Cottage
Our newly refurbished cottage has been named 'La Coquille' to denote the scallop shell above the front door, said to announce the fact that is was a resting place for pilgrims en route to Santiago de Compostella. La Coquille is situated in a peaceful location at the end of a small lane on the edge of the forest and if you are lucky you will be able to watch deer from the terrace early morning or at dusk. Its location means it is a safe place for kids to play but as it isn't part of a complex, La Coquille makes an excellent couples retreat - the only neighbours are the owners...and their cats. The popular village of Aubeterre Sur Dronne (voted as one of the prettiest villages in France) is just 3.5 miles away and it boasts its own river beach and golf club.

There are lots of delicious restaurants in the centre to choose from, along with the charming small shops and a local market on a Sunday morning. La Coquille is also ideally situated for you to explore the Charente, the Dordogne, the Atlantic coast and the vineyards of St Emillion and Bordeaux. La Coquille offers you a safe peaceful spot to recharge your batteries and explore the local area. It is a restored cottage, thought to date back to the 1700's and still retains many original features. There is a large sitting room with large limestone fireplace and original sink. This leads to the fully fitted kitchen, which includes oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There is also dining space. The door leads to the shady terrace, with space for al fresco dining and just a short stroll to the dedicated pool. From the sitting room, you pass through the formal dining room up the stairs and on the first floor there is a twin room, a family bathroom and an en-suite double bedroom.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Peaceful Isolation in Wonderful Countryside
This was a visit to the second gite after the first week was spent just south of the Dordogne. The weather wasn’t perfect but the gite was. It was well equipped and well furnished. The gite is set in rolling farmland and, during our stay, had a backdrop of a massive field of the most glorious sunflowers. There were deer living in the woodland and they strayed into full view grazing on a piece of meadowland. The patio area had a small hedge of lavender which attracted humming bird moths and zebra swallowtail butterflies. Aubeterre is close by and well worth a visit. We also enjoyed the weekly market in Chalais and ate out in a cafe there on two occasions. Lesley and Pete were available for advice but were completely unobtrusive hosts. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed a very peaceful and relaxing break. We may well return in 2024.

Gorgeous Gite in Perfect Setting!
Very well appointed, spacious and stylish Gite with bags of character and rustic charm but with every modern comfort ( great power shower and comfy beds!) A perfect rural setting, our private BBQ terrace and pool overlooked a field of sunflowers! Nature lovers paradise - walks from the door down country lanes or across fields or into the forest to keep cool. We absolutely loved it. We stayed three weeks and didn’t want to leave! Great location, only 10 mins from beautiful Aubeterre sur Dronne for cafes and restaurants and only 15 mins from Chalais for shopping and the market. Lovely owners, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There when you need them but not at all intrusive. Thank you Lesley and Pete for a wonderful stay. We will be back and so will our family and friends!!

First class accommodation with wonderful scenery
Could not fault this lovely Gite. Home from home with absolutely everything in it that you expect. Very tastefully decorated and wonderfully clean and tidy. Ideal for site seeing and lovely walks around the forest area. Very peaceful. We almost did not want to move out to site see! Patio area with BBQ which was ideal for the weather and a lot of time was spent reading and chilling. Would definitely recommend this accommodation and we look forward to a further visit soon.
