Stunning location & property - highly recommended
Absolutely stunning holiday property. We rented this house for 4 couples, two of which had babies. The location is breathtaking and surrounding countryside idealic. The house itself couldnt be more accomodating! It is beautifully decorated and caters for everyone, from baby equipment to adult drinking games. Couldnt fault the house at all :) one suggestion to make stay truelly perfect would be provide guests with the basics like tea and coffee when they arrive as you truelly are isolated if arriving late :) But other than that spot on. Will definately be returning
Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at La Ferme and a big thank you to you and your party for leaving the house so beautifully clean.
We look forward to welcoming you back here or to our family friendly apartment in Spain. We will make sure you have tea & coffee etc for your arrival.
Although the house seems isolated there is a large supermarket and bakers plus pizza takeaway only 5 minutes away. We offer our guests an arrivals provisions service which can be anything from a few emergency items to a full fridge.
Spectacular location and superb accommodation
Our family of 5 and my parents have just enjoyed the most wonderful holiday at La Ferme. The views from the house were far reaching and spectacular. It was lovely to wander down the lanes doing a bit of wildlife spotting. We saw lots of birds of prey; black kites, sparrowhawks and buzzards were just a few, as well as beautiful butterflies, beetles and moths. We even spotted a beech marten clambering in the fig tree just outside the front door. The house itself was spacious, well-equipped, well-maintained and very clean on arrival. Its stays wonderfully cool, even on very hot days. And the pool,..wow, we were spoilt!! By far the best we've had at a holiday property, it was huge. And despite being out in the country you are really close to amenities; the supermarche is just 5 minutes away and there are lots of good restaurants close by. Finally, Caroline and William were delightful to deal with; thanks to them both for sharing their wonderful house with us.
Thank you Jill for the kind review of your stay at La Ferme. We are always delighted to learn our guests have had a great holiday. Also a big thank you to Steve and the rest of your family for been such excellent guests.
I was looking for somewhere special to take my partner for her birthday
and found this lovely house at a bargain price for the 2 of us for a week June/July. I had visited the Charente several years before and really loved it. I was very impressed with La Ferme, it is very well presented with lots of attention to detail. The stylish master bedroom was large and the king sized bed very comfortable. The location and views are stunning, we had the pool to ourselves on the days we used it. It was large and lovely and clean again with l great views over the countryside.
The owner was very helpful booking dinner at a nearby Chateau for me, organising breakfast for our first morning and providing a long list of suggestions for our week plus a nice bottle of wine on our arrival. We would recommend the Chateau in Chalais for a meal and enjoyed a day canoeing on the nearby river. Aubeterre is nearby and very picturesque,with a range of nice places to eat, the Hotel du France was one we liked, we went to a concert in the monolithic church which was very atmospheric. We will certainly be returning and would like to thank Caroline & William for using thier lovely home and for helping make it a special week for us
My husband and I stayed at La Ferme last year and really loved the house and the area. We returned this year with friends for 2 weeks. They were as charmed by the house and surrounding countryside as we were.
The house is in a wonderful location overlooking lovely views and is surrounded by fields and woodland. The pool is large and very clean.
the house is spacious with very good sized bedooms. Our bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. La Ferme has been beautifully decorated and there was everything we could possibly need. It is the nicest rental properrty we have stayed in.
We would thoroughly recommend the house and hope to return in the future
I submitted a review today for property 63488 but think I may have made a mistake with my email address (used Uk instead of .com) is this a problem? the owner was so helpful and the house so lovely I would like my review published so others may enjoy it as we did.
We had the most fantastic trip. The house is certainly in the most idyllic spot with those stunning views and that rural feel. I can't believe how fast the weeks flew by! You really have done a lovely job with the house and we couldn't have been happier there, the refurbishment is so elegant and the house was so well equipped it meant we felt very at home.
