The gardens are private and totally relaxing."

"From the beginning when you decide to concrete the quality of your holiday with staying at La Poste you will find the whole process seamless."

"An ideal retreat. It is beautifully presented with a super family size kitchen and a delightful garden for the children to play and explore in."

La Poste des Gardes:

"The house is absolutely gorgeous, well equipped and very clean; it catered easily for six adults and a baby.
We will definitely return."

"The house itself is in a quiet hamlet with only a few neighbours. You are surrounded by fields of corn and sunflowers. Idyllic!"

La Poste des Gardes:

"Perfect! Right from arriving it was relaxing. The house is comfortable, well equipped and the river terrace was definitely our favourite spot."

Longère Louise:

"Spectacular! A wonderful holiday meeting all my expectations and more. We achieved relaxtion - very rare for a mother of three!"

"Availles is wonderful to walk around - all sorts of loops and little tracks present themselves. The village is much larger than it first appears."

THE POITOU-CHARENTES REGION

The countryside of the Berry and neighbouring Poitou offer a region full of surprises. Their pretty villages are sleepy and ideal for walking or cycling tours. Friendly farming folk work their land, a patchwork quilt of fields of golden corn, sunflowers and maize. Dairy cattle and sheep graze in fields bordered by ancient oak and pine woods. The weather is warm in spring, often quite hot in summer with long golden days in autumn.

Lonely Planet's Best in Travel has listed Poitou-Charentes as one of the Top Ten Regions of the world to visit:

"What makes Poitou-Charentes so different from the rest of France is that it encapsulates the best of France in one small, easily digestible region. Put simply, Poitou-Charentes combines all the best clichés of the French countryside - the sleepy rural villages, the endless fields of sunflowers and the delicious food and drink - and this alone makes it different from every other region in the country."
 
"Much more laid back than the Med (but with almost as much sunshine) and ideally suited to family holidays, this is a place where you can slow the pace right down, settle in and indulge in the finer things life has to offer."
