To find out more please do not hesitate to contact them and they will only be too pleased to share their love of this beautiful corner of France.
Fribaud is an ideal spot if you just want to chill out and enjoy the peace and tranquility or perhaps sit and watch the sunset over the fields and sip a glass of the local wine. Or maybe a stroll round the beautiful leafy lanes. But it is also ideally situated to tour the Charente Maritime with its many and varied coastal resorts, the oyster beds, the vineyards, the historic towns and villages (Saintes is ten minutes away - it is rich in roman architecture, the Charente river gently flows through the town and it has wonderful markets selling local produce every day except Mondays but on the first Monday of the month all the roads are closed to accommodate a huge foire).
Fribaud Pastorale Guest Book: A great week - great accommodation in a great location. Very quiet and peaceful. Sat and watched the sunset over Fribaud.
Josie and Roy were always on hand for help and advice and have done a fantastic job in their barn conversion.
We really enjoyed our stay and everything was provided for an excellent holiday. Very impressed and we will be recommending Fribaud Pastorale to our friends.
Had a lovely week, the barn is very comfortable and has all you need for a relaxing holiday. After watching the sunset over the fields, the stars begin to appear. Never seen so many. Then slept like a log. Wonderful.
Everywhere is easy to get to from here - Royan, St Palais, Ile d'Oleron, Ile de Re. All have great beaches.
Thank you for having us - its been fantastic. Lovely weather, lovely food, great accommodation. Coming back soon.
Roy and Josie are spot on - Roy even came to find us when we were lost!
Fribaud Paatorale Guest Book continued: What a wonderful slice of heaven! The weather has been perfect, the accommodation beautiful and our hosts superb! We will certainly be returning!
As I write this, the sun is streaming through the barn doors and its almost 8 pm. We shall be really sad to leave but are so happy that we have found such a stunning place to stay with such welcoming hosts. All in all, a great place to stay to visit the coast and inland.
A relaxing week in a beautiful region. The accommodation is so very well equipped, Josie and Roy have thought of everything. Made good use of the BBQ in the evenings. Lots of interesting places to visit and great places to eat. Great to come back to a peaceful, quiet location after a day sightseeing. Thanks Roy and Josie.
