House is beautiful, although we hardly spent any time inside. Beautiful furniture and comfy clean beds. Pool and patio used all the time. Great garden for Eric (the dog) to play and shelter from the sun. We had a lovely relaxing time. Accommodation extremely well stocked. Will be back for sure, also Annette was lovely & helpful too!
* the only negative (sorry) is patio floor - this could be nicer. Concrete is not a good look.
In reply: the patio has now been changed from concrete to a paved terrace! Much nicer!

I really enjoyed my stay and mostly enjoyed the Wii. My friend Stanley enjoyed playing Lego Star Wars. We used the paints and it was very fun. I wish we'd had more time to enjoy the really comfy beds. The surrounding towns were really fun to visit, and I feel as though it were my second home. My personal favourite game on the Wii was Carnival.
Your holiday cottage gets an infinite number of stars from me! Also, the pool was brilliant and my three year old friend, Patrick, learnt how to jump in! Thank you for everything. PS: we had a very warm welcome. Tristan, aged 10.

Lovely house – we’ve all had a wonderful holiday. The pool was well used!! Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful home.
Nieve, Age 11. Rutland. August 2017
The Cornflowers was great! The pool was refreshing and really nice. The house was spacious and felt like home. We went to the Puy du Fou and that was great – a ‘Must do’ day. La Tranche is a recommendation from us as well. I thought the garden was beautiful too. It has been a great holiday. Thank you Cornflowers!
The Cockmans & friends. Burbage. August 2017
Pool well used as weather was beautiful. House comfortable – some of the comfiest beds we’ve slept in in France.
Puy du Fou an hour away – stunning – worth the long day. La Rochelle – lovely for an evening, as is the L’Aubraie restaurant only 10 minutes away – river setting.
All in all – Fab 2 weeks.
The Whalen Family, Elsmere. August 2017
The Cornflowers is nice and it is beautiful and magical. We love the house. We spend most of our time by the pool and if anybody is reading this that’s new!
The Cornflowers is magical because there’s a fairy garden and last year we came here because all of the Whalen’s love cornflowers!
We had a lovely time at La Rochelle and the weather was ☺️
Thank you very much – Annette, you’re the best!

A wonderful 2 weeks. The weather has been kind to us. Loved the O’Gliss Water Park and the pedalos on the river. Kids have enjoyed it so much we have booked to return next year!
Amazing – we loved the Ile de Ré and La Rochelle too. Thanks for a lovely 2 weeks.
Mary Roberts, Grendon. July 2017
We have had such a wonderful girls holiday. What a perfect place to stay and so comfortable. It really is a beautiful holiday home. We have so enjoyed our days by the pool but equally enjoyed our days out to the Ile de Ré, Luçon and the beach.
Food has been delicious, rooms comfortable – what more can we say – perfect. We’ll be back!
Simone Dussleby, Yorkshire. July 2017
I have fallen in love with The Cornflowers. Everything one could ask for. Lazy afternoons spent by the pool, local area to walk. Luçon market provided some fabulous artisan foods and two great day trips to La Tranche and the Ile de Ré – so worth a visit!
Jodie Redden, Northamptonshire. July 2017
Lovely lazy week spent in this beautiful house with great friends. Food sourced from the market at Luçon and a fabulous meal out at St Cyr en Talmondais. Visit to the Ile de Ré – hired bikes and relaxed in the town’s many restaurants! Will be back again.
Kirsten Knight, Northumberland. July 2017
Such a beautiful house with so much care, thought and imagination put into the décor and furnishings. Everything was perfect! Luçon market provided delicious lunches and suppers, excellent local wines and cheeses. Cycled at the ile de Ré, visited La Tranche sur Mer and enjoyed fields of sunflowers. Our time lazing around the pool and sitting in the sun was fabulous! See you again soon Cornflowers!
The Maidment Family, Bedford. June 2017
We have had a really lovely holiday. Weather & pool were perfect for the first week; low temperatures and rain during the second week, but this dd not stop the fun.
Particularly enjoyed Sunday market at La Faute sur Mer, La Rochelle and the Ile Noirmoutier (Splendid Friday Market)
House comfortable, found everything that we needed.
Thank you for a great time, we loved the house & saw the Hoopoe in our first week!
