We stayed for a month in this lovely Gite near Port D'Envaux, travelling from Australia and it did not disappoint. The owners Morag and Vincent were very helpful but not intrusive. The Gite was very clean and beautifully decorated and the outside area under the trees with Ruby the dog as an occasional visitor was very restful. The area has lots to offer, near Saintes a biggish town with all the history and restaurants you need, as it a short drive to the coast, la Rochelle or Congac. For one week of our stay relatives joined us as well and it was still private enough. Very happy to recommend this lovely Gite.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jacinthe des Bois. Morag and Vince were both great hosts and really endeavoured to ensure that we had everything we needed so that the holiday was as relaxing as possible. The welcome basket on arrival was particularly useful!
The cottage itself has been fitted out to the highest standard, with all the amenities that you'd need. The barbecue area was great for relaxing during the long evenings.
The location is great for accessing much of the surrounding sights and areas of interest. The beach at Royan is lovely and is only about 30 minutes away. Saintes has all the amenities you might need, and some great historic Roman sights. Plus the bigger cities of La Rochelle and Bordeaux aren't too far by road.
We would definitely recommend the cottage for others vying for a chilled out break in a beautiful part of France. Hope to be back soon!
I stayed in a gite at this location 23 - 26 April 2016 the gites has recently been renovated and is absolutely fantastic it was so comfortable and could be used all year round the location is very tranquil and relaxing but within easy distance there is so much to do and see for both adults and children to cater for lazy days, sightseeing, walking, cycling the beaches are amazing and so safe for children. The is also a huge variety of places to eat and drink it was a wonderful few days I will definitely be going again and recommending it to everyone
