we really enjoyed our stay at Nadeau, the cottage has been renovated very thoughtfully and is a peaceful relaxing space. The bed was really comfortable and the light and spacious kitchen had all facilities needed. Like others have said you definitely need a car to drive to attractions but also can walk/cycle right from the door in lovely countryside. We particularly enjoyed the "Voie Vert" reclaimed railway track that is now a walking and cycling track of 34 kms that runs close by the area from Cerat in the south to Brabieux St Hiliare in north. The Owner Sofie was very flexible and friendly responding quickly to any queries, especially important as we booked only a few days before arriving.
The bungalow is well set out and very nicely appointed. Everything you could need is provided.
Unfortunately the weather for our 2 weeks was awful so little use could be made of the pool but when at "home" it was a very pleasant environment to be in.
The walk recommended is very good, long enough to stretch your legs and burn off a bit of lunch, but not so long to as to become a route march and countryside all around is beautiful.
Although only my wife and I were there, so many toys games and activities are provided that children would be easily kept entertained either inside or out. My brother-in-law is a wheelchair user and would have no problem at all in the bungalow especially with the large walk or roll in shower in the family bathroom which is huge.
In all this was a lovely setting for a holiday in France with easy access to the Charente and the Dordogne albeit some summer weather would have added to our own enjoyment, La Bell Aube cannot be blamed for that!
