Beautiful pool within the surrounding gardens in a unique setting of an exquisite French hamlet. The owners of the property albeit reasonably new to the area have already acquired a wealth of knowledge of the locality. The quaint local small town of La Rochefoucauld is a real delight and if you go further afield, Angouleme is well worth a visit and enjoys a variety of high quality restaurants. You will be spoilt with a variety of choice in the area whether it's golfing, walking or relaxing.

We managed to eat outside every day and for every meal even though the mornings were a little cool! We enjoyed some very relaxing pool days and even when we went out to visit the surrounding region we hurried back so that we could use the pool during the afternoon. Places within easy reach and worth visiting are Angouleme, Limoges, Perigeux and Brantome; we went as far as Bordeaux which, although a long drive, is well worth it! Chasseneuil has all the shops you need and we were spoilt for choice as to which boulangerie to cycle to each morning to get our croissants and baguette. A fantastic holiday in a lovely region in a delightful house helped by the friendliness of the owner's agent.

The gite is beautiful. Wonderfully decorated and furnished and was a delightful place to stay. Aline is a lovely host and made us feel so welcome. I can very easily recommend Malvy to anyone wanting to find a most relaxing and amazing place to stay.
