This was our second trip to stay at La Mainson Seronera with Steve and Izzy.
Lovely friendly couple who are more than happy to go the extra mile to ensure we had a lovely stay both times, giving us all the information we needed of near-by places to see and welcomed us with a tasty welcome basket!
The house is an idyllic beautiful building that really fits the French Countryside side get-away way we had in mind and more. The lovely pool was super on our first holiday as we went in the middle of the summer and it was very hot! The surrounding fields make it a very relaxing and private which is wonderful.
There is plenty to do a small car journey away, like horse riding for a couple of hours for a very reasonable rate (Under 20 Euros!) We went kayaking down the most beautiful river called La Tardoire which was really magical, as if it was straight out of a fairytale! On our second day we had our own picnic on a small beach by a local lake and in summer you can also do water sports there, which would be a lot of fun for the family.
All-in-all- brilliant place, so good, we went back again!! …
Holiday Barn private heated pool Wifi in Charente
A fantastic week in The Barn
What a fantastic house! We spent 1 week here and loved every minute of it. We had a mixture of good and bad weather and the house was perfect for both (entertaining/eating/relaxing etc.). All areas are light and spacious and finished to the highest standard. The heated pool was a lovely temperature and regardless of the weather we were able to swim in it every day. The owners have carefully thought about guests with young children, which means that you don't need to bring anything along with you, apart from their favourite cuddly toy. There are no real issues regarding child safety, you just need to manage the environment in a normal and rational way. The surrounding area is as tranquil as can be and all the noise you will make jumping in and out of the pool will only disturb the local horses and cows. The local town is 5 minutes down the road and has everything you could possible need.
We would highly recommend staying here

Fantastic Location, lovely gite
We have recently returned from a wonderful relaxing break at Chez Beaugis. The Gite and gardens are lovely, the plunge pool a welcome bonus in the heatwave.Lynn and Ken are so welcoming and friendly with nothing being too much trouble; we were invited round for drinks and snacks on their wonderful terrace. There was a very good welcome pack of food waiting for us on our arrival which was very much appreciated.
Chez Beaugis is set in beautiful countryside with lots to see and do within a short ride away; Lynn and Ken have lots of information in the Gite regarding things to see and do, restaurants to visit, markets to browse etc. We had a lovely time there and would thoroughly recommend it to others.
Thank you Lynn and Ken for everything. …
