We had a wonderful 2 weeks in the Martell gite.  Jacky and Neville were wonderful hosts - always available to offer help and advice.  L'Ancienne Distillerie is a lovely place and we made ample use of the pool, barbecue pits and games room.  It is also an ideal base to explore the Cognac region and get to see some amazing sights, smells and sounds.  Thank you.

Another fantastic time.  Counting down the days until next time.  See you next year


A very relaxing venue, well appointed in beautiful well kept grounds and pleasant and helpful hosts.

Beautiful settings, beautiful gite, site to die for.  Fantastic stay. Everything clean and tidy.  Jacky and Neville always willing to help.

A wonderful relaxing week in fabulous surroundings enjoyed by all from 10 months up.  Highlights were the fabulous pool and games room, great cycles, exploring wonderful villages and some truly great french food

Best equipped gite ever in our experience.  Thank you for your help and for making it a good trip

A Lovely relaxing time with so much thought put into our stay, From booking restaurants and visits to providing us with so much info.  The children loved the bikes, pool, table tennis as well as the swings - fab



I knew I wanted to come back the moment I arrived!

Dear Jacky and Neville just a note to say thank you for a most fantastic holiday.  I cannot think of anything which you could do to improve the entire experience for the holidaymaker.  Your place is superb, your help, your friendship, the facilities and your centralised location all add up to that perfect holiday.  It will the top of our recommendations to anyone planning a holiday in the Cognac area.


Thank you for a wonderful holiday, your hospitality and kindness.  To have all the family together has been so very precious to us all, having the space for all 12 of us to enjoy time together was perfect
