Client feedback is hugely important to us and we strive to keep improving Les Pommiers each year. We have visitors books within our gites to enable guests to leave their helpful feedback and a selection of these comments are listed below. After relaunching our website, moving forward we would also welcome feedback on this page from our guests.

La Vigne

Our family of four adults and two young children spent a lovely week in La Vigne, situated in a beautiful location. Liz and Keith were excellent hosts, responding to any requests, but never intruding. The facilities at the gîte were excellent, and our boys really enjoyed the indoor pool, and the small play area. We would not hesitate in recommending the gîte to anyone looking for a holiday in this lovely part of France.

We arrived at Les Pommiers after spending a busy week in Normandy. Liz and Keith welcomed us and showed us around our gite, the indoor swimming pool, and the surrounding beautiful gardens.
We stayed in Les Marrons and it was a little gem. Ground floor lounge and kitchen. The kitchen was very well equipped in every aspect with washing machine and dishwasher, and the lounge very comfortable with TV. Two bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom. It was spotlessly clean and a joy to stay in.
We had a table and chairs outside to be able to enjoy the garden and although there were other gites, it felt very private.
I used the pool only once. It was warm and there were loungers that could also be taken outside on the patio.
We went to the markets in St Jean D'Angeley and the other in Rochefort. Both well worth a visit.
Le Clerc supermarket is only 20 minutes away and there is a local bakery in the next village to Ligueul where you can buy your bread and croissants.
Liz and Keith are exceptional hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They work very hard to make sure Les Pommiers such a delightful place to stay.

We returned from Les Pommiers in early August 2023. What can I say? To be honest I don’t want to praise it too highly as then it won’t be our secret paradise!!!
We had a wonderful time. Liz and Keith are fantastic hosts and really cannot do enough to help. My husband is in a wheelchair and Liz very kindly phoned a local restaurant to check it was wheelchair accessible and then booked it for us. She supplied us with fresh poached pears from her trees which were delicious our 14 year old grandson loved them!
The indoor pool was fantastic and enjoyed by all. There are games in the house, swings for younger guests, a badminton/ volley ball net and a table tennis table. The house, La Vigne, was just perfect for us and the wetroom was better than our one at home! Liz also arranged a rental hoist for us which was a great help.
One thing that really impressed me was the equipment in the gite, there was more than enough for the 8 of us. The area is so pretty with the beaches only 40 mins away.
Very highly recommended and it really is perfect for wheelchair users.

Just returned from a wonderful two weeks at La Grange. The gite is really well equipped and comfortable. Liz and Keith are lovely hosts and their story of Les Pommiers is fascinating. The pool was amazing and the story of how it was installed was incredible! We have never had such a relaxing holiday. There were plenty of places to visit in the area or just spend time in the garden watching the insects and birds. The little owl was especially lovely to see. It was simply perfect!

This was our first post-Covid holiday so hopes and expectations were very high. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed almost two weeks in La Grange and could not have been happier. The gite was spotlessly clean on our arrival and had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The indoor pool was very much appreciated in the hot weather. The area is quiet and peaceful and the countryside around is lovely. For shopping, St Jean D'Angely is not far away and we enjoyed several trips to the boulangerie in Landes which is even closer. Ligueueil is well situated for trips to the Ile d'Oleron, Rochefort and Fouras-les-Bains, Royan and La Rochelle. We even made it as far as St Emilion. Liz and Keith are experienced hosts and it shows in their attention to detail. They made us so welcome and could not have been kinder when I had a minor injury during the trip, ensuring that the holiday stayed on course. We ended our stay there feeling that we had had a proper break and hope very much to return before long. Thank you both!

What a fantastic location so very peaceful, the gite was lovely and the swimming pool a hit with all the family. Liz and Kieth were fantastic hosts always on hand for advice and a lovely chat. Lots to explore in the area for all the family to enjoy. A shame we have to go home tomorrow.

Claire Harvey, 

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour aux pommiers, dans le gite La Grange. Il est très confortable et il a toutes les commodités qu'il faut (lave linge, lave vaisselle etc.) Liz et Keith nous ont gentiment accueilli, ont donné de bons conseils pour visiter les alentours. Notre fille Automne et nous même avons beaucoup apprécié la piscine qui est très agréable, la température de l'eau était parfaite. Le site est un havre de paix, calme et reposant. Nous espérons pouvoir y revenir. Merci Liz & Keith. Famille Scalabre

This was one of my first holidays as a solo parent and I could not have been happier with the outcome! Mathilda (aged 3) was thrilled with the pool, the swings, slide and sandpit and it I loved seeing her running around enjoying the garden and the outside space. We also enjoyed picking the blackberries and plums with Liz and eating the homemade plum jam. Liz and Keith did everything to make us feel at home and gave a warm welcome to our visitors. With Les Pommiers as a base, we did daytrips to the zoo at Chizé and the beach at St George-de-Didonne and for the rest of the time we simply enjoyed being in the beautiful setting of the gîte. Highly recommended for families of all sizes - we hope to come again! Emily and Mathilda

Emily Robinson, 

Just spend a fantastic week in La Vigne and didn't want to leave. Such a peaceful setting. The pool was a great hit with us all and a bonus being indoors, no sunburn for the children and on cooler days it was nice and warm. Playground was a hit with the children too. We loved sitting outside int he evenings watching the bats and little owls flying around. Liz and Keith were perfect hosts, always available when needed with helpful advice and information. Will be back.

Jackie Edwards, 

Enjoyed a wonderful week in La Grange and La Vigne for my Nan's 80th. Excellent facilities, kids especially enjoyed the pool and play area. Great weather, almost too hot for walking around the towns and markets, wonderful holiday thank you.

Adams, Stone and Gutteridge Family, 

Lovely accommodation. Perfect for walking, running and cycling. Easy access to Rochefort, La Rochelle and Cognac etc. Loved seeing the Owls and Hoopoe bird. Pool made a difference during hot weather. Will be back! Merci!

Jim and Rona Kelly, 

A very comfortable & well equipped gite. Keith and Liz very hospitable, ask them about Pineau!
St Savinien is a lovely little place where you can hire electric boats, canoes etc with a lovely picnic area & childrens area. Palmyre Zoo at Royan is a must & a visit to the beach at St Palais sur mer is a buzzing little town. Our visit has been very pleasurable & would recommend to others.

Sowtens Family, 

Great holiday - kids loved pool, lovely hot weather, great french food, super days out at Zoo, Ile d'oleron beaches, Rochefort and Royan. Thanks Liz.


This visit was our third year running. Firstly thank you to Liz and Keith for the clean accommodation. La Grange is such a wonderful gite, with the offering of a lovely indoor pool. sometimes we do the same things year in/out, like going to feed the donkey in Lussand on our bicycles, through the peaceful farm tracks. The donkey then stamps its feet as we leave! We've discovered that the local farmer in Ligueuil will sell us unpasturised milk (still warm) from his cows. The children collect it themselves and love seeing the calves. The church on the way to Courant reminds us of simplicity in life that we sometimes miss.
St Jean d'Angely, Surgeres, Cognac, Saintes, Aulnay are lovely towns to visit. Kayaking in Coulon, school museum in Tout-y-faut, chateau in Dampierre-s-Boutonne are fond memories! Thank you again to Liz and Keith xxxx

Pater Family, 

Our sixth year at Les Pommiers and it gets better every year. Host Liz and Keith are unobtrusive but helpful when needed. Such an ideal location for many interesting tourist areas. We will no doubt be making further visits.

Janet and Graham Dobson, 

Just the place to come for quiet, comfortable relaxation. Beds make for great sleeps - hardly french!
We enjoyed cycling on the quiet roads through the feilds - thanks to Liz and Keith for a great setup + pool!!

John and Janet Eaton, 

An excellent two week stay - our 4th here and 2nd in La Grange - Very Peaceful and idyllic.
For those who haven't been before, places to visit include:-
Beaches excellent at Fouras, Chatelaillon Plage
Visits to La Rochelle, Royan, Cognac & Rochefort all worth the trip.

Patrick, Gill and John Neal, 

Have enjoyed a lovely restfull half-term break at La Grange. Many thanks to Liz and Keith for making us feel so welcome. Charlie has thoroughly enjoyed himself in the impressive indoor pool!

Andy, Sally & Charlie, 

We have stayed in many, but this gite proved to be perfection! We have a big electric wheelchair and a mobile hoist, and for the first time (away from home) we found the space to manoueve and transfer. The adaptions proved to be well thought out and effective. Thank you Liz and Keith.
