My partner and I have just returned home after spending a week in Francis and Veronique’s apartment and I can honestly say it was a wonderful experience. The apartment is amazing, beautifully decorated, spacious, light and airy and extremely comfortable. We always looked forward to returning to the comfort of the apartment after an evening out, when we usually watched a movie or two on DVD before retiring to bed. The beds are huge and extremely comfortable, we both slept like logs every night. The balcony is enormous and wraps right around the building. There are fresh strawberries, mint and thyme growing in pots on the balcony where I thoroughly enjoyed my reading my book with an afternoon coffee. When we arrived there were fresh flowers on the table, wine, milk and orange juice in the fridge and a basket of lovely walnuts. We opened the door one morning to find a lovely basket of fresh mushrooms – what a lovely touch. We made a delicious mushroom omelette for breakfast. We didn’t get to meet Francis, but Veronique and their son Antoine met us when we arrived and made us feel very welcome right from the start. Veronique is a lovely warm person and Antoine is a lovely handsome and charming young man, it was a pleasure to meet them. The location of the apartment is terrific – only about a five minute walk into town and there are lots of eating places right on your doorstep. Booking the apartment was easy and communication with Francis was excellent from start to finish. I would highly recommend this beautiful apartment and would love to return in the future.
Thank you Francis, Veronique and Antoine for being so welcoming and friendly, it made our holiday very special.

We've just returned from a fabulous week at La Chenaie. The spacious house is utterly beautiful and decorated with touches of luxury and all the facilities you need for the perfect holiday. We were a large family group of adults and young children and found the layout a dream... with the 3 bedrooms upstairs all being family rooms with double & single beds in each and 2 double bedrooms downstairs. Two sitting rooms with TVs downstairs including a hugely spacious open plan kitchen / dining room leading out onto a beautiful huge covered terrace with another large dining and sitting area overlooking the blissful pool, perfect in sunshine or rain and where we spent most of our time. The 42 acres of rambling woodland and open fields include a fabulous archery range with moving targets, childrens woodland playground with swings, see saw and zip wire, hammock, badminton net... There's also a games room, bikes to borrow and if all that wasn't enough to keep us thrillingly occupied, the children (and grownups!) were also entertained with rides on the quad bike (supervised by the ever accommodating Glenn). Glenn and Roma are really lovely hosts, living in the gite next to the main house they were very friendly and happy to chat and show us around and be on call if needed (the archery lessons were fab) but also kept discreetly out of the way to give privacy and make you feel that you really do have the house to yourselves.
When we did tear ourselves away from the house there is loads to do and see in the local area... we visited the fascinating cave dwellings at Grotte Du Roc de Cazelle and the beautiful village of Brantome.
Thank you Glenn & Roma, it really was a perfect holiday and we can't wait to come back!
