About this location
The Poitou-Charentes region
The Charente is situated in South West France and is known to be the second sunniest region in France. It is steeped in history and has wonderful countryside with the famous beautiful toffee coloured Limousin cattle supplying the best beef around.
There is also an abundance of markets, festivals, wine tasting and restaurants around so you really will be spoilt for choice knowing how you will spend your time here. Further away there is the Medieval large theme park Puy de fou, Futuroscope at Poitiers and Vallee de Singes (gorilla park).
Montemboeuf is situated just 3 kms away with a small supermarket, bank, chemist, post office, butchers, bakers, tennis courts and bars and a little further away there is Chasseneuil-sur-Bonnieure with larger supermarkets, small boutiques, bars and restaurants and a cinema. The historic city of Angoulême is approx 25 mins drive and a little further, the cognac region.
The lacs de la Charente are only 13 mins drive and the music festival at Confolens normally takes place Aug/Sept each year. The chateaux at La Rochefoucauld is well worth a visit with a chance to dress up in medieval costumes. There is a water park/leisure centre at Angoulême.
The village of Oradour-sur-Glane is only an hours drive with it's massacred village taken place on 10 June 1944 during World War II. The town of Rochechouart (the country of the météorite) is 25 mins drive near the border of Charente and Haute-Vienne. All of which can be searched on the internet for more details.

"Perfectly situated property , comprehensive amenities for the whole family . Friendly and Helpful owners"
Garry and Deana have a wonderful traditional granite and stone property , copious land to enjoy and wonderfully proportioned rooms with all mod cons . Property has been renovated to a very high standard and will appeal to couples and large families . Wonderful pool and large dining table inside and out . Perfectly quiet in a lovely rural spot yet 5 minutes from local spa shop and 15 minutes from a mid size supermarket . Sat TV and pool table and washing facilities . Friendly assistance available from the owners and great privacy . Value for money height of season and unlikely to match similar size anywhere in the region . Many thanks to Garry and Deana for a well prepared and thought out rental we recommend the property to any Brits or visitors from other countries best wishes stu and Cathryn
So glad that you were able to utilise all the outdoor facilities at Les Deux Pins also taking time out to explore the surrounding area. Hope to see you all again one day.

"A truly beautiful location & fantastic hosts"
6 of us in total stayed at Les Deux Pins - my wife & I, 2 children (10 yrs & 4 yrs), and in-laws/grandparents. We all had a fantastic time. The location is very rural and relatively remote, but with … More
Thank you for your comments and suggestions. We are always open to receiving feedback and will definately look into the comments you have raised. There are stairgates available on request for the younger visitors and I agree wooden floors can be a bit slippery with just socks on so extra care should be taken when walking around especially when using the stairs. Maybe there is a product which can be utilised in this case otherthan carpets which don't normally exist here in France (only on rare ocassions). We will look to placing a rug adhesive in the lounge or even discard the rug altogether. Flies can be a problem sometimes in France and so maybe by purchasing a 'electronic wall mounted zapper' may help the situation but is not a problem all summer round. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here and look forward to seeing you all next year.

"Superb family retreat!"
We were immediately wowed by the location and size of this superbly renovated farmhouse. The accommodation is first class and the friendly owners had thought of everything to ensure our comfort. The large pool was the main focus of our holiday and there was plenty of room around it to relax. The extensive land with the property gave our younger ones plenty of freedom while keeping them safe and secure. The tree swing was one of their favourites and just one example of how everyone was catered for while fitting in with the charm and character of the place. For the older ones, the table tennis and the pool table were used semi competitively!! The house is very rural with fantastic views and no neighbouring holiday makers making us truly feel at home! We mainly relaxed and entertained ourselves at the property as we were so comfortable, yet there are plenty of local villages worth exploring. We particularly enjoyed the man-made beach at the lake only 20 mins drive away. Surrounded by woodland with a fantastic restaurant/snack bar and gently sloping into the cooling lake this beach easily rivals any coastal beach. The kids also enjoyed dressing up as knights/princesses at the chateau of La Rochfaucauld, and the adults enjoyed the wines of Saint Sornin. All in all something for everyone and a sweet taste of rural France.
We are always delighted when our guests enjoy their stay with us. We try to accommodate their every need, making sure that they are happy whilst giving them the privacy and relaxation that they came here for. We are glad that you had a good time and thank you for looking after the house and leaving it so tidy. Makes our lives so much easier.

"Fantastic property, Stunning location, Helpful owners."
Just came back from a fantastic holiday at Les Deux Pins. The house was amazing it had everything we needed although the addition of air con in the bedrooms would have made our stay even more enjoyabl… More
It was a pleasure to have such nice guests and that they enjoyed our house. The air-conditioning in the pool room does spoil you a bit when the temperatures are very hot and air-con in the bedrooms would be better than the fans supplied but at this moment in time, the cost to install would be too expensive for us for the size of the house. Maybe in the future it could be a possibility.
