There is plenty of space for everyone to find a corner on your own if you so wish although at the same time being able to enjoy family time without feeling cramped. The outside space is great for young and old alike. This is indeed somewhere you can stay at any time of the year and feel comfortable in. We were given excellent customer service by the owners who were approachable when asked, but at the same time discreet and mindful of giving us privacy. In particular, it was great to have good kitchen equipment to use as I often find at other holiday homes this is what can let the property down. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again when in the Charente, and indeed contemplating a stay again in 2017!

The gite was decorated for Christmas, warm and cosy when we arrived with a welcoming fire burning in the wood burner… we couldn’t have asked for a better welcome! Nicky and Richard were always available to help and provide advice about day trips and information about the surrounding area. They kindly offered to light the pizza oven so we could have a pizza party one evening. The gite was great for our big group: spacious, clean, comfortable and filled with extra treats like toys for the children to play with. The games room was a big hit too. The layout of the complex meant we had our privacy despite other guests staying at the same time. A definite recommend.
