The house was very clean and well kept. All information was accurate. Our stay was very pleasant.
Our hosts David and Lorraine were absolute lovely! they made us feel really welcome on arrival and were really helpful during our stay recommending lots of places to visit.
The accommodation was ideal especially with children, situated in a charming and quite little village our son had a fabulous time enjoying the outdoors in a safe environment. Brilliant setting especially with young children!!! our daughter is 16 months and son is 5 years.
Lots to do and see around and all within easy driving reach. Lots of amazing beaches too!!!!
A massive thank you to the Tomlinson's for making our stay really comfortable and pleasant, and not forgetting your two daughters Isabel and Alen (forgive the spelling) who were really good with our kids - especially our son who thoroughly enjoyed playing with them.
Thank you very very much and hope to visit again in future!!!
L'appartement est bien, la déco sympa et surtout très très calme
Vous n'êtes pas loin de la rochelle ni du marais poitevin. A essayer
Un accueil chaleureux et en toute simplicité. Dommage pour nous de n'être resté qu'une seule nuit... Nous reviendrons pour ce bol de tranquillité...
Hôtes charmants, gîte tres fonctionnel et calme ( même avec petits en bas âge ).
Je recommande vivement.
Un super logis, des personnes sympathiques, une cuisine exceptionnelle et un accueil chaleureux. Tout bien, tout simplement.
Accueil sympathique de David. Environnement calme du gite avec un grand jardin
Welcomed with a cup of freshly made coffee and soft drinks on arrival which we enjoyed in the garden. Rooms clean and well presented. A third bed was put in one room to accommodate all 5 of us and it was still spacious. A good recommendation on where to eat in the town. The breakfast was excellent. All in all an excellent place to stay.
My family and I stayed for 2 nights in one of the two gites. David and Lorraine welcomed us very warmly when we arrived. The 2 houses are situated near the "big house", where David also gives cooking lessons. What we liked best was the big garden surrounding the houses, where you can sit, read, walk and eat, and where your children can play. Unfortunately, we did'n't tried one of Davids dinners, but I think we will next time! Thank you a lot David and Lorraine!
David and Lorraine made us feel very welcome. They are a lovely couple and were fab with our children. Their daughters are also very helpful and we did feel 'home from home'. David is a fantastic cook and we dined with the family twice; both meals were exceptional and very relaxing. The gite is well equipped (we had a young baby) and in a good spot for peace and quiet, but a good base for exploring the region.
One of our favourite places to holiday! We've stayed in the main house and the gites and all of them are wonderful. Lorraine, David and the girls are excellent hosts and they truly make you feel like long lost friends. The food is simply amazing and you can learn to cook it on one of the fabulous courses run by David. The house is set in beautiful countryside and provides a truly relaxing holiday that is enjoyed by the whole family. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Tomlins guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay. The family David, Lorraine and their two girls are very welcoming. The bedrooms are clean, bright and modern. The food is absolutely wonderful. Creative and imaginative it satisfies the most fussy vegetarians! We have spent two wonderful New Year's eves with David and Lorraine and family and their hospitality is excellent. Oh and breakfast - scrambled eggs to die for!
