Date of stay: June 13, 2015
Wir haben etwas über eine Woche in diesem Haus verbracht und wären gerne noch länger geblieben. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig am Ortsrand von Niort und hat alle Anehmlichkeiten, die man sich wünschen kann: super bequeme Betten, ein sauberes helles Bad, voll eingerichtete Küche und großes, sehr helles Wohnzimmer und Esszimmer. Wir haben nichts vermisst. Auch das Internet funktionierte einwandfrei und sehr schnell. Das ganze Haus ist neu renoviert, sauber und gepflegt. Das gilt auch für den Garten - einfach wunderschön. Die Vermieterin ist überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit mit guten Tipps. Für Ausflüge in die Umgebung, ins Marais Poitevin, nach La Rochelle etc. ist das Haus bestens geeignet. Und der Stadtkern ist nah genug, damit man abends noch in Niort essen oder einfach nur in einem der vielen Cafés etwas trinken kann. Ein Auto ist unbedingt erforderlich, dann sind die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten von Aldi über den Supermarkt bis zum Bäcker in ein paar Minuten erreichbar. Von uns eine 100% Empfehlung, es gibt absolut nichts zu beanstanden.

Relaxation and Well-Being
After a busy day of activities or excursions, it's time to enjoy the pleasure of a well- deserved rest, to relax and unwind.
The sun-loungers and deck-chairs are waiting just for you, whether it be in the garden sun or on the shady patio...a tranquil moment for reading, chatting or even just for listening to the birds sing or the grass grow. Doing nothing, relaxing and taking time to be lazy are all pleasures which can be enjoyed without limits at the Maison de Chantemerle.
The more courageous can eliminate toxins in the infra-red sauna and thse who prefer the spa can enjoy a massage to the soothing sound of lapping water heated to 35°
The message is, this is a STRESS FREE ZONE.
