“What a great place to stay”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I recently stayed in Le Grand Bois for a week,Ian and Linda were very welcoming and could not be more helpful.It is out in the country,but is very accessible to Barbezieux and to Angouleme. It is a beautifully restored Charente building merging into the vine covered countryside. I stayed in the larger of the two gites,everything one would expect was to hand in the gite.I didn't try the swimming pool as the weather was rather stormy for much of the time I was there.
Ian and Linda were extremely sociable,thank-you for the drinks! They were also very helpful on the practical issues-the cheapest petrol,where to park in Bordeaux etc
I would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay to explore the beautiful Charente countryside and tyowns-make certain you do not miss Saintes,Cognac and Bordeaux.

“Excellent gite, attention to detail and hospitaility.”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Lovely gite, very well equipped with super swimming pool and grounds. The hosts, Lynda and Ian, were very welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. The attention to detail was excellent with great care being taken to provide a welcoming home from home. The gite was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Lynda and Ian clearly put a great deal of thought into providing their guests with the best holiday.
A great welcoming pack with all the essentials (including wine) was provided.
The area is lovely with great places to visit for children and adults. We had a fabulous holiday and would not hesitate to return.
