Everything else was perfect. Stephan the host was extremely amiable. He is a Parisian who had been converted to country life many years previously when he bought this farmhouse.circa 1795. He .had converted outhouses to 3 cottages named Ile D'Oléron, Ile De Ré and Ile d'Aix. Very picturesque surrounded by lovely rolling hillside.. Stephan has made the conversions with loving care and retained the character. We stayed on Ile d'Aix the smallest of the.cottages with spacious sleeping and dining area and separate bathroom. French doors opened to a shaded patio and beyond that was a lovely swimming pool maintained at a constant 75F temperature. The room was equipped with crockery, cutlery, microwave and coffee and teamaking facilities. Complimentary figs and a jar of preserve from the farm were also provided, a nice touch. Stephan could not have been more welcoming. This was a little piece of heaven, quite unique and only 40 mins South of La Rochelle. Our cottage was perfect for a couple and had character that no hotel could ever compete with. The larger cottages would suit families as children could roam and play in perfect safety. A delicious breakfast (small extra fee) fresh bread from the village, delicious cakes, warmed figs and yogurt and fresh coffee completed our stay I must make a return visit and stay.longer.

Can be tricky to spot the farm name plate in the dark A light to illuminate it would be helpful for late night arrivals.
We enjoyed so much the romantic breakfast in the morning with a variety of delightfull homemade sweets (cake, Juice, jam and more). The sun was shining, we were the only guests at this moment so we received Vannessa´s full attention and she pampered us with fresh coffee and hot chocolate. The location is situated in a vaste area of argriculture land with no noise beside the birds which woke us up in the morning. Unfortuantely we could only stay one night... Parking was safe inside the walls.
As I am 1,91 (slightly overweighted :-) and my wife 1,70 the bed was a bit too small for us, but this issue we encountered mostly everywhere in France (King Seize beds are not very commun).
