The genuine Mongolian Yurt, set about 150m from the house and 50m from one another. Decorated with a homely French twist and its own private little set up, fully furnished with king size bed, cupboards, seats etc with a compost loo and a solar shower. In a shared kitchen area, there are full cooking facilities and a more sophisticated (but far less fun) shower and WC.
This is also where you'll find the pool and the underground bar, which operates on an honour system and has all sorts of games and entertainment.

The Angouleme area:
Angouleme is a historic walled city, home of the National Comics and Image Centre and the venue of the historic vintage car race 'Circuit des Ramparts' in the autumn. In the old town of Angouleme there is a wide choice of gourmet restaurants, pavement café's, bistro's and shops.
La Voute is close to restaurants and bars in Hautefaye, Marthon, Rozet, Charras, Varaignes, Panivol and Javerlhac. Many of the local restaurants offer 5 course lunches with wine for around €14. During July & August, visit the pretty village of Varaignes for their weekly open air BBQ.
The market towns of Montbron, with monthly Brocante, Piegut, Nontron and La Rochefoucauld, are all close by. A Wednesday morning visit to the market in Piegut is a must. The towns of Angouleme, Perigueux, Aubeterre and the world famous Cognac are all within easy reach. Brantome the Venice of the Perigord is only 30 minutes drive.
La Voute is situated near the village of Mainzac which is mid-way between Angouleme and Brantome on the border of the Charente and Dordogne, on the edge of the Perigord/Limousin natural park. The area is renowned for its gourmet food and local produce including foie gras, truffles and the delightful local aperitif, Pineau.
We are surrounded by wonderful countryside, fields of sunflowers in early summer abound, broadleaf woodlands full of red squirrels, deer and if you are lucky wild boar, picturesque villages, numerous chateaux, working mills, prehistoric caves, churches and vineyards.
