About Caroline Williams
I live here with my husband and two cats. We both worked for an airline and decided to retire here and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Charente Maritime. We thoroughly enjoy meeting people and love nothing more than sharing our home and the beautiful region that we are so lucky to live in.
Caroline Williams purchased this Cottage in 2004
What makes this Cottage unique
Although we advertise that there is a shared pool with the owners, most of the time you will find yourselves alone.
Pool / Spa
Very beautiful gite and tastefully decorated!
Spotlessly clean with great kitchen for cooking in and a fantastic area next to the pool for dining with amazing views.
Amazing and beautiful Gite in a truly stunning setting!
Caroline and Chris were the perfect hosts and deserve great credit for creating an amazing Gite with everything you could wish for! 'Le Nook' is beautifully decorated and is in a stunning setting in the middle of the rolling French countryside.
I would recommend 'Le Nook' to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay. The pool and surrounding gardens wouldn't look out of place at the Chelsea Flower Show and reflect the care and attention put into them by Caroline & Chris.
Thanks for a truly brilliant and relaxing holiday!

We found the perfect place to relax, unwind and soak up everything good this beautiful region of France has to offer. Le Nook is both quaint & chic, a literally idyllic base with stunning views across the French countryside. Hosts Caroline & Chris are lovely and have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. The property is conscientiously maintained from the lovingly tendered flora & fauna, to the spotlessly clean pool, bbq & outside eating area. The accommodation is also spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with charming personal touches such as fresh flowers in the kitchen and cheese & wine on arrival. Cannot recommend this place enough, thank you for a wonderful stay.
Panoramic views and a wonderful setting
We really enjoyed our 11 days here. The property is well described on the website, though perhaps understating the beautiful garden which has more roses, geraniums and petunias than anywhere we've seen outside RHS Wisley.
The accommodation is compact but entirely sufficient and well equipped. A door from the bedroom to the pool area would shorten the route from kitchen to the magnificent shaded eating area but the exercise does no harm!
Expiremont is not at the heart of tourist France which means that places of interest involve a little more travelling but the up side of this is that the places to visit are not overrun with fellow Brits and are authentic France. We were certainly not disappointed.
Chris and Caroline are excellent hosts with a good knowledge of where to go and what to do and, within the limits of sharing the same site, are sensitive to giving us the free run of the place.
Peaceful Rural Setting
Very charming and helpful hosts, quiet and peaceful setting with lovely views from the pretty rear garden. Bathroom a bit compact, but otherwise accommodation well equipped with comfortable bed.
No hesitation in recommending.
Awesome gite and lovely hosts
We stayed at Le Nook for 2 weeks and we had a lovely time. The gite is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay. The pool area has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and has plenty of comfortable seating . It is the ideal place to relax.
Caroline and Chris were very welcoming and the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they were there whenever we needed them. We honestly cannot think of sufficient words to praise them enough.
If you are thinking of visiting this area then you must stay at Le Nook.
We hope to return!
