We have stayed here twice and intend on going back. Of the ten different gites we have been to, this is by far the best! The facilities are superb both inside and out! David and Jeanette, the owners are fabulous and could not have been any more helpful with assistance in the gite or directing and advising us around the local area. My daughters think that the best hot chocolate in France is at The Central Bar in Civray. It just doesn't get any better. I have previously recommended this gite to friends, many of who have then also stayed here and are of the same opinion, coming home singing the praises of 'L'Ancienne Epicerie' If you only ever do one gite in your life then make it this one!!
