“Perfect Relaxing Holiday in Fantastic Accommodation.”

We stayed here for a week, travelling as 2 couples.
The farmhouse is a stunning property immaculately maintained and presented by the owners, Sue, Andy and Olive, who struck the perfect balance of friendliness and also leaving us to relax and enjoy a peacful break. We enjoyed a drink with them on a couple of occaisions!
The farmhouse is incredibly well equipped, even down to free WiFi, and it is impossible to find fault.
We were travelling without children, but certainly for adults plenty to do nearby, but the house is in a rural area, so you will have to drive.
Would recommend a boat trip around the waterways of Venise Vert and a vsist to one of the famous name Cognac houses in the Cognac area, about an hour away.
Overall a perfect week, we do hope to return!

Sue and her partner were the best hosts there could be! Our holiday home was more like our own castle than a holiday home! We happened to stay during the hottest week in France and the swimming pool was perfect for cooling down. Not a huge swimming pool but big enough to teach someone to swim in!
There are plenty of things to do not far from the site. One place worth checking out is La Vallee des singes, 'Monkey Sanctuary'!!
There is a supermarket very near by, it has everything you need to enjoy the French cuisine.
The hosts were very accommodating and friendly, we all had a laugh and enjoyed a few drinks together. All in all a wonderful, relaxing, HOT! week in France, would go again if had the chance!

The gite was outstanding, we had plenty of space for our two families and it was equipped to a very high level.Our host's made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them.This part of france is ideal for a holiday, it is peaceful and does not get overcrowded even in August yet there is plenty to see and do, great for families.Once again a big thank you to our host's Sue, Andy and Olive.

This holiday exceeded all our expectations. The gite was beautiful , clean, well stocked and in a great location that provided us with great days out during our stay. The hosts were brilliant as well making us feel very welcome and telling us of many places to go to visit.
