Quotes from recent visitors

Christmas/New Year

"We had a really relaxed time, got the wood burners on, we used loads of wood and did nothing. We split into two relaxed groups and took half of the property each. We each did half of the cooking and then brought everything together on the kitchen table in the Mill, served ourselves and all ate at the big table in the Mill. After that we just decided which game to play next. We took a murder mystery game and played the other games. We use the mountain bikes and spent one afternoon in the cafes overlooking the harbour at La Rochelle, but other than that we just relaxed and chilled out" [Visitors took Mill and Wheelhouse- which can be linked]


"The place is great. St Martin on Ile de Re is fantastic for food and the local bar did us proud. The pools and decking are really superb and the local wine tasting in Mareuil was excellent."


"We had a fantastic time at Thue - we all agreed it was our best holiday yet! The house was very comfortable with plenty of space for all 11 of us and had all the little 'extra's' that you only normally expect to find at home. The plastic plates and cups were a real bonus with six boisterous children, it certainly made mealtimes more relaxing! The pool was in constant use by both children and adults and we particularly loved the outdoor covered eating area which we made good use of both day and night. The bikes were great and we had lots of family bike rides locally. Thanks for the write up on the area which we found very useful, we visited many of the recommended places and had a great time. All in all a really enjoyable holiday home which we would thoroughly recommend to other families"

"We have returned from a wonderful two weeks at the mill. the house suited our three families perfectly and the weather was wonderful. we were also impressed by the area - we had not expected herminault (L'Hermenault) to have so many facilities. we used the pharmacy and doctor once while we were there and both were sorted within 5 minutes ! we had also not expected fontenay le compte to be so pretty and we spent a couple of lovely days and evenings there. it turned out to be the sort of holiday where we didn't have to travel far at all. we are looking at trying to arrange another booking for next year and will check out availability on your website"

"We had a lovely time in France, loved the country and the house (Wheelhouse) and especially the pool, went in it every day"


"We had a brilliant week, the wheelhouse was lovely. Ideal place for families with young children. We used the bar/restaurant in the next village (turn right at bottom of driveway, less than a mile) and the people there were really friendly. Weather was good too, bit too hot at some points for the fair skinned of our group! Anyway you've done a great job there, thanks again!

 We had a really super holiday. We enjoyed the rural setting. it's such a nice big place. No problems really, nice big kitchen and well equipped. The washing machine did sterling service and was on every day. Prices were very reasonable for the size"

"Puy de Fou is really excellent the weather was fantastic all three weeks bar one electrical storm at start of holiday"

"Futuroscope -we loved it. Sable's d'Olonne really nice clean and good facilities. Visited La Rochelle a couple of times. Need to make people aware that very first beaches on Ile de Re don't have best facilities so worth doing a mini tour first. The adventure park in Mervent was really good fun. We have two very active daughters who loved it."

"Yes, we had a lovely time at Thue thanks. It's in a good position for several places we went to (Puy Du Fou, Vouvant, Parc Floral, Fontenay etc) and is in a lovely spot itself. Many thanks."


"Loved the space. Really well equipped, especially liked the coolboxes, buckets, spades and bikes that made it all a lot easier"

"Went to Parc D'Oleron and Puy de Fou which are both excellent.

"Quick to get there. We flew to Nantes from Gatwick via Aviance(? Air France's low cost airline) for £73 each. Excellent value for money, no problems there at all. We were five adults and three children so worked well"

"Would recommend to anyone. Pool was excellent"


"We v. much enjoyed returning to Thue. - last time '02 - nice to see the developments and glad that the Owls have not been dispossessed! I would like to provisionally book the Mill again for 26th May and 2nd June 2006"


"The Wheelhouse was appreciated by all the family and yes we did manage to take a dip in the pool, the decking is a lovely plus"

"We enjoyed the peace and beautiful surroundings"

"L'Hermenault is certainly a lovely spot and we liked the unspoilt feel of the village. The Proxi store was indeed very well stocked and the staff were friendly and helpful"

"The Wheelhouse was very well equipped and the dishwasher was a real boon with all of us eating at home every evening. The bedding was lovely, nice to have quality cotton duvet covers and pillowcases. The cooker was super and the quickness of the gas hob great to use. The amount of crockery and cutlery was generous and the patio plates and beakers ideal for our grandchild to use"

"We all enjoyed the Pierre Brun park on the Sunday and have some footage of the whole family on the large swingboat. A lot of laughing and shrieks of ' no higher'. The trampolines were much enjoyed by the big boys. We didn't get the chance to try the funny bikes which was a shame"

"Worth noting was the go-karting at Fontenay-le-Comte. This was thoroughly enjoyed by all the males on the trip. They had a really good time even if it was fairly short lived and I think a bit expensive. I gather the track and the racing is much more exciting than any they have tried around our area"

"We went to La Rochelle and were impressed with the little bit we did see. We all went to the Aquarium which was certainly worth a visit"

"I hope that you will be happy for me to pass your accommodation details on to some of our friends. We would recommend the accommodation as being 'quality and quiet'"
