Good market in Niort - fresh fruit veg and meat. St Jean d'Angeley worth a visit. Ile de Re also worth a visit but very busy on a sunny bank holiday! We plan to come back!
  • Roz & Keith wrote:  Valentine Cottage is an absolute gem! Niky & David told us everything we needed to know for a wonderful stay and we felt at home immediately. We visited La Rochelle, Coulon and Niort but due to the weather being so gloriously hot we felt it our duty to relax by the beautiful pool quite a lot - it's a hard life! We are determined to return to the beautiful little village of Usseau and Valentine Cottage as soon as possible. Thank you Niky & David for a perfect holiday.

  • Josephine & Stephen wrote:  Our first visit to the cottage has been a very relaxed time. David & Niky have been excellent hosts. Close enough to be great company without being imposing. Full of local knowledge and fun to be with. Gite everything you would wish for, lovely pool and gardens. Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven - hope to come back soon.
