This is a really wonderful house - great garden, lots of space, full of history and with everything you need. We spent a week in Marennes and really enjoyed it. Perfect for big families with or without children. Many bike trails, nice beaches, restaurants and interesting places to visit. We met with Christine on arrival and she had arranged everything for us even some refreshments in the fridge. For families - this house has lots of toys, baby call, baby chair, bed, even a bike trailer with helmet. We would love to come back:)

So much to say, I don’t know where to start… Christine’s and Olivier’s house is a little paradise. All of us fell in love for this old house so charming and so spadeful. We had plenty of space for 10 people. The distribution of the rooms allows an easy way of life and independence for the guests wishing it. The furniture and decoration amazing, very delicate and special to us who are keen on ancient style. The garden is wonderful, with many little secret corners full of various flower species, where you could enjoy a glass of local wine reading a book (so many novels and comics in the house! mainly in french). It is right in the center, you can walk to the open air food market three times a week. You can park the car in the street adjacent to the garden. The nicest beaches are at 15 minutes driving, and you can easily reach them riding the bikes that the owner lends. The restaurants at walking or biking distance in the little town of Marennes offer delicious food. Christine is the most helpful host, offering all the time you need to share her advice and indications. She let us arrive at the time most convenient to us. We really wish we could spend holidays in her wonderful house again… Thank you so much Christine, from all of us !

The house is large and filled with books and games. The garden is nearly a 100 meters long and populated with beautiful flowers and plants, punctuated by several lovely sitting areas. Christine and Olivier were very communicative and helpful, and made the visit very enjoyable.

La maison de Christine et Olivier était idéale pour nos vacances familiales ( 12 personnes ). La maison est vaste, accueillante et pleine de charme. Le jardin est également très joli et très agréable. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié d'y trouver tout le nécessaire ( vélos, jeux pour enfants, ustensiles de cuisine... )

Notre métier d'archéologues nous a amenés tous les deux à beaucoup voyager surtout en Europe, Orient et Asie Centrale et sommes très habitués à recevoir des amis étrangers, de cultures diverses. Nous avons des liens familiaux avec la Pologne, la Norvège, la Suède et l'Angleterre. Nous apprécions les relations simples, attentionnées et basées sur la confiance réciproque. Nous aimons faire la cuisine, les huîtres, le vin et le cognac, la musique (classique et musique du monde), les livres, les balades à vélo, le jardinage............

Our profession,archaeologists, led us both to travel a lot, mostly in Europe, the Middle-East And Central Asia and we are thus used to welcoming foreign friends from different cultures. We have family links with Poland, Norway, Sweden and Great Britain. We appreciate simple relationships based on mutual trust. We like cooking, oysters, wine and cognac, books, music, bike trips, garden.....
