"Spacious French house on edge of lovely village."
We enjoyed very much this comfortable French house in a lovely old village. The house has all amenities and is very spacious and attractive. Nice long garden with BBQ , loungers , table and chairs. Large bright kitchen and cool lounge . Very comfortable beds in large bedrooms . Books, TV with English satellite channels, DVDs , Videos and games available. Nice quiet situation but only 8-10 minutes walk to Vouvant with cafes , shops , art galleries , river walks , and historic ruins. Parking outside of house or in quiet car park 20 meters across minor road .Near to a large forest with waymarked walks and drives .
Thank you for your comments.

"Very clean and spacious"
We really enjoyed our holiday at Le Vivier. The house was wonderful, really clean, spacious and it had a lovely garden with barbeque. It is also a lovely quiet area so you can really relax and get away from it all. It was very useful having two bathrooms so the children had there own bathroom upstairs and we had ours downstairs. The house is on three levels so it is not suitable for very young children.
The reason I have given the rating as very good and not excellent is because there was no television service, just a screen and a DVD player which did not bother us too much because most of it would have been in French anyway.
We are installing satellite tv in the house later this month.
