A hidden delight

5 of 5
A real 'Get Away From It All' well appointed gite situated in a delightful hamlet with welcoming, knowledgeable & helpful hosts. The pool is a real plus set in a gorgeous garden, hard to drag ourselves away to explore the local area but we did manage it venturing into La Rochefoucald and Angouleme, both worth visiting. There are Chateaus a many to explore in the local area. We can highly recommend this gem situated in the heart of the Charente.
