"Beautiful Property; Super views; Warm Welcome"

A wonderful place to just chill out, go for country walks or visit the numerous local places of interest. Excellent facilities with outdoor pool, hot tub, various games rooms, piano and gym. Close to the small town of Chalais and a short drive to Aubterre and Angouleme. The house is at the top of a ridge with lovely views in both directions. Owners of the property gave us a really warm welcome. We had a wonderful week's stay but unfortunately it was far too short. We will be back.

"A fantastic property with excellent facilities !"

We looked around for suitable properties in the south of France for a few weeks and decided that this was the one that met our requirements...and we certainly weren't disappointed !
Le Mas had everything we were looking for... a swimming pool, hot tub, large communal areas for us to socialise as a large group, a good sized kitchen, luxury bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms ( most being en-suite )...the fact that we were also treated to a pool table, table tennis, gym, games, books...the list goes on ! In value for money terms, we couldn't fault it !
We were greeted by Sally & Mark as soon as we arrived and they made arrangements for us locally... six of us went river kayaking which I would definitely recommend to appreciate the local countryside and we also had a fantastic meal at the chateau in Chalais, which was very reasonably priced for what we ate !! We visited the market in Chalais on the Monday morning, where we bought local excellent fresh fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, cheese...everything to keep us sustained for a few days.
Mark & Sally even ordered the best weather of the year for us during our weeks stay ! + 35 centigrade every day :-)
What more can we say...fantastic place all round and DEFINITELY recommended for a group of 10-12 adults or family of similar size !

"Feels like a home from home - perfect"

A wonderful house with all the facilities needed for a large group of people and plenty of space too. Perfect for young families too. The owners who live nearby are extremely attentive to all your requirements. So perfect we want to go back next year. Highly recommended.

"Exquisitely Beautiful Manor House - and a fantastic holiday!"

From the moment we arrived at this wonderful house we knew we were in for a treat of a holiday.

Sally and Mark welcomed us with wonderful touches around the rooms - everything was so clean and welcoming.

The facilities are absolutely fantastic... the house is massive and there's so many things to do! We all got much better at pool and table tennis and relaxing with a drink in the hot tub become a daily occurrence in the evenings!

There's a lot to do in the surrounding areas - we really enjoyed exploring the nearby town of Angouleme and enjoyed a great day trip to Bordeaux - Sally and Mark were on hand to advise us where to park and what to see.

We would fully recommend Le Mas to any group who want a french getaway.
