‘My husband and I absolutely love staying at this amazing little Gite. It is beautifully decorated, very well equipped & we loved the very generous welcome basket which was there on our arrival. Sue and Charlie are amazing hosts, welcoming and friendly, very informative and helpful about the area and nothing was too much trouble for them. The Gite is situated in a very quiet little hamlet surrounded by beautiful fields & cognac vines. Initially we thought it was too far from anywhere but once we had been there a few days we realised there were so many little towns and villages within a few minutes drive.
Thank you Sue and Charlie, we will definitely be back’.

‘What a fantastic gite in the most relaxing and beautiful setting. Sue and Charlie are very welcoming and helpful hosts and have made a fantastic job of renovating this lovely house. The facilities are excellent with a very well stocked kitchen. There is literally nothing that you would need that isn’t already there. The finishing touches are very high end and the gite feels like home away from home. The breakfast basket of homemade goodies is a must. Would highly recommend to anyone and can’t wait to visit again!’

‘What a gem of a find! This is the perfect place from which to explore the lovely Gironde estuary and the Charente Maritime area. The village and towns nearby are interesting and the sandy beaches of Royan a pleasant half an hour drive away. Sue and Charlie have created a stunning and beautiful Gite with garden and thought of every comfort to make a stay here relaxing and enjoyable. We hope to return!’

’Le Petit Saule has been the perfect escape; peaceful, everything we were looking for and more - a little paradise hidden amongst the sunflower fields! Tastefully decorated, luxuriously equiped and the kindest hosts. We hope to be back !!

Our stay at Le Petit Saule was wonderful, peaceful and very comfortable with everything you need on holiday provided. Sue and Charlie went the extra mile to be welcoming, helpful and kind. Nothing was too much trouble, the wine and carrot cake on arrival was very delicious and much appreciated. We enjoyed your company, Friday evenings were a treat. Thank you for a great time.

We had really good weather, Le Petit Saule is a comfortable, peaceful holiday home (you can’t call it a Gîte) - it is too well appointed to be a Gîte! Sue and Charlie were great hosts, we enjoyed Pineau , nibbles and homemade cake.
Dave and Jean August 2019
Sue and Charlie welcomed us very warmly. We felt at home. The apartment is nice and comfortable, we did not miss anything. It was a good and cozy starting point for great trips in the area. Special thanks for wine, delicious banana cake and homemade ginger chocolate.
Michaela and Volker August 2019
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Petit Saule , our first holiday as a family. Charlie and Sue were wonderful hosts and the Gîte is stunning and had everything we needed for us and our 1 year old . We enjoyed a few trips and then hanging out here in the sun and cooking meals. The little touches and homemade food items included in the hamper made the stay even more special . Thank you so much! We will be telling all our friends to come here! A perfect relaxing getaway so glad to have found you!

We enjoyed the gite and the very nice cake and wine. The surroundings are very beautiful and quiet. It is fine to come ‘home’ after a visit to a town in your little palace. We had a fantast time there. Thank you.
Caroline and Guinter August 2021

When choosing a gite you can never quite know until you arrive how close to the description it comes. Le Petit Saule actually exceeded expectations, with its tranquil setting, thoughtfully furnished rooms, immaculate bathroom and well equipped kitchen. This included wine, coffee blended by our hosts, and homemade lemon drizzle cake as extras! We came to relax, read, enjoy fresh French produce and take in the area. All were most splendid!
David and Linda August 2022
We have again been thoroughly blessed by our time here. We came in need of rest and refreshment and it more than fulfilled our needs. The gite and surroundings are amazing and Sue and Charlie are the perfect hosts. Every need thoughtfully provided for. We would recommend Le Petit Saule to anyone. We cant wait to return!
Derek and Anne May 2023
Le Petit Saule is the most perfect gîte to stay in. From it being immaculately spotless and exceptionally equipped, to the wonderful hospitality of your hosts Charlie & Sue, & the extra special touches of your welcome basket, local produce and homemade produce. It is the gîte to beat! The location also has much to offer and many lovely surprises. We will definitely be returning.
