“Excellent hosts and top class accommodation”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The gite was in pristine condition and out hosts Linda and Ian were most helpful with any questions we had. The facilities within the gite were first class and there was really nothing they had not thought of that we would have needed.

“Outstanding property with obliging owners”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is an outstanding property set in a quiet area surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers.
Nothing is too much trouble for Ian and Linda, the kind and friendly owners whose attention to detail is superb.
The gite is well equipped with good quality appliances and furnishings and is cool and airy even in the very hot and sunny weather we had during our visit in August. There is a lovely alfresco dining area outside the door (complete with family of hedgehogs while we were there) with its own bbq where we were able to enjoy the wall to wall sunshine. There is even English freeview T V and wifi which extends to the pool area should you want it.
The swimming pool is lovely, making it tempting to never leave the gite, and benefits from a bowl design, rather than a shallow and deep end making it safer for children of all ages. There is also a large garden with the opportunity to play football, cricket or table tennis. Ian and Linda are always available with help and suggestions for local attractions or practicalities such as supermarkets as well as having the local knowledge to send you to the off the beaten track places you would otherwise miss.
The locality is a lovely area to explore and Barbezieux the local town has everything you need including a large hypermarket .Bordeaux Cognac and the lovely beaches at Royan are all within an hour’s car ride.
We would return again and again to this property, thank you Ian and Linda for your exceptional welcome, care and kindness!

“Beyond what was expected.”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Lovely built properties with character in an attractive peaceful country setting. The property had everything that one would expect and more. The owners thought of every detail. Even has English TV as well as French. The owners, Ian and Lynda go out of their way to be helpful yet are unobtrusive. Certainly if you require advice on what to do or where to visit then just ask them. It was a pleasure meeting them.
This is not a place to stay without a car and it is too far to walk to the local villages/town to have a drink.
