Quality B&B near Pons, Saintes and west coast beaches

ID: 510
When previous visitors to this great value B&B near Cognac and Pons (a lovely medieval town which you must visit) consistently rate it as 5 star, you know it has to be good!

Whether you are just passing through en route to your summer holiday in the SW of France or Spain (the B&B is just 10 minutes from the A10 autoroute from the NW Channel Ports to Bordeaux), want to spend a day at the beach (it's only 45 minutes to the Atlantic beaches at Royan) or just fancy a quiet walk in the vineyards or indeed a tasting session at the nearby Cognac Distillery, this B&B has to be your no. 1 choice.

Prepare to be thoroughly spoilt as your bubbly and energetic British hosts (and their lovely friendly dog) go above and beyond what you would expect from a bed and breakfast and succeed in providing an exceptional level of hospitality and warmth, not to mention exceptional home cooked food.

You will be welcomed with a drink of something chilled before being invited to relax in the gorgeous gardens, a peaceful haven in which to sit and soak up the sun. Inside, the house is beautifully and stylishly designed with many interesting and original features and it is beautifully decorated throughout.

The bedrooms have beautiful oak beams and are peaceful, cool places in which to rest after a long day. The beds are incredibly comfortable and they, along with the peaceful environment are sure to guarantee a good nights sleep.

Make sure you book dinner at this B&B, a delicious superior restaurant quality 4 course meal which is sure to be the highlight of your stay not only thanks to the quality of the fayre but also the fantastic house party kind of atmosphere in which it is taken.

Breakfast, taken in the garden when the weather permits, is also a delight with delicious yoghurt, fresh fruit, wonderful breads and croissants and Penny's home made preserves. During the day, feel free to take advantage of the complimentary tea and coffee making facilities which are available in the guests' lounge.

The B&B has free WiFi internet access and there is plenty of parking space outside.

We had a super stay at Penny and Adrian's B&B near Saintes, from the very warm welcome, lovely welcoming drinks and nibbles, very comfortable and immaculate room and fabulous evening meal and company. We really enjoyed it and would definitely return and recommend to others - the Hillerbys

Our stay at the B&B near Saintes was an amazing experience. They are both highly skilled hosts, attentive without being overbearing. The room was lovely and presented to a very high standard. We ate with Penny and Adrian on both nights and the food was wonderful. The whole experience was like having a meal with good friends, from the convivial chatter over aperitifs to the discussion and conversation throughout dinner. The food was superb and the drinks and wine (included) were excellent. The breakfast was equally lovely. Penny and Adrian provided lots of suggestions on where to go and what to do, and had useful maps etc to hand. We had a wonderful stay with them and will definitely go back. It is the sort of place where you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend - the Hennell James

We had a wonderful stay with Penny and Adrian at their B&B near Cognac who were delightful and attentive hosts. The breakfast was superb and please do tell them that my eldest son is now demanding the greek yoghurt / compote that Penny made on a daily basis for his breakfast! We have forwarded their details and your website to other friends who regularly make the same journey as us to SW France. - the Tuckers
