The property is a former paper mill originally built in 1688 which has been renovated into a home for the owners and 2 gites "Le Grand Cornet" and "Le Petit Raisin" which are virtually identical. The gites share their own private driveway and car park (approx 10m x 8m). They have been renovated to provide modern facilities while at the same time retaining as much of the character as possible. All the rooms are newly furnished, spacious and comfortable. Each gite has an upstairs with 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6 (2 doubles, 1 twin) and family bathroom. Downstairs is open plan with living room, kitchen and dining area. There is a downstairs toilet and each gite has its own private patio (approx 6m x 5m) with dining table and sun loungers. NEW: A 4m plunge pool has just been installed which is shared by both gites and the owners.

Peaceful countryside location, close by is a public footpath running alongside a river with an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna. The river is popular with the local fisherman, and can be fished with a licence. Walking distance to the village of Saint Séverin which has a local SPAR supermarket, bar, bakery, pharmacy, bank with cash machine, Post Office and a newsagents. Just outside the village is an 18-hole crazy golf course and an outdoor recreation centre at Moulin de Poltrot with canoeing and tree-top zipwires. The hillside village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne 'one of the most beautiful villages in France' is a 15 minute drive away. It is well worth a visit for its famous monolithic church and a beautiful tree-lined square with cafes and restaurants and its river beach. A short 15 minute drive from the property is a 9 hole FFG golf course, set in peaceful countryside with its own bar/restaurant and tennis courts. The market towns of Riberac, Verteillac and Chalais are all within a 30 minutes drive. Brantome the 'Venice of Perigord' is a 50 minutes drive away and makes for an interesting day out. There is a Benedictine Abbey, excellent restaurants and bars and with a beautiful river running right through it. Nearby are the underground caves at Villars and Brantome Police Horses and Friends. The capital town of Angouleme is a 45 minutes drive away and has a wide range of shops and museums to visit. Just outside is Nautilus an indoor leisure centre with swimming pools and slides. Bergerac is an hour drive away, and the old town has narrow cobbled streets and half-timbered houses. You can take an hour long boat trip on an old 'gabarres' (flat bottomed boat). The Bordeaux, Bergerac and Cognac vineyards are all within a 90 minutes drive. Many vineyards offer tastings and the opportunity to buy first rate wines at the cellar door. In Cognac, Martell, Hennessy (includes a boat ride on the Charente river) and Remy Martin (includes a train ride tour around the estate) offer tours of their cellars/estates. Also well worth visiting is the pretty hilltop town of Saint-Emilion and Montbazillac.

"Delightful holiday oasis"

We are in the middle of our stay here. Sadly we are only here for a week. It is really excellent in so many ways. Location: rich and lovely countryside, ideal spot near a stream with ponds and walks. … More

"An excellent place to stay, great quality accommodation in beautiful surroundings"

We stayed for a week whilst visiting friends who live in the area, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The gite is a converted paper mill – it is unbelievable to think that it was built in 1688! Everything … More
