A famously fabulous location with lots to do.
The 200 year old gite includes all house linen and towelling, plus high speed internet wifi, a welcome pack - so no extra's from us. Please beware many other gites charge cleaning and towel & bed linen costs in addition to the advertised rates. We do not.
The superb mid views from gite's balcony across to the river and park is wonderful. The main bedroom, kitchen and lounge views are to the Abbey and town.
With two lounges, (ground & second floor) you can enjoy the day and evening as you wish.
The two 1st floor large bedrooms both have twin beds and share a central shower/bidet/toilet.
The ground floor bedroom also has two twin beds and it's own 'shower' en-suite which is also great if you have difficulty getting about.
We've added a couple of child stairs / door gates just in case you need them with the children and we do ask you as responsible parents to supervise them when near stairs, windows, doors and the garden.
We have both on and off road parking for two cars.
Like many places in France the riverside gated small open garden is on the other side of the small road which faces the property. It has a small fairly secluded sun bathing area, large table and 6 chairs (which is where we mainly eat) with some sun loungers. There are some great views into the town, abbey and park. For added security we have added a gate to the steps leading to the river.
The 200 year old property takes the morning rising sun twinkling through the trees in the park opposite and the property backs into the rock. During the summer the sun continues until late afternoon. The house has all modern facilities, very well equipped and is just a few minutes a very short walk flat from the town.
The video is the local mill which is a only approx. 300m away and as you enter the historic town which has flat styled cobbled streets, shops, restaurants, Abbey and centre village which is surrounded by water.
Touring from Brantome is fairly easy and mobile coverage in the main is pretty good (provider dependent of course). We have all the main types of shops and restaurants you would need and two garages. Using Brantome for a hub is also easy to access other great places. Buses run between Angouleme and Perigueux railway stations via Brantome at very cheap prices. From 2018 Brantome has a small river beach, we have communal swimming available at St Martial de Vallete which is an 'all year round pool' with other facilities, plus swimming and pools at other locations. We will supply a list pools on completion of order via our website client access page. We often swim in the river opposite our house.
Brantome is set in the Dordogne, part of French Aquitaine region and a good location to have a fantastic holiday or use as a base. A favourite tourist place there are plenty of seasonal activities for those who require, just relax or tour to view the many historic local areas. Out of season Brantome and the surrounding areas are quieter with fewer places open. Wherever you stay feedback always talks about the ambiance, charm and romance of Brantome and many visitors return because of this very reason. Like everywhere in France, peak seasons can be busy and August is the National holiday month due to long days and weather.
