Beautiful home and location. Perfect holiday!

  • 5 sur 5

We booked this property as our first family holiday to France. Communication from the start was easy, and Lindsey was quick to respond with valuable information about the house and area, which was really useful. The house was very well equipped and exactly as described. It had everything we needed and more. It really is a beautiful home, and felt very warm and welcoming. The nice touches like the wine on arrival and toy gifts for our kids (3 &7) did well to settle my travel nerves.

The property was spotlessly clean and is well looked after and maintained. You really feel like you are stepping into a well loved home, rather than a holiday let.

The house is set in a small hamlet of houses, which feel so rural and secluded, perfect for a bit of peace and quiet. We met the immediate French neighbours (Pauline and Denis), who were really friendly and helpful.

The house is perfectly situated for visits around the charente maritime area. We visted St Savinien and the kids loved the park and boating lake. We spent an afternoon in Saintes and took a boat ride up the river, we went to Il d'Oleron and took the petite train castle tour, and had a lovely lunch in the port area. We also visted St Jean D-Angley, and all enjoyed the local market. We tried not to do too much, as the point of our holiday was a little rest and relaxation, but our days pretty much consisted of morning pool time at the house, with an afternoon vist, then more pool time on our return.

The house really is idyllic, and gives you a flavour of French rural life. The distant sound of the cows and chickens from the farm, together with the beautiful starry skies will always be a special memory. It was perfect for taking some time out together as a family, slowing down, and reconnecting. Thank you so much. Nina and family. xx

Top up your happiness

  • 5 sur 5

The charming Joie de Vivre is a fantastic antidote for a stressful life and will top up your happiness levels if you're feeling fragile. I took my recently diagnosed diabetic brother and he says this holiday was one of the things that gave him the confidence to carry on living life to the full. We flew from Southampton and hired a car - it was simple. The short drive, ending in a snake through the beautiful French farmland, adding to the magic of this heavenly hideaway. The house is gorgeous; full of character, beautifully clean and with every thing you need. To begin with we stayed close by, using the bicycles for lovely rides along the river and buying the local pastries. We also spent lazy days by the pool, listening to the birds. There are good supermarkets close by so we were able to take advantage of the french food without much effort. When we did venture out it was well worth it. We visited local beaches and took a trip to Cognac. This was a gorgeous holiday. You really can do as much or as little as you fancy. It's a perfect little enclave and there is no-one who couldn't benefit from staying here. We will definitely be topping up our happy levels with another trip over and celebrating our Joie de Vivre. Cheers!

Lovely House and Location

  • 5 sur 5

Lovely house, tastefully decorated, homely and comfortable. I went for peace and quiet and got it! Loved the local area too and St Jean d'Angely is a lovely medievil town with market, restaurants, shops and of historical interests too. Broadband in the house allowed me to work - technology is good sometimes! But most of the time I just chilled, watering the plants and herbs, taking advantage of the pook, as well as watching the birds, and in particular the Little Owl in the roof - fascinating. Thank you Lindsey and Peter for allowing me to enjoy your little corner of France.

Wow What a Lovely House!

  • 5 sur 5

We had a fantastic two weeks at Joie de Vivre!

The house was clean and so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. The setting is lovely for peace and quiet and a bit of wildlife spotting. The pool was very welcome on hot days and the neighbours very friendly and helpful.

We loved the local town, Saint Jean D'Angeley with it's lovely old town and restaurants but also the convenience of supermarkets on the outskirts.

Lindse , the owner, could not have been more helpful and thorough with her advice and her communication was second to none!

We will definitely be making a return trip to this gorgeous house in the future!

Wonderful little house!!!!

  • 4 sur 5

En septembre 2014, c'était pour la deuxième fois, que nous avons passé quatre semaines de vacances dans une petite maison de caractère charentais, près de la Boutonne, entre des exploitations agricoles.

La maison - bien rénovée et modernisée avec de bon goût -retrouvé à la campagne dans une commune de moins de 300 habitants, près de Saint Jean d'Angely.

Un escalier en bois mène au premier étage; dans le jardin il y'a une piscine privée constamment chauffée.

Les aimable propriétaires anglais s'occupent tout de suite de toutes les questions qui peuvent se pose pendant du semaines de vacance.

L'endroit et un point idéal de départ pour visiter de villes comme Saintes, La Rochelle, Angoulême, Bordeaux et les îles de Ré et d'Orleron.

Thanks to Lindsey and Peter-les aimables propriétaires!!!!!
