If peace and quiet in the beautiful French countryside is what you are looking for Gite du Porche is the place for you. Set in a sleepy French village this old farmhouse is a bit of history. The house is well equipped and comfortable and the owners are extremely helpful. It wasn’t clear on the website that they also live in the property but they are very keen to be as unobtrusive as possible. A great place to stay in la belle France
What a wonderful holiday! The property is perfect for a young family. The mezzanine level for the kids was perfect. The low ceiling means nothing to a 6 & 8 year old! They had "their" space. The beds are comfortable and even in 36 degree heat the house was cool. All the facilities we required were there and if there was an issue, Christine was always very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Always there, but never intrusive.
The garden was amazing. The pool superb. The hosts were great. Christine was a pleasure to meet along with her family. A nice bonus for my children was a the couple of days when Christine's grandchildren were staying with her. It was lovely to see them all play together, even without a common language.
There is so much to explore and see in the local area. Angouleme, Cognac, a train trip to Bordeaux, the Roman baths at Cassinomagus and the waterpark Nautilus near Angouleme. But, if you wanted, you could just sit back and relax by the pool.
