December 2020 –  A helpful note on testimonials for the curious website visitor: 
Le Logis de Luxe has been operating since summer 2015, our first year (we only began advertising in April 2015) when we had a grand total of 8 weeks (across all gites) booked.  Every year since then our bookings have increased, often through word of mouth.  This particular year has been, as for many in the tourist industry, very quiet indeed for us – but in one respect, also very instructive. 
By March 2020, we had a total of 21 weeks booked by twelve  different parties for the 2020 spring/summer season at Le Logis.  Due to the pandemic, three of those parties had to cancel outright, and a further three have postponed to 2021.  The remaining six parties were able to enjoy their planned holiday with us.  However, the point we would really like to make is that of those twelve parties, only three (4 weeks of bookings) were new guests – the other nine parties have all stayed with us before, and some amongst them have been coming for several years now, and have booked to return again in 2021.  This is the reason why we no longer have many testimonials to post on the website – we cannot ask our returning guests to keep giving us reviews!! 
We hope this is helpful to those of you visiting our website for the first time. 
Kind regards,
Fiona and Eugene
Hope you are both well.  We stayed with you in July 2017, had a lovely holiday and i’m just enquiring as to whether your property “Ville” for two is available from 13 July 2019?

What a wonderful place you have here at Le Logis!  We liked it very much, especially the hammam and jacuzzi indoor area!  We hope to see you again when we will be in France!

We just wanted to say thank you again for a wonderful two weeks – we had a lovely time and we are already looking forward to our next trip to France to see where we want to move to.  Many thanks.

Thank you both so much for a wonderful week at Le Logis.  It was very relaxing for us all, particularly after our very stressful year, and the twins very much appreciated not being annoyed by “irritating small children” around the swimming pool!  We will definitely be back!

My wife, 2 grown up daughters and I spent 9 days at Le Logis de Luxe in August. Everything about our visit was wonderful. Fiona was very helpful and accommodating in making the initial reservation and even booking local restaurants for us. The location was idyllic, and the facilities were superb. The gite was very well equipped for self catering, which is not always the case. There is plenty to do and see in the local area, and overall the holiday met all of our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending it, and look forward to going back in the future.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Ville and didn’t want to leave!! We have been fortunate to stay in many different types of accommodation, but we both agree that Ville is by far the best. You have thought of everything that a guest could need or want and we are sure that if you could control the weather, you would!! We had not visited the Charente before, but we both fell in love with it! We are missing the boulangerie and our breakfasts by the river.
We wanted to thank you once again for the warm welcome that we both received and for providing us with the perfect holiday accommodation. We have told lots of our friends about it! We hope to return to Le Logis in the future.

We would like to thank you for a completely peaceful and relaxing experience when we stayed in Dompierre this May – you made us so welcome.  Our gite “Campagne” was outstanding and you had included everything we could possibly need.  All the facilities were wonderful – even though we did not get around to using the indoor pool – but we shall when we return in September!  What wonderful gardens you have (not to mention Caspar and the rest of the menagerie) – you were both so welcoming and very helpful.  We can’t wait to return in September!

I have finally got time to thank Eugene and yourself for our great week at Le Logis.  Colin and I have not had a chance to relax like that for over 12 months so it was great to just “mooch” about.  We have recommended Le Logis to a number of our friends that we think would enjoy the same experience.  Colin says he would like to drool over Eugene’s cars the next time we come to stay, and I will enjoy further spa treatments, so we definitely will be back.

It’s a sad day here in the place we have called home for a week as we pack our bags to head back to the UK.  Our gite “Ville” was nothing short of outstanding with everything we could have possibly wanted and more.  It was so beautifully furnished and equipped – something you don’t tend to get with other gite properties in France.  Couple that with the surroundings of your glorious property and the facilities made available to the guests (loved the pool & Jacuzzi!), all of which contributed to a truly memorable stay.  Thank you both for being such wonderful hosts, sharing your exquisite home and making our stay so special.  We will certainly be sharing this experience with our friends and hope to visit you again soon with some others in tow! A bientot!

Outstanding gite in a gorgeous estate with great facilities.  We had a lovely time and hope to return one day soon.  Thanks to Fiona and Eugene for making it so special.

Karen and Mark (stayed August 2016)

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for a lovely stay at Le Logis de Luxe.  The accommodation was spacious and very well appointed, and the outdoor pool a place I didn’t want to leave.  The younger members of the family loved the indoor pool, Jacuzzi and gym, as well as the games of pool and darts in the bar.  Being a child-free destination was a big plus for all of us, even our 19 and 23 year olds.  You were perfect hosts, easy to find if we needed anything and great company when we chatted.  Your tips on places to visit and opening times were very helpful and there’s certainly a lot to do and see in the area.  We’re in the process of sorting out everyone’s holiday date preference for next year and I hope to be in touch shortly to book for next year.

Missing Le Logis already – we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the 3 bedroom apartment (much more than a gite) at Le Logis for 2 weeks in July 2016 – the spa facilities were high quality and the ladies made good use of the treatments.  Fiona and Eugene were warm and unobtrusive hosts who provided information on the surrounding region and arranged for great weather.  We visited La Rochelle, La Tremblade, Cognac and Saintes.  The beaches at Royan and St. George de Didonne were great for swimming and sunbathing, whilst beaches at Ile d’Oleron were best for surfing.  They recommended several local restaurants and we tasted exquisite food at Clos des Cours in Saintes.  Probably one of our best holiday locations, which our cat also enjoyed and we will certainly return.  Highly recommended.

The Clarke Family (stayed July 2016)

This is truly a beautiful peaceful place.  Both yourself and Eugene were so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for you.  Our gite was way beyond our expectations with the high ceilings, tasteful furnishings and a bed that was everything that comfortable and luxurious should be.  The bathroom was also of a similar standard and it was terrific to have a full kitchen and barbecue at our disposal.  Everything was spotless and new.  The swimming pool was heavenly and the gardens around the main house were picture perfect.  I would highly recommend this wonderful lodging for some well deserved peace and quiet.  A place where you can enjoy the beautiful countryside of France.  We found a little bit of heaven at Le Logis at Dompierre-sur-Charente.  10/10.

We couldn’t agree more with the comprehensive testimonial provided by the Evans family [see below] which we whole-heartedly endorse.  Thank you Fiona and Eugene for being wonderful hosts and for helping to make what was for us a lovely family holiday.  We’re missing the gorgeous bread & croissants from the local boulangerie already!

The Watts Family (stayed August 2015)

We have recently stayed in the one bedroom gite and what a wonderful week we had.  The facilities are superb, the gite had everything we needed and Fiona and Eugene were the perfect hosts.  There were plenty of interesting places to visit, particularly Saintes.  We will definitely stay there again.  Thank you Fiona and Eugene.

We stayed in Le Logis for a week in July 2015 and I have to say that in 25 years of staying in an assortment of houses, apartments, villas and gites, across a number of countries in Europe, this is probably the best we’ve found.  The property itself is beautiful (the pictures on the website don’t do it justice) and the facilities are second to none.  The superb outdoor pool, the nicely designed indoor spa and gym and the thoughtful bar/games room are all very nicely presented, and the availability of drinks from well stocked fridges is a really good idea.  The gite itself was excellent, offering stylish and comfortable accommodation, with again much thought being given to the needs of the customer, although, interestingly at no time did we feel like customers, more like very welcome guests.  This included such nice touches inside as enough kitchen roll and toilet paper to last the visit; and outside, privacy and a lovely view back up to the main house across the maturing, well laid out garden.  The hosts Eugene and Fiona were welcoming and helpful in that nice but unobtrusive way that make you feel immediately at ease and were able to provide any help and advice we needed.  In short, I would have no hesitation in recommending this place.  It really is holiday accommodation as you’d like it to be.
