Le Chataignier is the smallest of four Gites in a tiny hamlet of Chez Daviaud, between Montmoreau-St-Cybard and Riberac, in the Dordogne. Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, one of the 100 prettiest villages in France is 15 minutes away and access to canoeing and river bathing on the River Dronne is easily accessible nearby.

In the heart of the Southern Charente countryside, there are plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling along the quiet country roads and woodland tracks. The Gite has shared access to a large swimming pool complex that includes a 12x6m pool, with paddling area and a separate 3m square chidren's pool.

A large grassy paddock at the back of the Gites is perfect for ad hoc games of cricket and football.

Each Gite has a masonry barbecue so long summer days in the Charentais sun can be neatly rounded off with some al fre...

This beautiful gite is one of 4 in a hamlet, and is situated up a small lane so is quiet and secluded, yet the local town is only a 10 minute drive away. Each of the gites has their own patio with BBQ, outdoor table, chairs and sun loungers, and a shared lawn that is great for ball games, with swings and climbing frame. There is a lovely saltwater pool with toddler splash pool attached, and the pool area is well stocked: sun-loungers, parasols, shaded area, table, BBQ, fridge and speakers for you to plug your MP3 player in and have music whilst you relax. The pool is gated, and Tim (the lovely British owner) locks it each evening for safety. The gite itself can sleep up to 7 people - but that would be quite cosy! Three of us stayed here, and it was about the right size, but could easily accommodate a 4th person. There is one double bedroom, a smaller room with bunk beds, and the 3rd bedroom has 3 single beds. There is a lovely bathroom with power shower over bath, and a hairdryer very...

Management response:

Thanks Lynva - a very kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and am looking forward to seeing you again.
