About Patrick Freeman
Having run a successful B+B on the West coast of Ireland for 10 years, we decided to live our dream and move to France in 2006, where we fully restored a Charentaise farmhouse that we now run as La Lavande.

A peaceful retreat
This was our first gite experience and we were not disappointed. Patrick and Evelyn were great hosts and there when we needed them with some local recommedations. The setting is beautiful, so quiet and green; the gite is lovely and clean, well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed using the pool and BBQ and felt that we had enjoyed such a relaxing break.
We drove from Calais and found the journey painless - the roads are so much better than at home and the payage was worth every penny.
The gite location is remote however not too far away from local towns and we had some great days out. Our favourite was visiting St Emillion, we also enjoyed Cognac and La Rochelle.
If you are after a relaxing get away then we don't think you could go wrong with this place - we loved it!
