We are well under way with the 2010 "season". I think our guests have been having good holidays as reviews received so far indicate! Thank you so much for taking the time to write them!
We spent a week at White Shutters in mid June. Our family consisted of 6 adults and 3 children aged 3, 1 and 6 months and we had a really wonderful holiday. The house is the best equipped I have ever stayed in, comfortable, beautiful with an enormous heated pool safely enclosed and there were enough toys, games, bicycles etc to keep everyone happy without any need to venture further. We did spend one day at the beach which was fun and explored nearby markets and countryside which by now must be stunning with field upon field of sunflowers and poppies. Helen arranged food for our arrival and made us most welcome. We would definitely recommend it to anyone with small children who needs a hassle-free haven.

Just a quick email to thank you. We had a great holiday at white shutters, weather was hot and sunny and we enjoyed the pool and sitting out late into the evening enjoying the peace and quiet. Dad and Andy enjoyed cycling round the local area and Mum and Paul went running each morning.Please note, there is now a bigger kitchen bin, and there are scales in the bottom drawer in the Bathroom next to the kitchen, I'm sorry you didn't find them and I hope no precious supplies had to be given to the douanes!
We were really lucky to see two tawny owl chicks fledge while we were there. There were nesting behind the brown shutter outside the poppy room window. We watched the adults feeding them and then finally just before we left they fledged. Dad got some video footage of each chick the next morning, they were lovely. The house was well equipped with lots of space for us all. We couldn't fault it really the only suggestion we had was possibly a bigger kitchen bin as we were emptying it a lot and possibly some bathroom scales to just check the weight of our cases before leaving - as Andy bought so many local goods and bottles I was trying to guess weights of cases as we only had 20kg limit.
We had a couple of lovely meals in Cognac and Aulnay and thoroughly enjoyed La Rochelle and the beach at Royan. It was by far the best property we have stayed at and we loved the area, the french locals were really friendly and the sunflowers came out just before we left.
Thank you again, Louise.
