- Chez Briand is strictly no smoking. Pets I am afraid are not allowed. We tried in the past but it seems too many people have allergies these days.We try to keep the cottage to the highest standard and ask our guests to respect the house. WE do not charge for cleaning but ask our guests to leave the property, clean and tidy . If you have an early departure or just plain don't fancy cleaning, please let me know and I can arrange for extra cleaning support to come in. This is an extra charge and details can be given on request. Apart from this, common sense in gear, relax and have a great relaxing holiday.

About Liz Trunkfield
Jeff and I moved here at the beginning of 2004 from the UK. We decided to do something we have always dreamed of and that is to live in France. We both left demanding jobs and set about renovating the house and gite. Great fun and a huge amount of work! But we got there and now have a lovely home and a popular gite. We are in the country and so look forward to our guests arriving and meeting them all.
Liz Trunkfield purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Liz Trunkfield chose Val-des-Vignes
We chose this property as it was something we never thought we could possibly have owned in the UK. It sits in just under 2 acres and has views to die for. Chateauneuf sur Charente is really what persuaded us this was the right area for us. Pretty French town and the river runs through it. It was originally the home of the local vineyard owner and even today his son tends the vines which surround the property. The house has amazing views and the scenery especially from the upper floors, really persuaded us.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we first saw the house, the original features were well hidden but we could see the potential. We renovated to keep it very much a beautiful French house but with good plumbing!
