Family from Belfast, United Kingdom Jul 2019

The cottage is beautiful set in stunning countryside with fields of sunflowers everywhere. A car is definitely required. We visited Cognac, La Rochelle and there was a gorgeous Chateau a short drive from the cottage.
Colleen and Keith were very helpful and kind and the cottage was equipped with everything we needed.
We would recommend Sunflower Cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing French holiday.

Family from Emsworth, United Kingdom Aug 2018

We had a lovely time in the cottage. It is very old and lovely. Everything you need is provided. The english hosts are very friendly and very helpful. The pool is bigger than we had expected. The area is the middle of nowhere, but with a car you can get to the supermarkets, into St Jean d'Angely and Loulay to get anything you need. We had a day trip to La Rochelle, about an hour's drive, which was a great day out. It was about 20 mins on the bikes (provided) to Loulay, and there is a forest across the road but we ran out of time so didn't explore that. We spent a lot of time chilling in the garden with the kids in the pool. It really was a lovely week, very relaxing, very sunny, very quiet. Recommend for sure.
