We had a great week at Les Lindonniers in July 2016. So quiet and peaceful yet lots to do in the local area if you wish. Days out in Cognac, Bordeaux and Angouleme are within an hour.
Laura and Philip are excellent hosts. Available if you need them and always willing to make recommendations for things to do or places to eat.
The gite has everything you need, including a travel cot and high chair for little ones. Spotlessly clean and well equipped kitchen. Two patio areas mean you have sun or shade as you wish. The pool is private and warm with lots of chairs and loungers around the edge. Two bathrooms, each with a shower and one with a bath. All the rooms are spacious and there would be enough room for two families to say without feeling crowded.
We look forward to coming back soon!

Our family holiday of Grandad, Nanny, two children & myself stayed here with our hosts Laura & Phillip during the first two weeks of July. What truly wonderful hosts to have, especially when being handed fresh baked scones & bread from them, very tasty indeed.
The house is well equipped and it's very quiet and relaxing to stay in, although the birds can be quite vocal! If you want to feed the horses, walk the land or get involved you can, or you can just sit beside the pool taking in the rays until sunset, beware it's a huge sun trap and hard to escape from.
Our two week stay was fantastic and the children loved every minute of it.
It's spacious and there are two patios front and back if you need time to yourself away from children playing in the pool. The kitchen is a few steps away from the wooden deck which means hardly any energy is used if eating outside having a BBQ, which again is fantastic.
The beds are very comfy and two bathrooms means no one is in a queue.
Also a quick mention that Chalais is only ten mins in the car, and the supermarket there is fantastic and has everything you need for your holiday.
All in all a very enjoyable stay here, the children loved it and were never bored! But equally us adults felt relaxed and spoilt with such beautiful surroundings. Winner!
If we stay in the area again we shall return here as we thought Laura & Phillip were amazing and it would be lovely to see them again.
You won't regret booking this beautiful gitê.
