About Tony Clark

We, Ann and Tony, bought the property in February 0f 2017. Previously Tony worked off shore when the oil prices were good and Ann was a practicing midwife. Our 4 sons have remained in the UK and visit often. Chez Freddie had been successfully ran as a gite for many years prior. Since moving over from the UK we have been busy revamping rooms and decor, adding a large family size BBQ and new pool and garden furniture.

We brought our 3 small friendly dogs and 4 cats with us. That was a long journey !

We reside on site but are gated away from the rental property. Always here if you need us. Out of sight if you don't.

Peaceful retreat at Cherigne

  • 5 of 5

5 Star sums up our stay at Chez Freddie. This large, very comfortable furnished house was just what we needed for a restful week in France. The house comes with everything you need from an iron to a DVD player and our hosts Ianthe and Jean-Me made us most welcome.

The large pool and garden we found ideal for peaceful relaxation.

Can't recommend this little piece of French 'heaven' enough!

Within 30 minutes’ drive there are a number of historic sites, zoological parks, museums, riding stables and golf courses. At Melle you can visit the 9th century silver mines, the ‘triad’ of Romanesque churches, or the themed arboretum.

Within 1 hour’s drive, the Marais Poitevin offers trips along the maze of canals, Saintes offers Roman remains, Mediaeval churches, and boat trips on the Charente, while at Cognac you can visit the warehouses of the major Cognac producers. At Poitiers, Futuroscope is a vast theme park with attractions to suit all ages. The Atlantic coast has miles of sandy beaches, and the historic town of La Rochelle, with its fine port and aquarium.
