The accommodation is clean, spacious and comfortable with plenty of outdoor space. The owners are helpful and welcoming, with plenty of ideas if you ask where to visit. We will certainly recommend this property to friends. Good for couples or families.

The inside is a wonderful contemporary surprise, with modern living at its very best. We have just returned from a lovely 8 day autumn break. The owners are charming, nothing is too much trouble, the grounds are lovely to walk round. Inside the gites there is everything you could wish for with high quality fixtures and fittings. The beds are massive and so comfortable. The welcome pack is a lovely touch and very appreciated. The whole house was immaculately clean. The village is tiny and very quiet, it has an amazing boulangerie. We've visited France for over 20 years, it is the best gite we have ever stayed in. There is lots to see and do locally, Cognac, Jarnac, Angouleme, La Rochelle, Talmont ..

Great having a swimming pool in the garden. It has been a pleasure to recommend Chez Meunier to family and friends.
