Beautiful villa within easy reach to all the local amenities supermarkets restaurants and lots more

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a lovely welcome from the owners we got a bit lost in the village but with a phone call soon got sorted infact the owner cycled down to show us the way

We were a family of 12 with ages from 2 years to 74 years we got sorted out with rooms that really suited our family group

every thing was there in the villa

toys to keep the children happy plus adults that had a lovely time some behaving like children at times ,!,! ....

We have stayed in many villas in France but this was by far our nicest

We knew the area well as we once owned a small house near by in Aubeterre sur drome that bought back many happy memories

To sum it up lovely villa in a lovely part of France with helpful owners

Beautiful swimming pool that we spent a lot of time in the weather was really warm so it was difficult to keep the children away from

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of nine people spread across 3 generations although still room for more. Plenty to do onsite table tennis, boule etc and of course the pool where the temperature of the water reached 29 degrees earlier in the week. Very hot there to start with so the shade under the trees was most welcome, there is plenty of room to spread out if you want a quiet spot. Missing the morning walk (ok a couple of times the car!) into the village to collect croissants, pain au chocolat etc. The owners Michel and Joelle very attentive without being intrusive.

Delightful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

As a family group of 9 adults, we really enjoyed our stay at La Marteille. The attractive house with its pretty grounds is a good size with enough space for everyone to eat together, or find a quiet spot if they prefer some solitude.

The pool is lovely; the weather was exceptionally hot while we were there, but because of its thick walls the house remains cool.

The hosts were helpful and friendly without being intrusive.

We particularly enjoyed swimming in the excellent lake at La Jemaye, canoeing from Brantome, visiting the gorgeous town of St Emilion and being able to stroll to the local village for croissants.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Excellent. Beautiful position; well equipped; charming and helpful owners nextdoor.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fairly comprehensive group of our family gathered for the 50th Birthday of our eldest daughter who lives about 10km from La Marteille. The French part of the family came over for the occasional meal, and a party was had at theirs. All went well.

I would however add that Home & Away themselves could have been more helpful; I found them tricky to deal with and rather "bureaucratic", but this was solved by my contacting the owners themselves. "Home & Away" can count themselves lucky to have been entrusted with this charming property; I am not sure I would wish to use such an agency again.

Covering the "tips", 1) the listing was fairly accurate

2) the property was clean & well maintained

3) The owner did provide excellent customer service

4) I probably would recommend the property to friends & relatives

5) We liked the markets at Chalais & Riberac, and the younger grandchildren loved the big play area by Nabinaud, and

Aubeterre has lots to offer, and is especially nice out of season. A good new restaurant "Le Cochon Prieure" in the lower part of Aubeterre, and a newish good Creperie just outside Chenaud

Superbe Gite idéalement placé

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à la Marteille. Nous étions nombreux (11 adultes/7enfants) et la capacité du gite nous a très largement permis de passer 4 jours grâce a sa grande capacité d'accueil. Toute l'équipe était ravie des différentes commodités du gite : chambres spacieuses, plusieurs salle de bain, cadre authentique, piscine protégé pour les enfants, nombreux jeux extérieur (balançoire, table de ping pong ...), barbecue. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et arrangeants sans être intrusifs. La localisation en pleine campagne est top, le cadre est relaxant, idéalement situé à coté de Riberac avec son marché à ne pas manquer. Le gite est également situé à coté d'une ferme avec de nombreux animaux pour le plus grand plaisir des petits. Je recommande ce gite dans lequel nous avons passé un excellent moment.
