Our two year old absolutely loved it here! The house is in a very rural and quiet location which suited us well. Janette was a brilliant host and we would highly recommend her cooking, restaurants don't open til 7 which was too late for is so Janette's meals were a great option. The house was well equipped and very clean, the selection of books and DVDs were an added bonus. There were plenty of toys both inside and out. Easy, pram-friendly walk to the nearest shop. As mentioned in other reviews, the stairs and floorboards are very creaky so we had to avoid going upstairs after our daughter was in bed. La palmyre zoo was about an hour away and we really recommend it. We also went to the beach which was 30-35 mins away. But our daughter was always happy to get back to the Wendy house!

The Maginnis Family, May 2017

A lovely gite with everything you need for a little one. Amazing gardens to explore and fun kids toys outside and inside. Our hosts were very welcoming and kind - we had a lovely peaceful week!

The Kelly Family, September 2016

We had a great stay at La Laiterie with our toddler and baby. There really was everything needed for our little ones which made packing so much easier! The accommodation and surroundings were lovely, especially the huge garden, our 2.5 year old had loads he could play with and on!! The owner can provide meals with notice, we kept her very busy as she cooked for us five times, it was such a treat. The only negative was the creaky floorboards upstairs and the stairs themselves, every step we took was extremely noisy, not ideal for light sleepers. Overall a great holiday. Thank you.

The Young Family, September 2016

The directions to our accommodation were good which made the end of a long journey hassle free. We had a nice surprise on arrival because the owner had left us homemade cake and biscuits, cheese, bread, butter and milk. We took advantage of the home-cooking service a few times during the week. It was amazing every time. The accommodation was clean and extremely well equipped. Our children (3 & 4) loved playing outside on the climbing frame and in the little wendy house. The gardens were beautiful. It was a shame we couldn't see the outside play equipment from the gite because it meant one of us had to go with them every time. It was also a bit unfortunate that the upstairs floor of the property was extremely creaky…it made it hard to get toddlers off to sleep and to stay asleep when you went up stairs. On our holiday we suffered a little from being too early in the season (June). Some of the local things to do didn't open until the French go on holiday in July. However, despite this we had some lovely days out (Palmyra Zoo, beaches around Royan and pool complex at Jonzac).

The John Family, June 2016

The upstairs flooring was incredibly creaky, liable to wake up everyone if you got out of bed at night. Otherwise it was a wonderful place to stay - great to have bikes to borrow for kids and adults, so many toys and a great outdoor space.

The Hartfield Family, 2015

Accommodation was lovely with great outdoor and indoor facilities for children.

The Banfil Family, 2015

Nothing to improve on - beautiful place, great hosts, nothing too much trouble - we'll be going back!!

The Allen Family, August 2014

It was our second visit to this property, it really does offer a special experience & the properties are well stocked, well situated & brilliantly hosted by Jeanette & the family.
