Calm and relaxing family venue
We had a wonderfully stay. Everything we needed had been thought of and our hosts were on hand to deal with any queries. The accommodation really suited our needs and the shaded gardens and pool provided a relaxing setting for our holiday. Local shops made it easy to stock up on essentials and we were close enough to explore La Rochelle and Ile de Re. A very pleasurable break.
One of the most perfect relaxing holidays ever!
When we arrived at La Bergerie it was just so perfect in such a beautiful setting. Exactly as described, it was exceptionally maintained to the highest standard with good quality and beautiful bedding. We arrived much later than expected but this was not a problem for the owner Catherine who met us. The property had everything you would ever need to make our stay very comfortable. The pool and surrounds were spotless with more than enough comfortable loungers for everyone. We would certainly recommend this property to friends and relatives and indeed intend to go back. The pretty town of Saintes was a joy with lots to see and visit with a choice of good restaurants for lunch and dinner. Lovely countryside for walking and cycling. Our only disappointment is that we had to leave!
After several years of trips to Cornwall and 'easy' package holidays with our young children we decided they were old enough to cope with the drive to this part of France - I only wish we had done it years ago! Not only was the drive much quicker than I remembered but La Petite Bergerie made it the extra special holiday that I was hoping for. It's a beautifully restored and exquisitely (but also very practically) furnished property that we instantly felt at home in: large comfy sofa, large dishwasher, masses of seating inside and out etc. Every inch of the property was spotlessly clean and the bottle of wine / welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated.
The gite was larger than I expected and the outdoor area was stunning and had plenty of shade for hot days. The play area was a plus for my children (8 and 11) who made friends with the little girl staying at 'L'Olivier' next door and had a lovely time playing and swimming together. Having said that, the other property is very private and you wouldn't have to socialise -but I'm sure we will return in future and try to book both properties at the same time with friends or relatives so that we can take full advantage of the set up with the two properties.
The surrounding area is varied, interesting and attractive. I was seduced by Port D'envaux - our boat trip was a highlight. Shopping in Saintes was a guilty pleasure, and for the kids the bouncy castles/mini boating lake at St Savinien were a bonus. A similar park area in the UK would be overrun and unpleasant, whereas here you have space, clean facilities and the tranquillity you rarely get with any kind of kids' activities at home.
Although the weather was not as hot as expected for this time of year I actually found it perfect and we managed to eat outside / BBQ most evenings. We only stayed for one week as we moved further inland for the second week, however, I could have quite easily wiled away a fortnight - just lovely. Catherine was an excellent host - friendly yet completely professional. She brought us some home-grown goodies one evening, and has been a pleasure to deal with.
La Petite Bergerie was absolutely gorgeous.
La Petite Bergerie was absolutely gorgeous. We loved everything about the property and location. Catherine and Terry have thought of everything to make your holiday stay perfect. The pool and gardens are such a pleasure also.
We visited so many lovely places locally and out to the coast, which is so worthwhile and not too far a drive. Bordeaux is a fantastic city with so much to see and do.
We would highly recommend the property and the area of the Charente region.

Stilecht auf dem Land entspannen
Wir verbrachten unseren Sommerurlaub mit zwei Familien in der Petit Bergerie. Alle waren begeistert vom Ambiente des Hauses. Die Bilder geben das Innere wahrheitsgemäß wieder. Alles ist sauber und die Ausstattung ist mehr als zufriedenstellend! Außerdem ist genügend Platz für zwei Familien im Haus vorhanden. Dadurch, dass es zwei vollständige getrennte Bäder gibt, kommt es beim Duschen zu keinen Engpässen.
Die Außenanlage ist gepflegt und großzügig. Daher bekommt man von den Nachbarn im anderen Haus nicht viel mit. Vor dem Haus befindet sich eine schöne, große Holzbank-Garnitur. Man sitzt dort sehr schön. Wir haben die Mahlzeiten vor unserem Haus immer genossen! Der Pool ist schön gelegen und bietet das ideale Ambiente, um sich perfekt zu entspannen. Es sind ausreichend bequeme Liegen vorhanden. Der Pool ist etwa 10m lang.
Der Ort Crazannes ist sehr klein und beschaulich. Immerhin kann man dort seine Brötchen kaufen. In der Umgebung gibt es viel zu unternehmen. Besonders gut hat uns Saintes gefallen. Der Ort ist nur 15 Minuten entfernt und wirklich sehr schön. Außerdem können wir La Rochelle und eine Fahrradtour auf der Il-de-Re empfehlen.
Insgesamt der perfekte Ort, um zu entspannen.
Beautiful property and grounds. Perfect for a fami
The property was absolutely lovely and exceeded expectations. It was fully equipped and the play area outside was an added bonus in keeping our two year old entertained. Catherine and her family were extremely accommodating when we needed an earlier check in and went out of their way to ensure everything was ready. Fab property.
L'Olivier et la Petite Bergerie sont situés dans le joli petit village de Crazannes. Dans le village, il y a un boucher, un boulanger, une poste et un petit bar restaurant. C'est à 5 min de marche de la Charente et les châteaux de Crazannes et de Panloy à Port Envaux sont accessibles à pied. A 15 min de route de Saintes et de son marché. Les magasins et les restaurants ne sont vraiment pas loin. Le port le plus proche est St Malo, à 4 heures et demie de route. L'aéroport le plus proche est La Rochelle à 45 minutes. Il y aussi l'aéroport de Bordeaux à 1 heure 1/2 de route.
