unwind
Middle of nowhere, yet short drives to some fantastic places to visit. We wanted a holiday to switch off ,unwind and recharge our batteries, and thats exactly what we got from Le Chai. Lovely facilities in the gite, very helpful advice pre arrival from Lisa re route to take, visit to Saintes on the way down from La Rochelle airport, refreshments waiting for us on arrival, gite was a home from home, with glorious weather we enjoyed the pool area, and travelled around to some great places and beaches.

Wonderfully tranquil setting a must to holidaymakers
This was our first trip to France and we were really unsure what to expect. However, Lisa and Ian Elsey were very helpful via email from the first time we enquired about where to stay. This was reassuring. When we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel welcome. The gite was lovely. It was very clean and airy. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, iron and board even a hairdryer and alarm clock. As we arrived late in the evening we had not had time to shop and we were expecting to have to wait for a drink but found the fridge had milk, bottled water, coffee,tea and sugar. The only thing we had to buy was our food. The gite was very private and even had a bar-b-q area. The pool is lovely and very private. There is an area for outdoor games and all surrounded by beautiful countryside. We had the most lovely holiday. Lisa and Ian we quietly in the background on hand to advise us and answer any questions. They are a lovely friendly family and have helped us have a wonderful holiday. We cant recommend this enough. Try you won't be disappointed. Mr and Mrs Moat, West Sussex
Gite clean and comfortable and fully equipped for an enjoyable stay. It is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding region, with Bordeaux and its vineyards and La Rochelle being within an hour and a half, and numerous interesting places in between. Great to get 'home' after a long day's sightseeing to the absolute peace and tranquility of the countryside. The swimming pool would be an added bonus for young families.

Mr and Mrs Moy
Our stay in 'Le Chai'
A lovely peaceful location. Our hosts were very welcoming and were always available when we wanted to ask them anything. They even arranged a dentist for my husband as he was in so much pain we wer going to have to go back to England. The accommodation was lovely and spottlessly clean and they gave us a lovely welcome pack of essentials. We would definately stay here again.

Sue and Mark
A real chill out holiday
We had a 2 week chill out, Lisa and family made us feel very welcome, nothing was a problem, we chatted about why they chose the area to live in. They gave us information about the area, the pool was beautiful and was very welcome after a day out sightseeing. Can not fault anything, accomodation was excellent. Recommended for a quiet getting away from everything holiday.
A Roving Rustler
Comfortable gite, close to Jonzac, set in rolling countryside.
Despite staying in February the gite was snug. A car is essential since the gite is set in peaceful, rolling countryside but Bordeaux is easily accessible and must be visited.
Friendly, clean. Relaxing gite. Ideal for 2 peole.
Beaulieu sur Layon, 49750 France
A well equipped and comfortable gite
This gite was very well equipped, very comfortable. Mr. and Mrs. Elsey were very obliging and the position was very quiet. The weather was very warm especially for March, so we were able to sit out.
