“PARADISE IN THE CHARENTE”
Reviewed 18 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

A beautifully presented period stone property with great amenities including a fantastic large heated swimming pool.The gardens and grounds are immaculate!!
Nothing was to much trouble for the owners Mark and Andrea --- who went out of their way to assist with local knowledge etc. --- we are, of course, going back next year.

“What a great place to be for a vacation”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

What a great place to be for a vacation. The pool was heated up till 26 degrees and the chairs arround the pool where perfect.
The house was amazing, everything you need, was there. For every person in the house, there was a bicyle available.
And the owners where really nice people.
Maybe next year we come again!

“Lovely property with private pool and garden within 30 mins of Poitiers and other places to visit.”
Reviewed 28 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We spent a relaxing two weeks at this well equipped property which has been lovingly restored and is immaculately presented. We had planned to tour around more and look at some nearby towns and chateaux etc but the weather was so good that we actually spent the first week just lazing in the garden around the large, clean pool during the day and occasionally going for a swim to cool off, and then relaxing in the private back garden, having BBQ's and eating alfresco in the evening. During the second week we made an effort and visited Poitiers and on the way home from there we went to Futuroscope and bought an evening ticket for 5pm onwards and enjoyed the evening show and experienced some of the virtual rides. We also visited La Rochelle which took us about 1 hour 45 mins but was worth the journey for the moules and frites alone! We parked in St Nicholas car park in the vieux port which was signposted and is close to the tourist information office, where we bought a town plan with a suggested walking route on it (20 cents). There are lots of narrow streets with shops in and we spent a happy afternoon browsing.
Our daughter and son-in-law took their 8 month old to monkey world and even though we thought he would be too young, he thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed out loud at the monkeys. His parents enjoyed it too.
We used the bikes provided to cycle to Romagne for a leisurely lunch and for general enjoyment of the area. There was hardly any traffic!
The property is in a rural setting but there are several places to visit nearby. We wanted a relaxing holiday and made the most of the table tennis table provided and all the books and DVD's left for guests to enjoy. It was like a home from home only a lot warmer for us! It was our first holiday with our extended family and we all enjoyed ourselves.
