Everything we were looking for and more........
If you are looking for an away from the "Maddening Crowd" look no further than here. Simple, clean, comfy bed and charming cottage with as much privacy as you may care for. However if you fancy a chat Alan and Paula always have a smile and time for you along with a wealth of information about the local area.The little private garden with plenty of herbs which you can help yourself to is a delightful spot and the pool area is an absolute sun trap where you can have a glass of wine, read a good book and wait for the sun to go down whilst watching the bats flitting around the atmospheric old stone walls.
The village iitself is nice to walk around and the location is perfect for touring around or househunting as we were. If you are looking for bars and restaurants they are not here but going out and about to find them sure makes life more interesting.
If we hadn't found our own little place in the sun we would definately be returning.
Great host in a very relaxing setting
The host thought of everything and we appreciated his attention to detail. The setting is very rural but close to some interesting other villages. There are no shops or restaurants in the town.
The owner made us aware of some of the best places to eat in the area. The folder in the cottage was very helpful in finding other services.
I would give this place and the host an AAA+ rating. It really is a perfect setting in which to relax and unwind.
An Authentic French Experience
A delightful cottage - comfortable, clean and perfect for two people. A really rural area full of fields of sunflowers, maize, vines and wheat. unspoiled views, empty roads which make driving so easy and (in our case) wonderful weather!!! This is not the place for you if you want to go clubbing , but is just the place to relax, sightsee and enjoy good restaurants which are easily accessed by car. Be prepared for everything closing for 3 hours each day 12.00noon - 3.00pm (more time to relax)
The hosts are a special couple who bent over backwards to make sure that our visit was enjoyable - They
are mines of information and provided all the tourist stuff that anyone could possibly need to get the most out of the area.
A most enjoyable holiday made all the better by the warmth and friendliness of our hosts.
No noise only birdsong and the occasional tractor - a gorgeous little private courtyard with a basic splashpool - flowers and fruit trees - a little bit of simple heaven - an authentic French experience.
For the more energetic walking and cycling are enjoyable from the front gate, Available only minutes away is horseriding and fishing.The Charente river at Ruffec & mansle are popular beauty spots where the visitor can enjoy both swiming and canoeing or maybee a picnic by the waters edge.A little further La rochelle,royan and the atlantic islands oleron&re with there sandy beaches are all within easy driving distance
