What a fabulous holiday!

5 of 5
We stayed in Nathalie’s gite for 10 nights and had a fantastic time! The gite was great, exceptionally presented and had everything we needed, and more…… Our kids loved the outside space, from the swimming pool to the swings to the sand pit. Our kids loved playing with Clovis & Scarlett, not forgetting Curly! Nathalie is the perfect hostess, simply beyond our expectations. If you are looking to stay around this area, just book with Nathalie you won’t be disappointed.

A little piece of heaven here on earth.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Le Petit Bijou. A beautifully restored traditional French cottage with heated outdoor swimming pool. Nestled in the countryside it was the perfect escape from a very busy stress filled life. The clear night skies enabled much star gazing either from the comfort of the pool or by lying on the ground looking up. The weather was superb and we enjoyed visiting La Vallee des Singes, to see the monkeys and Apes in acre upon acre of beautiful grounds. Verteuil sur Charente was a beautiful town to visit and especially Le Moulin de Verteuil where we had a smashing lunch practising our French. The staff here were courteous and extremely helpful even telling my husband that he looked like James Martin.....I wish he could cook like him too! This little gem is for people who wish to escape from everyday life and enjoy a complete break from computers, internet and tv. It is very rural and there is an abundance of wildlife to see, we cannot recommend it highly enough.
