The house is tastefully furnished,very clean and with everything you could possibly need . Aline and Cedric are charming hosts, there if you need them and unseen if you don't. Cedric explained the history of the old distillery and island. They live in a wonderful location with charming villages all around and great walks for the dog . The river at the bottom of the garden is full of wildlife , beavers ducks swans and fish. We will return one summer to sample the island house to swim in the river !

There is plenty of space for everyone to find a corner on your own if you so wish although at the same time being able to enjoy family time without feeling cramped. The outside space is great for young and old alike. This is indeed somewhere you can stay at any time of the year and feel comfortable in. We were given excellent customer service by the owners who were approachable when asked, but at the same time discreet and mindful of giving us privacy. In particular, it was great to have good kitchen equipment to use as I often find at other holiday homes this is what can let the property down. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again when in the Charente, and indeed contemplating a stay again in 2017!
