5 stars = Superb Accesible Gites

Reviewer: Laura Cleere from Manchester, England


We had a wonderful stay. The gite is excellent in all respects, so spacious for wheelchairs,Chris and Bev the hosts couldnt do enough to make our stay totally relaxing and problem free. A self propelled shower chair is provided in each gite, which meant we didnt need to bring ours, saving valuable space in the car meaning we could fit more wine in the car for the trip home. Also Chris and Bev can arrange to hire Hoists and hospital beds that worked out very reasonable. The area around the gites are very flat, lovely sunflower fields and quiet country lanes. The market town of Lezay is around a mile away and makes for a very pleasent walk. It is a great base to explore this part of France, with La Rochelle, Saintes,Cognac all easily accessible. We will definately be coming back to these gites again.
