We just love it. Allie and Brian are the best hosts you could ever meet,and it is a honour we now class them as friends. The village of Bassac is just minutes away with two great restaurants but as the Gite has a great kitchen we like to cook and sit by the river watching the kingfishers eating our dinner. The garden is fully enclosed so very safe for young children and dogs which are made very welcome. We can't rate this place enough just love it. We will be back next year for sure.

The owners Jan and Janine are very friendly and helpful, providing us with fresh veg from their garden, games for the pool and milk when we ran out! But they're not intrusive, just there if you need them. We visited Aubetterre sur Dronne and Jonzac (both lovely places), went kayaking at Montbron, to the lakes at Montguyon and Jonzac and to Futuroscope (a bit of a drive but we'd been before and wanted to go again!), but were more than happy to be at the gite and in the pool for a lot of the time :) The local supermarkets are about a 10-15 minute drive away and are so much better than Sainsburys or Tesco! We would highly recommend La Grange for a peaceful, relaxing time away in beautiful surroundings.

Everything about our stay was fantastic, the beautiful house and grounds, the glorious weather, the fantastic pool and not forgetting the lovely chickens! I would return in a heartbeat and if I win the lottery this weekend I might just move to Cognac as it is such a lovely area. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! You were the perfect hosts and I am so very glad we got to stay at your amazing home.
