“Peace & Quiet”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We originally booked for two weeks but ended up staying for 4 weeks (say no more)
Our hosts Sarah & Steve made us feel very welcome, I have to say that as Sarah bribed us with some of her delicious home made cakes!
Les Volets Framboises was the place for us & our dog Spook, set in a quiet rural hamlet of about 12 properties but a short drive to the nearest town we thought it was ideal, with lovely walks literally on your doorstep, the Gite was well equipped & had everything you could want with Sky TV, internet etc, two bedrooms both en suite and a lovely open plan lounge & kitchen you could want for no more, beautiful views & a pool although a little cold at times & a BBQ and lovely areas to sit in outside just chilling it was just perfect, thanks Sarah & Steve can't wait to visit again soon.

“Fantastic holiday in perfect Gite”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Spent two weeks in this wonderful place this summer. Gite was perfect, had all we needed and was in a lovely quiet location. The pool was enjoyed by all especially the kids and the massive BBQ was just what we needed after a hard day relaxing by the pool.
The owners are on hand should you need anything and couldn`t haave been more helpful. There`s loads to do in the area if you want and the local bar and bakery are only a short walk away. Beautiful area, wonderful Gite, great pool and fantastic hosts.... Will be back soon...

“Best New Year I can remmeber”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Complete de-stress from the moment we arrived.
Steve and Sarah were the perfect hosts - happy to chat and pass on local information and also equally happy to ensure privacy.
We loved the cooking / dining area and spent evenings chatting and preparing dinner - it was great. Every thing was spotlessly clean and Sarah obviously has a flair and put in extra effort to add personal touches.
I can imagine anyone not having a great time here.

“Exactly what we were looking for”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Although our stay was only a few days to break our journey back to the UK, it was just perfect. The accommodation was ideal for us and at a very reasonable rate. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. Helpful to a fault and, well, just nice people. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave us lots of hints and information on the area, in which we are looking to settle. We have been back to visit them again since and will no doubt keep in touch once we are resident here. The house is in a small hamlet on the edge of a pleasant village and within easy reach of just about everywhere worth visiting in the region. The gardens are lovely and the pool a real bonus. Quiet and tucked away it was a peaceful haven in which to spend our time relaxing. Thanks Sarah and Steve for all your kindnesses and may Chelsea escape relegation (just) this season. Look forward to seeing you soon.

“Simply the best”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This beautiful gite was a wonderful discovery on our latest trip to France. It was outstanding in every respect - a real treasure that surpassed our highest expectations.
The converted barn is not only exceedingly spacious and fitted out to a very high standard, but it exudes the charm of a venerable old stone building that has been thoughtfully restored. The main room, which acts as a kitchen, dining room and lounge combined, is enormous, featuring a beautiful varnished pine floor and exposed original roof beams. Leading off it through double glass doors is the delightful decked balcony and outside dining area which overlooks the pristine pool and surrounding wooded countryside. The bucolic view across the fields towards distant hills is wonderfully peaceful and restorative, and on a beautiful day one feels no inclination to leave it.
The two bedrooms each have their own en-suite facility which incorporates an excellent shower, wash-hand basin and toilet. Outside, the immaculately maintained pool is a wonderful feature and is totally at the disposal of the guests alone.
The owners, Sarah and Steve are superb hosts. The live separately in their own house on site and completely respect the privacy of their guests but they are there for you if you would like their help or advice. My wife and I found them completely charming and engaging, and for them, nothing is too much trouble in ensuring that their guests have the most relaxing time possible while on holiday there.
This area of France, on the borders of the Dordogne and Charente is one we'd never been to before and we found that it had much to offer. Historic towns such as Brantome, St. Jean de Cole and Aubeterre are not far away and are well worth a visit. At the same time there are several good places to eat such as Le Petit restaurant,(outstanding), and Les Promenades in Mareuil ,(excellent value and quality).
The countryside is richly varied with woods,hills and rivers as well as extensive farmland supporting crops of sunflowers, maize and wheat and also features a range of fruit orchards.
We enjoyed a wonderful late-summer holiday at Les Volets Framboises. The gite is a complete delight - a combination of superb accommodation, privacy and the most hospitable owners imaginable.

“The perfect holiday experience”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

It was a wonderful holiday, the Gite was large, open, light and airy. We had a really warm and friendly welcome from Sarah and Steve, they provided a welcome pack plus other items around the Gite that helped to make it feel very homely, we had more than we needed for a wonderful week.
The Gite exceeded our expectations, the location was stunning, the facilities outstanding ( the pool, veranda, gardens etc ) and the hosts, Sarah and Steve were brilliant. They just seemed to know when to be around and when not, in short the perfect hosts.
We look forward to returning in the future and seeing your Gite grow and go from strength to strength.

“Magic”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Having been in France for the previous 9 weeks sleeping in hotels, gites and, the previous 6 weeks in a tent, this gite was an absolute delight. We were meeting friends here for a week so arriving on a Saturday afternoon at a place so spacious and light was superb, add to this the personal touches from the owners, Sarah and Steve, like bread, cheese, tea, coffee and even toilet roll and it was like arriving in a luxury hotel for two weary campers.
The pool was a necessary and very pleasant distraction and was always clean and well maintained.
During the week both Sarah and Steve remained discreet but very efficient and even helped us have a wonderful last evening giving up their personnel time.
I can't praise the gite or the owners enough it was an absolute pleasure to stay here!

Liked best: It's difficult to pick out one thing so everything
Liked least: Just one minor issue for me was the footboard so that seem to be on most beds in France, I am 6' 3" and the foot boards on the bed caused me to have to sleep in a slightly compromised position.
