“Boutique Accommodation without the stuffiness of a Hotel!”
Reviewed 14 September 2008 for a stay in September 2008

We have just returned from a very memorable trip to the beautiful Charente region in SW France, where Mandie and Chris Davis, an ex Army couple decided to set up home and also to build a unique holiday business. In the last year they have completed work on a 2 bedroom cottage, which unlike all other holiday gites is packed with high spec design features that add the luxury not often found in self catering accommodation. Under floor heating, wet room, german kitchen to name a few. They are also currently renovating a barn which which will have 2 one bedroom apartments with the same high spec design features due to be completed in 2010. The property is set in the middle of acres of vines and is only 15 mins from Cognac. Undoubtably though Mandie and Chris' USP is their warmth and hospitality and nothing is too much trouble eg drinks by the pool, fresh bread every morning, welcome basket, a tour of their neighbours local Cognac house and drinks in their home. My husband and I are very fussy when it comes to accommodation on holiday, as we do not feel we should compromise on what we are used to at home, this is definitely 5* all the way.
