We stayed at Lin’s wonderful Maison in the Charante Valley and had a fabulous four days exploring the area and relaxing with friends and family.
The wonderfuly quirky layout meant we could all get together over a meal or round the wood burner in the living room but also have our own space to retreat to.
We had the ensuite double bedroom up stairs at the front and opening up the shutters after a good nights sleep to the sound of the river and the birds, with an amazing view over the valley, was special. If you are looking for a well equipped cosy and typically French maison in the Charante -look no further. Thanks Lin, can’t wait to visit again.
We loved this charming house. It's old but has been modernised; particular asset is a huge garden, with views overlooking bridge, ruins and river Charente. Numerous outside eating opportunities. Nearby village has a top restaurant, and cities of Angoulême and Cognac aren't far away. We also visited the coast at the wonderful Ile de Re.
