“Second visit, we're addicted!”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed here last August and couldn't wait to come back. May can have mixed weather and we did but the barn didn't let us down. On the colder evening we set a fire in the wood burner and enjoyed a great meal with friends at the oversized dining table, cosy warm and welcoming. The hot days were spent by the lovely big pool and under the hanger which is fabulous for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with candlelit barbecues and late night star gazing. Perfectly appointed with very comfy beds, we can't fault this place, a perfect peaceful getaway within in access of Limoges airport where we flew in from Stansted on Ryanair. Looking forward to our next visit already! Thank you Toby and Lesley, great hosts x

“Just perfect in so many ways!”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This amazing barn has the perfect location. The views are magnificent and we spent wonderful long evenings under the the hanger listening to so much bird song.....so peaceful! Great to visit places like St Emilion, Riberac and Aubeterre to name but a few. A very spacious Gite both inside and out, spotlessly clean, great welcome pack and suited our group of 8 perfectly though we could easily have invite more of our friends. Very helpful hosts and we will be back! Thank you so much!

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a place! Have stayed in a few Gites around the region but nothing compares to this area. The Owners were so welcoming and the Gite itself was fantastic. Plenty of room for all of us and so comfortable. The views were stunning. Will definitely be booking to go back next year!

“Wow! We'll be back...”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Two families shared this gite and the space was ideal. Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived and there was plenty of space for everyone inside and out. Lesley and Toby have made a wonderful job of this renovation with interesting features (esp the banister on the stairs!!), comfortable furniture and the kitchen was really well appointed. The two en-suite bathrooms were great and the family bathroom was again on the large side. It has a fantastic pool area with what must be one of the most stunning views in the Charente, and the covered patio was a real bonus if it was too hot, which makes the al fresco dining a pure pleasure! There is a great field at the top of the property with again spectacular views, but great for the kids to play any ball sports in total safety and out of our way! Lesley and Toby were there if you needed them and informed us of great places to eat. We come to France most years and this really is a stunning area with plenty to see and do. We can't recommend this place more highly and hope to be back for more wine tasting, markets and general all round chilling out next year!

“Fantastic gite in a great location with superb hosts”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed for a week at this beautiful converted barn property and would have happily stayed much longer! Such a peaceful and private space for a complete getaway from it all.
The property is newly renovated and is amazing, creative use of space and perfect for a big family with plenty of flexible bedroom options with bunks for kids and great outdoor space. The pool and deck are perfect and there's also undercover outdoor space when it gets too hot.
The owners are great, very knowledgable and able to suggest day trips, restaurants etc.
Looking forward to our next visit already!
Thanks Toby and Lesley for making us so welcome!
