Tales from the ... C wrote a review Aug 2020

I stayed in the self-contained apartment at Ste Helene, and it perfectly fitted the bill for a week’s ‘retreat’ amidst a busy visit to friends nearby. The apartment is spacious and beautifully kitted out, with fantastic kitchen facilities, beautiful shower room, very comfortable bed, and many thoughtful and generous touches of luxury. The welcome from Kay and Mark was warm, and their assistance readily given when needed. If visiting again I would probably choose to stay in one of the rooms in the main house - due to proximity of the main road, which is busy mainly morning and eve of weekdays - but the apartment was ideal for independent living and cooking. Thanks Kay and Mark!

Central, spotless, lovely furnishings, helpful owners, great price Would totally recommend. Great location for exploring area and canals - bikes in apartment for use - one tip is pull back terrace door, have a glass of wine and enjoy being in your private little French apartment round the corner from shops, bars etc

Unfortunately our tour which was due to start on 23rd May was cancelled due to the outbreak. As soon as it was evident that cancellation was likely we received clear and accurate communication from Mark and Kay. No stupid comments just reliable up to date accurate information. Once the French Government made their position clear we were offered a 45% refund with the remainder being put towards a future tour. We were delighted with this outcome and look forward to travelling when safe to do so. I am sure it will be a 5 star experience if other reviews and our initial experience with the hosts are anything to go by. I will of course update this review once we have travelled but I wanted to put our experiences on record. We are obviously dealing with a very professional couple who want to do their best for their clients.

I came to Olonzac to see the apartment I was interested in purchasing, but it had been bought by someone else. As I wanted to see the area in the off season, in case another place came on the market, the Sainte-Helene seemed a great choice for accommodation. However, my stay dates at the end of November coincided with their renovation dates. Ever welcoming, Mark and Kay offered the adjacent self catering apartment as an option. I accepted. The apartment is exactly as pictured. Spacious, with all the amenities, it was a comfortable, centrally located address. The shower was an absolute gem, with Occitane toiletries and a rain shower. As residents of the area for years, Mark and Kay were a fountain of knowledge about the area. Maps and brochures of the village and things to do were provided. And, excellent wine advice, as well. If given a second chance to return to Olonzac, I would choose any option the Sainte-Helene offers. The hospitality afforded me was unmatched.
