About this location
The Poitou-Charentes region
The area has a long history of royal connections with England and is very popular with Brits. Our climate is generally warmer in the summer, is much more reliable (if setting a day for a barbecue - you can generally be sure of having one) and it's an unusual day when you can't have all of your meals outside. Winters are as cool or even cooler but usually shorter.
Situated in a quiet rural area with superb access to the UK (via Road, Rail or Air) and ideally placed for such towns as Limoges with its porcelain factories, Poitiers and Angouleme. Cognac and the brewers that are so well known is easily reached and for those who want to the sea - La Rochelle with its own uniquely pleasant weather is just over an hour away. The property is also ideal for anyone needing a base while looking for a house

"Beautiful setting, excellent accomodation, very high standard"
Pool amazing and gardens beautiful. We had lots of fun as a young family playing hide and seek and chase. The pool was huge and the accomodation was spotless- the cleanest I have been to. The local area is exquisite. The weather was so warm that we did not explore to its full potential. We definitely want to go back with exteded family and rent both gites. A fab holiday.

"Highly recommended gite to relax and enjoy the surroundings"
We (2 adults and 11 year old daughter) had a most fantastic week at the gite. Managed to perfection by the owners and their delightful dog, we enjoyed the private pool and the surroundings, both around the gite and the villages nearby. All you need to chill and recharge your batteries is available and you can do as little or much as you like. Plenty of historical visits, Valleey de Signes (Monkey World) where you can spent an entire day and much more. We are definitely contemplating on returning to the gite again in future, there is still so much more to explore in the area. Many thanks to Richard, Patsy and of course Josie to make it a week to remember :o)

"An exception gite, superbly equiped"
We had a wonderful stay in this excellent gite that is sited in amazing grounds. I doubt the tranquillity could be surpassed in a habited area. I suspect we will be back in the future.
Do take detailed maps of the area, or a good sat-nav. We had the latter and found everything we wanted. There are also some really good restaurants within easy reach.
