Lovely comfortable and spacious accommodation for a family with everything we needed for a perfect restful week. We made good use of the fantastic pool and spacious garden, the table tennis and badminton facilities were great, Catherine was really helpful with suggestions for local trips out and had provided us with some provisions for our arrival which was great.
The area was peaceful, we ate a lovely meal at Le Bontemps in La Roche Chalais. The canoeing in the area was fantastic, less crowded than we have found other areas to be. Highly recommended.
We spent a lovely week in the house.
Catherine was very helpful, a great host.
The house is very pretty and has everything you may need. The garden is fully enclosed and ideal for young kids... although it was October, we even tried the pool a few times.
The Hamlet is very quite but not isolated, larger towns with all amenities are only a few minutes away by car.
Would I recommend... 100%
Le Clos de Leparon is an excellent gite located a five minute drive from La Roche Chalais. The house has been loving restored by Catherine who has provided everything required for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The pool area is safe and well maintained and the garden is huge with a play area for younger children and games for older children and adults to enjoy. The WiFi worked well and the UK TV channels allowed us to keep up to date with the news at home.
Catherine was a great host, she was around when needed but wasn't intrusive. The welcome basket on arrival was excellent and was probably the best we've received on any holiday.
We spent a lovely two weeks in this very comfortable holiday home. It is well located to a variety of local attractions that suit children of all ages, and when the days get too hot (which they did for us on numerous occasions) there is an amazing pool that will help you cool off. All in all we had a great stay and would happily recommend this home to any one that is looking to sample the rural French idyll.
We cannot recommend this house enough for a wonderful holiday, especially if travelling with children. The house is lovely, the garden is secure and safe and the pool is super and was the main highlight for our kids. Cathy was the best host, leaving a basket of food which stretched throughout the week and onhand next door for any questions. She was very kind about being flexible with our leaving time and lovely with our three children. We would definitely come back, it is such a beautiful area with some fantastic cheap or free family activities nearby,

We booked Le Clos de Leparon based on reviews and were not disappointed. The location is superb, quiet yet close enough to local amenities. The property provided us with everything that we could have needed and more. The pool was a great success with the children and was crystal clear every morning thanks to Moby Dick. We ventured out to local towns including St Aulaye, Aubeterre sur Dronne and further afield to St Emilion and Bordeaux, all worth a visit. The market at Chalais was excellent and the night market at Parcoul provided great food and a lovely atmosphere. Catherine was the perfect owner, whilst only being next door was always available when needed. The provision of extra tables and chairs was a particularly lovely and thoughtful gesture when we were visited by family. We would not hesitate to recommend Le Clos de Leparon for both location and the quality of the property and wish Catherine every success and hope to return in the near future.
