If you only require your pool to be opened in spring or closed in winter, we can do this with or without our Weekly Pool Care service.
We offer a choice of 3 levels of Weekly Pool Care catering for everyone's needs.
If we open your pool in spring and carry one of our Weekly Pool Care services, we will guarantee the clarity of your water.
Available to new clients who do not benefit from our Clear Water Guarantee.
If your pool water is green or cloudy we can perform a rescue to bring it back to how it should be. Crystal Clear.
The sand in your filter will require changing periodically (normally every 2 to 3 years).
Changing the sand will improve the efficiency of your filter and increase water clarity.

It is always important to keep your garden machinery well maintained and we can offer a full service of your equipment. We can even collect and delivery it.
Whatever the machine, if it breaks down we can repair it.
Our Garden Machinery Maintenance works are carried out by our in-house qualified and very experienced mechanic. Using our specially built workshop, we provide an unparalleled quality of service.
Not only are we fully insured for the work we do but you can rest assured that your item of machinery is fully insured against fire or theft whilst in our care.
Buying a holiday home is an important decision. Once you have made this decision it is equally important that, when you arrive after a long journey, you have time to enjoy it! We understand that the last thing you want to do is walk in the front door to be greeted with that 'closed in' stale air smell as well as the dust and dead insects. This is, of course, after you have battled your way through the overgrown jungle that was once a garden.
It does not have to be this way...
We can ensure that when you arrive, your holiday home has been fully aired and cleaned, beds can be made and some basic rations (such as wine, water etc.) are bought in advance. The jungle can be tamed so that all you do is turn up and start your holiday. What could be better than that?
When you are away from your holiday home it is equally important that it does not become an unnecessary worry. We can carry out regular Security Visits to ensure that all is as it should be: the house and grounds will be checked for forced entry as well as damage caused by adverse weather. Inside we will check for burst pipes, electrical failure and any unwanted rodent visitors.
Security Visits are normally carried out on a monthly basis as well as additional visits after severe weather conditions: wind, cold or rain etc. Our details can also be left with your Mairie as a point of contact should they need to get hold of someone when you are out of the country. Added to this, we can also help should you need any translating until you are confident with your French language.

Sand Filter Change
Owning a gite can be rewarding but its also hard work! We have met many people who successfully run one or several gites. One thing most of these people have in common is that, perhaps from time to time, they need a little help. That might be with cleaning, the laundry or with some of the maintenance. Guess what..... we can help with all those aspects.
As we have developed Charente Assistance from its humble beginnings much of what we have done has in some ways been alongside those who rent out houses. We have listened to our clients needs and responded by providing the assistance that they need. Sometimes we have been asked to clear an area of neglected garden, sometimes season long garden maintenance or occasionally a one-off emergency job.
Whatever the need we are sure we can help.
We hear tales of how owners take on one person to do the changeover, another to do the garden and, heaven forbid, perhaps a third to do the laundry or the pool. With each person waiting on another to complete their part in this time pressured job it can be frustrating at best, disastrous at worst!
In order to avoid these potential disasters we have developed what we call 'Quad Cover'. That means when we take on a gite for the season, we will take responsibility for all four aspects:
Changeovers - Laundry - Garden - Pool
That way we can ensure that each element is completed on time and to the highest standard.
Please note, changeover and laundry services are currently only available as part of our Quad Cover. See our terms for full details.
