We arrived to be greeted by our hosts, Steve and her husband Harry, who showed us around, explained how to use every thing in the house, and the beautiful pool. A welcome package was left for us, some of which they had bought for us, when they asked if there was any shopping we would need, and some of which was a welcome gift.
The nearby village of Blanzac had everything for our day to day needs, and Barbezieux, about 10mins away is a lively, pretty French town with plenty of restaurants. The local scenery and wild-life is great, and we were offered the use of bicycles which were great for relaxing and leaving the car behind for a change. Angouleme, about 20mins by car, is a very pretty bastide town. So many pretty places to visit. Also a big lake with a sandy beach not far away!
A beautiful home in the heart of the French countryside.
The house is fully equipped with everything you could need. The owners have done an amazing job renovating this beautiful building and if you are lucky enough to have a drink with them you are sure to feel at home and welcomed by a fantastic couple.
House is close to local towns and a great location to appreciate this beautiful country.
This home is definitely a wonderful place to stay and would highly recommend.
We have been visiting this lovely house every year since 2012 and we are never disappointed. The house is very well equipped and the wifi is a great hit with our teenagers.
Steve and Harry are excellent hosts, always there if needed but always keep a respectful distance. Nothing is too much trouble.
Very much looking forward to our return in August.
