“Amazing Chambre D'Hote, Amazing Hosts”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Just back from one night with Sylvie and her family. What can I say .. Amazing Amazing Amazing :-)
We stayed in a newly renovated room over looking the garden and the River. Very stylish and tasteful with everything you need for a truly magnificent stay. Sylvie couldn't be more lovely.. friendly, helpful, and did amazingly to converse in English with us. We had the table d'hote home made meal, served in a beautiful potting shed with windows to 2 sides overlooking the river.. all home made, serving with wine and all the trimmings. Even with my special diet Sylvie looked through recipes to make sure she cooked something I could eat ( most 5* hotels wouldn't offer to do this ). A great nights sleep with the silent sound of the river nearby was tranquil. Breakfast was served in the lovely dining room ( rain that morning so no chance to eat on the patio sadly ) . Yet again Sylvie offered me a choice so that there was something I could eat. What was offered was gorgeous, plenty of bread,ham, cheese, pastries, fruit, coffee and her amazing home-made preserves, the Apricot and Lavender was my favourite, and my friend loved the Watermelon and Lemon. The location is perfect, next to the river, 4 mins drive from the nearby village ( not that we wanted to leave the beautiful setting ).
All I can say in that I would recommend this everyone... its a truly spectacular place to stay, Sylvie and her family are the perfect hosts and we will stay again with Sylvie the next time we come to look at houses over in the Charente area. Thank you Sylvie for a very memorable stay.

We just developed our vacation photos including the 3 days & nights spent at the Cascade de Saintonge - absolutely beautiful - can't help but smile remembering the the special time we spent there. Somehow we didn't get lost finding it and when beautiful & bubbly Sylvie opened the enormous gate to greet us, we immediately felt welcome and special. The views, decor, and facilities are outstanding. The romantic evening meals are over the top memory makers. Sylvie and Phillipe are so obviously in love with each other, and with sharing such delicious meals and setting with their guests, the happiness abounds for all, including the engaging pets (especially Valentine the cat who quietly sat near us at dinners). The peace and quiet is heavenly, as is the music of the waterfall, yet so many interesting cities and sites are just a short drive - again, Sylvie is very helpful with information. What a privilege to be part of this spectacular family property - we're telling all of our friends!

We stayed for several nights after our wedding at the local abbey of Bassac and it was absolutely perfect. Located on the Charente river and backing onto a weir, the picturesque location is something out of a Monet painting. The day starts with breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden and river. Try the unique and delicious home made jams made by Sylvie-they are great. The garden is stunning and you can swim in the river or even borrow a little row boat. There is also the option of having lunch and dinner at La Cascade by the river which is just fabulous. Our room was gorgeous and spotlessly clean. Sylvie was incredibly welcoming and helpful. There is an adorable and very obedient golden retriever that appreciates a little bit of petting but will never go near your food.


You will feel a million miles away from civilisation but it is only a 10 minute drive to the local town of Jarnac that is the site of Courvoisier and about 30 mins to Cognac and Angouleme, the larger local centres. We would highly recommend La Cascade and we will definately stay there again.

Room Tip: There is an apartment area that is for a couple. Upstairs there are two rooms but share the same bat...
