We were fairly confident that this would be a lovely house, having done some research and reading the previous reviews before going... But the house and grounds surpassed our expectations and we has a wonderful holiday. Robert, the owner and his band of local helpers were extremely helpful and the range of entertainments, quality of equipment and linen provided all added up to a top notch location. Looking forward to a return trip next year!

“Fantastic house in a stunning rural setting, the perfect family gettaway.”

I can not reccomend this house highly enough. We were a family of 12 from age 10-70. We had intended to spend most of the week exploring the surrounding areas as the house is well placed to visit different parts of Dordogne/Charente area. However the weather was so beautiful and hot, but mostly the house was so captivating that none of us ever wanted to be away for too long. Rob has enusred there is plenty to keep guests of all ages amused/entertained whatever the weather. The lovely pool, bikes, trampoline, pool table, darts, croquet, boad games etc..
I for one can not wait to go back, chilled out by the pool, glass of wine in hand watching the sun set behind the hills revealing the starriest sky any of us had ever seen. Will always be remembered, as my youngest nephew quite rightly said 'it's our best holiday ever!'

We had the pleasure of staying at La Coutancie for 5 months and it was magical! We had such a fantastic time I cried when I left. House is spacious ,well decorated and presented, anything you need you have there. Sunset from the living room window in the evening is really special.
Rob is fabulous, nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble, any problem , any info you need is just a phone call or a text away. You helped me greatly when my dog was sick and I am forever grateful to you!!!

I highly recommend La Countancie, I'd go back in a heartbeat!!!!!!!!!

“Perfect French Getaway with all you could want and more!”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

This was my second visit and once again, the house did not disappoint and everything from my original review (5 reviews down) still stands.

As well as being spacious and large, the house is also really comfortable, so we do feel very ‘at home’ here; with 3 big comfy sofas and every bedroom beautifully decorated with sumptuous bedding, mattresses and décor, nice bathrooms and showers. The 2 kitchens are very well stocked with equipment. (You could actually bake a cake if you wanted to!) I also disagree with the reviewer (2 reviews down) regarding the kitchen upstairs - it is a French country style which is just different to the rest of the house, which is more contemporary but it’s spotlessly clean, as is the rest of the house. I'm also aware from the owner, that he has plans to modernise and extend the kitchen very soon.

We had a very relaxing holiday. The weather was fantastic – glorious sunshine every day in early September. Being in the countryside means that at night there’s no light pollution – the sky was completely clear and dark enough that you could see the Milky Way which is real treat if, like us, you live in a town.

Although there are lots of places to visit and things to do in the area, we were enjoying ‘living’ there so much that we only went out once. We visited the river beach at Aubeterre Sur Dronne and also the pretty town itself which has some nice jewellery & pottery shops, bakers, butcher and a good selection of restaurants and cafes around a square.

I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a relaxing base in the French countryside, from which to explore all that the Dordogne has to offer, with all the comforts of home and can’t honestly think of anything that was missing.

“A holiday that will long remembered for the very best of reasons”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

La Coutancie is a grand holiday house for large groups. Our three sons and their wives/ partners have been holidaying with us, and our ever increasing number of grandchildren for the past 15 years. My wife and I have rented both in the UK and Europe and La Coutancie is the best venue by far. Incidentally, compared to similarly sized homes in the UK it was the cheapest.

The house was clean, well furnished, equipped and decorated; and the well kept gardens and play equipment proved very popular with the 9 children. Two of the younger ones leaned to ride two-wheeled bikes for the first time on the gently smoking lawns. The swimming pool more than compensated for the distance from the coast.

Robert, one of the owners, rang to check if everything was ok; a great personal touch we have never previously experienced.

Mary and I always try to achieve a holiday that will be remembered and talked about years in the future. La Coutancie will be talked of to our great grand children.
