We had a lovely relaxing holiday,thank you.the house was great, well equipped, and we loved the space that it gave us especially as our kids are of an age where we need space from them at times!! the area is very picturesque.We have been further south on other trips, but actually prefer where Champigny is located.It's much greener with undulating views We did absolutely nothing for a week, apart from eat, drink ,and relax in the pool,it was superb.Went to Zoo second week ,but it was too hot so soon came back

Hi Jeff, The house was fantastic and we all had a great holiday.

Can't think of anything to improve on! Looking forward to arranging another visit as soon as possible.

Thanks David L

Hi Jeff
Thank you for your email.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Champigny, it really is a wonderful place and it is set in a lovely area.
The place was spotless when we arrived and we were well looked after by your agents, leaving bread and milk on arrival.
The pool was a godsend especially when the temperature became really hot during the week.
We really didn't want to go home at the end of the week, and would definitely recommend  Champigny to friends and hopefully return again in the future.
I have attached a picture of us all just before we left.
Best wishes
Paul and Julie


Hi Jeff

We all had a wonderful time at your house and the pool is
really lovely. The weather was great and we enjoyed the peace and
quiet and the wildlife.  It was a shame about our grandson, having to
have his appendix out but we were glad we were in France and not
somewhere like Turkey. It cost my son 72 euros which was very good

Thanks for everything.

Dear Jeff,

We had a great time at Champigny, yes it was relaxing for us which is what we wanted, quiet and in the countryside so we fully knew what we were expecting and nothing came as a surprise. The pool was the highlight for us and it was used every day except one, the lack of chlorine was a bonus and much appreciated. WiFi was a big help and we enjoyed the library. All in all we had a great time and appreciated the effort you have made for your guests .

Many thanks again for your hospitality.

 Hi Jeff

We all had a lovely time we went out most days visiting as much of the region as possible. We had two days that we spent round the pool and the house had plenty of space for us all to feel comfortable. It was also great being on one level for the elderly members of our party.

I would recommend your house to friends it was a perfect location with great facilities.

Many thanks





Dear Jeff,

We are back in at work after a wonderful couple of weeks in your house in France. I have never been to the Vendee region of France (we travel to France c. 2-3 weeks a year on wine tasting and Gite style holidays and normally head to the big wine regions) – and have to say I was rather taken with it. We also liked the book showing the works you have done, that is some project!

Morning Jeff,

We had a great time thanks,just as last time your house is fab!! 

My kids love your house (they think it’s ours – if only!), great facilities, great pool. Love the movies, books and toys for kids. The towels for the pool are great.

Can’t fault really.

Thanks again – I’m sure we will be checking 2014 dates very soon!



Dear Jeff

We all had a really lovely relaxing holiday and hardly left the pool. The weather was perfect and the pool was so amazing my 4 year old grandson learnt to swim in it. He was doing lengths unaided by the end of our second week. 

I think you have a great support team going as they were all lovely and really helpful.

Thank you very much for lending us your lovely house and I wish you and your family all the very best for the future.

kind regards



Hi Jeff,

I'm really sorry to have taken so long to get in touch with you and we had every intention on filling the visitors book but got our timings wrong on the ferry.

We can't thank you enough for letting Champigny to us and we were very impressed with the facilities and the kids had a great time playing around the garden and pool.

What a stunning spot and I'm sure we'll return soon.

Thanks again 


Hi Jeff We all had a lovely holiday. Very relaxing. It was lovely to sit on the veranda first thing in the morning and in the evening. We all enjoyed the pool and exploring your area .Your house is nicely  decorated and well looked after and very clean, and kids loved the big pool.  We enjoyed meals at the miners hotel, the creperie in the castle and the all you can eat chinese in fontenay le compte.

All in all a fabulous holiday, thank you.



We all thoroughly enjoyed Champigny I’m pleased to say.

 The house was very clean and welcoming, the bedrooms were very comfortable (even for those of us who are well over 6 feet tall) and the terrace at the back was probably the most used part of the house.

The pool is fantastic, as it is large enough to swim, lounge or play around in as the way it gets deep is just right for everyone – even non-swimmers can use it. The fact it was also heated meant we spent a lot of time in it as you never had to prepare yourself for the initial shock!

The barbecue was used a lot as it was very user friendly, in fact I am looking for one like that for my own garden now; if only I could also order the weather to match….

The wi-fi was particularly well received – especially by the younger members of the party!

Thank you for a wonderful holiday


 We spent a month in Jeff’s house, everything was great, house, garden and especially huge and beautiful swimming pool (11*7), there was all the equipment needed to spend a great holiday and it really was the case. Everything was perfect, thank you again and see you soon. Eva
