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.
We wanted a tranquil and peaceful break, to give us time to recoup and recharge after a hectic year. This house allowed us to do just that in abundance.
It's beautiful peaceful riverside setting, extensive surrounding fields and woodlands make it a restful haven.
The house has been skilfully renovated and equipped to a very high standard, its roomy and spaceious while feeling comfortable and homely.
With the added bonus of hot days and warm evenings this meant that we barely strayed away from the swimming pool, terrace and the view of the Vienne.
