The bungalow is well set out and very nicely appointed. Everything you could need is provided.
Unfortunately the weather for our 2 weeks was awful so little use could be made of the pool but when at "home" it was a very pleasant environment to be in.
The walk recommended is very good, long enough to stretch your legs and burn off a bit of lunch, but not so long to as to become a route march and countryside all around is beautiful.
Although only my wife and I were there, so many toys games and activities are provided that children would be easily kept entertained either inside or out. My brother-in-law is a wheelchair user and would have no problem at all in the bungalow especially with the large walk or roll in shower in the family bathroom which is huge.
In all this was a lovely setting for a holiday in France with easy access to the Charente and the Dordogne albeit some summer weather would have added to our own enjoyment, La Bell Aube cannot be blamed for that!
We were two couples and the layout of the gite suited us perfectly. It is a pretty conversion and was also well equipped. The welcome pack of basic foodstuffs was much appreciated. The private garden is very secluded although, due to the weather, we were not able to make much use of the pool which is well maintained. Jan and Janine were helpful but unobtrusive and they supplied us with logs when the weather meant that evenings at the gite were rather cool and the wood burning stove heats the large rooms up well. A car is necessary as there are no shops, bars or restaurants within walking distance but the area itself has interesting walks if you fancy a stroll. A very enjoyable stay
