The house is large with good sized bedrooms and modern bathrooms. The games room is great with darts, pool and table football (and air-con if it gets too hot) as well as toys for young guests. Well equipped, large kitchen. The house is in a rural setting, the nearest small supermarket is about 5k away and there is a hypermarket in Ruffec as well as a weekly market. Nice outdoor space with gas BBQ. Verteuil sur Charente and Nanteuil en Vallee are both very pretty with good restaurants. Further afield Oradour sur Glane, Tusson, Saintes, Jarnac and Cognac are nice days out. Mossy (the owner) is very friendly and looks after the pool and garden.
Eveything about this property is magical. As you descend up the tree lined driveway you know this place is going to be special. The house on arrival is stunning. Exactly what you see in the pictures, but so much better. The house is light and airy and had plenty of room for the 15 people in our party. It was wonderful to all be able to sit and eat together. So spacious! People can go off and do their own thing (if at times you need a 'time out').
The pool area is a great size with sun loungers and the pool was perfect. We had every pool inflatable imaginable and it took all of them with room for more!
Every evening we ate alfresco with a great BBQ at our disposal.
The kitchen is also fully equipped and we made use of this!
The house and surroundings are laid out perfectly and what I loved is that every day you discovered something new; a cupboard full of games, or a drawer full of maps for things to explore.
The games room was a god send for the children (mainly the adults).
The countryside is beautiful and amazing for quiet country walks.
Mike and Emma (the guardians) were incredibly warm and welcoming and looked after us extremely well without being intrusive and were on hand if we needed them.
Booking the house was a simple process and always received timely communications from the owner
This house is remote and you will need a car. Supermarkets are 10-15 minutes away.
Every one of our party adored this house and it has given us a lifetime of very fine memories.
