The Gite was superbly fitted out and an excellent base for a week exploring the Charente, with a great pool, in which to cool off on the many hot afternoons we experienced. Lisa and Darren were more than helpful hosts and could not have done more to help us relax into the traffic free French way of life in this beautiful region. There are many markets and idyllic villages to explore within 25km and Confolens with its twice weekly market only 12km away, has a couple of excellent restaurants/hotels in which to experience a great lunch de jour as the market draws to a close.
I took our 2 children (14 & 3) to experience life on a farm. The gite was very comfortable and the environment was friendly. The children were encouraged to help feed the horses and sheep which they loved. The little one found the ducklings fascinating and cute.
The surrounding district has some interesting castles, towns and sights. Other attractions further away (and more expensive) are also available for older children and adults.
The host family are very helpful and kind. We highly recommend this property for those looking for a quiet farming experience.
