3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, Charente, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Set in a tranquil rural hamlet on the banks of the river Dronne, yet only a few minutes drive from one of the prettiest villages in France, you'll find La Retraite, a lovely old gite with exposed stone, huge wooden beams and bags of character.

La Retraite sleeps six, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Set on nearly a quarter of an acre, it has an enormous living room, fully fitted eat-in kitchen and a lovely garden with an above ground swimming pool. The stunning river beach of Aubeterre sur Dronne is only four minutes away by car, as well as an array of restaurants and cafes in Aubeterre (classed as one of 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France') and other nearby villages.

There's a lot to do in the South Charente. Why not hire a bike and cycle the quiet lanes of the area, or go to one of the nearby vineyards for a w...

We flew to Bordeaux Airport and had no problem find the house using GPS. The journey in a hired car took approx 75 minutes. The house is completely charming, very...

We stayed at this lovely gite during summer and had a brilliant time! The property is located in a small collection of houses within walking distance of the picturesque hilltop village of Aubeterre-sur-dronne. The gite had a large kitchen with an open plan living area and plenty of rustic features. It was airy inside and stayed cool even during when...

Just a few minutes from the picturesque village of Aubeterre-Sur-Dronne, the gite is in a great location for a holiday to suit most people. We found La Retraite to be well equipped for our requirements and enjoyed our stay very much. Local restaurants and boulangeries are only a 5 minute drive away or easily reached by cycling along the quiet...
