Villefagnan, Charente, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
The essence of this gite is relaxation combined with easy accessibility to the true french countryside. We can organise bike hire or simply hang out in the garden and swim and work on your tan. There are plenty of family days out or venture further for winery trips, just take in South West France as you wish.

Chez Sophie is a wonderful home. We were made to feel very welcome by the local manager Sylvie and all pre-holiday communication with Rose was excellent. The house itself is beautiful, spacious and comes with everything you need. the generosity of Rose to encourage her guests to make themselves at home meant that we felt relaxed from the minute we got there.

We had a wonderful stay at Chez Sophie in the summer, the house is gorgeous with lovely decor and feels very homely. The house is well stocked with lots of cooking utensils, towels, bedding, games etc. There is a huge outdoor space and we all enjoyed the pool on the hotter days! Villefagnan is well located, easy to find with quite a few shops and larger supermarkets are also close by in Ruffec. Sylvie &...
