Beautiful gite which was spacious, spotlessly clean, had great features, comfortable furniture and the kitchen was really well appointed. It has a wonderful pool area with stunning views across the valley and a large covered patio. This really is a most beautiful and interesting area of France with plenty to see and do. We had a wonderful holiday. Thanks so much and we hope to book again. Highly recommended.
We had the most wonderful time here. The location is beautiful and accomodation was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We had everything we needed and Toby and Lesley were delightful and happy to help if we needed. The pool is great and the outdoor area is perfect for al fresco dinning or an evening drink as the sun goes down. I will definitely be returning.
We enjoyed our stay very much! The location is amazing, there is plenty of room inside and outside and the pool is fantastic! In the house there is a book of all interesting things to do and we used it often. Thanks for having us! Hope to come again!
What a fantastic place! We arrived after a long journey to a very warm welcome from Lesley & Toby! Celebrating my Fathers 70th birthday, during a 2 week stay to this beautiful area. Plenty of activities to do for all three generations! We especially enjoyed kayaking and horse riding locally. Kids loved the pool and spent most of their time in it whilst we had lazy days at the Gite. Lots of BBQ'S and evening walks in the amazing countryside followed by a glass or two of wine under the hanger watching the sunset! absolutely amazing place! Thank you so much Lesley & Toby for a wonderful stay. We will be back for sure :)
Our first mistake was only staying a week at this fantastic location. The first thing we noticed was the panoramic view - not the sweeping Dordogne hills, but the actual size of the lounge area. The images on the website do not do it justice. We are a family of six adults and avoided tripping over one another in this ample sized property.
The English owners who live in the adjoining property were on hand to answer our queries and share local tips on where to go and what to see. The house is nestled in an area peppered with pretty villages with cosy restaurants and quaint bars. Bordeaux is just over an hour away and the Cognac area is about 40 minutes to the north. We avoided the expensive and rather sterile tours offered by the famous cognac houses, opting instead to take Leslie’s advice (one of the owners) and visit a local independent Cognac producer. A memorable morning was spent sampling his Cognacs and excellent sparkling fizz, resulting in us purchasing several cases - very good value.
Having spent a short time at the property I can highly recommend it along with the professionalism of its owners, Leslie and Toby.
What a beautiful and relaxing place. An amassing setting, with plenty to do in the surrounding towns. Angouleme, the market in Riberac, Aubeterre-sur-dronne ( don't forget your swimsuit ;-) )
The owners are very friendly and helpful. It's like coming home. The house is very well equipped. Verry beautiful renovation off the barn Toby. With one of the bikes you can go to the bakery. It's also a nice run of 25 minutes
Thank you for the wonderful vacation
We will come back
A beautifully converted barn overlooking the glorious French countryside. The Gite is suitable for the whole family and has the benefit of its own pool, which was amazing to climb into after a busy day sight seeing. Close enough to town, we were able to pick up fresh bread and pastries in the morning for breakfast whilst sitting on the side terrace admiring the view. Evenings can be spent on the back deck watching the sun set with a chilled drink. A great location, gorgeous house and the owners were kind and helpful, we loved the welcome basket on arrival! Thank you.
