This lovely shabby chic cottage has an official Tourist Board rating of 3 stars. It is BEST FOR A COUPLE OR A FAMILY WITH TWO SMALLER CHILDREN


Upstairs there is a family suite of two adjoining bedrooms (no door between) with master bedroom with king size bed and adjoining room with a comfy sofa and two small single beds. There is an en suite shower room off the second bedroom.

We are well equipped for children but this is not your "cheap and cheerful" venue, everyone has privacy and comfort and with only 3 gites there is plenty of room for everyone to relax but make friend if they wish.

This is a chilled out yet quietly sophisticated retreat. Perfect to relax and rejuvenate by the pool or to discover all this region has to offer.

The location is at the pinacle of the "golden triangle of the Charente" equidistant between Angouleme and Cognac and 3 minutes from the market town of Rouillac with all amenities.

Review from this year:

Rural idyll....‚ÄĚLovely mix of guests staying there which seems to be the norm in this chilled out yet quietly sophisticated retreat. Gite was well appointed and done with a simple and cool taste. Steph, our hostess, cooked superb and good value food when we couldn't be bothered to do so and we ended up chatting on the terrace to the other guests until the early hours. Can't recommend this highly enough, but keep it under your hat.......
