Beautiful pool within the surrounding gardens in a unique setting of an exquisite French hamlet. The owners of the property albeit reasonably new to the area have already acquired a wealth of knowledge of the locality. The quaint local small town of La Rochefoucauld is a real delight and if you go further afield, Angouleme is well worth a visit and enjoys a variety of high quality restaurants. You will be spoilt with a variety of choice in the area whether it's golfing, walking or relaxing.

Everything from the idyllic location in a beautiful village, to the cosy cottage with all the facilities you could need, as well as the amazing pool in your own garden. Mary and her family were extremely helpful and kind, giving us top tips for what to do in the area including recommended restaurants. We spent our time walking in the stunning countryside and national park that surrounds it, sipping wine and reading in the sunshine amid blissful peace and quiet, canoeing down the river in the evening sun, exploring French markets, and venturing out to neighboring villages to taste the amazing cuisine. It was pure bliss!! I am a vegan so the only thing I will add is that the region is famous for foie gras - a "luxury" food created by force feeding geese with metal rods until their livers swell. I HIGHLY recommend Chez Bigot - but please - stand up for the geese, and steer clear of the foie gras available in the restaurants.

The spectacular views may be the property's star attraction - amazing sunsets (and sunrises for those of us who need to get up to take the dog out) - but at a more practical level we were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the welcome offered by Wendy and Dave (and of course Archy, the French basset hound). The ground floor is more spacious than it looks in the photos and the kitchen, although not huge, has everything you need and is kitted out to an excellent standard. The shower room has also been refurbished to a high standard. The property is ideal for a couple and would also suit a family with one child. The welcome pack provided by Wendy and Dave had everything for the hungry and thirsty traveller, including a huge pan of very tasty mince which provided spag bol on the first night and a lasagne later in the week! A lot of thoughtfulness has gone into making this a really nice place to stay.
