A very sylish property, lovely garden & easy access to La Rochelle.
This is a beautifully furnished house which is adorned with high quality paintings and artefacts. It is in a suburb of La Rochelle and most of the time it is very quiet. On the ground floor there is a very well equipped kitchen, a bedroom with en-suite and a dining area. The garden is a medium size, but is lovely, with an outdoor eating area that has a electric awning to keep the sun off if it is too hot. The pool is small but is perfect for cooling off in the hot weather. Upstairs there are two double rooms and a large bathroom.
There are two bikes provided and using these it is easy to get down to the sea at La Rochelle in about 10 to 15 minutes via the park, so one hardly has to go on the road. There is an Intermarche supermarket no more than 5 minutes walk away, which has everything you need. Best of all there is a very good quality Boulangerie nearby as well; just make sure you get there fairly early if you want croissants. Also, they aren't open on Wednesdays. Across the road from the Boulangerie is a Post Office which has a cash machine. The bus stop is a few minutes away and for 1.50 euros you can be in Place de Verdun in the heart of the city within 5 minutes - bus route 13. On one occasion we took a taxi from the centre of La Rochelle back to the house and it cost about 15 euros. (If you can't find a taxi go to the train station where there are plenty).
This is a fabulous property to base yourself in while exploring La Rochelle.
Beautiful house decorated with flare in a great quiet location perfect for seeing La Rochelle!
Lovely house that proved a perfect location for a family holiday. The house is decorated beautifully with a real sense of style. The garden is private and perfect for quiet time. The small pool is perfect to cool off and relax in. The location is a very quiet suburban street with a lovely bakers just 2 mins walk for the morning croissant and baguette run. Less than 2 miles from the centre of La Rochelle and a mere 20mins drive to Isle de Re it is a perfect location . On couple of points to note is that I would say you need a car (driveway parking provides) and given the nature of the furnishings in the house I would be concerned about very small children. Aside from this a lovely home and a perfect base for a holiday in La Rochelle. Definite 5 stars!!
Thank you very much and may be a next time with plaisur.
Gorgeous house, great location
We really enjoyed our stay - the garden and pool are lovely; nice quiet location but only 10 minutes by bike to the old port. Well equipped and comfortable, very stylish house.
Perfect French town holiday
I would agree with the previous review - perfect house, garden, pool and location. We stayed 2 weeks with our teenage daughters - and loved the location in the suburbs, but just 10 minutes cycle from the town centre. We only used the car twice to go to the Isle du Re - and put the bicycles on the roof rack. There was so much music going on - pop, jazz and classical all around the port area and local towns. There are cycle routes everywhere and the traffic is kind to cyclists (not like the UK!). The house might not be great for small kids, but was perfect for us: one bedroom ensuite on the ground floor, so we could go out to the market/ cafes early morning not disturbing the girls in their upstairs rooms; and great open plan living areas. We would DEFINITELY consider returning another year and would DEFINITELY recommend it to our friends.
Superb house, ideal location
A wonderful house, recently renovated inside and out. The owners obviously have a passion for design and have tastefully decorated and furnished the property. It is well equipped with a superb kitchen and clean modern feel throughout. The garden is delightful and the pool is ideal for a cooling dip on warm days, making it very comfortable to stay near the town. This property's location allows the best of both worlds as the medieval centre is close by while the house is situated in a peaceful and established French suburb which was right up our street! The is a fantastic bakery round the corner and a handy supermarket one minute on from there. The owners leave two bikes for visitors' use and we hired another two for our teenage daughters. We cycled every day/evening into the centre as there are plenty of safe cycle paths, including through the park which runs up through the town to the side of the centre. This property gives the opportunity not only to have a lovely holiday but to experience what it's like to live in a lovely part of France.
Tres belle maison
Confort et prestations de qualité dans un quartier tres calme ambiance village tout pres du coeur de la Rochelle.
Cependant on deplore que les propriétaires refusent de mettre a disposition un barbecue . Il nous a ete expliqué que cela peut gener les voisins si ce sont les locataires qui font un barbecue mais pas si ce sont les proprietaires de la maison!!!! Il suffirait d un barbecue electrique ou meme d une plancha. Nous n avions pas remarqué dans l annonce cette absence car cela nous paraissait evident qu une location haut de gamme aurait un barbecue.
De meme au niveau du linge de toilette 1 seule serviette par personne dont 2 qui etaient tres tres fines et assez petites. C est un peu dommage.
Enfin il serait judicieux de mettre a disposition une bache ou un volet pour la piscine le soir car elle n est pas chauffee et perd 2degres chaque nuit. Par temps mediocre comme nous avons eu pendant 2 semaines cela aurait aidé a la maintenir a une temperature agreable.
Au final cela reste un séjour agreable, la Rochelle est magique
Nous vous remercions de votre appréciation et sommes heureux que vous soyez globalement satisfaits de votre séjour à La Rochelle. Effectivement nous n utilisons nous même pas de barbecue et n en mettons pas à la disposition des locataires. En ce qui concerne la température de la piscine, elle est meteo-dépendante .Son petit volume d eau permet un réchauffement rapide par temps ensoleillé. Nous envisageons toutefois un chauffage de l eau pour la prochaine saison. Pour le linge de toilette, 6 serviettes de bain sont offertes par sejour et lave-linge et sèche linge sont
Nous vous souhaitons une agréable reprise.
